I see the video above had it fine for left handers but who knows what the 12 inch barrel will do with the ejection pattern?

I don't think it will be an issue since the gas port is in the same place and the barrel is made shorter after the gas port.
Mine didn't. Mine shot all the ammo I brought out to about the 4:00 position. This was about the same experience I had with the 16 inch barreled one as well.

I'm just running a standard carbine weight buffer though, I'm considering changing to a H or H2 buffer to see what that looks like.

Took my 12 wolf upper out yesterday and found that I had a few problems with feeding from the first mag using m193. After that initial hiccup the gun ran great. The recoil impulse is different than a regular ar, and I think it is smoother.

I tried some left hand shooting and found the brass was clearing my face by a couple of inches.

I left the range very impressed with the upper and I can't wait to take it to my next sig academy class. I also tried different weight buffers and found that I had the best luck with a H3 buffer.

That is normal on these.
For those getting these keep in mind it was mentioned that they should be broken in with brass, this from the head dude at WPA but after that anything goes.
It even states this on the box.

I couldn’t tell if my 16” was having feeding issues initially because my dumbass didn’t have the gas tube locked in, so it was a single shot for a mag before I found out I was retarded, after I locked the gas tube back in place there were no cycling issues at all, no jams since...

Has anybody checked headspace after running it?

Yep. Out off the box it was tight on a go gauge, but it still passed. It would not close on a no-go gauge.
After the three hundred rounds I ran through over the course of a hour I brought it home and re checked the headspace. Still was a little tight on the go gauge and still would not budge on a no go gauge.
That guy only ran 15 rounds through a upper that clearly states on the box that it needs breaking in.
My personal 12" upper was a little finicky for the first magazine, but after that it broke in and ran fine. I would recommend breaking in with m193 for a hundred rounds before anyone worries.

EDIT- not sure what the Taiwanese spec is on proper head spacing so I did all the headspace measureing with the ejector removed and a second time with the ejector installed. Both tests were done without the extractor because it has a very minor chance of giving a false reading. Both test the upper was fine but a little tight.

Shot my 12" upper today. Ball 55gr M193. First mag tight close first round, fired and had next round FTF. Same thing on second try. After those 2 FTF, it ran 100%.

30RD Federal M193
30RD IMI M193
20rd Silver Bear 62gr SP
20rd Wolf Gold, 55gr
100 rounds total, nice shooter.

Also the 12" from Atlantic did not come with a taller front sight? When I added a fix back sight it was too short to zero?

I looked up LWRC SBR Piston Uppers....MSRP of around $1,800 to $2,000. After that I felt pretty good snatching up one of the 12" Wolf uppers. How could I afford not to?

Had my 12" out again yesterday. Shot great. I put an H2 buffer in it to see if it made any difference, and I honestly couldn't tell the difference, but it wasn't having any trouble with the standard weight buffer anyway, I just thought it may dampen the recoil. My cheek couldn't tell much of a difference.

I got it zeroed in with a vortex spitfire prism red dot I had sitting around and after that I was dinging steel at 300 yards with it. Not every shot mind you, but if my eyes could see the plate I was shooting at better I'm sure it would have.

I'm liking this upper quite a bit. Oh and for the question about headspace, my answer is no, I did not check the headspace on mine, nor do I plan to, it has functioned great (other than with tulammo).

My 16" A1 upper on the other hand, definitely had a tight chamber or something when I initially shot it, but whatever it was has broken in fine after 300 or so rounds. I had it out yesterday as well zeroing in a carry handle I got for it. I had zero function issues with it and was also dinging steel at 300 after zeroing.

Dumb question, on my 12" is that from circle ring for removing the gas piston safe to mount a sling too it?

Syntax. Are you asking if the piston valve release can also be used as a sling loop?
Yes.
It has to be pushed in and rotated for release. It’s safe. On the military model it is not a ring but a flattened key with a sling loop between that key and the valve.

Thanks, then I'll be rigging this thing up for a sling there, I like the bottom rail in that picture too. Next thing I need is shorter rear sight, or a taller front sight base, and a better red dot. Me thinks this 12" SBR will make a great truck rifle for me.

I ordered the 12” this evening. Tried not to but I kept coming back to it.
It was my understanding that the 12” models front sight is standard AR height and should zero with any common AR rear sight. Am I mistaken?

I zero a red dot on my 12" and the fix rear I tried did not go down far enough. I will try a different one in a few days, but I think it needs front raised.

I believe that after these first came stateside WPA has just gone to the taller FS post because the two I got last year came with both and 99% of people that get these are going to use a standard AR height rear sight. I do.
The Taiwanese T91 actually has a shorter front and rear sight.

Don't think they're pinned.

Me again, if I get the 14.5" can I have the existing flash hider drilled and pinned, will it be 16" legal?

I know these barrels are Hammer Forgere and Melinoited, are they 4150 steel?

With the flash hider that comes with it it should measure over 16". But why go through all the hassle, just put it on a pistol lower with a brace.

Just SBR it.

I'm still holding out for them to deliver the correct gas block with bayonet lug.

In my state (NH) you can't keep a loaded rifle in you car because of hunting laws. To much deer poaching, fish and game doesn't care but the cops do.

Anyway I'm hoping at some point whoever is running the t91 forum and store will bring the correct gas block in. Honestly I'd use my 12" pistol as a nightstand gun instead of my 74u if I could get railed handguards that hold zero as well.

So could you just bring your rifle and load it before you shoot?

Seems like not a big deal.

Yeah it's the only stupid gun law in this state. Cops got a hard on for it though. No use getting a felony when I can skirt the law.

Osama wishes he had my good looks. Last pic I saw of him he wasn't looking so good .

Finally dropped my 16" upper on a GWACs Lower. Does this even still count as an AR15?




And another project I'm working on...
