go to www.metaltargets.com I am very happy with mine. You can also interchange the gongs. I have a 15" and will get an 8" soon.

If you can tell from photo, after being hit, the only thing done to target is the paint is chipped off. No dents or pocks. All you have to do is spray paint over it.

Could you show the bolt on clasp please?

The clasp goes around the horizontal metal bar. You have to lube the clasp and it swings pretty good.

Wlfdg,

I think it was around $38.

Re: Plate thickness?

I have a couple of their targets, the deer and yote and they are very good. Not cheap but once you have the target and IF you take care of it should last a very long time. No close shooting simple as that. Saw a .300 Win. shooting Trophy Bonded 180 go through the AR500 gong at 100 like it was cheese. We had been shooting it with 7mm mags with Ballistic Tips with no damage at that distance.
