Dominion Outdoors AR500 steel targets are made of high quality AR500 rated steel and come in either 3/8” or 1/2” thicknesses. The targets are properly cut with a laser to preserve strength on the edges and are cut with holes for 9/16 or 1/2" carriage or standard bolts. We have targets available in many different shapes & sizes, in these two thicknesses.
We also offer a simple and affordable target stand solution utilizing readily available 1" conduit from your local hardware store. Simply purchase the AR500 Target Stand and Hook kit and assemble with 1" conduit pieces for a sturdy, easy to transport target stand.
