Steel popper targets are very popular with centerfire pistol and rifle shooters. They are used both for fun and for competition. Now shooters who enjoy shooting .22 rimfire pistols and rifles have a popper target designed for them.
The new Birchwood Casey® Rimfire Popper Target looks and works just like heavier, larger popper targets designed for centerfire ammunition. The target is designed for .22 rimfire ammunition with softnose bullets. When shot, the popper target falls backward and then immediately springs back up to the shooting position ready for the next shot. There is no manual reset required, just keep shooting.
Not only will it be fun and popular for those who like to shoot .22 pistols and rifles, it provides a low-cost option to shooters who normally shoot centerfire guns. Those shooters can now practice with the much less expensive rimfire rounds on a target that reacts the same way as the poppers they shoot with their bigger guns.
The .22 Rimfire Popper Target has a four-inch paddle that sits on a base. The base has holes drilled in it to accommodate two ground stakes that are included with the target. It is a quick and easy set up taking only a few moments to get ready to shoot.
Suggested retail price is $20.90.
