I do like my LW barrel and it performs flawlessly now and it's as accurate as most of my other 9mm's. My HK and my CZ's are a bit more accurate but for self defense purposes not enough to matter. I like to carry 147 grainers for personal protection and at first the LW barrel would give problems feeding them because they are such a long bullet. They were actually grabbing the lands of the barrel and jamming. I noticed also that LW has more of a "step" throat and not a "tapered" throat which seemed to contribute to the problem. Simple solution, tapered the throat slightly and problem solved with .015" deeper throat at approximately 60 degrees of angle. Have not had a single problem since.
