I ran my LW G22 configuration with the revised MR and backstrap yesterday. So far so good. It was only 200 rounds, so I can't say for sure yet, but initially at least the mag release problem, straight back ejection issue, and backstrap issue on reloads all appear fixed by the new parts.

I will run it for a couple matches this month and see how it holds up.

Hey JR...do you have a ship date on the newest run of frames....or were you waiting to get some feedback from the backstrap and mag release?

I love...LOVE the way they feel with the rounded backstrap....kinda like the CZ-75....
The material feels better than a Glock frame too....stronger and more metallic.....

Thanks,
Kyle

Truthfully, I am ready to start the full production now. We made some mods to the mold and run 3 samples a couple weeks ago. Made a few more mods last week and expect to see 3 additional samples this week.

The upgraded backstrap worked great. The upgraded MR didn't hold up for me though. After about ~350 rounds it began dropping mags every time I fire, just like the original. I really like the LW frame but need it to be more reliable. I'm waiting to hear back from JR on upgrading to a production frame.

How about spending less time on the frames and start on a G29 slide.

Sorry, I am just being selfish.

Just reached 1,000 rounds on the new magazine release.

Bad news: It has started releasing the magazine during firing strings. It happened to me twice today. Two different magazines, both relatively (this year) new.

We will soon release the (final version) MR. This version is absolutely the best ever however it may not correct the accidental mag drop issue. FYI: There are multiple issues contributing to this problem that are not present in all prototype frames. If you are not satisfied with the performance of your prototype please return it. Believe me, no hard feelings what so ever! The latest prototypes manufactured last week are FABULOUS! Absolutely no MR issues. All mags drop free, no chance of accidental release.

Congrats. Has been really interesting to watch this process unfold.

Do you still have plans to produce one for the midsize frames (G23)?
Any estimate when they might be available?

Thanks

We are shipping the regular production 17/22 TimberWolf frames now. We will have plenty available for SHOT Show.
I am making arrangements at SHOT to move forward with the 19/23 project. This project should move quickly because the majority of the work is already completed. Once this is put to bed I will move to the 20/21. Realistically, the 20/21 could be underway by Fall 2011
