Hill & Mac Gunworks’ Wireless Remote Falling Targets

    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.

    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.
