In depth rundown of the Vital Zone Target:
The Vital Zone target is created from a USPSA sized C Zone plate. Then we cut out a TRUE A Zone center section and mounted a paddle behind the opening. There is a DISTINCT audible difference between an edge hit along the C Zone plate or a perfect shot placement within the A Zone. Fresh paint can also be used to perfectly tell where shots are landing. This system is specifically designed for departments and shooters looking to be able to better track shot placement without the need to replace paper targets constantly on a range with multiple shooters. This means faster, more efficient training which means more rounds down range with purpose.
The C Zone plate as well as the paddle are constructed from our legendary, ultra high quality 3/8″ AR550 steel. Due to the nature of the construction and brackets we ONLY offer this target in 3/8″ AR550 at this time. There are NO WELDS on this target plate whatsoever so the C Zone plate can be flipped and shot on the reverse side and the paddle can as well. This equates to double the life of the system. The lack of welds means the structural integrity of the system is retained and our customers get the absolute most value out of this system, PERIOD.
How is the Vital Zone attached to the post?
The Angle brackets are laser cut and CNC formed and feature 3 hole locations to adjust the forward lean of the system. Yes, this is 2.0 Spec. The Vital Zone can also be used with ALL of our A-DAP accessories because it shares the same 2.0 top bracket as our full line of A-DAP target systems. Yeah, that is epic.
