Iota Outdoors relayed to consumers that reduction time on its custom stocks has been reduced by more than 50-percent with customers now facing expected ship dates of just under three weeks.
This reduction in lead time, down from six weeks, applies to Iota custom series of Kremlin and Krux rifle stocks. Launched in 2016 and 2017, the stocks feature a composite molded and reinforced carbon fiber inlay design. The result is a durable yet lightweight build. Boasting molded-in colors and ports, the stocks offer custom-fit AirTech recoil pads by Limbsavers.
Available in Remington 700 or clone actions, the stocks deliver both right and left handed configurations in addition to short or long actions. The stocks serve up a few standard color options to include Citadel Grey, Sentinel Green and Gobi Tan as well as more than 20 color swatches to choose. Custom colors are available at no additional charge and do not impact lead time.
“We know that more often than not a stock can be the pacing item for a custom rifle. For a custom rifle builder, that can be the deciding factor in how many projects they can produce in a year, directly affecting their income,” Derrick Ratliff, president and founder of Iota, said in a press release. “From the very beginning, the current industry standard of eight to ten month lead times was not acceptable to us. We have worked hard to lower our lead times and we couldn’t be more happy with a two-and-a-half week lead time.”
