New OEM Profile Glock Slides From Lone Wolf

Lone Wolf has brought another aftermarket slide to the market, this time with an OEM slide profile. This comes as a bit of a surprise given Glock’s history with filing suit against anyone producing something that might violate their trade dress protection. Never the less, Lone Wolf has produced a slide that when compared to the original that come with a new Glock Gen 1-3, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference at a glance.

The new slide will be made in the United States from 416 stainless steel and feature a Gen 3 nose profile as well as cocking serrations. Once the machine work is finished, the slide is bead blasted to give it a nice matte finish. The new AlphaWolf slide will be offered as a bare slide only, but Lone Wolf has the parts available to finish the slide off and even includes an option for them to build the slide for you.

Glock 22, 24, 31, 35, and 37 owners will really appreciate the ability to convert to 9mm with nothing more than a quick slide change. With an MSRP of only $199, this makes the slide on of the more reasonably priced aftermarket offerings. Lone Wolf is already shipping them, you can learn more about it on their website HERE.

    when compared to the original that come with a new Glock Gen 1-3, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference at a glance.

    Will these accept Gen4 parts and fit Gen4 frames?

      They will fit Gen 4 frames but there will be a gap in the front and Gen 3 recoil springs must be used.

    • Patrick R. – Senior Writer

      If Lone Wolf had said they will, I would have included it in the post. I might suggest you contact Lone Wolf to see if Gen4 parts will fit in their Gen 1-3 slide.

    I’ve never been a fan of the aesthetics of Lone Wold Slide or chrome, Robar, Nickle Boron etc.. on a polymer pistol so I really like these. They’d look great with a Grey Cerakote Frame

  • thedonn007

    Any idea how much it would cost to finish the slide?

    • BillC

      Probably the cost to just buy a new gun.

      • thedonn007

        Yea, that is what I am kind of thinking as well.

    • Bill Jordan

      I think on the price list of a local shop, it is $50 to cerakote for a slide with no sights.

      • thedonn007

        I should have said, “complete the slide” instead of “finish the slide”.

        • Bill Jordan

          Call it $100 not including barrel for all the pieces needed.

    • Ken

      It’s stainless steel. Maybe people buy it for the two tone look?

    • Ken

      It’s a bit under $200 going off of the armorer parts list for all OEM, stock parts including the plastic sights.

  • Jeffrey Smith

    What is the point of this? I tried running a few different aftermarket barrels in my glock a couple years ago and ended up tossing all of them. Not one would cycle reliably no matter what I did to try and fix the feed ramps. Lesson learned, other than sights and a trigger, I don’t mess with my Glocks anymore. They run perfectly from the factory.

    • Ken

      Some people like to have a 0% Glock Glock instead of a Glock brand Glock.

      • Jeffrey Smith

        Ah gotcha! That makes more sense!

  • Andy Hills

    Does it use glock mags?

    • Patrick R. – Senior Writer

      Nope, they wanted to watch the world burn and made sure that the slide only takes clips.

      Hi-Point Mags . . .. read the article

  • Spencerhut

    So $199, that is 40% of a standard Glock. Is making a n 80% Glock even worth it, I mean money wise?
    Some guy called the shop wanting me to troubleshoot his non functional 80% “Glock” on Saturday. Is copy as reliable as the real thing?

    • DanGoodShot

      No. But I do have an 80. Why? For me its a 2 prong answer. 1. Money. I have 4 kids 8 and under. I do want a sweet, custom, kinda one of a kind range toy. I can do it a little at a time as money permits.
      2. I enjoy building things with my hands that I can than enjoy as well as have others enjoy looking at… but not touch.. well.. if they ask nice, maybe. 😉 think of it as a custom bike or car that someone built from the ground up. They certainly don’t do it to save money.
      As far as people who build these with all stock glock parts. I think, again, 2 prong. 1, The enjoyment of building it yourself. 2, lack of paper.

  • Yea, not sure I get the point of an 80% Glock. But to each his own.
