LaRue Tactical Sniper Target TG1
LaRue Targets are made of the highest quality materials and are produced on
computer numerically controlled (CNC) machinery that gives consistent high
The overall dimensions are 28 inches high, 32 inches wide and is made of 3/8 inch steel plate that is hardened to 500 Brinell. Silhouette plates are rated to accommodate 7.62mm NATO, but have been shot with .300 Winchester Magnum at ranges as close as 200 meters without ill effect.
LaRue targets are battery powered and will cycle through approximately 1,800 down and up cycles before requiring a recharge. After being hit, the target returns to the upright position and automatically shuts off until the silhouette is again hit and knocked down. This is the primary reason for the systems long battery life. It also precludes having to turn the targets off and on, although there is a master on/off switch.
The targets are weatherproof and can be left out without damage. Users have reported leaving LaRue targets exposed to the weather over a year's time without affecting their operation. LaRue Tactical stands behind the quality of its targets and will repair or replace any target that is found to be defective.
Some of the main advantages over traditional targets are:
Battery Powered. Automatically resets 1800 times between charges.
Man Portable. 72 lbs total weight.
Self Contained. No assembly required, no set-up, no hoses, no wires!
Battle Tough. 3/8" thick 500 Brinnell target. Withstands .223s and .308s.
Weatherproof. Leave LaRue Targets out year-round.

"I did not purchase one, but have used them in Afghanistan. Half the time the wind was so strong we could no longer use 2x4s and pallets, so we would break these out. Awesome for quick target transition training and can take a beating. Its been shot a few thousand times with little ill effect (mostly 5.56). For more advanced weapons training the reset is a good feature, while slowish, beats the crap out of calling a cease fire for everyone and walk down range to fix your target for whatever reason." -U.S. Army Infantry
