7×14 Hostage T Post Target System
AR500 Silhouette Target – 7×14 x 3/8″
Every good 7×14 hostage t post target system starts with having the right steel. AR500 steel and better is the gold standard in target shooting. All of our AR500 gong targets are CNC laser cut giving you the hardest edges. Moreover; with laser cutting, you will also get a cleaner smoother cut. This allows us to put 1/2″ square mounting holes in the gong target so you can use a safe round head carriage bolt to mount your target. Many target companies use the cheaper CNC plasma cut process. Plasma cutting can overheat the metal and change the hardness of the target leading to more edge chipping shortening the life of the target. We powder coated in white so they are ready for action. Made in the USA
T Post Steel Target Hanger
Our T Post Steel Target Hanger uses a common T Post Fence Post while holding your 12×20 t post target at a 20-degree angle safely deflecting spent shrapnel to the ground below the target. The open hook design of the 7×14 hostage t post target hanger allows you to quickly change your targets. Install the included grade 8 carriage bolt into your target with the lock nut and adjust so the target is properly angled. As a result, the target can still move absorbing the energy of the shot while ringing like a bell. We designed the tube so it fits over the fence post and bolts on with two supplied 5/16″ bolts.
AR500 Hostage Target & Mount
Shooting steel targets has never been more fun! Our bolt on ar500 paddle comes is 5″ x 3/8″ and swings side to side when struck. 9mm or better works best to swing the paddle from side to side. It is mounted to the 2×4 mount so the main silhouette can still ring like a bell when hit. Whether you’re shooting hand guns or rifles, this system is sure to keep you’re shot groups honest.
Grade 8 hardware kit
Nothing can ruin your range time faster than a broken 12×20 t post target system. That is why we use a grade 8 carriage bolt to mount the silhouette to the 7×14 hostage t post target hanger. By using this design, the silhouette can move which helps absorb the energy from your shot and provide a loud ring that will bring a smile to your face.
Steel Target Lok System
Never worry again about your AR500 target bouncing off the stand with our included Target Lok system . Simply flip the lok down so it wraps around the 2×4 mount and your target is locked on. Want to remove your target? Simply flip the target lok up and lift the target off.

Minimum distances are as follows: 10 yards for pistols and 100 yards for rifles. Please review our caliber chart for minimum distances coordinating to your caliber.
