Things I liked: Pyramyd Air offers this putty at a substantially lower price than anywhere else I have looked. Keep in mind this is a six pound piece which works out to only $2 a pound plus if you slip it in with an order over $150 there will be no shipping charge. I took advantage of this and ordered three of these six pound bricks that I pressed into the metal seat part of an old folding metal chair that I scraped. Laying two sideways and cutting one in half lengthwise to fill in the sides it pretty much covers the entire 14" x 14" bottom of the chair seat. The skirt around the seat makes for a good finger hold for moving it so I left a small 1" gap along the top to be able to use it for that. There is a thin unfilled strip along the bottom and small unfilled areas in the corners, I did not see this as a problem. I cut a 12" 4x4 in half with 1/4" grooves in the middle of each to mount as feet which a single 3 1/2" x 1/4" stove bolt in each mounts them. It is a hefty 29 1/2 pound trap when completed.
Things I would have changed: Maybe add some photos or suggestions on how to use it for those who don't tinker with different things who seem to be lost on what and how to use it. When it arrives in it's plastic wrapper it feels like it is too mushy to be good for what it is designed for so I was surprised that .177 Crosman Premiers out of my CO2 Umarex Fusion at 79 f and 700 fps only penetrated 7/16" at 4 yards distance measuring to the nose of the pellet. This stuff works great. I used seventeen 1/8" steel pop rivets to mount a 13 1/2" x 13 1/2" piece of metal to the back of it that I cut out of a similar metal seat with some electric shears. I don't think this was needed but if I take one of my higher power pellet rifles to it I'll feel better. It is sturdy enough for me to lean a large 30" x 30" x 3/4 medium density particle board behind it just in case of an errant pellet. The 4" x 4" x 6" long feet are some old pressure treated I had around same as the bolts, only cost was the putty, $36 less a 10% coupon.
What others should know: The chair seat just fits a 14" x 14" target which I really like and the tag board sticks right to the putty and even peels off just as easy as sticking it on. What a great trap. It won't replace the large cardboard box with stainless sheet steel backing and two dozen layers of shop rags zip tied to some heavy cardboard that I use for my indoor 7 yard shooting. This one will be for those times I can slip outside with my neighbors away and take advantage of some distances up to 25 yards in back. I won't have to worry about this one being caught in a sudden down pour and even though my indoor one is just as quiet I feel this one offers a higher degree of safety plus presents it's self as looking the part too rather than some cardboard box arrangement. I should have tried this out years ago. The 30 pound weight of my trap may shy some away but it will weather well if you want to leave it outdoors. The putty is staying stuck to the vertical metal no problem. This is a super system.
How many bricks are required to refill the A.G.E. trap?
How malable is the putty?Is it soft enough to roll out to cover a larger area?
Yes it is but you will need to keep it fairly thick to be able to stop the projectiles.
how much area will one 6 lb. brick end up covering ?
It depends on the thickness you want to use. The dimensions of the brick are 1 3/8" high X 6" wide X 10 3/4" long.
