Lone Wolf Barrel in a G26

When I realized Lone Wolf made a barrel this short I ordered one. I don't know, in retrospect, why I did. After all, a G26 is essentially a combat pistol for self defense so why put a match grade barrel in one?

Perhaps I did it just because I could. However, here's a problem I didn't anticipate: I buy (or trade something) lead reloads from a friend and they run just fine in stock Glock barrels but there's lots of controversy over the use of lead ammo in Glock barrels and I'd heard that wasn't a problem with the Lone Wolf barrels. But because the machining is more precise in them some of the reload rounds won't fully chamber as the casing has an almost imperceptible bulge. The dangers are obvious.

Fortunately they run fine in my Beretta Nano.

I guess I could send it back to Lone Wolf and ask them to ream it out a bit? Or should I leave it alone and just shoot factory ammo with it...

Anything with a tight chamber is going to be less forgiving for out of spec rounds. I'd suggest your buddy resize a little better. Since you are most likely using the lead reloads for range use only, you could just use them to practice malfunctions.

I ordered a KKM match barrel, which is supposed to get to me next week. It's for my G21, primarily for shooting lead. If it's too tight, I'll still keep it, and shoot my lead loads in my Smith 625 .45ACP revolver. It eats anything and everything.

Good luck,

AK
