INCLUDED INSTRUCTIONS!

NEW ~ We have added optional paddles so shooters can use .22LR ammo! Ammo is expensive, so our newly added 1/4″ A36 Hot Rolled Pickled and Oiled (HRPO) paddles are sure to react with this light caliber ammo. Designed for .22 rounds only. You risk damage to the target should you shoot with higher caliber ammunition! When you select “add .22 paddles”, we’ll make sure you receive the correct amount of .22 paddles for your kit size selection.

All kits come with de-burred pivot tubes. You will receive the correct amount of tubes depending on which configuration of paddle targets you order. Keep in mind, if you order kits with both AR500 paddles and .22 paddles, you’ll only receive 1 set of tubes. The idea is to make these paddles interchangeable. Swap paddles depending on the ammunition you are shooting!

Optional Pivot Tube Upgrade: As an option, we’ve added BEEFY 1.5″ DOM pivot tubes. The DOM pivot tubes provide extreme resistance to wear and are twice the thickness of our our standard pivot tubes provided with the kit. Your dueling tree will get a lot more life from the additional strength of the thicker walled pivot tubes. Well worth the upgrade!

Recommendations: When building your tree, we recommend purchasing 1.5″ angle iron in .25 thickness. The height of the tree is up to you. Also, when welding the angle iron to the base, always have the top of the angle iron leaned toward the shooter, with the “V” facing the shooter as well (to protect the pivot tube). This way gravity will keep the targets to either the left or right position and you won’t have to worry about them getting stuck.

Don’t forget to add our Multi-Purpose Base (MPB). The MPB is configured to accept the angle iron at a 22 degree lean. No guess work on how to set up your tree. Plus, the MPB can be used for ANY of our reactive target systems. Check it out!
