Deer reactive targets feature a massive 1/2″ hinge pin that is completely protected behind the target. Vital organs will make a different distinctive “ting-ting” sound by swinging open and falling back to ready when shot.
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.
Mounting Options: All Quinn ground targets feature the same mounting dimensions so that you may change the style of target in a matter of seconds while keeping the base firmly staked into the ground. We offer 2 options to mount the ground targets depending on your desired target reaction:
- Knock Over Base – Steel plate only. Designed to tip the target over when shot. Rotate plate 180 degrees for a more stable target platform.
- Base with 2 Stakes – This configuration will keep your ground target firmly in place by combining stakes with the knockover base plate to anchor the target to the ground. Stakes are commercial grade designed for repeated use. 8” stakes are recommended for most applications. 12” stakes are available for extremely soft ground and sand.
