Post subject:  micro dueling tree design

Is I had another go at building at designing a micro duelling tree for 10m target practice. I will be building a prototype this weekend and if all goes well i will be looking for a machinist to build a more sturdy/professional looking version. Essentially what trying to do is design with the following criteria. If anyone know a machinist or someone good with metal feel free to message me.

- safe and durable at 10m shooting sub pal 177 (no bounce back)

- modular in that targets can be switch for less experienced shooter or replaced if broken. maybe add some silhouette targets down the line

- compact, I would like to be able to have 6 targets in a 20" configuration that can be taken apart for transportation

- reliable, the duelling tree must work flawlessly at 10m. no boucebacks

My design will utilize a V shaped piece of metal with the inside edge lined with magnets. Rod will be positioned behind it to which the targets will be attached to and spaced out with spacers. If the target arms don't stick to the magnets, i can add additional magnets to them.

hey all. it,s a good idea if you do it right. I made a few small duelling tree targets. one with magnets and one without. they both work good but the one with no magnets works perfect. these pics are something similar to the one I made without magnets. I have some pics of my shooting gallery somewhere in this section. the ones with the x and o on the target are my latest one.. not very informative pics tho.

is your a lean? as in the v is angled. What problems do you have with the magnets?

hi all. the simple one I made with the magnets is just that simple. it,s a frame of wood with steel targets I made attached to hinges. the hinges are attached to a center piece of wood. I drilled little holes in the wood on each side of the frame and put those little magnets in them. hit the target and it bounces from one side to the other sticking to the magnet. it works good but those little rare earth magnets are strong. the other tree is just a v shaped piece of steel with steel targets I also cut. you just set them in the little pieces of piping attached to the v steel and when hit they flop side to side. that one works great. hard to see because I had to make the pics so small.
