    Default Field Target knockdown targets

    Who makes Knockdown targets in SA these days ?
    And at a good price ofcourse
    Does Mkonto still make / has anyone bought from them ? Hows the quality ?

    I tried Jaco Human last week but he hasn't replied.

    I would like to get a few (say 30 or so) for me (and PE), doesn't help trying to get FT into PE without targets.

    Would like more than just the GAMO targets.

    The Gamo targets are the best value on the market and they WORK!

    I make knockdown targets. They come with 3 reducers and sensitivity adjustment. You can see some in my gallery and we can negotiate based on quantity and spec.

    Incidently, the Gamo targets seem to be made of softer than usual materials and dont hold up as nicely as good mild steel but I will say this, they are good value at that price and the reason for the low price is mass production without choice of design so the tooling and assembly never changes and is long since payed for. If you had to contact Gamo and ask for a design that they dont already have then you will probably be turned away or you would have to order thousands to avoid violent costs.

    Andrew my good man.Far be it for me to disagree.I have found my 4 gamo targets to be top quality.I have 4.1 I have used a lot to practice.50 shots a day for a long time.This target has been hammered by me at 27 - 30 m for a long time.It is only now that it is showing sighns of high usage.I can only say.They rock as far as targets go.I must however say I only use mine at 12 ft/lb.

    Allan, I agree, at 12ft/lb there shouldnt be a problem but in Capetown most of the guys shoot with 1000 fps springers and untuned BAM,s and the like and furthermore we even have some 20cal shooters which frequent our shoots and I would rather panel beat targets than tell people that they cant shoot with us. Anyway, it's been my findings that between the Gamo's of which I have 5 and the twenty five that I made for the club, the Gamo's fair far worse than the ones I made. I can always tell which Gamo's were positioned at less than 30 metres cause they all end up bowed and of them look pitted like a golf ball which lends to my suspicion that the steel is of a softer composition.

    I have even replaced the rivetts in the likages on two of them after they broke. I'm not saying that the ones I made are immune to damage but I,ve had no breakages and the distortion of the faceplate is always minimal even at 10 metres.

    Gamo's do have their place though and I will always have them in the lineup at shoots but only for reletively long shots for obvious above mentioned reasons and also the lack of reducers but for their asking price they are a real bang for a buck.

    Andrew,
    I know you make very nice targets, but I'm looking for "cheaper" at this stage.
    I will just have to go and get someone to cut some faces, anybody got CAD designs ?

    Anyone interested in some heavy duty 4 or 5mm thick silhouettes with heavy duty lollipops to suit?

    That should keep the high power guy's happy.
