Hill & Mac Gunworks’ Wireless Remote Falling Targets

DSC008062

Hill & Mac Gunworks had on display a very interesting and innovative electronic target system, featuring a wireless reset function. The system is powered by AA batteries, and is capable of rising from a falling position in about 1.5 seconds, as well as powered falling to keep shooters on their toes when engaging multiple targets on the range.

The system comes with a wireless remote which has a range of 2000 yards line of sight. Multiple targets can be programmed to a single controller, allowing a range operator to change target configurations depending on the training needs at the time.

The system has many accessories from the standard steel targets to the complete system with the wireless electronic controller add on. The electronic reset system will be available in the beginning of March and is compatible with the HMG targets a shooter may already own. TFB will be doing a full review in the near future.

The HMG targets come in both rifle and pistol versions. The pistol rated target system is 1/4 ” AR 500 and is rated to .44 Magnum and is safe to shoot at 10 yards. The rifle rated system is 1/2″ AR 500 and is rated to .338 Lapua Magnum and is safe to shoot at 25 yards. rifle target is expected to retail for $700.00 and $600.00 for the pistol version.

Phil Note: As anyone knows SHOT can be hectic and mistakes can happen. I’ve corrected the prices, posted the video the company made which really shows how the system works and works well. My apologies to the company and to our readers for the errors.

    For that price I think I’ll stick with paper.

    Um … I don’t get it. For a target that retails for a cool Grand, couldn’t at least one video presented from the Point-Of-View of the Shooter be included?

    And did I miss it, or is there a link to the manufacturer’s website? (I found one, and couldn’t find anything which seems to represent the thingie shown here.

    Oh well …. it’s The Shot Show, and apparently the manufacturer doesn’t want to include the details of the target on the internet until the show is over. I probably won’t come back to this, because among other things it probably won’t be an IPSC/USPSA legal target.

    Wish I had more info, though.
