    After spending several hours this last weekend reading much of this thread and others about the Timberwolf frame, I decided to order one. Last night they were still in stock on the Lone Wolf website. So after work today I came home and brought my phone to the computer to call in the order, I pulled up the Lone Wolf website and guess what? They are now on backorder!!!! I hope JR can give us a rough idea when they will have more available. :crying:
     
  2. Hey JR,
    Any idea on when you will start on the full size frame (20/21)?

    Full size 17/22 are good to go. The 19/23 molds are undergoing major changes to the core. The 20/21 is proceeding as expected

    Do the full size (17/34/22/35) frames require a special ejector? I received my frame today and the standard 9mm ejector is a no-go.

    When you say ejector, are you talking about the complete trigger housing? The Timberwolf frames use a SF trigger housing GLO-5406. The GLO-5406 comes with a .45 ejector, you pull a 9mm ejector from your 9mm trigger housing and install it into the 5406 housing. Actually, I think all the new frames include a LWD trigger housing. Is it hidden in the packaging somewhere?

    The only things that came with the frame were the back straps (x2) and the mag release button. I will drop LW a note Mon. to see if the ejector housing was supposed to be shipped with the frame.

    What do you expect to come from the changes?

    Muncie: The TW frames utilize the SF trigger housing. You can see them here http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Search.aspx?TERM=uts

    rkrk: The core mold changes will directly affect the magazine seating issues some compact owners are experiencing

    JR, can you give us any estimate on when you will have more of the full size (G17, 22 etc.) frames available? Thank you.

    I can not wait for the g20 frame. I plan to build a whole g20 pistol from your company.

    Thank you for your time.

    The 20/21 project has been temporally delayed while we reconfigure the 19/23 mag well.

    I know this sounds bad but it isn't! We just approved a rapid prototype today so we are moving along nicely

    What type of production method is used to make the frame rails? I know that the OEM Glocks rails are now MIM with copper plating and electroless nickel, not a big fan of that combination as it doesn't seem to wear very well.

    Also, do you have any updates on when to expect the full size 9/40/357 frames in stock?
