Just received a new target from my loving wife. Apparently I've been a good boy as of late!?

I had seen these online a while back and had commented on how I would like to try one out someday. I couldn't find them available anywhere in North America as they are made in Russia. Well I guess she found them and placed an online order.

It's full steel construction with the zombies in the windows that flip up when hit. The center bottom zombie is the reset target to drop them all back down. It even comes with an led light mounted inside for low light or shooting in the dark to backlight the zombie silhouettes. Very cool.

The Russian instructions state that its rated for up to 1000fps with pellets at a minimum of 18 feet. I'm not sure I would shoot it with that much energy unless I was a little further out personally as the zombies are 3mm steel, not sure the metal quality yet until I test it but it seems very well made.

I included a photo from the top to show how they've set it up to function. I like that it doesn't rely on magnets to function as in my experience magnetic targets can be hit or miss sometimes (no pun intended).

These aren't cheap so I'm hoping it holds up well.

I'll report back once I've had some shooting time with it.

I like that a lot. Wish someone over here would make something like it.
Let us know how if it's as much fun as it looks.

First impressions after a quick shooting session with the target... excellent!
Worked flawlessly, targets get knocked back and are reset using the middle zombie. A shot slightly of the mark will only knock the zombie down some of the time, so I find it's level of "sensitivity" to be perfect.
Using my FAS shooting only at about 330fps I was still able to knock the targets down without any issue. I'll try a slightly higher powered gun to ensure the targets aren't deformed or broken at all when hit. I'm still pretty confident in the quality of construction that I don't think there will be any problems.
This thing is a lot of fun.
