If your Whirly Gig doesn’t offer enough of a challenge, you NEED the
We took a Whirly Gig (Texas Star), flipped it over and hung it from steel brackets on a wooden frame. You with me so far? The trigger post holds the target up to the side and when the cord is pulled by a volunteer or another falling target it gets real, real fast with the whole thing swinging left to right while you try to hit the five 8-inch HEXALLOY 550 target plates!!
Order it to upgrade your whirly gig or order the Death Star and a Whirly Gig (sold separately) and take your training and fun to a whole new level!!
You supply the wood, we supply the steel. 4″X4″ for the four legs, 4″X6″ for the cross beam. MGM Whirly Gig sold separately.
With 3/8″ HEXALLOY 550 Brinell steel for nearly all the “shootable” components, we were also able to simplify the target holding system. The .015″ kerf from the laser cutter wasn’t quite tight enough to hold the target in place when you wanted it to be held, but it was perfect when it came to releasing the target. To solve the problem, we added a single steel spring to the existing bolts. To set up for the next shooter, all you have to do is slide the target under the spring and it will easily fall into the “keyhole” that holds it.
Please note, the Death Star Kit uses the Whirly Gig target, which has been updated to the new ultra sweet Hexagon target plates, new pictures forthcoming soon…
