Default "Do-It-Yourself" Dueling Tree Target Kit! AR500 PLATE!!

I have received several PM's about dueling trees. Though I do not assemble/ship dueling tree targets because they are large and heavy (very expensive to ship), I do offer a kit for the "do-it-yourselfer". This is a Target Man ORIGINAL!

Your dueling tree is extremely easy to make with the use of my kit. Simply fabricate a simple base, use 1.5" angle iron for the riser, and weld on the pivot tubes. Insert the paddles in to the pivot tubes and you have a nice kit for 1/3 the cost of most manufacturers.

This kit comes with 6 paddles and 6 tubes. Each paddle is 5" in diameter. You supply the angle iron and base material!

***Recommendation: Use 1/4" angle iron (1.5" angle). When welding on the riser, always have the top of the riser slightly leaned towards the shooter (approx 10-15 degrees). This will ensure the paddles positively stay to the left or right side during your duel and they will NOT get stuck. It also helps deflect frag toward the ground.

I sell these online for $129.99. I am offering (exclusively through Calguns) them here for $110. That is the price TO YOUR DOOR. Remember, this is coming from AZ, so sales tax does not apply! If you would like to make this an 8 target kit, figure $150 to your door!

Here are some of the pics. Let me know what you think. If you are interested, shoot me a PM and I will send you out an invoice.

Thanks!!!







Below is a customers DIY tree he made... He made the riser adjustable. Price nice design...

Yes, it is 3/8" AR500. Perfect for any high caliber centerfile rifle. I will also soon be making some 1/4" mild steel paddles, which will hold up pretty well for most light caliber pistols.

Already sold a couple here on the forum. Thanks for your interest.

Great idea!
You could also angle cut the tubes and you wont have to lean the tree!

I have tried this and though in theory it sounds like it will work really good, I have found it best to still lean the tree. Leaning also has one other great advantage, which is the deflect the frag downward. Usually when we shoot at the tree a lot, you can almost see a perfectly straight line of frag on the floor at the base of the tree.

Cutting the tubes at an angle does work, but I have also noticed that after some hits of the paddles, there was not enough inertia to get the paddle to climb over the angle and drop back down. Usually not a real issue, but we have experienced this more with the angled version.

Thanks again for the orders guys!
