    Tagging this. I have the 22 conversion barrel for my 27 but haven't had the chance to test it yet...

    I used to have a Wolf 9mm conversion barrel for G24. It worked great - I don't remember having ANY problems with it.

    Last Friday, I had the chance to take the maiden voyage on my new G23.
    I hit the lube points with a touch of CLP, then I shot 150 trouble free rounds of .40 through it :supergrin:
    I then switched to the Lone Wolf 40-9mm conversion barrel. I wanted to reduce the chance of being in the 1% failure category, so, I followed Lone Wolf's direction and shot 20 rnds of "premium grade" 124 gr +P. No issues. I switched to 115 gr Winchester White Box and spent 150 rnds without issue :tongueout:
    I guess LW recommendation worked OR my barrel was not in the 1%-tile in the first place :cool:

    With the LW conversion barrel in my G23 the extractor is just barely making contact with the rim of case. If I hand cycle the slide, the extractor will not extract round - extractor lets go. But if I fire the round it will extract and eject. I really think case is extracting from the pressure generated by fired round and the extractor is really doing nothing. But again it functions.

    I wish someone would try using the 40-9 conversion barrel without the extractor, in the gun. I think it just may work. There may be enough residual pressure, when the breach unlocks, to throw the case out. Isn't there someone here with the conversion barrel, who would like to try?

    I have discussed this non gripping extractor with others over the internet. They claim their extractor does engage and I believe them. I have not had a chance to examine another example in person, but would guess those that engage have marginal engagement. I mention this not to knock the LW conversion as a practice device, but I think people may want to be careful carrying a conversion barrel for protection purposes.

    As far as firing glock without extractor I have to wonder if safe as hole would be open. Also spring engaging extractor also puts pressure on slide back plate. And I think firing pin safety may not work without extractor.

    I guess it will work, without an extractor. I didn't see this.

    Your firing pin safety isn't containing any high pressure.

    The slide backing plate is held on by that plastic sleeve on the firing pin.

    The firing pin safety may not function, who cares. This is just a test and we don't need to have the safety working.

    I'm not proposing that everybody throw their extractors away.

    Call me master of the obvious- but that setup sounds like an accidental discharge waiting to happen...not only does clearing the gun not clear the gun; i am guessing the extractor would not stick out to show the normal chambered round position either -

    I was just following LW instructions. Plus, it gave me an excuse to buy more / different ammo. :supergrin:
