    I like that. I don't have a lot of confidence I the current charging handle and magnet set up.

    Yes I like that set up alot better than the stock one. Maybe kodiak could sell an upgraded one with a stronger magnet.

    Maybe Kodiak can find out where Lee Valley Tools gets their rare earth magnets.
    These magnets are crazy strong.
    Ounces leads to pounds, pounds lead to pain.
    Light, strong and cheap - pick two.

    Some of us are requesting the other 180 manufacturer on here to make an upgraded charging handle. They are the only ones making upgrades for the WK180. If they get enough requests I'm sure they would make something for us.

    Decoded to take off the handguard to clean out everything yesterday . Holy **** were those screws on there tight. With the proper Allen keys all but 3 came out. They were extremely torqued. No locktite as others said they had but ended up using a dremel to make then into flat head screws as they would not come out. Will need more screws but also tempted in a new handguard with more clearance inside.

    Anyone have a suggestion for the best free floating handguard with the least amount of work

    If I remembered correctly, the TNA handguard can be fitted without even swapping the barrel nut. It clamps around the existing barrel nut and clears the gas block. A few people here have been using that setup.

    I'm having a lot of failure to eject issues ever since I got my WK180C a couple weeks ago... All components cleaned and lubed as per manual, extractor spring has been stretched a little to try and help, results are that casings no longer remain seated in barrel (which is what was occurring originally, manually cycling bolt would clear and eject casing), but now get stuck in chamber and magazine removal to clear is required. After cleaning and reassembling rifle is good for around 4 shots feeding and ejecting correctly then it is a constant failure to eject, manually clearing every time, mags and ammo make no difference.

    Ammo tried: American Eagle XM855 Greentip 5.56, American eagle .223
    Mags tried: Hera 5 round mags (came with rifle), C-defense LAR-15 10 round pistol mags

    some have had issues with the extractors and springs. Contact Kodiak they will quickly get you sorted out.
    No such thing as too much ammunition or toilet paper...

    I replaced my extractor and spring and it works fine now.
