+1 to above statement. I have had issues with the Lone Wolf barrels that I had but none with the above.

Wow, $165 though? Lone Wolf is ~$100.

Lw has a very tight chamber.40 SW SAMI spec is .423 for a loaded bullet but that wont fit in a LW barrel. LW wants you to send them 4 dummy rounds and the will ream the chamber out to fit the dummy rounds.
So if you are going to order it to shoot either send in your dummy rounds first or plan on doing it after you get the barrel.
LW will take care of you it is just going to take a little extra time to get up and running.

I would not recommend 17th Century bullets in any 21st Century pistol. Find another way to cut costs.

I wondered about that, some of my reloads get stuck in the chamber... Good to know, I'll contact them. Thanks for the heads up.

Lone Wolf is barely worth $100 at best.
KKM's are easily worth over 65% more IMO.
MUCH better rifling than LW.

He will save at least $50/1000 rounds. It will pay for itself in 2-3 months.

If he scrounges lead and casts his own, he will save $120/1000 rounds. His .40 reloads will cost 3.5 cents each if he buys 10000 primers at a time. If he's a good loader, his rounds will also be more accurate and of better quality than commercial ammo.

I have shot a lot of rounds in both a Storm Lake barrel(G-34) and a Lone Wolf Barrel(G-19) they both have worked 100% and are very accurate with reloads and new ammo.

I just wonder who makes the Lone Wolf ---

I load 200 grain lead SWC for my 1911 and it shoots a 5shot group under 2 1/2 inches at 50 yards
