Installed my Lone Wolf conversion barrel into my Glock 27 and went to the range with 150 rounds of 115 grain Winchester FMJ and two Glock 26 magazines. I had 6 FTE within the first 50 rounds the next 100 ran fine. The six FTE had the empty casing half way out of the chamber with the next live round in the magazine jammed under the empty casing. Should I change the extractor, or just say the hell with it and stay with the OEM 27 barrel?

Is it written anywhere with the Lone Wolf barrel conversion barrel to use a middleweight or heavier barrel???...my Storm Lake didn't include that but it has been reported that the conversion barrels seem to prefer the 124GR and heavier bullets for 100% reliability...

my own experience with my conversion barrel in my G23 wanna be 19 follows that...115GR works but there is on occasion (2 times in 100 rounds) failures to go into full battery...with 124GR mine has been 100%...

Check threads or responses by member Barth here...he has many conversion barrels and tons of experience...I seem to remember some issues as you describe with the smaller GLOCKs...

Thank you, I'll have to try heavier bullet.

Thank you, I'll have to try heavier bullet.

Yup, Yup I only run 124/127 gr in my 40-9mm conversion barrels.
and have never ever had a failure.

Even OEM 9mm guns can have issues with low powered 115 gr 9mm ammo.

I personally have been running and like -
50rd - 9mm NATO Winchester Ranger 124 grain FMJ +P RA9124N Ammo - $13.95

First 50 it gave you problems, next 100 it ran fine?

Sounds like it needed a little break in. Put another 100 rounds through it and see how it does.
