Portable.22 Target Frame

Probably the most popular caliber firearm in most of the world. Many of us have more than one. They also are very collectible and still cheap to shoot.

Portable.22 Target Frame

Postby Aughnanure » Mon Jun 18, 2012 8:53 pm

Thought that I'd put this in here as it's designed for use with the 'kinder' .22; one .30 or .303 in the wrong place... :(

The frame folds and is easily portable and was made from old motor mower handles and a few other bits off the mowers.

The pics speak for themselves.

This is the cam-lock for the mower handle and the locking plates needed to be welded at different angles to get a more or less 90 deg. frame.

Image

Erected and with a target in place, the cardboard backing is a standard size (sort of) that we use at the local ranges.
The aluminum bit holding the trget at the bottom was the spacer/nameplate on one mower

Image

A lick of paint and a more substantial top clip.

So, down to the shed and get out those old mower bits :D :D


I'm going to set the other handle up with the fitments to take a target as well, then if a stray shot does some damage I'll be able to continue.*





* of course, I'm not going to hit the frame. :bigsmile:

I got hit with a sudden burst of 'Genius Creatorum' as I looked at this chair which was destined for the tip.

which progressed to

then

and

resulting in (after a quick spray with a $2 can of Graffiti Special).
Image

The complete stand, before the paint.

Was going to take both to the range on Sunday (to receive the adulation of my peers :lol: ) but other things came up; my wife wished to attend a nursing seminar at Guyra (nearby town) and as she's my resident nurse, well!

I bought one of these http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000077CQ0/ref ... B000077CQ0 cut 1 1/2 " as it was a bit high , made a top from 3/4" ply , with a batton screwed to the underside to clamp in the jaws works well , I was thinking of removing the horizontal bar and putting an X shaped brace made of tubing for extra rigidity , but at the moment its good as is .

Very clever Duncan, and I bet that blue jack stand will hold at least a 2000 lb. rifle ........ :mrgreen:

I posted this before sometime long ago. I got this "portable" but commercially made stand for some kind of closeout price. It comes apart and fits in a canvas bag. I got it for taking to some property I was allowed to shoot on before it was sold. The stand is clunky and if you don't put it up regularly you scratch your head sometimes getting the assortment of metal tubes of assorted sizes joined back in the proper order. But......if you have a place to keep it always setup...... it's ok and serves the purpose.

The last time I saw one like it advertised it was maybe $50.
