Adding to cart… The item has been added

When we first launched the original Timberwolf frame, one of the first questions was “when will it be available in 9mm, .40 S&W, and .357SIG?” That time is now, because we’ve revamped and upgraded the design to bring you the Timberwolf Compact. The first thing you’ll notice is that the TWC fits in your hand like a much smaller pistol.

The TWC-3 and TWC-1 accept Gen3 and Gen4 G19, 23, 32, and 38 slides.

When using a Gen4 slide you simply remove the installed adapter in the dust cover area of the frame. Using Gen3 slides you leave the adapter in place to fill the gap between the slide and dust cover. 

The TWC includes the dust cover adapter, removable magazine well, and interchangeable backstraps. 

No matter what your shooting goal is, the TWC will fit your needs. Whether you want a gun for backwoods carry, a longslide for competition, a slim and easy to carry 9mm for personal protection, or just want to build the coolest gun at the range, the Timberwolf Compact can make your dreams come true. 


If purchasing a bare frame with parts kit the same parts are used but not installed, if you are using your own parts please note most parts are GEN3 parts except the magazine catch, locking block (PN 4361), and trigger housing which requires a GEN4 style part.

    Timberwolf frame

    Posted by Dennis haney on 17th Jan 2024

    I have been looking for an 19x type frame that would work with the new glock performance trigger. I needed help from the very helpful customer service to select the correct one and the fit is far superior to the other frames that I tried. I an beyond happy.

    Great frame for the money

    Posted by JoeT on 2nd Oct 2023

    I was interested in doing a build with a larger grip size than a G19. The LW frame was perfect. Easy build with no adjustments or dremel work needed. The only thing I was not aware of was the need for a Gen4 trigger housing, but this was an easy fix.

    Best Value Glock upgrade

    Posted by Sam Hughes on 21st May 2023

    I own a Gen4 Glock 19 MOS and did not like the OEM frame. This frame at this price is a ridiculously good deal. The full size grip and the grip angle fits perfectly in my hand. This is a no-brainer and would recommend this to anyone looking for a more function firearm that’s easier to control with a full-size frame. Be aware that you MUST order one of their locking blocks as the Glock locking blocks will not fit. Aside from that all other Glock OEM components fit and function well.

    Tech Suport/Customer Service will not call you back

    Absolutely love this frame. I have used it with a factory Gen4 slide as well as a built Gen3 slide. It makes a very nice gun. I have a problem with an LW striker spring that is creating a potentially hazardous situation and they don't return calls. I highly recommend this frame. I think you should maybe use Glock internal parts.

    TWC-1 Frame

    Posted by Sherman Weaver on 16th Dec 2022

    Extremely pleased with this frame, many features not found on others. I completed it with a LONE WOLF parts kit. It has a very good trigger. I used a slide/barrel assembly from Palmetto. Very pleased with it. They also included an armors tool with it.
