I bought a compensator/ muzzle brake from Lone Wolf a few months ago for my Glock 19 Gen 3. I waited until hearing back from Lone Wolf last week before posting on here.
DO NOT BUY ONE…unless you like having to clear the jam and rack the slide every single time you fire. May as well buy a damn muzzleloader - it would fire quicker.
I’ve had it to the range three times since I bought the comp. First time my G19 was a little dirty but not by much - only maybe 100 rounds thru it the month before. But the next two times, I’d cleaned my G19 prior to range day.
I usualy bring a mixed bag of 9mm ammo with me - reloaded range-grade ammo from FedArms, Winchester WhiteBox, Blazer and then the good stuff - Hornady Critical Defense.
But each time I shot with the Lone Wolf comp on, I immediately got jams - FTE, stovepipes, FTF. WTF, right? So each time, I’d get out my Allen wrench and remove the comp to see if it was my after-market threaded barrel that was causing the problem…and NOPE.
I finally got around to emailing Lone Wolf my issue. I got a boilerplate Korporate Amerika copy & paste non-response response that, reading between the lines, was saying I needed to shoot better ammo to get my G19 to function properly. And they snarkily put a FILE CLOSED status on it too.
HELLO!!! Didn’t you read my email where I stated that these Comp problems occurred even with Hornady Critical Defense ammo?? I pointed this out in a reply to their FILE CLOSED email. Other than sending me another FILE CLOSED response, they didn’t even bother to reply. So I sent a 3rd email telling them they sucked, their products sucked and their customer service sucked. Got yet another FILE CLOSED reply.
I have not done anything aftermarket to the gun other than installing a threaded bbl and adding TruGlo tritium sights.
My only conclusion is that the problem is with the Lone Wolf Comp. I have since taken it off and dumped it in my large Bin Where Gun Parts Go To Die. I head up my 300-member church’s 10-man Security Team and there is no freaking way I’m going to depend on an undependable POS gun-part that may allow a bad guy(s) to wreak havoc on our flock. N.F.W.
