We chose to use industrial grade pillow block, greaseable bearings on this product, to give it an incredibly long life, and an incredibly long swing time! Shoot some grease in there a couple times a year, and these bearings should last indefinitely.

The other factors that makes our swinger different from Brand "X" (and Brand "Y", etc) are the adjustments on the pendulum shaft. The primary component operating this swinger is a 25 lb. counter weight. When you get this thing swinging by shooting the AR500 HexPlate™ trigger plate activator, it isn't going to stop any time soon... In other words, a shooter can't trip this target, shoot the other stationary targets, and shoot this one last after it has stopped, because it won't be stopped by then. Surprise!! In fact, this target will probably still be swinging 2 minutes later, so everyone has to shoot it on the move. 

MGM HexPlate™: MGM's exclusive HexPlate™ hexagonal shaped targets are made of premium MGM AR500 steel. The hexagonal shape offers up to 13% more target area than the same size round plate, and everyone will see the immediately recognizable MGM hex logo shape and know it as a genuine MGM Targets product, synonymous with quality, reliability and value.... Leave Nothing To Chance™.

The next feature related to the counter weight is it's adjustability. You can slide it up and down the counterweight shaft, which will to a degree vary the speed with which the target swings. It won't be an incredible difference, but it will be noticeable, and any variance increases the fun and challenge.

Yes, THERE'S MORE! A large "T" adjustment bolt enables you to have the target swing back and forth in the center, or you can cock it so it swings from the center, down to the left, or you can make it swing from the center, down to the right. No tools needed. More variety, challenge, and FUN!

Finally, let's paint a word picture. Assume you have the top of the target "head" at 5' tall. The center of our bearing pivot point is about 20" off the ground. If the target starts out in the horizontal position before it is "tripped" and it swings to it's maximum stroke (approximately 180 degrees opposite where it started from) the head is nearly 7' from where it started! You are never going to hit this target by accident! The stroke is long enough you can easily block part of the shooting area with "no shoots" or other vision barriers.

Can you see why we think this stuff is the best there is? Please don't forget about our warranty. If YOU don't think our equipment is as good as we say it is, call us, and we'll make you happy. Whatever it takes. We appreciate your business, and know that your satisfaction is the single most important factor in the growth of our business. Second place is "first loser". Your satisfaction is making us the #1 quality target manufacturer in the country.

Please note, the Swinger Target now comes with one activator plate as shown on left in picture.  You must buy your own 1"X2" inch wood furring strips from the local hardware store to complete the target and have a surface to staple your cardboard targets to as shown in the picture.

Add optional AR500 arms and AR500 plates or the clay pigeon holder arms for even more of a challenge... and fun!!  If you add the plates, you also get an additional 3/8" thick steel shield plate to protect the bearings from ever being hit by a stray bullet.
