Why are your products called: MOUNT-N-SLOT™?
Impact Weapons Components PATENT PENDING MOUNT-N-SLOT™ brand Direct Attach Mount design allows the operator to mount a wide variety of firearms accessories and mounts directly to firearms and firearm hand guards with slots and holes, instead of the conventional way of mounting gun mounts to Rail Sections, mounted through slots. So MOUNT-N-SLOT™ explains how our products are attached to the firearm in very simple terms: Mount In Slot.
Where are your products made and materials purchased from?

How did you think of the MOUNT-N-SLOT™ design?
All of the partners in IWC are life-long shooters and outdoorsmen. One of our Partners was on the Pawnee National Grasslands east of Timnath, Colorado to do some shooting one morning and stumbled while hiking out to place a steel plate target, catching his finger on the Bolt-on MIL-Spec Rail section attaching the sling mount to his SBR AR 15, which stung. He thought about why a rail was on his AR 15 in the first place. On the drive back home, as he looked at the mountain peaks against the prairie through the windshield in the distance, the idea for MOUNT-N-SLOT™ brand Direct Attach mounts were born. A week or so later, he met with his friend, another life long shooter and avid outdoorsman who owns a successful machining and fabrication company and they discussed the concept for MOUNT-N-SLOT™ brand Direct Attach mounts. IWC was formed, Provisional Patent Applications were filed and the original product ideas have been turned into prototypes, our firearms accessories and gun mounts were tested and refined and are now available to sell to you, our customers.
