The WK180C GEN 2 model introduces plenty of innovative features along with improved ergonomics from a sleek lighter lower receiver. Highlights include new non-reciprocating cocking handle, external bolt catch standard, extended handguard, attractive aesthetic with smoother angles, and new pins/additions intended for greater customization compatibility.

The Kodiak Defence WK180C is designed and manufactured in Canada, providing an affordable, reliable, and lightweight rifle for recreational shooting and hunting. The upper receiver is finished STANAG 4694 rail system (Picatinny rail) to allow for the fitting of optics or iron sights (not included), and the free-float railed handguard has more than fifty M-Lok slots to allow for the attachment of your favorite accessories (sold separately). Standard features include an ambidextrous safety, short-stroke gas piston system, aircraft-grade 6061-T6 aluminum receivers, black hard coat anodized Class III finish, and A2 flash hider.

Additional Information:

*There is slightly less underclearance on the rail of the upper receiver than is specified by STANAG 4964. There are some sights which will not be able to be mounted to the rifle without adaptors, but almost all sights on the market will mount without issue. Consult the manual before purchasing sights for this rifle.  Kodiak Defence reserves the right to change details and specifications at any time. Furniture may not be as shown in photos.
