Things I liked: What's not to like? A good product, easy to assemble, at a good price.
Things I liked: Made of heavy duty material and my eight year old grandson need only small amount of help to put together.
Things I would have changed: Why change a good thing.
Things I liked: It works, for the most part, in capturing pellets shot from 10 meters (33 ft). But it is a heavy duty piece, so it will last a long time.
Things I would have changed: The tolerances in the 4 main parts are abysmally poor. The assembled 'box' has gaps all along the two sides where the backplate and the vertical plates meet. There is also a gap along the line where the U-shaped 'trap' meets the backplate in the backside of the assembly. The geometry of the backplate and the lip need to be changed to minimize the back-scatter. The effective vertical 'height' of the box is NOT enough to accomodate the standard 12 bull 10-meter target. It can accomodate this target 'horizontally'.
What others should know: If you shoot indoors, be prepared to put a bead of RTV silicone (or caulking) all along the contact lines of the parts to seal the gaps. Else, lead dust WILL spill under and around the spot where you place the stand. Also, be prepared for occasional back-scatter. Pellet fragments fly backwards toward the shooter. I have hung a silicone rubber sheet (10 x 11 inches) behind the target to minimize this back-scatter. Any piece of rug, heavy fabric, felt, plastic tile or even heavy cardboard will work in that sense. It is a needed 'consumable'.
How much does this trap weigh?
What's the thickness of the plate?
Why can't you use steel BBs in this trap? I have a mix of .177 and .22 air guns for both BBs and pellets. If there's a better trap similar to this one that can handle both of those, I'd like to know about it as well. Thanks!
just because it's metal and steel BBs will ricochet violently. You can use Smart Shot BBs, which are lead.
I shoot bb's most of the tome. I found the copper clad lead bb's work well. H&N Excite Smart Shot .177 Cal, 7.4 Grains, Copper Plated Lead BBs. No ricochets.
