I will be 3D printing some of the WFTF certified target checkers; calibrated simulate the impact of 12FPE (muzzle energy) pellet striking at 55yds, these are ew the new worldwide standard for target verification. I have had a few people ask about this now and I am in the middle of testing to see how long they will take to make and what the cost will be to produce them.
I have to source some of the other components, as well as determine shipping cost, assembly, testing and calibrating. I am not sure at this point, but I am guessing they will end up somewhere around the $60 mark, they are $76.18+UKshipping to buy from Brian, but you cannot buy them as they are out of stock and priority of sale is being given to WFTF certified marshals until they are dispersed worldwide.

Please let me know if you are interested so I can gauge how many of them I will need, so far I believe I have;
Tom P - x1
Dean L - x1
Sean M - x2
Tim M - x1
Ray A - x1

***I will update this list as I receive requests***

Quite the bargain considering how much time is involved to produce the final product.

They are to confirm the target goes down with the proper force; a way to ensure a target is not faulty if someone splits a pellet and thinks they definitely hit the kill zone.

I have done the testing and have a working prototype in hand and I have ordered enough material to make a batch of 10 testers, this leaves 2 remaining as of right now. I can make more based on demand, but it is cheaper to bigger batches of them.

After going over the prices of everything I will be able to do them for $65 each+shipping

Colours in the pictures below are just for testing, the production units will be the same colour scheme as the original; black, red, silver.
See this thread for pics http://www.ftcentral.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1111

Yeah that is Brian Samson the head of WFTF Marshaling and designer of these testers, he also does the WFTF Marshal Certification courses which was a great learning experience, with the goal standardizing marshaling execution around the world. He is also one of the top FT shooters in the world

I will be starting to assemble testers this weekend, I just need to get Combro Chrony for calibration (anyone have one for sale or rent?) and I am also waiting on trigger return springs, which I may just source locally to save time.

I will be shipping them as they are completed, if you would like me hold onto the tester until the next FT match please let me know.
