For the past several weeks I've been seeing a lot of threads regarding LWD barrel issues, not only on this forum but others as well. Figured I share my opinion and experience. LWD barrels are notorious for short throats in their chamber. Either they are crappy machinists or they have no idea why Glock weapon owners purchase aftermarket barrels. I was an LWD dealer for a couple years. Customers had problems, I tried to get LWD to address them, but they didn't budge. They seem to want to make a decent, cheap barrel for jacketed bullets and if you want to shoot lead, make a dummy, pay $30, and they'll throat the chamber to fit your ammo. That's a crap way of doing business. What they should do is learn how to properly cut a chamber to accomodate jacketed and lead bullets. What should a guy do? Buy something else. Storm Lake and KKM Precision have their finger on the pulse. I have more experience with KKM than Storm Lake and that's my default recommendation. Currently, I'm not a dealer for any barrel manufacturer. I'm not mentioning or promoting so I can make a profit by any potential sales. I'm informing so shooters can buy right from the start. I really wish LWD would get real and wise up, but it seems like they are set in their ways, which is a shame.
