If you need an extra base for replacing a worn-out one or for setting up more targets, you can pick it up here. TA Target’s signature 20″ round target base is what we use for holding both our Mini A-DAP steel targets and paper targets. It weighs enough to not tip over in the wind when we have paper targets stapled up and is beefy enough to firmly hold our steel targets upright on a 2×4″ post. The round design makes it both stable and easy to haul around the range. The Generation 2 model comes with two removable, adjustable furring strip holders and the required bolts and wing nuts to lock them on to the base. 

There is a saying that says: anything downrange can eventually be shot. This is true of the paper holders as well. With the Gen 2 model, now they may be serviced or replaced in the event of a low impact.


One 20″ TA Target Round Base (Generation 2), including a welded ring with welded 2×4 post receiver; one left paper holder; one right paper holder; two 3/8″ hex bolts; two 3/8″ flat washers; two 3/8″ wing nuts. (Note: This base may ship in multiple packages/sizes depending on your order and quantity.)

THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE TARGET SYSTEM. The complete system can be purchased here.

This base will hold up to any spall that splashes onto it from shooting steel targets. But it will not hold up to being shot directly, as it is not a target itself.

I can make my own base for cheaper. Why would I get this?
Simple 2×4″ bases work decently well for holding paper targets. But we still prefer this because it weighs about 22 lbs, which prevents it from tipping over in the wind. Plus we can use it for holding both steel and paper targets, which we often swap out depending on the course of fire or drill. Suffice it to say, this base makes life easier for us. One less thing to worry about when trying to train and practice.
What size board fits the paper holders? 
1 X 2 furring strips are ideal for the paper holders. The Gen 2 model features slightly larger holes to receive the paper holders. This means more variance for lumber sizes. 1 X 2 furring strips can be found at most lumber or home improvement stores.
Does the warranty cover bases?
The welds on the base are covered and guaranteed against cracking under approved uses. The paper holders are not covered by a warranty as they are considered a wear item if struck by bullets. The paper holders are inexpensive to replace. You can find replacements HERE.
Are these Made in America?
By the FTC Standards, yes they are. Though TA has much higher standards than that so they’re very up-front with where everything is sourced from. The armored plating is produced in mills in Sweden at one of, if not the, best steel facilities in the world. It’s a higher quality armor plating than American manufacturers offer, which is why they searched internationally for the best option. All manufacturing, processes, forming, fabrication, and other steps are done by TA in Pennsylvania. Technically “Made in America”… but better.
