Details

Action Target's Portable Target Tree provides competitive, adrenaline-building, fast-action tactical training for two, and interactive high-speed marksmanship for one.

Advanced firearms training has never been so accessible or so effective, even for departments with extremely tight budgets and undeveloped range facilities. The Action Target Dueling Action Portable Target Tree gives you the tools to cost-effectively incorporate modern firearms training standards and techniques into your program — with potentially lifesaving results. In a competitive duel, two shooters begin, each with three targets on his side of the tree. At the start command, they fire at the targets on their respective sides. When a target is hit, it swings to the opposite side. Trouble is, the other person is knocking them back to your side at the same time. The first to clear all the targets from their side wins. Forget the white gloves and 20 paces, because this duel is in your face. The action is fast! Speed and accuracy are crucial. The tension and adrenaline it creates is real — and so is the competitive, combat-like experience it provides. If you miss, you lose. If you don’t reload fast enough to keep up, you lose. No excuses. No mercy. And fortunately, no casualties. Six durable target paddles, automatic gravity reset, and a splatter-reducing design combine to make the Dueling Action Portable Target Tree the best dueling tree ever made.

  • Reactive back and forth dueling action creates an exciting, highly competitive “duel”
  • Competitive shooting scenario increases adrenaline; induces stress similar to combat or live shooting situations
  • No-weld target plates swing from one side to the other when hit
  • Use as a competitive trainer for two shooters, or as a vertical plate rack for one.
  • Leans forward to control splatter, directing most of it into the ground
  • Hardened AR500 pistol or AR550 rifle steel plate paddles for safe use with handguns or rifles
  • Gravity reset automatically positions targets on either side

WHY STEEL?

Instant feedback: you see it, you hear it, you feel how to get it done. A spot appears… the target moves… the clang hitting a steel target immediately tells all your senses — your whole body, not just your intellect — that you’re right on target. So you can do it again. And again. And again. Just like that. Regular practice with steel targets reinforces positive behavior and programs muscle memory — to help make fast, accurate shooting a reflex. Like hitting a baseball or riding a bike, your body subconsciously remembers how to orchestrate all the variables required for success. The more it’s repeated, and the more senses involved in training, the faster your body learns and the more easily it remembers. So when it’s real, you react. You don’t have to think about shooting… only about identifying your target.

Not all steel targets are the same. Other steel targets may cost less up front, but just because they’re steel, doesn’t mean they’re safe. Only a few very specialized grades of steel are hard enough to make truly effective and long-lasting targets. Softer steels can be easily chipped or pitted by harder or higher velocity rounds. Even a moderately pitted surface, or a target with exposed brackets or bolts, can cause inconsistent splatter or ricochets at potentially dangerous angles.



Unlike cheaper steel targets, Action Target’s superior metallurgy and smooth construction means bullet debris splatters safely to the sides in a controlled 20° spread from the plane of the target upon impact.

Two grades of superior steel. For handguns or even high-power rifles. Action Target uses only the finest through-hardened AR500 and AR550 Brinell steel with a completely smooth surface for safe, predictable performance with a wide variety of weapons and ammunition. Standard AR500 steel targets easily withstand all standard handgun ammunition with no damage and predictable splatter. For a very modest increase in cost, target plates can be upgraded to Heavy Duty AR550 steel for additional use with high-power rifles (including LE standard .223 & .308 caliber) at appropriate distances.

Q&A's:

"A couple questions. First of all, what is the diameter of the steel plates (6"", 8"", 10"")? Also - your description says ""even if using the 550 Brinell Heavy Duty plates, the stand is not made of hard steel and is vulnerable to damage from high power rifle rounds"". I assume that the same stand is used for both 500 and 550 plates. Is this stand also vulnerable to higher power PISTOL loads (.45 ACP +P, .357 mag & .44 mag)? Also - in the event of damaged plates, can replacement plates be ordered? Finally - is there a way to secure this stand into the ground? Do stakes come with the dueling tree? Or - in the picture - there looks like something coming out of the bottom of the stand. Is this some kind of a stake? Thanks..."

From the manufacturer's website: NOTE: The center stand and feet are made of mild steel and are not intended to withstand the force of a bullet. Shooting the stand and feet may result in damage. The paddles or targets are 6"" diameter, and the manufacturer will sell replacements. There is no ability to stake the base down, however the pistol target is 110 lbs and rifle 125 lbs, and leans forward and should not move when hit. Thanks

"I have watched Hickok 45 many times work out on his tree which he purchased from Action. I have a small backyard range with various steel plates I was able to scrounge. I would like to know if you ever put your trees on sale, I can't really afford one at your asking price. It sure would make my range complete and would love to have one. I know you are high end for steel targets and I want to buy from you. Would your tree prices ever get around 350 to 375, if so I am ready to buy. I am not trying to wheel and deal that is about all I can afford to pay at least at this time. Thanks Larry"

The manufacturer does not really offer discounted pricing very often. By all means check our site every so often to see though.

"Would you please put your standard AR500 dueling tree on sale. I would love to have one for my range. I am looking for a price range from 340.00 to 375.00. Thanks Larry"

Hi Larry -- I wish I could put it on sale for that price, but that's what I pay for it.

"What type steel is the post made of?"

AR550
