    This is all I have for now. When I return from work, I'll take some better pics...

    I was having major issues with the compensator on there, so I did most of my shooting with it removed, and it cured all my issues. I also have it featured about halfway through this video that I did for a contest entry on youtube if you wanted another look...sorry the vid kinda sucks, but you can get a peek here:

    JR, really impressed with what I have seen so far for the WolfPack frame. Question, with you manufacturing your frame, as you stated earlier, you can do pretty much what we want with the grip. My question is in the future is there a possiblility of hybrid type frames being made as a custom item. I am patiently awaiting the G19/23 sized frames for sure but I have a design I would ask you to consider. The G19/23 frame with the G17/22 mag length in the grip area only. Keeping the same barrel length, dust cover area, but with the longer grip. Not sure how many folks here would like to see something like that, but I would for sure pick up two. This could also lead to a G17/22 sized frame with the G19/23 length grip as well. This is why I was wondering if in the future a custom ordered frame to these specs might be possible.

    PS if you decide you would like to test a frame like that let me know I will gladly pay for it and run the obligitory 2000+ rounds through it for ya. Thanks TXPO.

    I have only 400 rounds through my frame as of now as my rear rails are uneven and the slide actually binds when fully rearward. It's so bad the striker is cutting a grove in one side of the trigger bar cruciform due to the offset. I'll get some pics up when I get back home. I also have the mag release and back strap problem as well so this particular frame is pretty much un-useable as-is. To end on a high note however I do like the feel of the frame with the "arched" backstrap and the relief under the trigger guard and "beavertail" are greatly appreciated. I look forward to getting one that works well to try out. J.R. How do I go about getting a different frame to replace this one? Thanks. -Goodspeed

    yours sounds like mine. mine would barely run in 9mm, lots of issues. no problems with .40 and .357sig but shells were still landing at my feet and not throwing as far to the right as I'd like them. but it does feel good.

    I was really thinking about buying one of these frames and building my own glock just to do it, but after hearing the issues with the frame rails and back straps makes me think twice. has lone wolf fixed these issues yet or are they still on going problems.

    Both problems have been fixed. I received my new back straps Friday and can tell you that JR. definitely improved them. He's still working on an improved mag release.

    We will consider custom frames after we produce the standard frames. I agree, there may be a market for a 17 length slide on a 19 frame. We sell a lot of conversions as it is, maybe a frame will do as well? http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Products.aspx?CAT=255

    The grip issue seems to be isolated but it was easily resolved. If you experienced problems with the grips unlocking you need to contact me for replacements.

    Our improved round mag release (prototype) is in use now. This modified version will function equally well in both the TimberWolf frame and Glock factory pistols.

    JR, can you send me a new mag release button? I also had a problem today with my flat back strap coming loose during reloads so can I get one of those too? I don't use the curved back strap but if you have a new one of those, I'd like to try it also

    To all of you expressing concerns.......these are PROTOTYPE frames, the "issues" are being reported so that improvements can be made. Not everyone has had all of these "issues" with their frames.

    No, I cant send anybody a MR yet. It will be 2 to 3 weeks before regular production.

    If you want a grip you need to email me the correct mailing info. I don't think juicespeare1@GT.com will ever arrive?

    Mvician: Well said! FYI: I quit trying to explain that one.

    Pototypes are PROTOTYPES.....as in, they're not expected to be perfect from the start.....I would hope everyody would understand that from the start.

    I think JR made a gutsy move putting the beta frames out there.....which is gonna pay off with a better product in the end...

    ok it sounded like all the frames were having these problems with the mr and the back straps. how about the frame rails? are they still giving problems or has that been resolved also?

    Feel of the frame is fantastic...but I have the uneven rail issue....

    The fired cases keep hitting me in the head, I think due to the slide binding on the uneven rails and running out of "ommpfh" before the case hits the ejecter....but at the 80th round,
    the mag popped out of the gun and a shell stovepiped:

    [​IMG]

    Closer look:

    [​IMG]

    About 2 or three rounds latter the mag PARTIALLY came out and another stove pipe:

    [​IMG]

    Closer look:

    [​IMG]

    Mags are stock factory Glock. Ammo is factory Remington 115gr hardball....

    I swapped the top end off the pistol and put the stock Glock frame back on....I ran 1 partial mag (what was left in the mag after the stove pipes in the LW frame) and 1 full mag through the stock Glock. No problems, and the empties ejected in a regular pattern over my
    right shoulder. (Not hitting me in the head. :) )


    JR, I LOVE the feel of the frame...and I think the mag dropping issue can be fixed.....

    Any chance that the guys that got the uneven rails guns could swap for frames with good rails? I'd be more than willing tocover shipping, handleing, and other costs.....

    Thanks,
    Kyle​

    I need both a mag release and grip replacements, I used a little superglue to keep my grip piece in place for the mean time. Can I just wait and have you send both the grips and the MR at the same time? Figured itd save yall on shipping too.

    Other than those two problems my frame is doing great at around 3000 rounds now

    My rails are uneven also. I had to polish them to get the slide to run smooth. The other problem I have with the uneven rails is the slide rubbing against the trigger bar where it turns 90 degrees in to the trigger housing. While the trigger is held back, and the slide is returning foreword, the trigger bar raises up and rubs the slide. I checked my other Glocks and they come close but, do not rub. After Goodspeed mentioned his cruciform starting to get a groove, I checked mine and see the same thing. He didn't say but, I bet his is on the right side also. Fortunately, this problem was fixed for future frames.
