Fantastic metal work. Great welds and clean up. No burrs or leftover sharp spots on the parts. Only reason for the 4 stars is I can’t really use it past 50 yards. Tried to shoot it at 100 yards but the brackets are a little heavy. I couldn’t see the targets move. Other than that, couldn’t ask for a better KYL target.
Wanted something for the back yard that I could use to practice for the NRL .22 and this was it. It is easy to set up and easy to take down. The targets swing really well on the setup Brad suggests. 5 stars and will be back for more targets.
Hey Brad, I LOVE your KYL target system!!
I did have it out to the range and worked just the way I wanted it to with 1 modification.
The little spacers you included, I replaced with EMT conduit cut to specific lengths to keep the targets at equally spaced intervals with just the right amount of slop to spin easily and not shift horizontally to much. I’d love to include a picture. Other than that I primed and painted the holders flat black and the target area white. It is a blast to shoot at 100 yds, got to be very precise for sure!!!
Great product & service
I have now used the Atlas Target Works KYL target and it was grand !
I really look forward to getting other people involved with this highly entertaining sport.
The box of parts were delivered on time. The product is well thought out and well made. Price is good considering all the aspects of producing this target.( Brad does not know this but I am the owner of a welding shop. ) When I say it's well thought out I mean it. I really like the idea that the individual targets are NOT attached to a pipe that slides onto the main pipe. Here the individual targets are 1/4" wide and do not bind on the main pipe as they swing around after being hit. Many KYL targets out there have the individual targets welded onto a 2" or 3" pipe. If there is any binding or sand or dirt between the pipes the "swing" will be significantly affected. On the Atlas design this will never be an issue. Hit the target and it WILL swing around. Very pleasing.
Brad also does not know that I am a CWB certified welding supervisor (Not tooting my horn here. Just showing I have welds and metals experience ) so when I say the Atlas KYL target is well made I mean it. No sharp edges. The welding is excellent. I see no reason that this target will not last a lifetime. On another note about lasting a long time I had a KYL target made for me and it was made out of mild steel. NOT a good idea. I was constantly bending the rods back so the targets would hang straight down. And it was 3" pipes slid over a main pipe with nothing to separate them. They did not swing like the Atlas KYL target does. Again the Atlas KYL target is better because of the design which does not use a hanging rod. The flat bar will never bend. Somebody used a 22 magnum on the mild steel KYL target at the range and now the individual targets had chunks of metal knocked off the edges. The fact that the targets now did not have the perfect round shape was annoying. Brad has chosen to use AR400 steel and this will last indefinitely. I h...
