Airsoft home made plate rack targets

my home made plate rack targets, 6x 2'' diameters galvanized plates,

made from cap that is used for electrical box (found at rona).

They do not deform!, but the main problem, this plate rack don't keep the bb's inside...

That's pretty good. I'm sure the people that organize CAPS can shed some light.

Really nice!

For your BB problem, try putting some sand in the bottom.

Aside ffom sand if the box was a lil bit deeper behind the targets and had an angle to it that would help with catching bb's for you.


Open front > [ \ <angle back say 30-45
Look very cool could u post a DIY for that I think id like to build one.

Hey, thanks for the comments!
actually there is a little angle on the back, some stay trapped in the bottom,
the main difficult when shooting at this little plates is that you need to shoot them pretty centered to make them flipped, if shoot on sides or too high, seams to not have enough energy to flip them. This worked too with my little boys crosman 1911 springer airsoft pistol that are rated at+/- 300fps... haven't try it yet with my KJW M4!... I think I will put some ductseal in the back.

thx for your interest!,
I tooked some scrap parts of wood I have on my hand in my garage, so I am not tooled to make them in series! haha. The worst part to do is the plates itself!, I cut them with Wiss Scisors by hand directly into the electrical plates, painfull!!! and finished them with grinder... that's why they are not perfectly round... lasez cut would be nice!!

I can put the CAD plan here if some interrested., this is really compact! not for long distance shooting with a pistol, I shoot them in the video from about 15-17 feets

If you could use a smaller support shaft with two bearings on the plate, you would remove the problem caused by shooting off-center.
But that is a bit extreme. I guess that above 350 it will not make a difference.

Totally awesome! I made a 4-plate rack out of 4" electrical covers, but this is way better! I never saw the plates you're using, do you still have the SKU#?

hahaha!, I am using the exact same plate as you!, I only cut them smaller with a 2'' round paper pattern, cut by hand with scisor wiss and finish them on the grinder, that's why they are not perfectly round, this hurt the hand to cut that!!!

LOL you got me.

Using those tin snips on electrical covers must be a PITA. I have a nibbler, does an OK job but is pretty slow. My forearm was sore after just one target...

Thanks for the explanation, I thought you found a 'magic' cover that I've missed.

unfortunatly, I had to cut it myself instead of finding one already made!

and it was not a PITA to cut it but a PITH, lol!!! (Hand) you have to go to the Gym before ;-))
