Things I liked:

Better than I expected. Works the way it should. Very happy with it.

Things I would have changed:

I'd prefer if it was made so that the legs could lock into place. I epoxied them because I won't need to knock it down flat. Wish it came with more target stickers.

By Alfred from USA on 2016-11-20 07:41:20

Things I liked:

Handy, and pretty well made, other wise, there isn't much I like.

Things I would have changed:

The supporting legs should be able to lock in place, to keep the target from falling over. The targets don't flip up and stay there, otherwise it's just OK.

What others should know:

This is an OK target, but I think there are other's that do a better job. I personally like the Splatterburst over this.

    Things I would have changed:

    Thicker Steel

    What others should know:

    Make sure the target is leaning forward so the bottom targets don't bounce off when you hit them.

    Things I liked:

    Things I would have changed:

    Orange target stickers didn't last one day of shooting.

    What others should know:

    Don't buy this for low velocity pistols, the targets are 1/4 steel and too heavy to flip up. The description is misleading about .177 caliber only. I would say its only suited for .22 caliber rifles.

    Purchase order No. 6905712 dispatched with guide number 1ZY3Y419YW90458868 with a transported weight of 2.9 LB only contained this item. the other 4 metal targets were never dispatched. I have called the piramydair phone but I do not speak English and I do not understand the automatic answering machine. I need you to give me the 4 items that I paid and they never gave them to me.

    Things I liked:

    Folds flat, tuff enough to take full power hits from my Gladius .25,

    Things I would have changed:

    Something to stabilize the reset bar, targets sometimes fall though the reset due to hard pellet strikes.

    What others should know:

    Expect to mess around with it a bit till you find a way to set it up just right, short learning curve though.

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    It's a very solid steel Target. Good construction and heavy duty. It even takes hits from .22 rimfire and no damage.

    Things I would have changed:

    Like other reviews say it was too heavy for .177 at 500-700fps like my Winchester M14. No pellets would flip the targets up. I used .22 rimfire both Aguila 20gr Super Colibri (500fps) and .22 shorts (700 fps) and it and worked perfect. I would say it a great value for the money since it clearly can take rimfire ammo too!

    What others should know:

    It's still fun to go ping ping with lighet slower pellets even if it doesn't flip like it's supposed to without using .22 pellets or rimfire.

    Things I liked:

    Well made and finished

    Things I would have changed:

    Needs to be able to sit a little higher off the ground. Long legs would be my preference.

    What others should know:

    Have only been using the target for one week. Right now am using it in 25-40 degree temperatures: The orange paper stick on targets are regularly blown off the metal after 2-4 strikes. (Not good) At 25 yds I as yet cannot get the metal targets to swing and stay in the up position. Though still useful for target shooting with my med and magnum .177 air rifles, this device will need more tweaking (than I thought) if it is to perform as advertised. Wish me luck.

  • 3.0 3.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    I like that the thing is solidly made_ ain't gonna break any time soon. Read below for why overall 3-stars.

    Things I would have changed:

    'Gamo' calls this "Birchwood Casey Gallery Resetting Airgun Target" AND "Birchwood Casey Gallery Resetting .22 rim-fire Target". Both are THE SAME item. I can not find separate versions. I have a buddy that uses this for his sighting-in of his .22 rifles (powder), and it works GREAT, but for use with his .177 air rifles, he has to be WAY closer than 50 feet for it to do the reset thing. It works for him ONLY due to his being a true MARKSMAN. Someone like ME that rarely hits dead center, the .177 ammo will not flip the target up & over. Made of HEAVY GAUGE STEEL, while it does OKAY with my .22 Crosman pump-up pistols... four to five pumps is adequate for around 20 feet... the thing is NOT good for .177 pellets OR BBs. There is just NOT enough mass to make the target work well using .177 ammo @ < around 500fps_ this is a guesstimate. I truly believe it is FALSE advertising for 'Gamo' saying this is suitable for airgun use, as a TON of us are using mostly .177 ammo @ <500fps.

    What others should know:

    Yup. The 'Gamo' re-settable target with the silver targets within the green metal box, that has the BIG SQUARE CENTER target for resetting the four smaller round ones, two on either side of the middle one?_ that is a GREAT buy from 'Pyramyd Air', and the damn thing WORKS!!! I think it is called the "Rocker Target Gallery" by 'Gamo', but I think 'Pyramyd' calls it the 'Gamo Rocker Pellet Trap, Reset w/Center Paddle'. All I know is it works GREAT! But do NOT use for hi-power guns... not more than around 700fps or less! And try to use only for .177, unless you are good at keeping the .22 pump-ups low. NO BREAK BARRELS ALLOWED!

    Things I liked:

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing

    What others should know:

    Even though i have not actually used this product, the construction seems to be of good quality, it took me a bit to understand how this thing operates, the metal targets seem to swing or move without any binding up or getting stuck, it seems it stands without any problems also, easy set up and carry.

    Things I liked:

    works exactly as described. great plinker

    Things I would have changed:

    taller arms to get the thing up and out of out of the grass. I am going to use some steel rods and tack weld this to so that its up out of the dirt.

    What others should know:

    other than the short arms, it works perfect. the stickers were blown off on the first hit but I just keep spray painting the targets orange and it works great.

    What others should know:

    Make sure you set the legs facing the shooter so the gravity will help .

  • 4.0 4.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    It's sturdy and heavy so it doesn't move around. If you dig it in a little it won't move at all. I've shot at it with my Sumatra at 10-30 years and no damage or movement occurred. The targets flipped like they supposed to.

    Things I would have changed:

    Slightly bigger for greater distances. Instead of stickers, use different paint colors. Make the legs slight longer to be able to dig them in a little but still maintain height. For those of us who don't have nice clear backyards to place them, we need them tall enough to stand higher than the grass. But still good "bush" target practice.

    What others should know:

    They are smaller than they appear but still great. They work well at longer distances if you have a scooped rifle and the size make it more challenging. Don't be a noob and use a BB gun, the instructions on those clearly state not to shoot hard objects, which these are. You'll just end up hurting someone. They are for serious rifles that use lead and carry a good amount of power. I would say 700fps or higher and not with super light alloy pallets. I would almost suggest only using a 22 cal and above if you want to do long distance shooting.

    Things I liked:

    Well made of heavy duty steel and after about a 100 shots down range no visible damage to the impact area of the paddles using both .177 and .22 airguns with heavy lead pellets.

    Things I would have changed:

    Longer legs as if you just put the target on the ground in high grass the paddles are stopped from swinging freely.

    What others should know:

    Impact from a either a .177 or more so from a .22 airgun does make the target jump around impeding the ability of the paddles to swing over and rest on the top bar prior to resetting. I got a flat piece of 3/4" scrap wood, drilled holes at an angle for the rear legs which holds the target and keeps it from jumping around. Also shoot the two inner paddles first then the two on the sides so all come to rest on the top bar and stay there prior to resetting. Paint the impact area of the paddles with white spray paint and get 1 1/2" stick on B/C orange target stickers or "C-More" black target stickers when the needed.

    Things I liked:

    I bought 4 of these metal targets to use outside. I set them up at different distances. The quality is first class and they can take a shot from a Marauder Pistol (700 FPS) or Marauder Rifle (1000 FPS) without denting the plates. I used to compete in big bore pistol IHMSA shooting metal animal targets. This has the same excitement. The thrill is that you and others can see instantly if you hit your target. There is a metal clang and the target plate flips up and over and is out of sight until the release plate is shot which then resets all of the hit plates. Very ingenious and it works great. I think for the $19.95 price, it is an outstanding value.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like to have seen a metal brace to help strengthen the legs. But, that would have made it more expensive. It works fine the way it is.

    What others should know:

    Only one of my lower powered CO2 pistols would flip the plates over. That was the Desert Eagle, which seems to have more power than my other Umarex pistols. It is still fun to shoot with the others because a hit sends the plate swinging and it is obvious that it is hit. A shot from my Marauder Pistol slaps the plate up and over in a very decisive way. Shooting these plates is very addicting and will give you hours of fun and enjoyment. Keep some black spray paint and extra Birchwood Casey 1 1/2" stickers handy to keep your gallery resetting airgun target looking new. If you run out of stickers, just spray paint the round part of the plate with yellow or orange paint. Always use safety glasses when shooting these targets because the pellets are smashed into many small fragments when shot with higher powered airguns. Shots from lower powered CO2 pistols will turn the pellets into thin discs.
