For the unveiling we are going to offer for a limited time a 10% discount for all Hide members that use the online stock configurator to place a order. This special offer will start 3-1-11 and go through 3-5-11. Make sure to please make a note in the additional info box, that you want to take advantage of the special hide 10% discout.

Please visit the sight, give us feedback on what you think, and if you have time leave a testimonial.

    Yes, in the online stock configurator, you can build your own molded-in 3color mcs-camo.

    Nice, nice job and very smoothly run website. That stock comparator is a good idea and works well too. Can't wait for my new stock build #4554.How can I get pics of my last stock you did on the site?

    I like it.

    1 idea, I wish it would show the price as I add options so I can keep up with the amount of cash I will spend.

    The other thing is barrel contours. Do you all plan on adding options or just type it in?

    Great site

    One suggestion is on the Products page, when clicking an image, instead of bringing up a lightbox to show the picture, have it go to the products sub page.

Do you all plan on adding options or just type it in? Great site John </div></div> It will probably stay just type it in for now. Barrel contours are kind of tricky, there is a lot of information that we need to know especially on the smaller contours. The other problem is that there is a bunch of barrel makers. I can name at least 8 or 9 off the top of my head. They all make around 20 contours each and the numbers between makers are never the same. A number #3 Bart is nowhere close to a #3 Douglas. The stock configurator was designed just a quick tool to help the customer make his selections and see the basic inlets for each stock. It also collects the basic info to get the ball going. We will always contact the customer to go over the small details.
    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: crossgun</div><div class="ubbcode-body">GREAT Job! Love the MCS Logo as well </div></div> Thanks we tried to keep it basic.

    There is still a lot of work that needs to get done on the site over the next few weeks. Thank you all for your input.

    True, I just instinctively clicked on the picture expecting it to to go the page.

    Another suggestion would to put a kicker somewhere that shows up on every page that says "Build your stock now" or "Configure a stock". This way if I'm reading the about us or viewing pictures I'm one click away from a purchase.

    looks great. Also I know you are still offering the Badger 2008 inlets since I just bought one but its not on the stock config?

    P.S. maybe have the old website redirect you to the new one.

    Yes the badger 2008 is a standard inlet in the mcs-t4a, we also offer it in others but the back tang needs to be built up. I will check on that one it should be in there. Who do you have as your internet provider. The domain name has been redirected to the new host. Thank you
