Boyds Hardwood Gunstocks Releases New Adjustable Comb Options

  View Printable Version 

Boyds has recently released an adjustable comb feature for many of their popular hardwood replacement gunstock designs. This new feature enables you to adjust the cheek piece of your stock to provide a better fit to your body. It also provides a more proper alignment between your eye and the firearm’s sights, which improves the accuracy of your shot. An adjustable comb is now available for Boyds Classic, Prairie Hunter, Platinum, Heritage, and Pro Varmint designs.

Boyds new adjustable comb allows approximately ½" of vertical adjustment. Shooters can easily adjust the comb height with a 5/32" allen wrench (included) by loosening the locking screws at the top of the comb and moving it to their desired height. To provide rust and corrosion resistance, the assembly uses two stainless steel sleeves, two stainless steel adjustment rods, and an aluminum base.

The new adjustable comb option from Boyds is the product of consumer demand. Boyds utilizes the product request form on their website as a guide for constantly adding new products and options to their product line. By focusing on the input received from customers, Boyds is able to provide the greatest selection of the most relevant gunstocks and options to meet the dynamic demands of the market.

Boyds is the leading manufacturer of high-quality hardwood gunstocks in the world. An American, family-owned business located in Mitchell, S.D., Boyds builds well over 100,000 different makes and models of gunstocks priced under $100.

Solar Power Arrives in Iowa!

  View Printable Version 

An Iowa born and raised renewable energy firm is challenging the status quo by making it their mission to bring affordable and reliable solar power to every business, farm, and home. Iowa Wind and Solar was founded in 2008 with one goal: Make saving money with solar simple. They have accomplished this goal through a turn-key solution that simplifies the planning, financing, and installation process. To make the installation of solar even simpler, Iowa Wind and Solar offers zero money down financing that saves businesses, farms, and homeowners money from the first day the solar array is installed. Plus, with federal, state, and local incentives that combine for a savings of up to 80%, there has never been a better time for businesses, farms, and homeowners to start saving money on their electric bill. Tyler Anderson, the President and Founder of Iowa Wind and Solar, recently shared his vision with the press, "Imagine a world where, instead of paying the electric utility and taxes, you could instead save that money and invest it in an asset that YOU own. An asset that will produce free power for decades to come, and won't cost you a dime more than you're already spending today. I don't know about you, but I like that world."Businesses, farms, and homeowners are encouraged to find out how much they can save on their electric bill by visiting: www.iowawindandsolar.com/save.
