Our ingenious 22 Rimfire Auto-Popper® – Various Shapes also comes in a lighter weight version for use with .22 caliber rimfire firearms. This target is designed the same as our standard Auto-Popper®, but has a lightweight spring that allows the target to react to the .22 bullet. The auto-resetting target itself is 1/4″ AR400 steel. The .22 Auto-Popper® is available in the standard Pepper Popper shape, Colt Speed Plate shape and a ground squirrel shape. These targets are great for responsible kids of all ages. Here’s a video we did of one being shot with .22 pistol and rifle at about 15y.

I’m very happy with the the 22 Rimfire Auto-Popper. It automatically comes with Sniper Legs to improve stability. The target falls and automatically pops back up with ease. I took one shot at the target with a 9mm handgun from 15 yards just to see what happens. The target fell over backward as it isn’t rated for anything larger than .22LR. The 9mm round barely made a mark on the AR400 steel which speaks to MGM Targets build quality. I’m confident this target will hold up for years to come.

Glad you like it and it’s working well for you! Sounds like the AR plate held up well to the experimental 9mm round as well!
