I blame a fictional character named Napoleon Solo for my interest in firearms. A television show debuted where a heroic secret agent is shot at by a villain, only to discover he is standing behind bulletproof glass. The agent then runs around the glass and shoots the villain with a Luger 9mm. As the series “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” progressed, the Luger was replaced with a custom Walther P-38 with a short barrel and a flash hider attached. Additionally, the pistol could be converted to a rifle with a slide on tubular stock, longer barrel with “silencer” and optical sight. I actually saw Solo shoot down helicopters with it.

Due to the compensator and barrel porting, the Werewolf .40 easily stayed on target to allow for rapid, well-placed follow-up shots. The Burris FastFire II Red Dot Reflex Sight simplifies the act of aiming by eliminating the need to focus on the front sight, rear sight and target.

I was 9 years old and quite impressionable, but the gun was very appealing to the eye, which I am sure this is what the producers were after. Why am I telling you this? Because this is the gun I thought of when the Lone Wolf Werewolf arrived—I opened the box, looked at the pistol and thought, “wow, that looks like the ‘Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ gun.”

The Werewolf’s frame features a modified rail system and a custom compensator that minimizes perceived recoil by up to 75%.

Gun Details
But seriously, the new Lone Wolf Werewolf is a hybrid made from proprietary Lone Wolf components and factory Glock parts. A product of the Lone Wolf Custom Shop, the .40 S&W chambered pistol is intended for competition but could potentially be right at home in urban combat. The Werewolf is comprised of the new Timberwolf replacement frame, a stainless steel barrel, a stainless slide with custom laser engraving, slide/barrel porting and a custom compensator—all from Lone Wolf. The slide is custom-cut to accept a Burris Fast Fire II mini-red dot sight. Due mostly to the work of Crucible founder Kelly McCann, this sight arrangement is currently moving away from the competition arena over to combat pistols. McCann has spearheaded a movement within the special operations and law enforcement communities to use mini-red dot sights on pistols, as they offer continuity with the red dot sight normally found on M4 carbines. The remainder of the pistol is comprised of Glock factory parts.

    be intersted in knowing the price of this Glock werewolf pistol. I called an aftermarket barrel dealer and he advised me not to buy lonewolf as it is made in China and that I shoud buy the Bar Sto instead as it was beter quality and more accurate; would be intersted in knowing if there is any truth to this.
