Lone Wolf Conversion, G23 9mm

Tried out Lone Wolf Alpha 9mm conversion barrel today. Also changed to Glock brand G19 extractor, ejector, and mags. I guess it works perfectly because it now throws brass onto my head. Had one stovepipe on first mag but ran fine after that except for crappy ejection pattern, which seems like G19 perfection according to interweb. Ran probably 300 rd of Winchester white box through it, and since this ammo is known to be weak I'm hopeful that using stout 9mm will be as reliable with better ejection. If not I'll do the things people do to try to keep the brass off their head. So far no regrets. But tomorrow is another day. Never too late for regrets.

I have a 9mm conversion barrel for my G23 but who made it escapes me right now. I think maybe it is a Stormlake. I know it runs 100% with only the barrel and G19 mags.

Worth a try to run combinations of G23 a d G19 to see if some combination puts brass out to the right. And will do the few things people try for correcting G19 patterns. Reliability was fine, except brass in eyes causes blindness.

Some interweb research suggests replacing the "336" Gen 3 9mm ejector with the Gen 4 "30274" 9mm ejector solves this issue. Worth $8 to find out.

I have run my conversion barrel a lot in various local matches and can honestly say I don't where/how it ejects the brass. Guess that means it is not hitting me in the face?

If you aren't shaking brass out of your shirt at the end of the day you don't have my problem. When finished with 300-rd was standing inside a circle of empty brass.

I also now recall that I didn't change that little extractor spring bearing thing to the 9mm version so I'll do that next. For science.
