This is a 8″ round target with 1/2″ mounting holes on 5″ centers (same as all sizes of round and square gongs). Lifting eyes are highly recommended to angle the target downward for safety. Round gongs include a Lexan (polycarbonate) paint template to accurately mark the bullseye. The template is reusable hundreds of times.
Durability: Quinn Steel Targets are waterjet machined from domestic AR-500 steel plate. Quinn targets are never cut by laser or plasma due to the high heat that weakens AR-500. By waterjet machining our products, we can ensure the material does not rise above room temperature so that our targets have a uniform hardness from center to perimeter. Waterjet machining allows Quinn Steel Targets to achieve the highest possible product durability and sets us apart from our competition.
Material/Plate Thickness: 3/8″ thick AR-500 steel plate is recommended for pistols, carbines and long range shooting. Common thicknesses are 1/4″ (rimfire), 3/8”, 1/2” and 3/4″.
Tip: If you are deforming or penetrating 3/8” AR-500 targets, increasing plate thickness does not always solve the problem. You will need to reduce the velocity of your bullet to under 2,000 fps by increasing the distance between you and the target.
Finishing: Quinn Steel Targets offer many finishing options from bare metal to custom powdercoat. Please take into consideration that even the best coatings will not withstand a bullet strike at the point of impact.
