Continuous innovation: This is the heartbeat of our mission. We desire to continue to offer only the most radically refined steel target systems in this universe, designed for the most rigorous use. We continue that legacy forward with the NEW A-DAP 2.0 Line of portable steel target systems. 

The A-DAP 2.0 target system features an adjustable angle bracket that allows various degrees of forward lean. This lean is steeper and more versatile than our previous generations of A-DAP steel target systems which results in an even more well-rounded system for steel target connoisseurs. This laser cut, precision formed set of brackets allows nearly 45 degrees of lean with our C Zone target system and nearly 40 degrees of lean with our Mini A-DAP system. Our users can now choose the best lean for their needs and target presentation requirements. These systems now also feature a revised A-DAP top bracket that has been extended almost 2" to allow more movement of the steel plate when impacted. Users can continue to couple their existing hostage accessories with this system. This is total compatibility with older accessories. This step in the evolution of our A-DAP AR550 Steel Target Systems is a pivotal moment in our history as we further define what it truly means to create the ultimate steel target systems and components. 



- Reduced C Zone Target plate. Approximately 30% SMALLER than our C Zone A-DAP Plate

- Extremely durable and stable 20" round base standard. Available upgrade to our Arachnid Armored base for ultimate stability, strength and portability. 

- Standard Tool-less construction, just like our other A-DAP targets

- 3/8" AR550 plate construction, which can be unbolted and flipped to extend life of target

- Available upgrade to 1/2" AR550. 1/2" AR550 means serious business!

- Target Plate Dimensions: Approximately 8" Wide x 16" Tall, This is a REDUCED C Zone Target system.

- Bolts are our standard GRADE 8 Carriage bolts

- This system features our newest adjustable lean brackets for optimum target lean for various uses and distances. Please note: we recommend using the armored post for steep lean angle applications. Accelerated 2x4 wear will be experienced on the last hole setting. 

- 3/8" AR550 version is rated for pistols at 10 yards, .223-308 at 50 yards. Larger calibers 100 yards. 

- 1/2" AR550 version is rated for pistols at 10 yards, .223 as close as 30 yards (with proper ammo), 308 at 50 yards, magnum rifle calibers at 100 yards and beyond

- Add the Hostage Assembly for a reactive twist to an already epic target system. Click here to learn more about the Hostage Assembly. 

*NOTE: Distance recommendations are determined with lead core, copper jacketed ammunition with a muzzle velocity of 3,000 FPS or less. Faster ammunition may require further distances to avoid possible dimpling of the plate. 

- Approximate weight of complete system is 55 pounds. 

- Ships in a 24"x24"X6" or 12"x24"x8" box depending on base chosen

- Base not intended to withstand bullet impacts

- Not intended for steel core or penetrator ammunition


So what kind of lifespan can you expect from this target? We anticipate that, when used properly, our targets can withstand 25,000 rounds to 50,000 rounds of use. That is honestly a conservative number as we have departments with over 150,000 confirmed rounds on our 1/2" AR550 A-DAP targets. The key here is PROPERLY. Using ammunition that goes against our recommendations or shooting projectiles and calibers closer than recommended will shorten the lifespan. You will put wear and tear on the plate throughout its life. We recommend rotating the plate as soon as you see warping or any pitting. Doing this proactively will further increase the lifespan.

Highly recommend
Written by James Phipps on Sep 20th 2020

I bought 2 of these with the hostage targets, they are so well built and fun to shoot. .The base is very stable and I love that I have to option to use the same base for cardboard targets . I will only be purchasing my steel targets from them in the future.

Wish I had this sooner!
Written by Cory Brossard on Sep 9th 2020

This is such a great setup, I wish I would have gotten it sooner! the base only is worth it to me being able to setup traditional cardboard target or mount the steel target is great. add in the mini target its great for pistol work and keeping you honest with rifle at distance. If you're reading the review and on the fence just buy it you won't have any regrets!

Ta mini 3/8
Written by Tyler Browder on Feb 13th 2020

Found this target from watching @blackirongunner. Had nothing but good things to say and had the range time with his targets to show how tough these targets are. And with about 300 rounds on mine already I know it's going to last! Thanks @blackirongunner and tatargets!

Beyond Satisfied
Written by Matt on Feb 13th 2020

I bought this setup awhile back and upgraded to the AR550 1/2" steel. Beyond satisfied with it and every other TAT Im lucky enough to own. All my friends and family enjoy them just as much as I do. TOP-NOTCH quality and on top of that a company that cares about us as a consumer, an doing soooo many good things for our 2A community!!!!!

Awesome target
Written by James B on Jan 28th 2020

I was concerned that maybe going the mini route was a mistake UNTIL range time. This is an awesome target if and I loved the instant feedback of a hit. If you cannot hit this target then you need to spend time on the range until you do! Hitting a small azone means a good hit on a body.

Great target
Written by Alex M. on Jan 25th 2020

Shooting steel is so satisfying! Great target and the hostage plate assembly is key...much thanks.

First steel target, won't be my last!
Written by Sergio Martinez on Nov 24th 2019

I went with the smaller silhouette to save money, but upgraded to the 1/2" because I would have to shoot at it from closer distances. One feature I really like about this target is that it swings from a hinge when you hit it, something i haven't seen from other brands. Well worth the money, and I will be buying more steel in the future!

Best out there
Written by Sam Consentino on Oct 9th 2019

Tldr: Buy with confidence, stellar quality & design, well worth the money. 5/5 I have used a few different steel targets and they just aren’t the same quality and the design falls flat compared to Tatargets. I ordered the 2/3 mini adap target. Perfect size to really hone your skills and not cheat yourself on accuracy. After a day of shooting with friends there was not a single dimple on the steel. The way it swings allows it to spread the debris more safely. The ability to use a 2X4 as the stand is one of the best parts. Its cheap and plentiful. Replacement hardware easy to get. Minimal amount of welds that will weaken and break. You can also use the base for 1X2s to use paper targets.

#1 steel targets hands down!!!
Written by Daniel on Aug 21st 2019

Amazing quality, super fast shipping (got mine 2 days after ordering) and amazing customer service!! I will definitely be back to buy more!!!

Top tier.
Written by Aaron on Jun 5th 2019

It’s always awesome to find a company that operates with integrity. This target is true quality, and sings surprisingly well for the size that it is. Also the hostage flipper is super fun to throw in to any drill. I might have to wait until next Memorial Day to purchase more targets, but they will definitely be TA. Yeah, targets are expensive, but these ones are reasonably priced for the quality they are.

This company provides great service! Their shipping is quick I ordered my target Sunday night, it shipped Monday and I received it Wednesday. The package was in great condition when it arrived and packed very well. The target itself was flawless and very simple to setup. You can see the quality in these targets compared to other steel target companies. I plan on making more orders from them very soon. You can’t go wrong buying from these guys! Everything was better than expected. Do not hesitate to order anything from this website.

Those who know, know. This is the best steel target system on the market! You get what you pay for with this target. Long lasting and practical for many different training situations. This is that target solution I have been looking for.

Amazing System
Written by Nate on Feb 27th 2019

I ordered three of these systems for my personal use and I can say they are nothing short of amazing. The quality workmanship, materials, and design are unparalleled. I never used to really understand the hype until I got hands on myself. Now I see why they are so wildly popular. If you are intending to putting some serious hours in at the range this year, I strongly suggest you consider an investment in your target systems. A+ for these folks. (Not to mention my targets shipped the day after I placed the order!!)

Great customer service
Written by kurt curtis on Dec 22nd 2018

I had an issue with my order and sent Jared an email. He replied and we solved the issue over the weekend. Called on Monday and my order shipped the next day. I will be ordering another target from Jared and the crew.

True Quality
Written by Phillip on Dec 10th 2018

I purchased the 2/3 Magnum A-DAP 3/8 target system for the first time from TAT Targets and right when I unboxed the product I was impressed. The quality, simplicity, and engineering that goes into these products are above my expectations. I’ve always used home made targets and they’re okay but these targets are worth every penny. Can already tell just after the first use at the range that this target has a long life ahead of it. TAT Targets are now and forever the only targets I’ll purchase.

Worth Every Penny!
Written by Mike D. on Sep 17th 2017

Let's be honest shooting paper is boring. The satisfaction of hearing that ping when you hit this target is like no other. The construction is top notch and the best part is that it is made in the USA! The ease of breakdown makes transporting a dream. The size of this 2/3 target is perfect for keeping you honest. This is the first steel I've bought from you guys and it won't be my last keep up the good work guys!

This is my second one, and I plan on buying couple more. WIsh I had money to buy them all at once. Absolutely awesome targets!! Well built, easy to put up and store. Highly recommend!! Shooting tree next on my list.

Great Target!
Written by Travis J. on Jul 5th 2017

Excellent quality target system! Simple to setup, break down, and transport to & from the range. I shoot at multiple locations so the ability to transport these targets easily is a major plus. The size of the 2/3 Magnum A-DAP is great for how I use steel targets in my training. It is clear they put a lot of thought into designing & manufacturing this target system. Great work.

Let Freedom Ring!!!
Written by Mike E. on Jul 2nd 2017

I was fortunate enough to receive one of the first of these targets from the pre-order special. I had read awesome reviews on the full size A-DAP, but was a little skeptical about buying a 2/3 size... Well, I've got to say, the 2/3 size is plenty big! It actually encourages more carefully shot placement and trains the shooter to shoot tighter groups! I shot also shot this at the minimum recommended 50 yards with a .556 55gr bullet. Wholly cow, did it ring loud! If you had asked me if I thought it put a dent in the plate at that close of a distance, based on the force of the impact from the bullet, I would have said absolutely. Upon checking the target, I was amazed at how tough this metal is. Not even a dimple in it! This is good steal. This target will easily last me a lifetime of use. If you haven't ordered one of these yet, you need to go ahead and stop stalling, bite the bullet and get one on order. It is well worth the money and is an incredible value for $199. The quality of the stand, plate, and mounting system is second to none. Thanks TAT for such an incredible quality product!
