Adjustable Armored Post


Lead Time on this product: 1 - 10 Business Days Typically


That awkward moment when you unload your firearm downrange just to see the smoke clear revealing your target plate and head-bracket are both taking a nap on the ground out of sheer boredom, a splintered 2X4 like an erect middle finger behind them just taunting you. Wood is great. 2X4’s are plentiful. But sometimes… you just need something better, something more permanent.

The Adjustable Armored Post keeps your targets in action longer

No longer do you need to be concerned with the condition of your 2×4 post. Grab an armored post and forget about the maintenance of 2×4’s.

Prepared Citizens should focus more on training, less on target maintenance.

Keeping your targets in action and spending less time on maintenance means you are more focused on your shooting skills. We want our customers to be spending time on what matters the most: becoming well trained defenders of life. The Adjustable armored post is for ANYONE who desires to “Set it and forget it”.

Add an Adjustable Armored Post to your target system to get the most out of your range days. **Choose the Goliath option ONLY if you have a Goliath WITH A 26″ base or Breakdown base and extension. If using a Goliath system or ANY other A-DAP system with a standard Breakdown Base, select the standard A-DAP armored post.**


Adjustable Armored Post

The Adjustable Armored Post is our third generation of armored posts. In previous years, our armored posts were a solid welded unit that was available in three different heights. We took a proven concept and developed it into an even more versatile package.

The New Adjustable Post offers more durability and more versatility.

Versatility and portability were our key areas of focus with this new armored post. The adjustable design affords 3 different heigh settings for the end user. This allows our customers to fine tune the post for their needs. A side benefit of the adjustable design is more efficiency during production. This means less waste. Less waste means lower price. Lower price: Happier YOU.

Frequently Asked Questions

1.) Who Should Consider the Adjustable Armored Post?
  • Anyone looking to spend more time shooting and less time replacing 2X4 boards. We used to market these posts mostly to high volume ranges, but we have found that ALL shooters benefit from running armored posts.
2.) Will these armored posts work with my older A-DAP systems?
  • Yes! These are backwards compatible. These will work with C Zone, Mini A-DAP, Mini Vital, and Vital Zone Targets. They will also work for our MOD 1 Bullet Trap. Our Goliath can even use these when used with the 20″ base, Arachnid, or…future bases that are coming. NOT recommended when using the Goliath and 26″ base for calibers like 50 BMG.
3.) What tools are needed to assemble?
  • Users should have a 3/4″ Open end wrench and a 3/8″ drive ratchet and 3/4″ Deep socket. Or just use two 3/4″ open end wrenches. The nuts included are lock nuts, so they will go on snug.
4.) Is using an armored post safe?
  • Yes! Stray fragmentation from bullet plate impacts will not affect the armored posts. Users should note: the armored post is NOT a target and is NOT designed to be used for direct impacts. It IS possible to introduce wear and tear to the post from direct blows with high velocity rounds.
5.) What distance can I use the armored post at?
  • For most rifle calibers we would recommend 50 yards. For pistols: 10 yards.
6.) What is the country of Manufacture?
  • We manufacture these right here in SE PA. The material we use, like our target plates, is sourced from Sweden. The swedes know a thing or two about armor, and this plate is the absolute best plate we have found in the world. PERIOD. We order direct from the mill to our own specs, then cut, form, weld, and finish here in Lancaster County PA. Our blood sweat and tears are poured into these products so you have the best performing, safest targets available.
7.) Does this product fall under Prop. 65 warnings?
  • Maybe. Just in case, be sure not to eat the paint or lick the target before or after you’ve shot it. If you are just curious, led tastes horrible and will probably cause mental damage. If you have done it once you are likely to do it again. Handle at your own risk, if you choose, you may wear an industry grade hazmat suit and gas mask with a HEPA filter and good luck charm on your wrist.
