  • 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 3/8″ 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. We take immense pride in how we treat and stand by customers. This system is absolutely no different. You are purchasing the highest quality systems from us and they will perform as such. 1/2″ AR550 systems feature our lifetime warranty. For FULL details please see our warranty page on the site.
  • 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: Yes. Go into our “individual products” section of the website.
  • 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.

    Just bought my second

    I was so impressed with my first I had to order a second. A third will not be far behind.

  2. Paladin Center

    Great products and service

    We needed new steel targets for a training session. TACTICAL AR500 TARGETS has amazing customer service. They expedited our order without any hassle.

    The targets are excellent quality. We will be ordering more very soon.

  3. Eric

  4. Sam Lemon

    Magnum A-DAP system, (C zone)

    Great targets, well designed, easy to setup.

  5. Mike

    C Zone A-DAP

    Best Quality targets on the market! Fantastic customer service and lighting fast delivery….I had my targets in less than 36 hours from order date to arrival at my door.

    Targets, Hardware, and Base system make it easy to transport, quick to set up and simple to breakdown. Durable enough to live outside year round, yet convenient and compact enough to keep in your garage/shed or vehicle and transport to your favorite shooting grounds each weekend.

    Highly recommend the 1/2″ AR550 steel and the Arachnid Base. The range area at my farm is slightly sloped, so having the ability to press the feet of the Arachnid

    C dap setup

    Super quality, well made, sturdy. I used my C dap setup on uneven ground. When making hits the plate would swing but at no time was the setup in danger of falling over. That tells me the C dap set is well balanced and on flat ground there is plenty leeway so that the set up does not fall over. This was important for me. I would definitely recommend and buy again!

    Customer For Life!

    This was the first target i had ever purchased from TAT. After watching Paul aka BlackIron Gunner rave about these and them as a company i had to try. I couldn’t be any more happy with their quality, style, and reliability. Defiantly made me a customer for life! One other thing that in my opinion is more important than any is the Company as a whole is customer service, 2a advocates and morals. Great Job guys and i hope to see you all continue to grow as well as make a difference in our community!!!!!!
