A couple of days ago I finally got back my LWD barrel for my G30 standard length. So off to try those two barrels out for the G30 and the G27. It only took about 104 days for both barrels to be corrected. Great customer service.

I had bought barrels from KKM to replace the LWD barrels when they would not feed my reloads so I took them along and also a Paraordinance P-14-45, a Sig 226 .40, and a Sig 2340 .40 to try out three different bullet shapes in both the 45 and 40 calibers.

LWD G27 barrel - - functioned fine in all three different rounds of 40 ammo as did the two Sigs. No FTF or FTE and everything was working Ok. The accuracy of the LWD G27 barrel was a whisper behind the KKM barrel and about even with the two Sigs.

LWD G30 barrel - - had about a 30% FTF and FTE with the three different bullet designs for the 45ACP. All the 45Auto bullet designs functioned flawlessly in the P14-45!!! Still puzzled about that one but one of the bullet designs was that H&G 205g round that is notorious for causing feeding problems. The P-14-45 out shot the LWD and the KKM guns but that P-14-45 has been modified extensively and is superaccurate. The KKM 45 barrel feed and extracted all the different bullet designs and the accuracy of the KKM was just about the same as the LWD.

I am happy about having a G27 barrel that will function with any lead reload I throw at it and those lead reloads also work in 2 other .40 caliber shooters I have. Well pleased with the work done on it.

The G30 barrel is still a miss and will be the paperweight for sure. I'm not aware of any additional steps that I can take to make it work when the same rounds function in my other 45ACP shooters as well as two of my buddies 45ACP's.

The guys in the shop seemed to be apologetic for the delay and did perform on the 40 barrel, they also sent along a shirt and hat as a compensation.

The management of the company seems to take other positions. While I appreciated the offer and the effort, the results of lengthy delay were only about 50% so I won't be a LWD customer in the future. Thanks but not thanks.
I'm glad the 40's worked out for you. As for the 45, I don't know what all bullet(s) you used, but if they are anything like the HG 68, the shoulder is simply too abrupt for reliable functioning in a Glock with any barrel. People say they run "SWC" in their Glocks, but when you look at the bullet they are using, it will have a subtle and rounded shoulder that IMO is really a truncated cone. The extracting case hangs up on the shoulder of the live round under it in the magazine and I don't see how any barrel could change that.

On a happy note: LWD has the "GT Hole" reamer in house and ready to go. If anybody out there has the stomach to read through all these posts I guess they should be rewarded! I am more than happy to offer a chamber ream for free. All you have to do is ship us the barrel and include a simple note requesting the GT Hole. We will knock it right out and get it turned around within the next couple days.

If you have any doubt regarding your load fitting the chamber please do the SMART thing and include a couple dummy rounds so we can verify.

JR,

Just want to say "Thank You" for posting here, and for somehow tolerating the non-stop/continual trolling that is happening...

Both of my LW 40-9 conversion barrels (for the G23 & 27), & my LW .40 G27 barrel, function flawlessly.

Thanks again.

Didn't mean to sound trollish mate. I'm glad they are finally coming (two ordered). Been waiting sometime. Looking forward to see how they work. Cheers.

You're not trolling. A troll is someone who goes out of his way to make posts that only inflame things. You are a long time poster on this forum with a long history of making responsible posts. This is true for the others who have been critical of LWD. Anybody who frequents this board knows this. Of course, someone who just pops in here to do a drive-by wouldn't know that. Maybe rogue should spend a little time seeing what the critics in this thread have been contributing around here for the last ten years or so.

Giving negative feedback on a product you paid for is hardly. "Trolling". It called a "review by the consumer".

I'm sorry, I didn't realize. Somethings are just unforgivable.

Don't think I was talking about you..?

Was just having a thought, when accidentally on purpose, I posted aloud.

Two barrels. Should have them this week. Looking forward to it. Wasn't an emergency to have them asap. No worries.

I don't recall when you placed your order but my barrel "corrections" only took 104 DAYS.

Was your order for new barrels or for the GT Hole special?

As I posted only one of the "corrected" barrels would function and the same 45ACP ammo that I reloaded would function in my other 45 Autos and some of my buddies 45 autos but not in my 45ACP G30 barrel that was "corrected".

I wanted to end up with a barrel that would function with any reloaded 45ACP ammo not just the ones that I produce so that the barrel may have some value to someone else, hence I did not send them any of my reloads. By then I had already moved one and bought the KKM barrels which are working out great.

My impression of LWD is that the guys in the shop are concerned about their work and turn around time but the management has a business model with a chip on their shoulder about their barrels being able to function with factory loads. As has been referred to many times in this thread they seem to miss the reason that customers buy their Glock barrels.

Here's hoping that they work out for you; as for me I will look elsewhere for any product offered by LWD.
