    Looks like Lone Wolf has come up with a new line of replacement and conversion barrels for Glocks. Strange, but their website doesn't really say anything about them. Differences I can see are what may be a black melonite coating, fluted barrel and the replacement of that awful Lone Wolf logo. But other than that, I don't see anything that stands out. Prices seem to be about the same.

    Anyone heard anything more on these barrels?

    I've used their, I guess "gen 1" conversion barrels in several guns for caliber conversions - other than their ugly logo being burned in to the thing, I've got no complaints. They've fit well and functioned 100%.

    I'm not sure of the purpose of the fluting in the barrels. Weight? Looks? Tacticool? I guess if they don't cost any more, I'd probably be inclined to go this route.

    I'm going to get a threaded barrel for my 17. They are they same price as the older version and they worked great ,so why not give it a try?

    Looks like the Lone wolfs are being made by Dasan Machineries Co. LTD of South Korea.
    I always thought they were made here but it might have changed recently as I have not
    looked into getting one again for years. I really like the one I have for my 21.
    The alpha's seem to made here in the US.

    Nice. Using a Idaho address and buying crap from over seas.
    I haven't bought the barrel yet but will look into where they are made and where the other brands are made
