Once they actually ship you'll get movement on the tracking number.



9mm Conversions:

LWD 9mm conversion barrels will allow you to shoot 9mm ammunition from your Glock 40 S&W or 357 Sig handgun. These conversion barrels are easy to use and install the same as any other barrel, simply drop it in, no gunsmithing or other modifications are required. We do recommend you use the correct 9mm magazine with these conversion barrels to guarantee reliable feeding.


About 1% of our 9mm conversion barrels are affected by the poor performance of low powered 115 grain ammunition causing a Failure To Eject (FTE). A good example of ammunition that is “most likely to fail” is Winchester White Box (WWB). This rare failure is too low a percentage to make an issue, however it is one we are well aware of. The fix to resolve this issue is quite simple:

1    Clean and lube your slide and barrel.
2    Shoot 1 mag to 1 box of good quality +P or +P+ ammunition through the barrel.
3    Try the FTF ammunition again. If it runs... great!  If you experience more failures you will have a couple choices to make:
Fix A        Reduce the recoil spring weight to 13 lbs. Cost is about $25 for stainless steel guide rod and reduced power spring.  See Guide Rods HERE
Fix B        Shoot 124 gr or a better quality 115 gr ammunition exclusively. The FTF 115 gr ammunition you are currently using is no longer a valid option.
 
What causes this problem? Several issues come into play.
1    The 40 slide and (40 conversion) barrel are thicker than standard 9mm slides and barrels. This extra thickness equates to more weight. The combined extra weight taps the energy of the "weak 115 gr ammunition” to its complete demise. It simply lacks in power and fails to reliably eject the spent round.
2    Every once in awhile a Failure To Feed/Failure To Eject (FTF/FTE) is caused by a fit issue. We resolve fit issues by pumping +P or +P+ ammunition through the gun. This hot ammunition provides extra pressure and the pressure will positively align any and all components. Once they are all aligned there is no longer a fit issue. The FTF/FTE is usually resolved.
 
FYI: Several manufactures are currently producing low powered 115 gr 9mm loads. This ammunition is also known to produce failures in all standard model Glock 9mm pistols.


40S&W to .357SIG Conversions:
It is recommended that you use .357SIG magazines for the most reliable feeding.

3.5# Connectors:

Everybody seems to want a 3.5lb connector because it is "THE BEST". The truth of the matter is a 3.5lb connector delivers the lightest trigger pull BUT it also delivers the longest pull available. A lot of shooters confuse the 3.5 connector as a mushy system because it has so far to travel. It is hard for some shooters to grasp this theory because they are thinking less (3.5lb) is best? Try to think of it this way: You want to load a 55 gal drum into the bed of your truck.
1 You get a 30 foot plank and roll the barrel along effortlessly but it takes a long time to get the barrel in the truck. (3.5lb connector)
2 You get a 15 foot plank and roll the barrel along. This requires more effort but it doesn't take much time to get there. (5lb connector)
3 You get a 5 foot plank and roll the barrel along. Man I noticed the effort here but the barrel was instantly in the truck! (8lb connector)

How do I get the best Glock trigger (for me):

Lone Wolf 3.5 connector
Lone Wolf Ultimate Trigger Stop
Lone Wolf 4 lb striker spring
Lone Wolf 6 lb trigger spring

Polish the trigger bar "birds head" flat and edge where it contacts the connector also the raised angled edge where it contacts the firing pin safety and the "kick up" edge where it engages the striker leg. Polish the leading edge of the firing pin safety and the face. Polish the face of the striker leg.
Squirt a little "Flitz" between all bearing surfaces of the trigger system. (everything you polished) Keep it there for a few hundred rounds then clean all the parts and check the bearing surfaces. They should be lapped in completely. If so, replace the Flitz with a small amount of quality grease or oil. If not, add a little more Flits and check it again in a couple hundred rounds.
Special note: You can use this recipe with any connector, 3.5/5/8. Try them all and pick the one best suited to your style shooting.


FYI: If you have a Glock that has a couple thousand rounds through it your trigger is already lapped in. If you replace the trigger bar or connector in this gun I guarantee it will feel terrible. Any part that is replaced into a lapped system needs to be lapped in itself before a reliable evaluation can be made.

Striker springs:

There are 3 striker springs offered. The standard factory issue striker spring is 5 lbs.

This "reduced power" spring will provide a smoother/easier trigger pull. It should be noted that the 4 lb spring can cause misfires so if it is used you MUST prove its reliability and shoot several hundred rounds without incidence. The combination of this spring with a 6# trigger spring can possibly cause trigger reset/safety engaging issues. If this happens you'll need to swap back to either a 5# trigger spring or firing pin spring.


Glock factory and aftermarket manufactures offer a 6 lb striker spring. This "increased power" spring will provide additional inertia to reliably fire hard primers commonly used with military machine gun ammunition.


Reloading Issues:

Remove the barrel from the slide. Drop a factory round into the chamber. If the factory round fits slightly lower than the top of the barrel hood you are looking good to go.  If the factory round does not sit slightly below the top of the barrel hood you will need to return the barrel to LWD and we will fix it right away.

The problem is most likely caused by an expanded or swelled case head that has not been fully resized. Ammunition that is fired from an original Glock factory barrel produces (very) expanded case heads. This expansion occurs because of the large chamber used in Glock factory barrels. Many reloaders think they are full length resizing their brass but this simply is not true. The sizer die has a beveled area located at the entrance of the die mouth. This beveled area helps guide the straight walled cartridge into the die. The case rim is held with a shell holder. The area of the cartridge that is between this beveled area and the shell holder never gets resized completely.

If you drop your reload into a LWD barrel and the case head (rim) sits above the barrel hood this is a good indication your brass is bulged and not resized correctly. Here is 2 ways to fix this problem:

1    Run your loads through a case gauge before shooting. Many reloaders currently use Dillon or Midway stainless case gauges however these manufactures are known to have liberal tolerances. If your Dillon or Midway case gauge works with the LWD chamber you are good to go. If not, we recommend you use the EGW case gauge. The EGW is known to run tighter tolerances. Once the reload is fired from the LWD barrel you should not have a feed problem again.

2    You can return your barrel to Lone Wolf and include 4 or 5 dummy rounds of your reloads (no powder or primer) and we will open up the chamber to accommodate your loaded round.

*If you are reloading 40 S&W or 10mm we recommend you use the Redding GRX push through die to remove 100% of the case budge.

If you'd like to have your barrel reamed to your reloads we charge $30 (plus return shipping)

Guide rod spring slipping over screw tip?

The issue is with the recoil spring, not the guide rod or screw tip. We contacted ISMI regarding the spring failures (slipping over the screw tip). This is caused buy an oversized ID of the spring. The OD is within spec, the ID is off by .05 or more. ISMI has no plans at this time to resolve the issue.

When we assemble the guide rods here at LWD we test the assemblies to see if the spring will slip over the screw tip. We actually catch most failures at this time however it is evident (now) others could fail given time. The fix is to simply install a retainer washer.
