By Richard from USA on 2011-12-18 18:42:33

Things I liked:

This trap is really great. I think the problems people are having with pellets getting through the putty material can all be avoided. First, take the putty out of the plastic it comes in. Second, pack it in to the base so it's one solid piece with even coverage. Regardless what the description says the amount of putty that comes with it is the right amount. Works great and really is very quiet.

Things I would have changed:

I added a handle at the top like a few others have done. This really makes it much easier to cary. It is heavy so its kind of awkward to carry without a handle, especially with one hand. It is a little pricey but the putty is not cheap and it is a great product even for the price.

What others should know:

Make sure to install the putty properly and it will work great. I bought a sheet of foam board for a few bucks and cut out openings for the different size targets I'm using. Then I just clip the targets to the board and slide them in. I don't use the cardboard backing at all.

By srs from USA on 2010-03-17 08:10:23

Things I liked:

Good idea, but not strong enough. Two units arrived in the mail with the back panels detached from the weight of the ballistic putty moving during shipment. The back panel is thin and held on only with staples. A stronger design is needed to support the weight of the ballistic putty.

Things I would have changed:

he back panel needs to be stronger and held on more securely to avoid having the weight of the ballistic putty make it detach from the rest of the box

What others should know:

Customer service was excellent -- among the best I've experienced for an internet purchase.

    Things I liked:

    It's exactly what it's said to be! A high quality piece that is very quiet. I mostly use it for .22 pellets, but my shooting buddy has shot .177s at it.

    Things I would have changed:

    Very well thought out, there's really nothing to improve upon.

    What others should know:

    Although one might think that this is a very expensive accessory, by the time a guy goes out, sources the components, puts it together, and finishes it, he'll have a LOT more than sixty bucks of time and materials in it! I know this because I did just that, and the targets I built just aren't up to the quality and usefulness that this target is! Generally, five pound blocks of duct seal aren't available locally. The blocks that these targets use completely fill up the interior, and there's little chance that a pellet is gonna sneak by and hit the back of it. The targets that I built depend upon you hitting a small area in the central part of the target...this Air Venturi piece is superior in every way. I ain't gonna lie! Well...not about this, anyway.

    Things I liked:

    Keep your shots within the frame, & it's worry free shooting.

    Things I would have changed:

    Have a removable top frame for it. Make it a little wider for further away shots, so the frame doesn't get hit. It could happen.

    What others should know:

    Not sure yet if there's replacement gel packs available for when the ones inside it get too many shots in them. Still wouldn't hurt to put something sturdy behind it to be safe.

    Things I liked:

    I would offer a metal plate to be placed in the box ahead of the duct seal. I put one in mine.

    Things I would have changed:

    In the photo I put aluminum strips around the exterior to save the box from errant pellets. I think this should be standard.

    What others should know:

    When this target is shot up you will have a good model for your own build.

    Things I liked:

    Excellent pellet trap for indoor shooting!

    Things I would have changed:

    The ballistic putty is not the full length of the trap. You need to put an inch of wood shim in there to level it off. But still well worth it!

    Things I liked:

    I really like this pellet trap. It is exceptionally quiet and the dimensions are just right. I have mine sitting on the top step of a step ladder leaning against the wall and it is the perfect size.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would make it a bit deeper as I get some paper chips coming out of the trap unless I continually use new cardbord backers.

    What others should know:

    This is a quality product. i highly recommend it. I am very happy with mine.

    Things I liked:

    Good use of 'sound quieting' material

    Things I would have changed:

    For the Price; could be much better quality (fit and finish)!

    What others should know:

    Target paper size showed this manufacturer's GREED! Off-Size! Because of design, cannot a commonly sized 12 bullseye target (which is much cheaper and more readily available). Therefore must buy THEIR targets or forced to "cut down" size of common targets. "Cheap Shot", PUN INTENDED!

    Things I liked:

    Great trap. Works Well. Worth the money.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would strengthen it a little. Nail the backing on a little better, glue the seams, etc. Maybe change the size - see below.

    What others should know:

    WARNING: Only order replace target from Pyramid Air. Regular AR-5/10 12 Bull targets are 10.5 x 12 inches. The 11.5 x 13.25 AR-5/10 12 Bull Targets are a special order for Pyramid Air Only.

    Things I liked:

    I liked this product, and use it pretty much every day. But it came slightly banged up (which didn't really bother me - its a pellet trap...) But the price...seems out of whack. If the box isn't terribly well crafted (looks just like a pine box), you're sort of overpaying - duct seal doesn't seem to be that expensive.

    Things I would have changed:

    Should come with a few replacement cardboard backers.

    Things I liked:

    Love that it's sized for the NRA targets. It's handsome, especially after I added am antique brass handle which makes it much less clumsy to carry.

    Things I would have changed:

    If you're shooting a high velocity air rifle the pellets will blow right through the "ballistic putty" and through the wooden box's back. I had to add a 1/8 inch piece of sheet steel ($15) to make it right. Ends up being rather expensive overall, but it suits my needs now.

    Things I liked:

    Stops .25 cal from Hatsen sniper rifle no problem. If you miss the clay the rifle will blow right through the hard wood box. Works great. No ricochet problem. Stops everything.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing. You can cut up cardboard to back the targets and keep the clay in. I would add a handle because it is fairly heavy and hard to carry.

    What others should know:

    Works well to stop whatever you are shooting. I would back it up with a piece of plywood in case you miss the clay.

    Things I liked:

    Works as advertised, Quieter than other traps I have used, both boughten and home made. Sure stoppage of the pellets. Holds the targets well.

    Things I would have changed:

    Atop handle would be a nice addition.

    What others should know:

    Expensive, but a very good product.

    Quiet! Great for indoors or in the suburbs. Well built. Nicely finished wood.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    When you get this trap, take off the cardboard front, lay it on a flat sturdy surface, take your fists and push the ballistic clay down, spreading it out. If not, expect a few holes through the back of your trap! Ask me how I know....

    Th first time I used it, I had a tight 5 shot group that blew a hole through the back about the size of a quarter...using nothing more than 12FPE.

  • 3.0 3.0

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    It is quiet and mostly well-made. Most of the pellets embed nicely in the duct seal material ("ballistic putty") which sits behind a cardboard target backing.

    Things I would have changed:

    The back of the trap is made of very thin wood which fractures easily as the pellets fly through the seams in the three bags of duct seal. The biggest annoyance is that the 10M 12 Bull targets I previously purchased are too small for a secure fit. I have to use push-pins to secure the target. As others have said, there are only 12.5lbs of duct seal rather than 15lbs.

    What others should know:

    The "target backer" is actually just a piece of cardboard. I now make sure I cut replacement cardboard backers whenever I receive a large shipping box. The duct seal material is actually 2 1/2 bags of 5lbs each. Unfortunately, pellets can fly between the edges of the bags and into the trap backing. I've tried reforming the bags but haven't solved this problem. Make sure you purchase the 10M targets linked on the trap's web page so you get the right size.
