Birchwood Casey launched a new target design, the AR500 Dueling Tree, aimed at making range time just a little more entertaining.

The new AR500 Dueling Tree serves up six paddles 6-inches in diameter with a thickness of 3/8-inches. Comprised of AR500 steel, the paddles are designed to withstand long-term abuse downrange from centerfire handguns. The plates are also outfitted with orange replaceable Target Spots. These brightly colored spots boast increased visibility for easier target acquisition.

Bring a friend and duel it out or go it alone. The Dueling Tree’s plates swing side-to-side when hit, offering instant feedback and constant shooting action.

The tree’s canted stand sits on four stable legs and its lack of springs or mechanisms means it’s almost maintenance free. Easy to assemble, the stand requires no tools. The setup ships with a hard, molded case for easier transportation to and from the range.

Made in the US, Birchwood Casey’s AR500 Dueling Tree target is priced at just under $400.
