I think he may be talking about a tapered throat reamer.

I reread JR's last post. I think he had a custom chamber/throat reamer made. So instead of doing it the hard way with a chamber reamer and I then a throat/lead reamer he made everyone wait 6 .months. His excuse is that he didn't know how big to make it. But apparently he knew how big to make the custom reamer. So that makes zero sense other then he was to lazy to do it the hard way using two tools instead of one. The result is the same either way.

You could still get measurements off of the Glock barrels that have been proven to work. Plus SAAMI chamber drawing dimensions. I am also assuming he knows the dimensions of the chambers of the LW barrels.

Colorado: How the task was performed in the past has nothing to do with how it is presently accomplished. Suffice it to say the reamers are in hand, the jobs are processed as requested and in a timely manner.

dfk: Yep, I have the SAMMI chamber drawings. If I remember correctly, you guys spurn SAMMI because your lead loads are outside this dimension? I am pretty confident the GT Hole will work with these loads. If the reload works with other popular guns it will work with ours.

ilgun: First of all, are you sure its not spelled ill-gun? Your snide remarks are persistent indeed! You may soon rise to the rank of supreme leader of all (5) LWD haters. I am told you can tell a lot about the man by looking at his haters. I am honored to have you at my service.

All the Glock barrels I have arewithin SAAMI spec. The Glock barrels will run pretty much everything even some loads past SAAMI specified OAL that I loaded to experiment with.

The point is you left people hanging for 6 months and don't seem to care.

dkf: If it runs in your Glock, Ruger, Colt it should run in our GT Hole. I haven't tried anything with extreme OAL. We will see.

Colorado: "JR don't seem to care" is an inaccurate assumption. I care then, I care now, I will keep on caring clean into the future. All that hatein' is in the past and I cant do anything about it, really its a moot point at this juncture. BTW: Nobody had to wait 6 months if they simply provided dummy rounds. If they insisted on receiving the GT Hole I had to have the reamers built.
We have all the GT Hole reamers in hand and ready to go. If and when a current customer requests such a service will get the red rug treatment

Interesting statement but not a fact.

My 45ACP reloads will work in my Paraordinance 14-45, my friends Colt Commander, my friends XD, my friends Kimber, and my KKM barrel for a G30 but would not work in my G30 LWD barrel with the GT hole.

I have absolutely no explanation as to the reason your barrel rejects your pet load. Because of you and your complaints (a few others too) I plan to give away many, many barrels with the GT Hole chamber. I fully expect to please 95% (+) of these shooters and put this BS thread far behind me. You cant argue with numbers and I am about to stack the deck in my favor.

I'm not a hater. I certainly don't hate you. If I were to see you broke down on the side of the ride, and I knew it was you, I would certainly stop to help you. This is no reason to hate, I'm sorry if you took it that way.

However, I spent money on two of your products only to be disappointed twice. After that, how do you expect a person to feel? Then you come here and insult members? I wouldnt do business with you again because of it, thats just the way life is. I don't care for your attitude, but hate you? Absolutely not.

Glad to help out with your reputation whenever I'm asked.

Hoping for the best for you.

JR-

Take it from someone who was in business for 40 years, you cannot please every customer every time. Based on comments I've been reading here since the beginning of my GT membership, your products and customer service have been very highly rated.

I just purchased a LWD conversion barrel and I plan to buy a complete G19 slide. I trust your company to serve me well.

Sounds like you are trying hard to resolve the pesky issues some folks are raising. I'm not taking sides. I just hope you and your customers end up shakin' hands and moving ahead. Good luck.

I have had folks unhappy with my service. Not many but a few. You can't please everybody and meet everyone's needs.

An 'I'm really sorry we couldn't meet your needs' can go a long, long way.

And those who are still disgruntled? Give them their money back. They will have little to complain about after that.

JMO. Cheers.

Exactly. I have yet to find a SWC or any other lead design that won't feed in my Glock 45ACP. Sure I sometimes have to adjust OAL when starting with a new load but that is to be expected.

Does anyone else have a follow up on the GT hole ream job? I'm referring to the LWD barrel not the customer service.

I sent in two barrels to get the GT hole treatment; one of them a G27 works ok but the other G30 is a no go.

Just wondering what others experience turned out to be.

Lwd

This is my first post and but far from my first rodeo. I think LWD overall has a good reputation for customer service. I feel JRs pain a business owner and manufactures rep.

That being said I recently bought a KKM for one of my g19s because it was american made and because the reviews are very positive. I would consider buying a LWD next time I need a barrel just because you have taken all the time to explain yourself in this thread and I love when a manufacture pays attention to forums and such.

Welcome to GT Hank! You spent your first post commenting on LWD, WOW!
I appreciate your thoughts regarding our business and would like to offer you an opportunity to T&E one of our G19 barrels for a side by side performance comparison to your new KKM.
Please email me your contact/mailing information jr@lonewolfdist.com Let me know the type ammo you are currently using (reloads or factory) I will provide your choice of std chamber or GT Hole. If you are shooting both lead reloads and factory I will send 2 barrels, one with each chamber. All I ask is you post your findings here.

I have zero issues since they did the ream to my G34 barrel. Run over 1000 through it since. I have since converted my G34 to my dedicated 3 gun side arm and and running it real hard with Dawson extended basepads (23 rounds). I would seriously look into your loads, bullet profile and OAL.

Wow

Thank you JR. I will send you my info in a few minutes.

I will be glad to do a side by side test. I have 2 G4 G19s. One was less accurate than my liking. Both have 3.5 lb connectors(ghost) and that is the only mod. I will post info regarding any appreciable accuracy difference and point of impact change. I will test them in both G19s off a bag at a indoor range at 10 and 25. WWB and Hornaday ammo.


Steve.

PS for the record I know no one at Lone wolf and I own no LWD products currently. I am former military and will not compromise my integrity for free stuff. I am pumped though.

I seriously shot those same reloads in my Paraordinance 14-45 without a hitch and in my buddy's Colt Gold Cup and his Kimber also without a hitch.

Interesting enough I tried the stock Glock G30 barrel again and those same reloads ran in it very smoothly. So it doesn't appear to be a problem in other manuf. 45ACP nor in the stock Glock barrel so any angles of feeding would be eliminated.

Still puzzled.....maybe the GT hole was not completed properly .....who knows????

Hi,

I just registered on this sight because I think you all have been unfair to JR. All of his products are wonderful and without him there would be no life itself. It's terrible the way you all lie about him as I know he has a sunny disposition, helps children, and personally drop ships, I mean inspects, every barrel he sells. He stands behind them 90% and only charges a nominal fee to make then work now that he's found it's too expensive to fix all of them for free.

Yours truly,

JR's mother

This is also my 1st post on GT but I have been a reader for sometime now.. I just purchased my 1st lone wolf barrel for my glock 23 gen4. I purchased the 40-9 conversion barrel because I wanted to start shooting lead reloads. I proceeded to purchase 500 of the SmallBall! .356Diameter 9mm Parabellum 125 Grain 9MM RN from Missouri Bullet because I had read good things.. I am finding that in order to get the glock to go into battery I am having to seat the bullets very deep. OAL is 1.045.. I am very concerned about excessive pressure. Does anyone have any idea of what I may me doings wrong or has someone else ran into this issue? Thanks for any help...

If you have any doubts regarding this issue please return the barrel to LWD and include a couple dummy rounds. We will see what chamber is the best match for your load. It will fall into the improved Luger chamber or the GT Hole, either way it free of charge. If you have any questions email me direct at jr@lonewolfdist.com
