    Keep her wet, at least during break-in and you won't have a problem.

    Now I just need a 50 beo bolt!
    I agree this gun is tight

    Postman just dropped off the package

    Do all these rifles have a bit of play (rattle) between the upper and lower?

    It sure seems a solid piece otherwise.

    Range tomorrow

    Yes, mine does. Not of much consequence. You can use a accu-wedge or shim of some type to lock it up.

    It is very slight, thanks for the feedback!

    If you want to install a Magpul (or perhaps any other) bipod mount in the front M-Lok position you will need to grind down one of the mounting screws - the one for the aft hole. It is too long out of the box and hits the gas block.

    You can see the threads of the screw I am speaking about on the right

    Got mine lastnight. Fit and finish is really good considering the price. Excellent machining, I've yet to find a blemish or bad spot
    Supplied hera mags did not drop free (almost, not quite) and my Lancer L5 mags dropped no problem.

    Getting the rig out on Monday and I'll try a few different brands of ammo and report back in.

    Thumbs up





    Had the rifle at the range for the first time this morning. Only got through 75 rounds, I had limited time.
    Finished the barrel break-in process & then another 40 rounds after that.

    The rifle performed beautifully with no hic ups. The supplied Hera mags & the Lancer L5 mags both finished with the bolt held open. For those that are concerned, I didnít notice any marks or dents around the ejection port after 75 rounds.
    There is a slight amount of receiver play, not enough to bother most including me but some of the more obsessive fellows it might. Although easily remedied if that sort of thing drives you nuts.
    I thought I would hate the shorter handguard and had already started compiling a list of ones to replace it, but after handling and firing it today Iím pretty sure Iíll keep the stock one. It felt balanced and solid.

    The trigger is what youíd except from a stock mil-spec ar15 trigger. Itís not the worst thing out there but I think a trigger upgrade is in my future. It felt a little heavy for my tastes.

    Iím taking it back up to the range in the morning as I didnít have access to the 100yard today, had to settle for 20 yard Multi-Purpose bays which was fine for barrel break in. Iíll run some different commercial loads and see how it does for grouping.

    All in all, Iím super impressed with what I got especially for the money spent

    Well done Wolverine & Kodiak

    John and all at Wolverine, I know you have commented that you may not be following other threads here but the info ref the handguard<>gasblock has been passed along by griffin68 and I can confirm it with my rifle (cut and paste from my thread https://www.canadiangunnutz.com/foru...at-the-range):

    Further from JaredP's comments on his rifle, half of my handguard screws had loctite and the other half did not. John @ Wolverine has said they should not have loctite but a few got out that way. Use a 3mm allen and they come out with just a bit of pressure required, heads stayed OK.

    griffin68 reported his safety selector screws were backing out and needed loctite but mine have loctite both sides. Also his comments regarding the handguard touching the gas block are correct. It is more pronounced on one side - the other side seems fine. Not sure if there is enough play in the guard holder when tightening the screws to keep a gap on all sides but I think Kodiak needs to address this and open up the area around the gas block slightly to guarantee a free floating guard. Probably the easiest thing for them to do is reduce the OD of the gas block a few thou.....

    Another slight annoyance to note is any M-Lok accessories on the lower part of the handguard aft of the block need to be removed to take the handguard off. This is due to clearances between the M-Lok t-nuts/screws and the gas block on the way by.

    My hand guard screws were good and tight with no lock tite. I did remove the screws on the safety selector and put blue lock tight on them. I’m not sure the gun is over gassing but the hand guard touching the gas block is effecting the groups. I could make my groups open up by putting more pressure on the fore end.

    Just received my wk the other day. Been busy so I haven’t had a time to fire it yet. But I am really pleased with the fit and finish. Will probably change the buttstock out, and I will let the trigger break in before I consider a replacement. Should be a fun shooter. If it proves to be reasonable accurate, it will be my dedicated coyote reaper.
