Grizzly Targets adds to their lineup of steel target systems, releasing the new AR500 steel plate equipped SOCOM Rack.

Developed alongside the team at Special Operations Command at their range on MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, Grizzly Targets says the new rack offers fluid operation and efficiency.

The target setup measures 51-inches by 32-inches by 80-inches with a weight of 435 pounds. AR500 steel rack plates measure 5-inches by 3/8-inches and are laser cut and factory tested.

The rack features cam-style pucks which hold the steel plates in place with no bolts needed. Grizzle says the advantage to this design is that plates and pucks never come loose and there’s no bolts to damage or mangle resulting in smooth operation of the SOCOM rack.

In addition, the body and legs of the system are hot dipped galvanized to prevent rust while the overbuilt, heavy duty construction is built to last. The front guard is removable on the unit, making for easy replacement. Topping off the features is the detachable wheel system which is available to add a little mobility to the SOCOM rack setup. As a bonus, the wheel system also doubles as a range cart once detached from the rack and then relocked together.

“When we say that the SOCOM Rack is a piece of equipment that can change your entire range, we are not kidding. It’s built to last, it’s built to withstand whatever you throw at it and it’s built to actually be serviceable as it ages,” the company said in a press release.

The SOCOM rack is rated for handgun and rifle use. MSRP is $2,399, however the company is offering the rack for $1,995 for a limited time via its website.
