Has anyone put a Lone Wolf 40 -9 conversion barrel in a G27? I was wondering how reliable they work.

I have one that I ran 500 rounds through last month.
Used G26 magazines and had no problems.

Please perform a search. It has been covered here about a billion times.

My LWD .40 -> 9mm conversion is not reliable with poorly resized commercial reloads. These are reloads that would run through an OEM barrel without a problem. The off-the-shelf LWD barrel has "tighter" chamber dimentions than the OEM barrel. You can order the barrel with OEM dimentions if you wish.

The "stock" LWD barrel runs new commercial ammunition and my reloads without a problem (at least mine anyway).

For a range gun, you will need the conversion barrel and some 9mm (26, 19, 17) magazines.

Don't use it for a carry gun with a non-OEM barrel.

I have a LW 40-9 conversion barrel for my Glock 27 and it runs flawlessly. I run it with G26 mags, and have never once had a malfunction.

I would carry it fully converted without hesitation.

I agree. After several thousand rounds, I have never had a malfunction with the 40/9 conversion in my Glock 23. My model 23 is fully converted to 9mm.

Didja' replace the slide? If you didn't it is not fully converted.
