    Check the screw that holds the piston rod in. Mine backed out causing extraction issues.

    What he said. I was going to wait to shoot mine until I got a replacement for the magnetic charging handle, but it does not seem like Wolverine will be offering an option any time soon, so I'm going to take my chances.

    Is there a slightly bigger safety selector I can install, or is the one in it the standard size?

    Has anyone changed the barrel to 300 blk on one of these yet?

    I screwed mine in and out few times when I first got it and then tightened with a allen key that fit through holes in threaded handle no issue with it coming loose firing.

    Did they come up with a fix for the magnetic handles yet? A few weeks ago they were on gen 3.

    I tried handling a WK180B at the Calgary Shooting Centre, the recoil spring felt pretty weak and there was no bolt release catch. When the bolt was locked to the rear it did not stay there and even a small movement of the firearm was enough to cause the bolt to release and go forward. I didn't like this at all, to me if I lock the bolt rearward it had better take a hard knock to get it to release unintentionally.

    Has this changed with the 180C? Is there a bolt release now?

    I haven't had any unwanted bolt releases on my WK. Maybe that one had a defect?

    Anyway, I added a bolt catch release from Range Warrior Accessories. It's a good upgrade. The recommended installation puts the lever horizontal to the ground. I didn't like that so I "clocked" mine so it's a one-hand operation.
