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.

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:

    Heavy duty wood construction, simple yet effective for most break barrels up to .22 caliber. Easy to sight in your high powered rifles even in a basement, or large room without worries of ricochet. Love the duct seal design for a quiet backstop.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not to much although with .25 caliber becoming more popular maybe something a little stronger for big bores. I am hesitant to shoot my .25 break barrel at the trap for fear of damaging it.

    What others should know:

    Lets face it for your Co2 pistols, springers in .177 or .22 and most bb or pellet pistols or rifles this a perfect design. It is mainly a indoor target giving you the ability to shoot indoors which is great. One word of caution. When you first mount that scope on your new gun keep in mind that first flyer could hit the wood or miss the trap all together. Once you get it dialed in it is great for keeping that accuracy and marksmanship all year round.

    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:

    This trap works very well. It traps bbs and pellets with no ricochets.

    Things I would have changed:

    I don't see anything that I would change. Well, maybe I would put a carry handle on the top to make it easier to move around.

    What others should know:

    It is pricey. I ordered an extra back to make sure nothing goes through and it worked very well.

    Things I liked:

    The steel plate I added to the purchase> Good design and if some you filks do not like the soft wood frame just take the time and make your frame from hard wood, oak, ash or heart wood from a good tree.

    Things I would have changed:

    The list price is about $15.00 too highso just buy with a discount or buy one and make your own wood frame.

    What others should know:

    Buy It!!!

    Things I liked:

    Very quiet, excellent pellet trap.

    Things I would have changed:

    A little pricey.

    What others should know:

    I also own the non-metal plate version and love it (have had it for about 7 years). Got this one for my higher powered .22 pellet rifles. Like my first one I added a handle to the top which makes it much easier to carry. I cut out target frames from foam board, clip the targets to it, and slide the frame into the slot on the trap-fits perfect.

  • 4.0 4.0

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    The Quiet Pellet Trap performed as advertised with the ballistic Putty inside. The steel backing is a nice extra, although none of my shots have penetrated that for yet. I think removing pellets buried in the putty will be tedious. I haven't attempted that yet.

    Things I would have changed:

    The wood frame needs to be enlarged slightly to allow a little more error when shooting at side edge bulls and top line bulls. A high speed errant pellet will splinter the wood frame.

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    Solid, absorb, and stop anything. You can shoot inside, because it stops even .25 pellets from a magnum rifle, at a short distance. It is just great. Will not dissapoint hoy.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    The steel back Up is bit necessary. Unless you are going to shoot a small caliber fire arm.

    VERY limited range of replacement targets that will fit. Fabrication is so-so.

    This is an excellent pellet trap. It is very well made. It is good for indoor as well as outdoor use. Very good value for the money.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing at all. Very well made product.

    What others should know:

    Every air gunner should own this pellet trap as essential equipment.

    Things I liked:

    Well made and compact,It comes with 1 steel back up plate and putty if you buy the set You can adapt it by adding metal to exposed parts of trap to keep it from chipping the corners.

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe a larger size opening slot,There isn't much more to change it's perfect as it is.

    What others should know:

    I added steel to all exposed wood on trap to protect it and I also built a rolling stand for it and I surround the cart with steel braces in case of miss the ammo won't ruin the trap.

    Things I liked:

    Well constructed. Easier to clean out pellets than the one I was using.

    Things I would have changed:

    The price. 70 bucks is too much. Of course that ain't gonna happen.

    What others should know:

    I clean the trap after each use with tweezers. I've only shot an HW30S at it so far. Getting a Disco next month and will be digging deeper.

    Things I liked:

    Outstanding little Pellet Stop. Really an excellent way to enjoy air gunning right in the privacy of your basement. It does have to be cleaned out periodically. I do it after each session. But it also shows you how well the pellets your using perform. At lease in the putty.

    Things I would have changed:

    Wish is was just a bit bigger. Like 2' x 2' in size. Because it's so small I'm a little nervous about shooting at it from anything but a braced position. Shooting at from a free hand position, unless your really steady, may result in you shooting up your Basement.

    What others should know:

    How about offering up pre-cut backers that fit it. That corrugated plastic stuff might be a little messy then paper card board.

  • 5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    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.

  • 4.0 4.0

    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!

  • 4.0 4.0

    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.
