The MGM Spinner has 8″ and 10″ MGM Hex HEXALLOY 550 target plates. We made them this way so one is heavier than the other which makes a great experiment with gravity. Of course, the heavier one offsets the balance. The object defeating the Spinner is to get it to rotate completely around in the fewest number of shots. When you shoot the bottom target the top target moves toward you. If you shoot the top target as it begins to swing away from you, it gets more momentum.
We think it’s a pretty simple concept but you’d be surprised. We’ve seen this target eat some peoples lunch. We linked a couple of videos below that will really help you master this little target.
The hardened HEXALLOY 550 targets mount to a 3/8″ steel bracket and rotate on a lubrication zerk fitted machined hub and shaft. The focus you’ll need to get this target spun is what makes it such a great tool. You have to hit the target every time AND you have to hit it at the RIGHT time. And if you only shoot the bottom target it takes forever to get the full rotation.
Great for pistol, but it is just as much fun with bird shot, OO Buck, or your rifle. With a .223, a 30 round mag, and 100 yards, you’ve got your work cut out for you, guaranteed. Challenge your long range rifle skills with this target at 300+ yards. Great for training all levels of shooters – beginners to elite LE, military or competitive shooters. This one gets it done!
Once you’ve got this one all dialed in and are crushing it, check out our Double Spinner for even more good fun!! Another fun thing to do is shoot it with a .22. Better bring your A game! Here’s proof it can be done!!

Quality construction and a lot of fun!

I lost the leg brackets for my spinner. I called and Steve Kuhl got me new ones sent out. I recently moved and accidentally gave a bad address. Steve called me and insisted in paying for the shipping even though I made the mistake. Superior customer service!

I hate this target. It’s well built and reliable. Just a pain in the ass to shoot. Especially at 100 yards in high winds. Did I say how much I hate this target? But it does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Get your hits when you’re supposed to and it will work just fine. Start missing, not so much.

Three reasons to choose MGM:
1) the targets are significantly tougher than most, if not all, competitors. I’ve shot in countless matches over the last 15 years, on numerous companies targets. MGM targets are just tougher and last longer than the others.
2) No target company has done more for the shooting sports, or the Military, than MGM.
3) the Gibson Family are fantastic people.
If these things are important to you ..look no further.

One of my favorite targets, it is a blast for practicing pistol transitions but is also a TON of fun to shoot from far away with a rifle.
We once put this target at 500 yards for a rifle match and being able to time it properly was both a challenge and a ton of fun.

I am with Chuck on this thing! I hate it, but I love it! If you are going to torture yourself with “working” with a spinner, you owe it to yourself to do it right and do it once and BUY one from MGM!

The Spinner gives me another challenge I enjoy. It requires accuracy, speed and target transition to be successful. Watching the videos on line, it looks easy, ITS NOT. The quality of this target will give me years of service

Absolutely the funnest target I own. Guy I met at the range had one, let me try it out and loved it. Had to have one for myself. Great quality and very fast shipping( took less than a week). Will definitely be purchasing more targets from MGM.
