    I ordered mine back in March from Tenda. Can you advise if you're supplying by the date of order irregardless of whom order is placed with or supplying Wolverine customer's first.
    Thanks in advance. Mike
    All orders are shipped in chronological order based on the date the order was received, regardless of who placed the order, dealer or retail. Assuming PAL's are valid and accounts are not in arrears everything is shipped in this order.

    Initially all but one dealer order was small, when the popularity of the WK180-C was realised some dealers tried to increase the quantities on their initial order. We refused to do this and processed the increased quantity as a new order at the date we received this request, so there has been no queue jumping.

    If I put a deposit of 200 off your site today, what is the rough ETA I can expet until it's in my hands?
    Our best SWAG right now would be end of first quarter to start of second quarter.

    Can you PM me please as I have a hard time keeping up with these threads
    Not yet, the WK Utility rifle will be a new design semi auto .308, I should be test firing the pre production model shortly.

    After all the criticism over previous "Pre-Orders" I doubt we will repeat that. Just build them and sell them, we will have to see how that works!

    I don't use CGN PM, please e-mail me at John@wolverinesupplies.com for any further questions.

    $1 per shot gets old unless you are hunting.
    Hopefully I will be test firing a WK180-C prototype in 7.62x39 using AK mags very shortly as well. Ongoing R&D has to tick along so we can keep new products coming but due to the demand for the "standard" WK180-C in .223 (5.56) our R&D is not progressing as fast as I would have liked, but we made the decision to prioritise production to fill back orders.

    24th Sept. Last weeks order of 72 rifles should be arriving here in the morning.

    These rifles and all future WK180-C rifles will be chambered in 5.56 NATO.

    We are not happy with our .308 design so back to the drawing board. Prototype 7.62 x 39 rifles are in the process of been manufactured so I think it safe to say these will come first.

    Rifles with 5.56 NATO chambers can safely use .223 Rem ammunition.

    Just curious. I understand if you do not wish to share this information.

    She was simply not a winning design for many reasons, she would be a disappointment after the huge success of the WK180-C. The steps we go through are very simple, there is only one! She has to gain Mr Wolverine's approval and pass his QC.

    When production starts for the WK180-C in 7.62 x 39 she will be available in two versions, I can not confirm price or ETA at this time and we are not ready to accept orders.

    Version 1 WK180-C in caliber 7.62 x 39. This uses the standard (current) lower and will use STANG type magazines.
    Version 2 WK181-C in caliber 7.62 x 39. This uses a new (Modified) lower receiver that will only accept AK type magazines. Although developed for export she will be available in Canada.

    I anticipate that uppers would be identical on both versions unless we have a large export order that requests something different.
