Storm Lake barrel question

Since I've been unable to find a used 6" barrel, I'm about to splurge on a new one from Storm Lake. I thought about Lone Wolf but I've heard several people complaining about them.

Some sites say they are "drop in" and some say "semi drop in".

My questions are, have any of you had to get your Storm Lake fitted by a gunsmith? How will I know if it needs modification by a gunsmith (i.e. Slide won't close, won't chamber a round, etc.)?

I have had a few Storm Lake 10mm barrels. They were drop in with no fitting required, accuracy was as good as stock.

You can tell if it needs fitting as it won't go into battery when slid into the slide, the barrel hood won't fit in the cut out of the slide. I had to fit one so called drop in KKM barrel, it didn't take much at all to get it locking up cleanly, fine stone stuff.

Glad to hear it. Any issues with leading in yours?

My .40 to 9mm conversion barrel dropped in without any fitting, and it works like a charm. I've only read good reports on KKM barrels.

Yeah, I was going to say KKM. Kevin makes some sweet barrels. I have a Wolf 'Blind marked' barrel and a KKM for my either of my Glock 20s and I prefer the KKM over any other. I've shot Storm Lake, but had to fit it for my S&W M&P Pro 9 for some reason.
