IMHO 25% still acceptable unless you are not able to zero it.

I've heard spec is 12 clicks. Are the clicks same on every type of sight? It's more like 20 clicks on the Magpul...

Not sure about that. Each manufacturer may have their own or different thread for the sight adjustment,

FWIW I pulled both my barrels and lapped my uppers and it made a recognizable difference in accuracy.
Wow I don't even really know what that means. It seems ok in terms of accuracy. I could get nice groups and even rounds to touch. Just bothers me I have to adjust the windage halfway to the left to get it to zero.
It's the process of truing the face of the upper to ensure it has as close to a perfectly flat mating face for the barrel extension as possible. Is it absolutely necessary? No. Does it improve the accuracy? On some rifles more than others, a lot of it depends on the quality of the upper and barrel extension to begin with,

This is what I use:

Just scrolling through old posts about zeroing it, I ordered Wolf A1 upper 4 days ago, still waiting to ship, I just wonder if all the problems (front sight post will go lose after disassembling and then reinstalling, rear sight post have to go really left in order to get zero) is still exist on their new products. @onion19@

Hey all,

I got my upper recently maybe about a month ago. I recently tried zeroing my T91 at 25yards with the oem iron sights. I had to turn the rear sight all the way to the left (as some had already reported) and the front post all the way down. I ran out of adjustment room.

They included a shorter front post with the purchase of the rear sight FYI. Not sure if that’s always been the case.

I contacted wolf so we’ll see what they reply.

Check to see if your gas block is canted by removing the front sight post and screwing in a few sections of cleaning rod, the longer the rod the more exaggerated the effect if it is canted. The rod should directly in line with the holes on the hand guard or piston tube and rail on the upper looking at it front the front or back, if not send it back on warranty.
