The overall dimensions of the freestanding Caldwell Magnum Rifle Gong are 38-inches wide by 33-inches tall by 35-inches deep. The frame is constructed of steel tubing, which requires no tools to assemble or disassemble, and the entire 25-pound system breaks down for easy transportation.

The 10-inch armored steel gong is tested to a Brinell hardness of 550 and is able to withstand repeated shots from most handgun and rifle cartridges. Dual chains hold the 3/8-inch-thick gong 18 inches above the ground, and two included spikes hold the assembly firmly in place. The Magnum Rifle Gong is designed to last longer if shot at a minimum distance of 100 yards with bullets having velocities less than 3,000 fps upon impact. Price: $170.
