Lone Wolf 1911-Style Glock w/ Extended Beavertail: Glock Meets 1911 Pistol for Best of all Worlds?
Defense Review ^ | 4-28-10 | David Crane

Posted on 04/29/2010 7:10:21 PM PDT by smokingfrog

It’s no secret that we, here, at DefenseReview are VERY BIG Glock pistol proponents. For us, when it comes to pistols, it’s pretty much either Glock (9mm Parabellum a.k.a. 9×19mm NATO) or 1911 (9mm, 40 S&W, and .45 ACP) pistols when it comes to carry and competition applications. In fact, for tactical use, our first choice is a Glock 19 (G19), Glock 17 (G17), or Glock 34 (G34), depending on the mission-specific requirements/parameters, and our second choice is a custom single-stack or double-stack/hi-cap 1911 pistol built by pistolsmith Bob Marvel of Bob Marvel Guns (BMG) / Marvel Custom Pistols (MCP) (We should note that we also like the HK P7M13 and P7M8 squeeze-cocker pistols with quality jacketed factory ammo (115gr or higher), but the P7M13 is relatively heavy compared to the G19, and it gets hot pretty quickly under rapid fire at fairly low round count.).

So, being the Glock fans we are, we really enjoyed getting to view and handle Lone Wolf’s new aftermarket 1911-style polymer grip frame for the Glock 17/22 (G17/22) pistols–which can also be applied to the Glock 24 (G24) and Glock 34/35 (G34/35) pistols–at the tail end of SHOT Show 2010. It features a 1911-style and angled grip, extended beavertail tang, removable/replaceable/modular backstrap for different hand shapes and sizes, and Mil-Std-1913 dust cover rail system for mounting tactical white light and laser modules. The beavertail assists with recoil management/muzzle rise reduction and eliminates slide bite for people who utilize a high grip–like myself, for instance. I get bitten by the (Glock) slide all the time.

Anyway, the product looked and felt great in the hand. It’s a particularly great idea for 1911 owners/shooters who want grip angle consistency between their 1911s and Glocks,

Lone Wolf 1911-Style Glock 17/22 (G17/22) Pistol Frame (Polymer Grip Frame) with Extended Beavertail Tang: Glock Meets 1911 Pistol for the Best of all Worlds? (Pics!)

Editor’s Note: DefenseReview will be publishing some more articles on Glock pistols outfitted with aftermarket Glock pistol accessories we like–some of which we used on our technical/tactical shooting training trip in Bellingham, WA these past few weeks–in the very near future, so stay tuned. If you’re a Glock owner/user like us, you’ll definitely want to read them!

NICE!!!!

I’ll continue to stick with my Beretta 92F & HK USP .45 Tactical. I’m not fond of either the Glock or the 1911, though I do acknowledge that they are VERY nice handguns. They just aren’t my first preference. I’m also a big fan of Springfield XDs.

Both great guns and well worth the cost. But if you don't have all that money and still need a good, low-cost, guaranteed, American-made firearm, check out Hi-Point.

I think it has more to do with the grip size and angle than the actual looks of the thing.

I bought my GLOCK 19 (9 mm)a month or so ago.....I liked it soooo much that I am buying a GLOCK 20 (10 mm) next month.

I was, as you can guess, really impressed with my GLOCK on the range.

What an abortion. I build custom 1911’s. That obscenity in the picture is the worst of all worlds.

It’s either a Glock, or it isn’t. It’s either a 1911, or it isn’t.

Never the twain shall meet.

I was eager to see a picture of this pistol, until I saw a picture of it. The beaver tail makes it look like someone put a non-matching frame on the gun. It’s ugly. Between this and some of the ugly squared off cars I see people driving around, it makes me wonder just what the heck they’re teaching in design and engineering schools these days.

What? I'm not against 9mm in general, but who in their right mind would make or buy a 1911 in 9mm? That's a EURO caliber!

Ugliest handgun ever devised. The only way i know it could be uglier is if they nickel plated it and add red white and blue grips.

Steyr M40A1. Steyr actually made nice ergonomic improvements.

If I was to carry one of these plastic things I think it would be the M40A1

Cute, they took the worst features of the 1911...added them to the glock, and left out the good parts.

It’s a particularly great idea for 1911 owners/shooters who want grip angle consistency between their 1911s and Glocks,

That issue was already solved by Springfied Armory with their XD line. They're far better designed than the Block. And it's come in .45 ACP for years.

Close call. The gun it reminds me of would give it serious competition for that title. The dumb-ass Colt All American:

I dunno...

the colt looks russian, which gives it a different kind of “cool”.

The hipoint gots nuthin. It looks like a rejected prototype of a crossman air pistol. Feels like one in your hand too.

Late to the party. This gun already exists:

Smith & Wesson M&P Pro 9mm. 17-round capacity, three backstrap sizes for a custom fit, and a sweet 5.5 lbs. trigger from the S&W Performance Center, all for about $625.00.

I didn’t like the older ones, but I got my hands on a Gen 4 at my favorite gun shop. Sweet! Even the trigger pull [which I HATED] is nice.

Now the probvlem is choosing between the 9mm. and the S&W 40. Since I’m trying to limit my ammo types to .357 and .38 special for the revolvers, and .45 ACP and 9mm. for the pistols [availability of ammo], I’m leaning toward the 9mm.

Tony - you beat me to it with your S&W M&P 9mm, only mine is a compact with a rail-mounted laser. Not a Glock fan, but acknowledge that they are proven great weapons. With +P JHP’s, she’ll hit like a 1911.

Of course, I love my 1911 just as much...with +P JHP’s as well.
