  • Made in USA


AR500 12″ Colt Speed Popper is an auto popper designed to work with rifles up to 7.62×39 and 300BLK at 100 yards.. Target flips back and is automatically reset by a spring. They were not designed to be shot with handguns as the base can direct bullet splash back at the shooter. Minimum shooting distance is 75 yards for rifles and handguns.

The target is 12″ tall with a 6″ circle. The target includes holes to fasten the legs onto the target system which will raise the target off the ground a full 6″. These holes also work perfectly to stake the base to the ground if you choose to not use the legs. The base is constructed of hardened steel much like the target. During our testing of the competition, we found that some used mild steel bases. The bullets splash will quickly cut through these cheaper target bases, so do not confuse these with some of the cheaper reactive targets.

Rifles over 3000 fps muzzle velocity should be used at 200 yards or greater to prevent damage to the target.  Max impact energy 1500ft.lbs.
