I'm really happy to see gas blocks and 80% lowers being brought in to the US for the Wolf A1 upper, but ultimately my goal is to make a T91 clone as close to the original as possible, and a barrel + sight block that matches the original seems to be forever out of reach. Any word on how (or better, when) I might be able to get one?

Well, we can try to get them but are you sure you want to go for the 15mm gas port journal barrel profile? It's known for overheating and some other issues.

IMHO continuous improvement are necessary and these issues need to be addressed from the original design flaw. Not too long ago 205 armory introduced heavy barrel profile of T91 but not too many people know about it.

It would be cool to get some of the Taiwanese CHF barrels Wolf uses on their uppers along with a T91 upper to make a more correct upper without the Wolf logo.

I'm mostly trying to build clones rather than buy the coolest AR. I'm very interested in what the 15mm profile barrels are like, since it pushes the envelope beyond the lightweight ARs we have here in the US.

I know I'm in a minority, but I find clones that aren't flawless are more interesting.

It would be nice to have a smaller profile to lighten up the front end a little. Add of those LW-15 lowers from from New Frontier Armory and a light weight stock it would be a interesting rifle or pistol
