MGM chose to use pillow block, greaseable bearings on this Swinger Target Stand to give it an incredibly long life, and an incredibly long swing time! Shoot some grease in there a couple times a year, and these bearings should last indefinitely. A 3/8" thick steel plate protects the bearings from ever being hit by a stray bullet. Activator plate is included as well.
The Swinger Target Stand also has adjustments on the pendulum shaft. The primary component operating this swinger is a 25 lb. counter weight. When you get this thing swinging, it isn't going to stop any time soon. In fact, this target will probably still be swinging after 2 minutes, so everyone has to shoot it on the move. The counter weight is adjustable. You can slide it up and down the counterweight shaft, which will to a degree vary the speed with which the target swings. It won't be an incredible difference, but it will be noticeable, and any variance increases the fun and challenge.
A large "T" adjustment bolt enables you to have the target swing back and forth in the center, or you can cock it so it swings from the center, down to the left, or you can make it swing from the center, down to the right. No tools needed. More variety, challenge, and FUN!
Finally, let's paint a word picture. Assume you have the top of the target "head" at 5' tall. The center of our bearing pivot point is about 20" off the ground. If the target starts out in the horizontal position before it is "tripped" and it swings to it's maximum stroke (approximately 180° opposite where it started from) the head is nearly 7' from where it started! You are never going to hit this target by accident! The stroke is long enough you can easily block part of the shooting area with "no shoots" or other vision barriers.
