Things I liked:

Very nice target. I had to use a little scotch tape on the magnets because they hold so tight that my lower power pellet guns (<400 FPS) shot at 25' did not have enough power to reset all the targets but w/ some scotch tape it works like a charm.

Things I would have changed:

Make the opening taller & raise the reset plate some.

What others should know:

Very happy with it.

By James from USA on 2021-04-08 08:00:44

Things I liked:

Sturdy design. Well built.

Things I would have changed:

Stronger magnets are needed. I was shooting a HW50 .177 at 20 yds and the targets would go down and bounce right back up. I switched over to a FWB 300 with <600 fps and at 20yds would get an occasional bounce up, but 90% of the hits would stay down. Stronger magnets would fix this. The targets themselves seemed pretty sturdy. Didn't notice any deforming.

What others should know:

Wadcutters will stick to the targets which then requires you to pry them off with a paint scraper. A pain! Domed pellets did not seem to stick. If you are using this target at 20 yds or less you need a low powered AG. Something under 600 FPS, otherwise the targets will go down and bounce right back up.

    Things I liked:

    Solidly built. Attractive. Nicely sized for stacking/constructing an indoor shooting arcade. Pigs will bounce back up with too much velocity or not auto reset without enough velocity, depending on distance. Scotch tape can be placed over magnets to help with reset. On 20 foot indoor range limit velocity 22/177 pellets to CO2/ break barrel pistols/revolvers or 3-4 pump rifles. Pigs will therefore not deform. Pellets may occasionally flatten/stick to pigs but occasional cooking spray eliminates issue.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    Wonderful inside fun and at this price no reason to delay.

    Things I liked:

    This target/trap is well made. I just got it a few days ago and have used it none stop.

    Things I would have changed:

    I think a caring handle on top would be nice.

    What others should know:

    The magnets for holding target down after they are hit is to strong. My fix was putting some painters tape on the back of each target. After putting the tape on them the center reset target works better. I know the magnetic bar might lose strength with time and the targets may not stay down as they should. As easy as putting tape on the back of the target was, it will peal off just as easy.

    Things I liked:

    I have had the Stampede since soon after it was offered. I have shot it with .177 pellets with the Walther Lever Action, the Umarex Lever Action and the Crosman 1077 rifles. My favorite pistols are 2 Colt SAA CO2 7 1/2 inch pelletrevolvers. They all work well for the target and have not caused damage for about the 2 years. I have not used any guns over .177. The target is light enough even for my 70+ year old arms to move it. I use it in my backyard and basement. It is great fun!

    Things I would have changed:

    Add a rounded handle to the top of the target to make it even easier to move. Make the paddles thicker to make them stronger. Again, I have had no damage, but I have been very careful.

    What others should know:

    Use furniture polish as recommended by one of the letter writers. It works and the pellets may stick without it. When they stick, it changes function.

    Things I would have changed:

    Would give it a higher rating but I have to improve my marksmanship in order for it to catch more of my pellets.

    What others should know:

    If you have the $$$ good investment otherwise you can make your own.

    Things I liked:

    Endless hours of fun sharpening my skills. I love the center reset so I can just keep on shooting. Keeps pellets from going all over the place.

    Things I would have changed:

    The animals (hogs based on how they look) do tend to bend somewhat easily. A bit thicker metal would help.

    What others should know:

    Easily disassembled and reassembled. After a full week of shooting, the targets needed to be hammered straight again. Minor inconvenience compared to the fun it provides.

    Things I liked:

    Trap worked great for me for both my .177 pistol and rifle at about 30 feet.

    Things I would have changed:

    It works, don't fix it.

    What others should know:

    The targets are made of soft steel they will dent ever so slightly but it does not hurt them. I assume the steel is soft to help prevent ricochet. Before you shoot at them be sure to wax the thoroughly so the pellets don't stick to them. I used Pledge but I guess any spray wax will do.

    Things I liked:

    Things I would have changed:

    Stronger thicker targets.

    What others should know:

    Well tried this target with my .22cal guns with the power dialed down at 20 yards. I need to take it apart and flatten the targets after one shot on each. This is not a target for anything over .177. With the .22 cal the targets won't stay down, because the force makes them bounce off the magnets. I had one pellet stick on one target.

    Things I liked:

    Fully assembled out of the box, sturdy construction, I use it for 10 Meter rifles and pistols as well as action pellt pistols at 20 feet. The construction is solid and it keeps the lead insie and easy to empty out with the cutout holes they have on the side.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing, the only issues I have heard are from folks who are probably over powering the trap. All of my rifles and guns I shoot at this with lead pellets are in the 350 FPS to 600 FPS rang and I have no issues at all, I also have the Sig Sauer pellet trap that is very similar, equally happy with that one too.

    What others should know:

    Lightly wax the metal surfaces of the targets with furniture polish or any wax really and the pellets won't stick, they will flatten and fall down into the trap.

    Things I liked:

    Lightweight but sturdy. A LOT of fun. Comes out of the box ready to use, no assembly.

    Things I would have changed:

    As other reviewers noted, you need to put a piece of tape over the magnets because they're too strong to allow the reset paddle to work. Also, there are spacers on the axle between the targets and they were too loose to allow the targets to fall consistency. The targets are able to twist deflecting enough energy to not drop, even with a direct hit. I fixed that by pushing all the spacers to the left and taking up the slack with a zip tie on the axle between the spacers and the target cabinet.

    What others should know:

    The target cabinet 'flips' a lot of pellets out of the front. They don't ricochet, but seem to twirl through the cabinet and drop just outside the target. I'd guess a good 20% fall out from 0-8'. If you're concerned about contaminating your lawn with lead, you'd probably want to put a tarp in front. Still, with a few small tweaks this is a great purchase.
