I sent customer service an email through the website to see if they are looking into this cocking sled problem but haven't heard back. I haven't called Jesse cause I know he's been at the ATA. What have you heard? The foot stirrup, I've already been told they are making a part for, however the fix is so easy I'm not worried about it... plus it's not much of an issue on mine. The scratching on the stock is my concern.
