We have the chassis' here and we had a mold made but they didn't match up like we expected. A new mold is being made to get the orders back up and going. We didn't feel like the other was acceptable and we want it to be right! Please get with me if you have an order that's old and we will do anything we can to get you fixed up. I'm here to help!
I've been in touch but the ctr mini chassis is the whole reason I ordered. I will just keep waiting since I have no choice. The wait sucks but I expect it to be a quality product when I get my hands on it.

I ordered the PRS1TK with the DBMTK chassis designed for use with Tikka CTR mags. Original order was March and they quoted me mid-Sept ship date.

Got an email last week saying they can’t get the Tikka magazine variant to work. I’ll have to go with an AICS style magazine. This sucks because I bought six Tikka CTR mags for my T3x CTR when they were only sale last winter. I’m not sure what to do. Is anyone having problems using AICS mags with their in this new chassis? Specifically what AI mags work? I’m wondering if I should sell the rifle and buy something else.

FYI, they are very hard to get a hold of. I called twice and left a message. Will try again this week.

Yes I had to change my order as well, the AICS mags work just fine, I do however like the buttery smooth feeding of the CTR mags, for right now if you want a manners you will have to run the aics until they get it fixed or choose a stock that can be inletted for CTR BM. Contact Robert Brantley @
Robert@mannersstocks.com he will give you your options and is great to work with he helped me out more than I could ask for, hope this helps

Not sure about Manners - Tikka issues but all I can say is that everyone in that company I have interacted with from Tom Manners down has been a class act... Totally worth the wait on a stock/mini chassis system and if you run into any issues they'll totally take care of you, full stop

Hey Guys, sorry I've been out for a few days for family issues.

We have hit a snag for all the CTR mini-chassis and that still has it being re-worked to make good. I hope to hear good new on this soon. However, I will do whatever I can to help guys with their order if they placed one. I will get them swapped to GEN2DBM for the same price or help them in any other way that I can. Please let me know if I can help in any way.

Thanks for the update. I am holding out hope for the ctr chassis as that is really what sold me on upgrading.

No worries, we will keep pushing forward on the project. You have your place in line either way you go. The option of swapping will always be there so let me know if that changes. Till them I'm anxious to check this out as it seems like it will turn into a sweet little rifle package.

Robert,
Is it possible to send back a stock to Manners to add a mini-chassis system? The stock is T4A that was already inleted for Defiance Deviant action. It's a Carbon fiber shell one that has never been used or pilar beded.

thx

Yes sir!, I saw your PM but in case anyone ever wanted to know it's usually pretty easy granted the bottom metal inlet isn't larger than the chassis. Example: A surgeon is wider where our chassis is very close to the M5 cut so going from that is much easier.

Hope this helps!

Anyone gottem a PRS1-tk lately? What was the lead time. I ordered one 6 months ago.
I ordered at the start of July and have been told it will ship this month to Australia. Just waiting on the carbon fibre barrel channel to be completed so I'm hoping to have it in late Feb once it clears customs.

Got notice today that my PRS1TK stock with the DBMTK chassis designed for AICS magazines will ship 1st week of Feb. I originally wanted the Tikka magazine chassis but was told there was issues with it. I went ahead and paid the $1200 owed (mine has a bottom rail, flush cups for a sling, adjustable cheek piece). Again, this is for a Tikka T3x CTR. I ordered some factory AICS magazines and a Magpul one to try. I’ll post a range report when I get to shoot it

If you aren't too picky flat top is the way to go! Although that selection is getting smaller lately.

you have to keep checking it and be patient, I’ve found two recently that was exactly the color and stock I needed. But when they update it you better be on your game they go fast 🤣

I'm sitting on 11 months right now after receiving notifications that it would be completed in August of '18, September of '18, November of '18, and now I need to wait another week because they don't have the mini chassis in stock. I know Manners gets a lot of love here, but buyers need to treat this company like a tax stamp.

Don’t get me wrong I’ve waited over a year for one myself, but they will work with you and help if possible. Send Robert a email he will get you straight, he’s helped me more than anyone there including Tom , there all great people just super swamped and to me Robert is more consistent than the other guys and gals 🤷🏼‍♂️

Oh, I agree... they've had a bunch of very nice people trying to assist. I'm just throwing my experience out there so folks have realistic expectations for delivery. I made the mistake of counting on the stock arriving for my September and December hunts based on our comms. I won't do that again.

Hi Tom,

I don't have a build number sorry - the order was placed through Ignition Custom Engineering in Australia - the stock is a PRS1TK, left hand, arctic camo pattern, medium palma profile. The last I was told was that the carbon fibre barrel channel should be completed this week and then it's good to go.

They have an area on their website that shows what they have in stock.
https://mannersstocks.com/stocks-for-sale/
Let em keep building mine 😂
Oh I know, I check it 5 times a day hoping I catch an update but it never seems to happen. Then of course on the day I'm traveling, like last week, the page gets updated and they all sell. I would quit my job so I could better monitor the page but then I wouldn't be able to afford a stock. First world problems I guess.

Emailed them because the drop down menu wasn't working but haven't heard back. Trying to stick with the t2a gap or prs 2. Not a big fan of butthook. I'll have to call core tomorrow to see what they have. I guess Altus now. Looks like they changed names

Hi
I ordered a T4A for my Nucleus at the end of August/beginning of September and just received notice to contact for payment as it'll be ready in 2 to 4 weeks.
So I didn't submit payment until Dec 14th, but I got tracking yesterday and should be here Monday. Glad it got out before SHOT, but not sure if it matters as I don't know when I'll get shooting.

I approved two stock orders on 27 August, paid the invoice near the end of December. I received the first stock a few weeks ago and the second stock today.

Manners updated their flat top inlet ready section last week. It was 3 pages long with a lot of t4a, t2a gap, and t6a. Better jump on them if they'd something you have been wanting. Turn around time is extremely reasonable on them

Ordered a manners through Stockys last month. They told me 8 months. They cancelled my order because they said manners won’t sell to them any longer. Bummer.

Hi grouse, I am sorry for any inconvenience, but that is correct. As of about two weeks ago we no longer sell to stockys. Our customer service policy’s differed on some key points and I felt we could better service our customers direct. If you would please pm with what you where needing and I will get you taken care of ASAP. Thank you
