I have a threaded one for my 19 and love it. No problems at all. I know a couple people with the conversion barrels as well. I have never personally heard a complaint about them.

Id rather pay $60 more and get a quality barrel from Storm Lake, KKM, etc.

I had a Lone Wofl for approximately 2 days. Almost had to beat the fucker into a G19 (I have Storm Lake threaded barrels in 2 17's and 2 19's that never had the slightest issue) then when the gun was finally back together the threads were so far out of spec my TiRant wouldn't even screw on 1/4 of the way. Dumped it the next day and bought another Storm Lake. Seen several other similar problems with Lone Wolfs from different customers.

I haven't heard of these problems with them...I have had over 3 and all were fine.

I am currently on their wait list for two more that will be threaded (I had a threaded barrel before but I didn't have my TiRant 45 yet).

The main problem with these is getting them in stock.....

Try searching eBay for "Glock threaded". I bought 2 LWD threaded barrels last week.

I'm high on the list for a threaded, black LWD barrel for my G17. I use a Lonewolf barrel in my G20, and it's excellent. I also have KKM and other brands, and don't see ANY quality difference, either in accuracy or fit and finish, over the Lonewolf. The only reason I'm using the Lonewolf barrel in my G20 is that I get more reloads oiut of my brass with the LWD barrel than with the factory Glock barrel.

While we're making anecdotal bitches on the internet, I'm sure some of you will remember all the stories of the sheered-off lugs on the Storm Lake Glock barrels.

I have 3 LWD Glock barrels in use and they are as good of qualist as a KKM or Storm Lake and even put the Barsto I have for my 35 to shame. Personally I would recommend them to anyone.

I believe you can order it without the logo, it just costs more.

You can have any barrel blind marked and I believe the black oxide is blind marked anyways. I have blind marked barrels only.

I want one and they are always out of stock. I found a dealer that has Glock Threaded barrles for the G21 and G17 and bought one of each. The glock barrels give a little better velocity than after market barrels.

I have a LW 9 conversion in my G23. Top notch in every way. Don't hesitate for a second.

It should only cost more if they etch the logo on and then have to grind it off. Obviously they dont, so unmarked should cost less. I'll never buy any of their products again solely for that reason.

most complaints are tight chamber and short throats that require bullets to be loaded shorter than usual. other than that, they are good. a step up in quality would be a SL or barsto or kkm

Your loss. The etching is purely asthetic and doesnt do anything other than look bad.

LMAO, it's the little things huh?

They have to mark it on the underside of the barrel...so it isn't just a matter of not marking the top and sending you a barrel with absolutely no marking (with their ungodly $9 charge)....it is blind marked. They show the conversion, cal., and or wolf on the underside just at the start of the barrel...but you keep your dignity and pride...

It's advertising. Most manufacturers put their name and/or logo on their product. It benefits them financially -- it has value to them.

Try buying a Coke, a Ford motor vehicle, a Colt lower receiver, a television, computer, etc. without any branding or manufacturer identification on it. Let us know if it costs more than usual.

I'll do that, and a framed portrait of an African shepard to the guy that thought up putting that on LW barrels.

I don't like the emblems any more than the next guy....but, to me, $9 is a small amount when you consider the blind marking and process of putting it aside from the other barrels.


They are great barrels.
