It is not an elite carbon fiber model. I was told that it will take 7 to 10 months to get here so I was happy to hear it only took 3.

I got my T6A carbon elite in 5 months. Unfortunately they didn't include action Screws or a magazine plus it looks like my trigger is interfering with the mini chassis.

    As a follow up to my above post, I shot Mr. Manners a PM and literally with an hour got a phone call. They have arranged to have me send back the stock (with my trigger) and they will inlet the stock for me and send me the missing parts. I have heard of the outstanding customer service from this company, and I want to echo everyone's sentiments by saying this company does not fall short on customer service and it is very clear that they are willing to go above and beyond to take care of their customers. Other companies should strive to maintain this level of service and after-purchase care!

    I've had one on order since November. At the time they told me 6 months. I checked with them last week and it sounded like it was ahead of schedule. In the meantime I've found two on their ready to ship stocks that met my needs. You might want to check it out. They just put a bunch more on that list.

    I ordered my Manners T2A Elite Cabon on November 2nd. Sent an email to Manners about two weeks ago and they said 4-5months. I sold my old PRS rifle to make this build happen. Wish I had known in advance that leads time were this long.

    Hi Guys, just got on the new Hide sight, looks great. As of now we are still quoting 5 to 6 months on standard builds. Some of them have been running a little quicker and some slower, it usually depends on the build specs and type of stock. The first of the year we added a additional 6k sqr feet to our operation here in NKC. We are in the process of installing the new production lines and hope to see the benefits mid this year. This addition does not affect our current production it is just a expansioin. Like always you guys can PM me here on the hide if you have issues or have any questions and I will get you taken care of. Thank you very much,

    Thanks for the fast response. PM'd you already. I do believe some of the hold up is do to making a few slight changes to the inlet and some other add-ons. Still believe Manners is the best on the market. Bought my first one used from a guy at my local club. He never finished the build. It has held up outstandingly for the past 5 years. I'm not easy on my equipment either. It has allowed my to take a dozen deer in NY in that time frame at distances out to 600 yards!

    I just placed an order for my second build. It's a TF4 Elite. I'm super excited but I was never given a lead time. Any ideas on wait time for these? Any hold up on the folder or elite stocks?

    I'm posting from my phone and don't have my exact order, but the T2A I received in December took only 5-6 months. I'm having it pillar bedded this month.

    Manner's comes thru early. Just got an email, my stock is in finish should be 1-4 weeks before completed. My heart is pounding. Just waiting on Bartlein now for my barrel and I have to order a set of rings. Then off to Travis Ridell at R Bros. Stoked!!

    Ordered an EH1 with mini-chassis in late December. Just got word that it is complete. 4.5 months is not bad. LRI is shipping a new barreled action tomorrow. May is going to be a good month this year!

    Ordered an EH-1A in swamp camo on 2-27-17 and it arrived 5-17-17. Changed color early on to one that had just made a batch of and it came out nice and quick. Thanks Manners.

    This is irrelevant to Manners lead times but has anyone ordered a stock in their earth brown finish? I have four T4A stocks in coyote tan and just curious what earth brown looks like.

    I have one at the shop right now, I think it looks excellent. Kind of a mix between the coyote and and chocolate color.

    Not a new stock order, but i was just told about 4 weeks turn around time to install gen 2 mini chassis' in my two T4A's. One is for a badger 2013 and they are fixing a couple issues that i made myself. Also, my e-mail was answered in less than a half hour from me sending my request and that was at ~8PM est. Truly a great company to work with!

    Hey Gunslinger,

    For some reason I couldn't PM you back cause the texting function wouldn't work on my phone. Anyways here's the dark earth finish on the EH1 that SAC just finished.

    You can choose three colors if you use the "stock builder." Not sure if blaze orange is an available color, but all the colors from their patterns are available.
