Hello, just finished assembling a Gen 3 17. OEM frame, Lone Wolf Alpha Wolf slide and barrel. The parts kits for both the slide and frame came from Lone Wolf as well.

My problem is...when I rack the slide forcefully the barrel will not drop/tilt out of the way to allow the slide to move all the way to the rear. If I go slowly with the gun completely level, it racks just fine.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

??

So many things to check.

Recoil Spring Assembly is new and fits correctly?

Is the barrel hood getting stuck on the slide during unlocking?

Take some pictures of how the barrel hood meets the slide.

Do the new Alphawolf barrels have a slight bevel at the top where it meets the slide? I've had no issues with the old Lone Wolf barrels but haven't seen a new alphawolf yet.

well, I just looked up pictures of the Alphawolf barrels and they have the bevel, so I have no clue.
sorry.

Generally that is the barrel lug to locking block. Try the LW barrel in the original slide, and the OEM barrel on the LW slide
