    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.

    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
