With a solid handle on efficient turnaround times, iota launched the KRUX with a design that is light enough to be considered ultralight, but built to be sturdy enough to run a full profile barrel without compromising the integrity of the stock — maintaining accuracy over repeated shooting — in a design that’s never been seen before.
Focusing on mobility, the KRUX is iota's lightweight sporter style stock featuring a skeletonized body and compact size. Perfect for backcountry builds, the KRUX weighs in at only 27 ounces.
After successfully solving the issue of lead time on custom stocks and the development of a classic and well received stock designed for hunters, Derrick shifted his focus to another major hole in the market — lightweight stocks. In his research, Derrick noticed another pattern: most ultralight stocks are only inletted for a sporter barrel profile. The problem with that is sacrificed repeatability in order to drop weight. In Derrick’s mind, a hunter should be able to have both.
THE KRUX OF THE MATTER
The KRUX is engineered unlike any other stock currently on the market. The lightweight sporter style stock’s skeletonized back end provides a unique design style while reducing overall weight which helps land this stock at only 27 ounces. The grip is less canted than a traditional stock providing shooter comfort and the thumb recesses encourage a correct grip for both right and left handed shooters. The barrel channel can accommodate more contour options than the traditional sporter stock including a standard Sendero barrel contour, the pre-installed pillars help maintain accuracy focused structure, and the molded in ports avoid refinishing touch-ups.
