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. 

Assembled frames come with the following parts installed.

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.

    Great aftermarket frame

    Posted by Lane M on 4th Feb 2024

    Ignore the previous review about being an ugly frame. Guy has no clue. This is my third TW frame. I built a G45-ish pistol. Right out of the box, this thing just worked. The grip angle is like a 1911, but you get the reliability of a Glock. I don't care for the hump on a Glock grip. I could have had the grip modded, but I would still have the weird grip angle. For $130, I have the grip and angle I like. Win/win. Not my first. Will not be my last.

    Ugliest of the Glock Clones

    Picked this up because it has a gen 4 mag release, instead of the skinny gen 3 mag release. The look and angle of the grip looks so bizarre and ugly. It almost seems angled weird. Not a functional complaint, but I doubt I will ever run this thing because it looks to terrible.

    Compact/Full Frame

    Posted by Shane on 19th Jan 2023

    This is a really nice frame, I bought it built with all Lone Wolf’s parts installed & it’s really nice but it does come with a trigger shoe similar to the crappy Glock OEM trigger shoe. Meaning the trigger safety digs into your finger while shooting just like Glock OEM trigger shoes. I took one star off for that & because Lone Wolf won’t ship anything else with your frame to save you money & make it more convenient like every other firearm company I’ve dealt with does. I just wanted one extra Gen 4 trigger housing which would’ve easily fit inside the included pistol case along with the frame but instead they wanted me to pay to ship it directly to my house separate from the frame which makes no sense because your already having the frame shipped to your FFL so why not make it easier & less expensive on your customers by allowing us to pickup our entire orders from our FFL’s if the entire order can fit in the included pistol case… Besides that this frame comes with a 3.5 connector & 6 pound trigger spring which is really nice & I liked everything else about this frame from the Gen 4 mag release to the polymer magwell. It comes with two back straps & universal trigger housing with a set screw to adjust over travel which is a very nice feature. This frame is aesthetically pleasing & will go good with whatever slide you choose to put on it & I’m happy with this purchase. I would highly recommend this frame to anyone looking to build their own 19X/G45 or just upgrade from their OEM frame to this Lone Wolf frame.
