Timberwolf, Enhanced Glock?

Lone Wolf Distributor has been around for quite some time in the shooting community. They are famous for their extremely precise aftermarket parts and accessories for Glock pistols, which includes internal and external parts. The company is located in Oldtown Idaho. Lone Wolf was first famous for their aftermarket barrels for Glocks, and later for their internal parts. Recently, they released a new part to enhance the good old Glock, the Timberwolf frame (Lone Wolf does not make a complete gun; Timberwolf refers to the frame).

If you have shot a real Glock before, you would know how awkward the back strap of the pistol can be. Every time I pointed the pistol, I found myself readjusting my aim, unlike my 1911, which has natural ergonomics.  Additionally, it is really easy to get a “slide bite” from a Glock due to the way it was designed. I own a Glock 17 (real and airsoft) and I, personally, do not like how the Glocks feel. However, Glocks, in my opinion, are one of the finest combat pistols in the world. They are super reliable, super durable, and every time you pull the trigger, they will go bang. Plus, after years of shooting my Glock 17, I am very efficient and I am very accurate with it.

There are not many options I can do to enhance the ergonomics of my Glock 17. A grip reduction on my real Glock is fairly expensive, and there is no point doing a grip reduction on my airsoft Glock. I have no choice but to just “deal with it”.

Thanks to my boss, I had a once in a life time opportunity to enter Shot Show 2011 (A world wide gun show happens once a year, for trades only, no general public admission). As I was walking around the show, something caught my eye. It was the Lone Wolf Timberwolf Frame. I held it and aimed it; my aim feels natural just like my 1911. I immediately fell in love with it. However, fate intervened. After talking to the representative from Lone Wolf, the Timberwolf frame is prohibited by California State law! Now I understand the meaning of “it is too good to be true”.
