The MGM Targets Dueling Tree with 6 targets is a workhorse on the range. The post is a solid steel angle iron. The target hinges are the same 1″ solid round bar design we use on our plate racks, so we know they are good for a lot rounds. And of course, we still use only premium 3/8″ thick HEXALLOY 550 steel for our 6″ MGM HEXPlate target faces. The MGM HEXPlate is a sure sign you’ve got a genuine MGM target.
While most people perceive this steel plate target system as a pistol target, it’s gained a lot of popularity in the long range rifle community and as a MIL/LE training target. It’s always been a favorite in the competition community. After all, what better way to determine who’s the best shooter out of you and all of your buddies?!?! And if you’re evenly matched, it’s a real ammo burner!!
Below is video of the 6 plate dueling tree in action. It’s somewhat dated, the target plates have now been upgraded to the ultra cool hexagon shape that MGM is world renowned for.
If you want to use our Dueling Tree with 6 Targets as a rifle target you need a rifle grade shield linked here.
Target swing and bolt length: The bolts are that length by design. We found that when we put shorter bolts on there, the target plates could actually swing PAST 90 degrees, and the end of the bolts would wedge themselves on the inside edge of the angle iron post. The target has been shot hundreds of thousands of times with no issues in the traditional dueling tree configuration, even though they are slightly short of the full 90 degrees as they are.
