U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- We used a series of these well-conceived reactive target systems to evaluate the Sig Sauer MPX .177 cal semi-automatic air rifle. They're both fun and efficient for sighting in your rifle.
The Quad Shooting Gallery is a miniature arcade made famous at State Fairs. This 22″ (W) x 10″ (H)x9″ (D) pellet trap is constructed of heavy duty, all-weather, powder-coated 1.2mm thick steel engineered specifically for .177/.22/.25 cal lead pellets from break-barrel/CO2 (12 gr/90gr) or pump air guns. It has 4 knockdown targets which magnetically lock down when struck.
These targets all reset to their starting positions by shooting the additional center target. We found the system to perform superbly after thousands of shots.
It really makes target shooting enjoyable while developing sharp shooter accuracy. This winter we set it up in the basement and our adolescent grandkids became expert shots in no time.
We used SIG Sauer Quad Spinner AIR-REFLEX targets outdoors for greater shooting distances. Again, their durable heavy-duty, powder-coated metal construction are made for .177/.22/.25 cal pellets from break-barrel CO2(12 gr & 90gr) pump air guns. The central Sig logo target has a heavy bottom mass so once struck, it rocks back and forth on its single axis. A lower axis contains targets on each side of the central target which spins when hit. All target surfaces have replaceable paper stick-on bulls eyes. These targets are built to last and their consistent performance made target shooting a blast.
