Metal Targets
#11
I have no idea what sort of discount as I haven't got that detailed on this yet but it says cheaper ship rate to a business (by truck). I guess it would get too complicated anyways with someone having to front the $$ to begin with then collect from everyone.

I really do think those targets look awesome though.

If Brian is unable to make you targets...I have found Birchwood Casey metal targets to be of EXCEPTIONALLY high quality. I have several that I use often. I purchased mine off amazon.com.

And most of the "gun free" world is famous for the mass government sanctioned executions because of the lack of guns"...

if people are still interested in targets, i work at the McAdoo machine company, we do cnc machining and any metal fab you can think of.
we deal with AR plate on the regular, we have a water jet there as well and can cut the ar in to any shape or design you want, we do mostly industrial work, our metal thru the shop is only marked up 15 precent, which is what out shop discount is on the metal, as far as water jet time, its 175 an hour, but to cut half inch think AR plate, in a 18 inch square, your only talking like 5 mins most. so 175/5mins.

let me know if any one is interested in this

WJ time is $2.92/minute, (2.91666) 5 minutes is $14.60, (14.58333). That sounds reasonable, is there a setup or design charge? A square or circle is easy, how about a bird or animal? Will you work with someone else's cad file? What format, DXF, DDES, or other?
What is the actual cost of the steel per square foot ?

Thanks

tomorrow when i go to work ill try to get a price from my boss, what thickness would you like, as far as these go there will be no design charge, just simply cost of metal and water jet time. i know ar plating is not cheap. i think 1/2 is over kill, but i dont know what most people run.

were a private family owned business and to create the file would take a matter of 5 mins for simple things. if you have your own file, which can open most general files, dxf dog ext, you can just pm me and ill give you my email and i can get it to the work computer.

if you want holes cut in the middle to put tannrite behind it as a show kinda target or something, thats no problem.

if you want to give me a general size of something youd like ill try to get an exact price as examples

sorry for the delay. just been really busy lately.

for a 4 foot by 8 foot sheet your looking at $753.

so for a 12 inch by 12 inch target your looking at 25.53 plus the cut time.

im was talking with a gentleman about designing a hold system for these pieces if any one was intered in it. being im in a metal fab shop any thing is possible. we were looking for a sytem to drop on a 4x4 wooden post as there cheap to replace should you shoot it up to bad. im still workin on the design. it would also incorperate that the AR plates have holes drilled and studs welded in them on the back side to hold them to the mount.

if you would want holes drilled in them to hang by chain that would probably be abnout 10 dollars more per plate. so for 35 dollars you have a ar plate you can hang by chain.


let me know if you have any ideas or thoughts on this or interest in getting it.
