View Full Version : Lonewolf glock factory style porting questions.
Does Lonewolf glock factory style porting require the stock slide to be refinished after being ported? Also which of these guns would benefit the most from the porting, a G21 or G23? I dont carry the 21 very often and it is mostly just a range gun, but the 23 will be a carry gun along with my 26 once T-shirt weather is over and I am wearing thicker clothing.
LWD uses an EDM to port slides & barrels. You can refinish the part if you like but the majority of shooters simply leave it as is.
The problem with porting the factory slides & barrels is the high content of carbon in the material. If the EDM electrode comes in contact with a flake of carbon it will "blow out" the burn and ruin the electrode & part. We have done a lot of factory slides & barrels and experience approximately 1% blow out rate. It is unfortunate and unavoidable, you need to consider this possibility before proceeding with a port job.
BTW: There is NO danger of a blow out with stainless slides or barrels.
