Safety & Engineering

Interceptor stocks are crafted from epoxy with glass and kevlar reinforcement, with a durable epoxy gel-coat outer layer before a final textured 2 pack paint finish.

The bedding area is made up with a hard solid fill of epoxy and resin; the butt and forend is an epoxy and glass ball fill for balance. The materials are of the highest specification and type approved for composite aircraft construction. Standard colour is black, other colours to special order.


Interceptor stocks are ambidextrous and supplied with an adjustable cheek piece; fixed butt plate with spacers as standard. An adjustable three position butt can also be supplied to order or can be readily retro-fitted.

All exposed aluminium parts are anodised for durability and protection against the elements. RPA two stage triggers were developed for competition shooters; this design has been incorporated into the Quadlite® trigger used in the Interceptor.
