I am using black pipe for the stand, the brackets make assembly and transport very easy. Using the hanger hooks definitely make the gong ringing louder than the other ways that I have used to hang gongs.
Highly recommend Atlas Target Works products
I recently purchased a couple of gong targets, stand kit, and a pair of 1x2 target bases. Everything was top notch and delivered to Vermont in 4 days. shot roughly 1500 rounds of mixed calibers at the two targets labor day weekend and I am thoroughly impressed. I will be ordering my steel targets from Brandon and Atlas exclusively in the future. Well done!
I have tried many different ways to hang my rifle targets but this is by far the best system I've found. It is quick and easy to set up and the plates ring louder so there is no doubt when you get a hit. The best part is the hooks are made from AR500 steel too so there is no more target repair compared to hitting a bolt and having to replace it while you're shooting. Highly recommended!
Fast service and great product.
This AR500 gong hanger kit is pure awesomeness!! If you enjoy shooting off steel chains or snapping rubber straps, then this kit is not for you. I like having the ability to put multiple hooks on one pipe. I can create a simulated plate rack, a "know your limits" set-up, or large targets that require multiple hangers. So far it has survived hundreds of rounds of 6.5CM, 308, and 223. Very happy with this purchase!!
