Super Target Systems Bullet Trap 12″ x 12″, 1″ Ballistic Rubber Face, perfect for my PCP Airgun.
Reviewed in the United States on April 24, 2021
I have a high powered Texan .457 SS Airgun. It shoots hard and will completely penetrate just about any wood I shoot at. I bought the Super Target Systems Bullet Trap 12″ x 12″, 1″ Ballistic Rubber Face to make my shooting experience safer. I was amazed at how the Bullet trap stopped and collected the high speed slugs. I shot it in several different locations on the target and got the same result each time. A stopped and collected .45 caliber bullet.
The front of the target is a ballistic rubber face plate. The rear of the target is a steel plate. The front rubber plate slows the projectile and the rear steel plate stops the projectile completely. The self sealing rubber face plate does not allow any fragments or dust to escape.

Have put over 450 rounds of 9mm and .45 acp no signs of piting on the backplate or damage to the trap, so far I’m impressed.
This is quite the trap

I use this for my FX Maverick 25 caliber air rifle. I also filled the inside with rubber mulch to keep the sound down and to keep pellets from striking the back plate (to increase the life of the plate). I am convinced I could shoot my 9mm handgun in my basement with this, but then I’d have to go around and pick up all the brass from behind dryer or freezer ?? But it’s perfect for high power air guns as it contains the pellets. 22 cal, low power pellets bounce off the rubber face, so not so good for that. The models with 3/8” rubber face are better for low power pellets.
Super Target Systems Bullet Trap with 1″ Ballistic Panel

Very well made, heavy duty. The ballistic panel helps to quiet impact sounds to a light ring upon impact with a HP PCP Airgun. I glued a 1/2” ballistic panel to the inside back plate and now it makes just a dull thud upon impact, just what I wanted!
Love hitting this box

Hefty trap! So far I’ve run 300 rounds into this (ok, probably peppered 5-10 in the dirt zeroing in a new scope) and it essentially looks brand new.
There is a distinct ping when the round strikes the back wall of this unit. I don’t find it distracting, but rather affirming (again, zeroing a new sight). Not terribly loud either. I’ve not yet attempted 9mm rounds, only .22LR from roughly 150 -250 feet. No visible damage on back wall of the trap.
It can be a bit challenging to lug around and could be greatly improved by adding a handle or at least a lip from which to grab. It’s uniformity and bottom-heaviness Just make it slightly …keyword “slightly” …awkward. Not problematic enough to deduct a star.
I’ve only used one type of adhesive target since my purchase, so I’m not sure if the colder weather, the target itself or the ballistic material on the face of this trap caused the target to peel and roll slightly. My gut says it’s due to temperatures in the mid-30°s. Only minimal peeling was noticed, but worth mentioning.
If you’re hesitant to make this purchase, I hope I’ve helped. I’m very impressed with the quality and expect to get Years of use out of this.

Works extremely well for 22 caliber rounds

Works extremely well for 22 caliber rounds.
You can even shoot 5.7×28 lead core rounds into this trap IF you replace the inside rubberized panel with a 1 inch panel, and buy the optional 2 inch rubber panel and put it in the front. That will slow down 5.7 lead core bullets so that they are caught in the trap without any damage to the AR 500 plate.

Performs great. Takes all the 45acp I’ve thrown at it.

This is a well made heavy duty target trap. When you pick it up you know you have something in your hands
Great Customer Service

The target is solid and works well for my needs. Super Target Systems customer service went above and beyond when the package was damaged and Amazon subsequently cancelled my package without notifying me.
