    Lone Wolf Distributors is now selling custom/replacement frames for Gen3 slides ($199). This will certainly expand the Glock universe as we know it. Can't wait to hear the comments on this development from all sides.

    Now I'm guessing the 1911 manufacturers will strike back with a new "Glock angle frame" for 1911s :eek:

    No, probably not :)

    That frame feels great in the hand, IMHO.

    YMMV.


    I'm thinking about building a clone around the frame.

    The concept is very interesting. I think the extended beavertail is superfluous though.

    I'll be more interested when they make one for the large frame Glocks.

    Because! ;)

    Seriously, i had a chance to fondle a pistol made entirely of lone wolf parts, all flames and triggers and connectors and XS big dots-with that frame-and I found myself thinking more "Glock koolaid fanboy's bargain answer to a les baer" than "who the hell would spend that sort of dough on a Glock..."

    But I like the platform, and i like it even better with that frame and aftermarket trigger assembly. Again, YMMV.

    In part it is the same reason guys like Chris Costa have been using glocks with frame reductions for years. One question might be why not just do a frame reduction and stipple job for less money (much less if you do it yourself)? Some people seem afraid to do even minor work on their guns let alone something like a frame reduction. Others may want to preserve the stock frame for one reason or another.

    The frame purchase requires FFL - $199.

    If it trips your trigger, what the hey.

    So, it is possible to improve perfection?

    Glock has a huge consumer market world-wide with ever-increasing new customers. If the market popularity for the product is there, you can bet LWD will increase their product line.

    A pity they didn't make it out of metal. That would have made it safer, too. But no, I guess it's not a Glock without a plastic frame that splinters in your hand if a case ruptures.

    As opposed to a metal framed pistol that blows its wood/synthetic grips into your hand(s)? This was a big problem in the .38 Super days.

    Is this frame more rigid than Glock's?

    I find it difficult to believe so many Glock owners could be wrong.

    Easy to avoid the splinters. I still have a pair of steel panels that fit under the grips and fill the frame cut-outs in a 1911. They came with a set of thin grips to maintain the same profile.

    Never had it happen to me, but I've witnessed a couple of mags driven into the ground. Steel-toed shoes might be a good idea. ;)
