The Carbon X is a carbon fiber stock 100% designed and made in South Africa. Like any of our projects, APW products and equipment are based on the needs of shooters like you.
Why the X you ask? The Carbon X was designed from the ground up to be a hybrid system that can flourish in multiple diciplines. Whether you are taking your 6.5PRC hunting or attending a competition, the Carbon X will exceed your expectations
First, we assess why something should be made, then we figure out how best to make it. Simple enough, right? In theory, yes, but in application, it takes a mastery in a host of critical disciplines: design & engineering, material selection, the fabrication process, and testing. We'd say that the results are worth it, and if you've ever used any of our products, you probably agree.
The Carbon X will be available at launch for:

R5,000 is a deposit payable to secure your pre-order. Price estimation is between R20,000-R25,000. Before we begin assembling your pre-order you will be contacted to spec your options (ARCA, Picatiny Rail, Color)
Shipping date estimation 2 - 3 months (as of May 25th 2022). Hopefully we will ship sooner, but we would rather under promise and overdeliver :-)
Before manufacturing begins, we select the specific fibers, resins, and weaves for each stock. Just as important as the carbon we select is the fiber orientation, or "layup schedule development," which is how the carbon is wrapped or placed on the stock. A good example of this is that some areas of the Carbon X utilise a higher mixture of high modulus carbon fiber, which is stiffer, in order to prevent bending, flex for better follow through on your shots. The most advanced materials in the world are nothing without the proper construction and execution.Weight including mini chassis - 1.238kgs
