147gr vs 124+P

My gun keeps jamming when it goes to eject the shell. What ammo would you buy that you think would eliminate this.

Gold Dot 124 +p (or standard) or Ranger +p+ deliver the goods.

Unless you are running a suppressor don't bother with sub-sonic. Velocity is your friend.

The 124 +p Gold Dot is also excellent, but I think the extra bit of recoil in +p or +p+ negates the main advantage of 9mm (rapid follow ups).

Look up the ATK ballistics data on the Gold Dot. Their subsonic 147 does excellent. Passes all FBI protocol tests.

I use both. (124 P+ GDHP / 127 +P+ Ranger T)
Both flawless operation.
But my Storm Lake G27 40-9mm conversion barrel loves GDHPs
Isn't that nice - LOL!

I am running a extended lonewolf barrel with a compensator, knowing that back to my original post what ammo would you recommend for me. Also off topic I am looking for a scope mount for my gen 3 G17, but only want it to mount of the left side then go on top, because I have a Crimson laser that shoots down the right hand side. I want it to be able to attach a holograpic site or something.

I'd fix the problem thats causing it to jam. It shouldn't jam no matter what ammo your using within reason. My glocks have eatin surplus ammo from pakistan made 40 years ago.

Call glock get a prepaid label and get them to fix it for free. Find a gssf match and someone will fix it for free there.

Standard spring is 17 lbs 11 lbs is not correct even to run puffy gamer reloads.

If you have not tried a different range ammo, do so.

Did your pistol feed & function normally with the factory barrel & RSA?

Or, did the problems start to occur after you modified it?

My suggestion would be to go back to the stock barrel and spring assembly, though Lone Wolf is very good about tuning up barrels that aren't shooting quite right or functioning quite properly. I'd give them a call and explain in great detail the trouble that the gun is having, including the specific ammunition that you have had problems with, but before that I would bring the pistol to the range with both barrels and just the stock spring in.

the problem started when i put on the compensator. So then i tried to put an 11lb recoil spring and I still have the problem. I am going to try and call lone wolf tonight.

Your Generation 3 G-17 shouldn't jam on 147-grain ammo. I recommend installing the OEM barrel and recoil spring.
