I have a LaRue sniper target that I no longer need. Here is some info about them.
LaRue Targets are made of the highest quality materials and are produced on computer numerically controlled (CNC) machinery that gives consistent high quality. The steel silhouette is 28 inches high, 32 inches wide and after being hit, returns to the upright position, the target automatically shuts off until the silhouette is again hit and knocked down. This is the primary reason for the systems long battery life. It also precludes having to turn the targets off and on, although there is a master on/off switch. The silhouette itself is made of 3/8 inch steel plate that is hardened to 500 Brinnell. Silhouette plates are rated to accommodate 7.62mm NATO, but the author has shot them with .300 Winchester Magnum at ranges as close as 200 meters without ill effect. LaRue targets are battery powered and will cycle through approximately 1,800 down and up cycles before requiring a recharge. The targets are completely waterproof and can be left out without damage. Users have reported leaving LaRue targets exposed to the weather over a year's time without affecting their operation. Other users have reported that LaRue targets have continued to function after being completely submerged for several days. LaRue Tactical stands behind the quality of its targets and will repair or replace any target that is found to be defective.
The targets retail for $1400 on the LaRue website. Here is the link:

I have only used this one, once or twice. I am selling the target for $900, but I am open to trades for high end used 1911's

Here is a pic of the actual target. The steel is in awesome condition. Other then being a bit dusty from being in storage and having a few scuffs from being moved around and stacked it is in excellent shape.

I would, but this sucker is a bit heavy due to the strong steel. It weighs around 60lbs+
I just want it out of my garage.

Free bump for the awesome target.

I have used these before and they are awesome. If I have the money I would snatch this up in a heartbeat.

We have these at the range I shoot at. Once a year we take all the targets down and recharge them whether they are dead or not. They are high quality targets. You can knock them down at 225 yards with a .40 S&W handgun if you hit the target high on the steel. I've seen it done by someone shooting off hand.

Good luck with the sale. Thats a good price. You gotta love these targets and that signiature sound they make when they fall.
