I have used them in 9mm and 38sp. Both functioned. Some primers require multiple strikes.
Has anyone use Wolf small pistol primers for 40SW or 9mm...the good, bad, or ugly on them?
Were they silver or brass colored?I ahve had good luck with Wolf small pistol primers-100% reliability,
I shoot an M&P as well. I was complaining about their SP primers at a match and someone said that their M&P doesn't like them either, but their glock has no problem. I disassembled and cleaned my striker assembly for the first time ever and it still had problems.but have had more than a few problems with the small pistol magnum primers. Many failures to ignite in my 9mm S&W M&P.

The ones I've got are silver colored. From the Enos forum people seem to like the brass colored ones but have issues with the silver ones.The primers I used were brass colored; I have never seen any other type of Wolf primer. The M&P ignition system seems to be a little weak. I tried using lower powered recoil springs with disastrous results, light hits/FTFs. My experience has been that any deviation from the stock recoil and striker springs will cause ignition problems. This includes the use of extra power striker springs.
I too have a "reliable source". My source is the printing out the outside of the case of 5,000 that contains 5 US retail packages of 1000 Wolf Small Rifle (copper colored) primers. It reads "Murom Apparatus Manufacturing Plant" and gives the web address of http://flame.murom.ru. The primers are packaged for US retail sale. The inner boxes of 1,000 indicate Made in Russia, but do not mention Murom.PS I have it from a reliable source that Wolf doesn't make all of their primers.
Brass or copper colored? Winchester primers are brass colored, but the current Wolf Small Rifle primers are a distinctly different color - more of a "reddish copper" than "golden brass".The primers I used were brass colored; I have never seen any other type of Wolf primer.
I hate necroposting, but I figured in this case it's appropriate..... anyone buying wolf small pistol recently, and how are they working? I got a box of 1000 at Riley's on a lark. I probably am going to just load up some practice ammo with it, but I am wondering if people are still getting light strikes or not.
The primers you found at Riley's, are they PMC in a green/white box, marked made in Russia? I understand these are sometimes called 'wolf primers'. I have used these exact primers from Rileys ($26 per 1k I think) with no problems in 357 fired in a ruger GP100 and Marlin 1894c
