What makes the A-DAP family of targets so special?

The C Zone steel target A-DAP system features nearly 45 degrees of forward lean. The target plate will also move when struck. Couple these two traits together and you have a system that sends fragmentation to the ground, not at your face. No other system is as versatile as the A-DAP family of steel targets. This .394″ Thick plate was special purchased by our team to offer a limited run of C Zone’s from this material. This material will be a slight increase in strength over 3/8″ without the weight increase of 1/2″ AR550. We have a LIMITED amount of these available at a discount.

Why Choose the C Zone A-DAP system over others?

The C Zone Steel target is a classic shape and size and our A-DAP design is EXTREMELY audible when struck. Our C Zone target can easily be heard over 1000 yards in good conditions. The C Zone shape and size is also a very commonly accepted size among trainers and departments, so it is widely used and accepted. The Aggressive forward lean and movement of our A-DAP family of targets creates the safest, loudest, most reliable targets on the market.

  • We see your team shooting these targets much closer than recommended? Can we shoot closer? 
    • Answer: Negative. Much of what we do is substantial abuse testing for QC and R&D of new and existing systems. Always follow our recommended distances for training. While shooting closer often does not pose a safety threat, it is harder on the systems. Users will potentially increase wear and tear with leads to unsafe targets when misused.
  • Does this system feature adjustable lean angles? 
    • Answer: Yes. Our CNC formed brackets offer several levels of lean. The steepest setting (bottom hole) allows nearly 45 degrees of forward lean.
  • Does this system work with my current hostage assembly? 
    • Answer: YES! The Mini A-DAP works with ALL A-DAP system accessories, including the hostage, armored posts, arachnid base.
  • Is this system covered under your warranty?
    • Answer: Yes! Any of our .394″ AR550 systems have a 1 year strike plate warranty. If something cracks or breaks prematurely, we’ll replace it so long as it was used properly.

  • I already have a base and A-DAP top bracket or armored post, can I buy the C Zone A-DAP target plate separately? 
    • Answer: No. This limited run C Zone is ONLY Available as a complete system.
  • Where are these products produced? 
    • Answer: We produce our products in Lancaster County PA. We oversee every step of the process, QC, production, packaging, and shipping. From start to finish, TA Targets is manufacturing high quality systems for hard use. Our owners own the machinery, facility, equipment, etc. We have invested heavily in newer specialty equipment to further streamline our processes and increase quality even further.
  • Is the Armor Plating on the targets US material?
    • Answer: No. The “armor” we use for the strike plates (actual target impact plates) is made from a proprietary material that is manufactured in Sweden. this is the best material we have found in the world. We were largely dissatisfied with the QC of American made strike plates and had too many issues with quality control. Eventually we hope a US manufacturer creates a material that is as available and as stringent as our Swedish plate. For now, this is the best material to service our customers. US Manufactured AR500 and AR550 is used in areas that are NOT main strike plates. Some examples of this are the Rifle Dueling Tree Shields, Plate Rack Shields, Arachnid front shield and hostage brackets.
  • Where does the rest of the steel come from?
    • Answer: Traditionally all other steel used in our systems is US origin. During the “covid pandemic” the supply chain has experienced extreme pressures. Under some circumstances some of our tube steel and angle had to be purchased from Canadian raw materials. We do our absolute best to minimize this, not because of quality concerns, but because we deeply desire to produce our products from US steel. We will not use Chinese steel plate, angles, or tubes. Rest assured.
