FYI: We are almost sold out of the TimberWolf frames. I do not expect the remaining to last much longer. The link will not allow a purchase once the qty is reached so there will be no doubt when its over.
The frames I have on-hand are shipping now. The remaining will ship late next week. I am going to re-post the offer this last time
Oh yah, testing went as planned. We received 8 prototype receivers and shot several hundred rounds of 9mm & 40 S&W through them. Yahoo... Things are looking pretty good. The only problem we ran into is with our own SF trigger housings. We should have the problem corrected within the next 4 weeks (mold changes).... Just in time for the regular production. But this leaves us with a slight problem regarding the prototype. If you order a TimberWolf prototype frame you MUST HAVE A SF trigger housing to use it.
I have a limited amount of factory SF trigger housings on hand, and they all have 10/45 ejectors. If you plan to use a factory SF TH you will have to remove the 10/45 ejector from it, remove the 9/40 ejector from your standard TH and install it in the SF TH. Unfortunately, when my SF TH are gone, that's it until I locate more. I am scrambling to find more right now! If you have your own SF TH I will ship your prototype frame first. Sorry guys, chalk this up to "crap I don't control"
HERE IT IS, FINALLY, I am going to release this special link to order the TimberWolf prototype frame. 120 pcs are available here on GT, 30 will go to inside customers. 150 total collector frames!
If you have an established account with LWD please change your shipping info to reflect your dealers address.
If this is your first order please use your real shipping address and list your dealers address in the comment section.
Here is the deal.
The whole idea of this prototype offer is: each person will have a complete gun at his disposal. Your gun will guarantee the T&E session will happen because your going to gut your own gun to complete the test.
You can try to purchase the parts necessary from me however I may not have them all in stock at this point in time. If you want a complete parts list, check out the parts schematic on our web site.
The TimberWolf frame will work for G17,17L,22,24,31,34,35,37 pistols. It will include the grips, mag release and SF trigger housings (as long as I have them). The std TH will not work in the TimberWolf frames. All other parts should transfer over.
You get the frame at $75 +$10 S&H. The guys with their own SF TH go first so tell me you have a SF TH in the comment section of your order and it will roll first (give me a few days to get home because I am still at the NRA convention).
The rest of you guys... I have a limited amount of SF TH so I will fill the orders until they are gone.
You can only order one (1) of these prototypes so don't get greedy and try for 2. If you do, I will end up canceling both orders.
Follow the instructions in the link "must ship to FFL" Don't screw up cause your order will be cancelled.
When you receive the frame I expect you to assemble it with the parts you have on hand and shoot 1,000 rounds in the next couple days.
I will provide a web link (soon). It will have a brief list of questions I need answers to regarding frame performance. Please fill out the questionnaire ASAP.
THANK YOU to everybody who helped put this together and plans to contribute their time & ammo towards a great community project. I have discussed this offer with my peers in the firearms industry. They all feel I am one CRAZY SOB for putting up this offer but also concede it is so WACO that it just might work!
I have no doubt this offer is an outstanding opportunity for everybody involved! You watch and see , other manufactures will follow suit with similar offers. You guys are great, you guys made this possible, I really do appreciate all your support.
