    Shot my son in laws, although not a Glock fan, it shot very well and accurate. The action was smooth, but the trigger hurt my finger. The ergonomics are not in my favor. I would still own one.

    I took it to the range yesterday and was well satisfied with the POA/POI. Good groups too. Fired 100 rds of .40 without a mishap but was disappointed with the Lone Wolf 9mm conversion barrel with about 20% FTEs/FTFs with 115gr Blazer Brass. Next time I'll try 124gr or 147 gr ammo.

    I have run 100 rounds of 115 gr. 9mm through a Lone wolf conversion barrel in my G23 Gen4 without a hitch. But have noticed a big difference in the ejection pattern, i.e. over my head vs off to the right. So far....

    This can be easily fixed.

    The Glock 22 is a fine full sized defensive sidearm. Accurate, reliable, and handles the powerful .40S&W cartridge very well.

    I've had my G22 since they first hit the shelves...around 1990.
    Great gun. I've added an extended slide stop, extended slide release and stainless steel spring & guide rod. Also put a Pachmayr sleeve on it.

    I went back to the range today with some different 9mm ammo to try in my Lone Wolf conversion barrel. Previously I had about 20% FTEs/FTFs with 115gr ammo, but today no problems at all with 124gr and 147gr 9mm's. And, as usual, no problem with .40 S&W ammo. So, overall after 200 rounds 9mm and 200 .40 S&W, I'm very happy with my G22 in both calibers.

    My G22 Gen 2 is an old police trade-in gun.
    Functions 100% but, unfortunately, I don't shoot .40 S&W very well.

    I picked up a 9mm Lone Wolf barrel for it and have put a box, or so, through that using Magpul G17 mags.
    A couple slight mag issues, but I am encouraged.

    A local shop has an old, but quite nice, G23 Gen 2 for $ 349.
    I almost bought it as a 9mm conversion barrel and a couple G19 magazines could be had for around $ 150 more.
    Not TOO bad for then having both calibers and the earlier grip frame that I much prefer.

    I've run about 250 rounds of 115 gr. 9mm through my G23 Gen4 with a lonewolf conversion barrel. I've had 2 FTE and I blame them both on my failure to buy some G17 or G19 magazines. I think I gotta do that.
