got nothing but time...will wait patiently for that g31 frame!!
Since I didn't have the patience to read all 14 pages, please forgive me if this has been asked.
Since, as has been discussed on here before, "the frame is the gun", are these going to have to ship through a FFL?
Yes, FFL transfer required
Forgive me if this has already been asked, but is Lone Wolf considering a frame for the 26/27 size?
Those come after the 20/21's..... Right JR? C'mon, you know you want to...
J.R. "Sorry MY BAD" I had WAY too much coffee that day (didnt mean to be an A.H.), But in my defense I did find a NEW CCF frame in stainless for way under $300.00 on sale on the net just prior to writing that silly statement, and I like how a heavy weight gun hangs on target durring rapid fire (one of my nit picks with my G23), however even though Ive read a number of test reveiws of the CCF frames. . . I hadnt heard the other negatives you mentioned before so thanks for the update. I do really like your concept of a built in tunable laser sight, closer to vertical grip angle (Ala 1911) and I do kinda have small hands to the point of constantly wishing for a much smaller grip frame and I will definitely be looking forward to the G23 offering when available (I want one! even if its not heavy the way I like it), and if you really wanna make me happier than a baby in a barrel full of pacifiers . . offer a trigger systym for my glock that feels like a Para LDA trigger system and offer the whole thing out the door under $400.00 and my dreams will have come true! but untill then (the G23 offering) I guess I'll just keep on dreaming.
I liked the LWD frame that I held so much that I've been looking for a good deal on an upper assembly to go with it since I held one
JR - can I come up and drool over your shop one weekend?
According to JR the frame runs are as follows:
Based on that I would assume there are no plans for a G26/27 sized frame.
JR, any news? Sorry to be so impatient. How about some new pics?
Me too, recently thinking about getting a 23 and the other day I thought about just doing it your way, buy a piece at a time, make it a little more affordable for me. If I start with the slide first, will I have a frame before too much longer?
No good news yet but we should have something very soon.
Please sign me up for the frame testing. I have four hundred rounds ready and more on the way.
Guys, on the below pic, does it look the the beveled nose on the LW slide doesn't match up with the new LW squared frame (2 toned example, not the long slide)? Seems a shame if this is what winds up in full production for the frame without a beveled option...
Old pic.... issue resolved awhile ago
JR any word on the frames?
Hey, I would like to know, from looking at that pic, would we have to change the spring rod when adding a comp to the gun?
By the looks of the pictures, is it safe to assume that you will NOT be making a backstrap that will make the grip the same size as the current Glock frame? Pictures look like a "small" or "medium" type back strap.
I don't mind the normal Glock size and I would like to install a magwel, but if the grip size is not the same (or can be made the same) as a Glock frame I don't think any magwel would fit... that would force me back to buying a stock Glock and working from there to build a competition pistol.
Sorry if this has been talked about before.
Do you mean guide rod and recoil spring?
It depends on the caliber and the ammo you are going to run through the comp. If you are going to use weaker ammo, you will need a lighter recoil spring.
Yeah, that. .357 Sig and .45 ACP. I read somewhere that you'd have to use a metal guide rod, any truth to this? And, no, if I'm using a comp, it's not because I'm going to push weaker ammo through it...
A metal guide rod is not required, it makes it easier if you want to change spring weight but you do not need to have one when using our comps.
