I see we've got a schedule for the fullsize frame, and that the 10mm/.45 frame is to follow. JR, any idea on when we might see the midsize frame? My wife's carry gun, a G19, needs this kind of grip reduction, and I intend to match mine with hers. Any idea on timeline for the G19/23 size would be appreciated.

I am looking forward to building a special run of these guns to meet production for both IDPA and USPSA. It is my understanding we will need to build 2000 pistols in one year? If we are able to work it out I will be sure to take every part that is currently listed as "illegal" and incorporate them into our design. Light weight strikers, stainless guide rods, fiber optic sights, front serrations, magwells, whatever they call illegal I want it on the gun!

The 19/23 will follow right after the release of the Timber Wolf in April. I figure this compact frame should be available by Winter, just in time for Christmas

JR, I have been lurking this thread since it was started. To say that Iam very excited about the new frame would be an understatement. I have bought several lonewolf products and have always had great customer service. Keep up the good work!

Another question - have you guys considered making/contracting a decal-style grip that fits the LWD frame shape? I know it's a farther out concern, but we'[re trying to think of everything. :D I'd hate to have to take a soldering iron to one of these to keep it grippy.

Have you stress tested these frames to see if they are at least as strong as the original glock frame? Does it pass the Frisbee test? What about stress sideways such as can happen in abuse situations etc?

How do you know that your polymer will stand up and last as long as other manufacturers?

I'd only be interested if it took stock parts in the frame.

That frame looks fantastic! A quick question, will the trigger reach be shorter on this frame?

matteblack: Yes the trigger reach is shorter. A full 1/8 shorter than the smallest grip reduction offered by anyone. Its smaller than the CCF metal frame.
cbburke: The real world proves everything breaks sooner or later. If you have something that has not broke you aint playing hard enough! The truth of the matter has nothing to do with "if it breaks". What matters is how the problem is resolved. Lone Wolf lifetime guarantees everything we manufacture. No problem.

Timberwolf is what we call the frame. It is a direct replacement for Glock models 17,17L,22,24,31,34,35,37.
We expect to start shipping this April. Cost will be around $200, internals run about $40.

Quick question, is the button on the backstrap only on the integrated laser option?

Thank you

PS X2 on photos!

Kind of a silly question, but I'm curious....

When a frame is bought, does it have to be received as a specific caliber or can it be 'logged in' by the FFL as a 'Multi' caliber gun(ie. like some AR15 lower receivers)?

I confess that I'm GAP curious & was thinking this might be a way to give it a try without buying an entire gun.

Hey JR, could you let us know when they are available to buy. I'm ready!

I know you said "April" - What date?

I cant supply photos because the only ones we have are of the prototypes we built in January. A good photo of that frame is on our home page www.lonewolfdist.com

The button on the back strap is an option. If you decide to get one of our integral lasers you would use a back strap with a button to activate the laser.

All the Timberwolf frames will have to be transferred to a FFL. They will be logged in as "multi cal" good for use as a 17,17L,22,24,31,34,35,37 (9/40/357/45GAP)

Unfortunately April 1st delivery is right out. The way we are running now I suspect the end of April. I will provide a delivery update mid April or sooner.

I'll never understand grip reductions. I need a grip about twice the size of the standard Glock grip. A ways bigger than say, an Ergo overmolded AR grip. Then I'll be interested. Looks like this is made for the market (obviously a good thing), like most of their stuff. Hope they don't get any farther behind in 9mm slides/barrels due to it...

As soon as we get the molds fired up I will let GT members know the frames are available. That's right, GT members get first shot at them
