I hear what you are saying about the availability of Glock parts from LWD, however after going through the fiasco of the barrel mess and seeing the customer service as well as the attitude of the front desk and the ownership, I think I can find another supplier for my Glock needs. Life is too short to go through the crap if you can avoid it and for me that means another supplier. No need to repeat a negative experience again and as one wise business consultant said, "If things don't change, the outcome remains the same". Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
