Dueling Tree Targets from Birchwood Casey

birchwood1

Birchwood Casey designs and manufactures some of the greatest steel targets – and targets in general – on the market. Whether you need something for your air rifle or are interested in some up-close-and-personal trigger time on steel plates with frangible ammo, they’ve got you covered. They recently expanded their line to include a couple new tree stands: Birchwood Casey Dueling Tree Targets.

The new Dueling Tree Targets are meant to give shooters a variety of feedback and interaction. First there’s the audible ping of your round slapping steel, then the visible sign as the target wavers and, hopefully, travels its complete path (whatever that may be). In the case of these new targets, that involves flipping around to the other side of the stand so it can be shot again. Each target stand features four paddles placed at even intervals along one side.

These targets are built on four legs for increased stability. There are not any springs or mechanisms used for resetting the plates themselves, which keeps maintenance to a bare minimum. And thanks to their heavy steel, the Dueling Tree Targets are quite literally built to last. Hard-sided cases are included for easier transportation. Orange or green Target Spots are also included.

Right now these are being offered in .22 rimfire and airgun versions. If you’re in the market for something a bit heavier-duty, Birchwood Casey has plenty other targets meeting that description as well.

The Dueling Tree Target Stand in .22 rimfire has an MSRP of $186.70 while the airgun version has an MSRP of $168.00. Take a look at the airgun version here and the .22 rimfire here.

    Heck, I can reload 9mm for $.12-$.13 each, what’s the point of shooting $.09-$.10 .22lr? Would like to see one of these in AR500 for centerfire pistol.

    Such a shame, I remember the days you could buy a $20 brick of .22lr and have a good afternoon or two for cheap. Thankfully the market for 9mm carbines is heating up to produce a new generation of plinking guns.

    I do not understand why Birchwood Casey refuses to introduce targets made for something besides rimfire.

    Make it in something capable of taking centerfire pistol calibers, and I’m in.
