Could be fun.  But...he should back up and try it at 50' and one hand like we do it (or try to).

I wouldn't want to burn the ammo that would be needed to reset the thing.  I would rather hang it on it's side and hear the difference in the gong sound.

Good idea! Wish list: How about interchangeable front plates with different size holes for the 10 ring for timed and slow? Maybe scaled for different distances? How about making the plates black like the targets we use? Could it be made to hang from a target retriever for those of us who practice indoors?

Hi Everybody, I think it's an interesting concept with more than a few flaws. Yes, it requires too much

ammunition to function, The reset paddle should be reduced to the 9 ring diameter at 50'.

This target should be placed at 50'. And the darned price should be reduced to under $75 !


I have a quadrant swinger steel target that is designed for air pistols and air rifles. It has a

center swinger that has a 3/4" circular paddle that when struck by a pellet, swings/spins wildly giving

excellent positive reinforcement. There are also 4 movable rectangular plates surrounding the

the central 3/4" disk swinger that are useful for sighting air rifles at longer distances(25yd-55yds).

 I place this swinger target at 10 meters and at an appropriate

height. The target is made by Steel Plinkers and he once made a quad target for rimfire.

It would be best if I post a link to the site:

http://www.steelplinkers.com/Quadrant.html

I forgot to mention that I paint the entire face white, including the swinger disk. That way

I just area aim into the bottom third, and when the hold, sight alignment and trigger squeeze

is good, the center swings beautifully(3+ rotations).

Hi Guys!

I got a number of six inch rolled steel targets that I took to the workroom, and using a engraver, engraved the rings for both slow fire two of them, and then timed and rapid on another four.  Since they are six inch I figured out the correct distance to mount them from the firing line.  Cannot remember what it is sitting here at the computer but I want to say its farther then 25 yards proportionally for the six inch against the diameter of the black bull (7 ring for slow, 9 ring for timed and rapid). 

Behind the targets I posted a particle board and painted it off white.  The six bulls I painted black.  this is such that the bulls make the same sight picture as a paper target. 

I get the 99 cent rattle can spray paint at wally world, and shoot ten shots at each target. 

The impact is easy to score on the steel. 

I have only used these for 22 LR pistols. 



Upside:  No paper targets, no soggy targets when its raining, and malfunctioning staplers are no longer a concern.  Good for practice. 


Downside:  no paper targets to retain for record keeping. 

Regards,
Cranky


P.S.  Always take two staplers to the target board, The first one is gonna jam and the second one is going to run out of staples.  That way you can take the staples from the jammed one to reload the empty one.
