Pro Range Model
Many have asked what the difference is between the Pro Range Model and the Original Model.
As you can see by the photos below, the Pro model has stronger uprights and holds the furring strips in more securely . Both pictures below show 1x2 furring strip. Furring strips may vary in thickness.
If you are shooting competitively, a gust of wind
could affect your score if your target moves. The Pro Range model has more
robust uprights and holds the furring strips in more securely with less wobble.
We can now install furring strip locks on this model.

We are happy to say, that after 18 months of mulling it over and looking for
the "just perfect" hardware,
We first created the ProRange model to provide a tighter fit. That was fine, but as more shooters used our stands, the more comments we got about ill fitting furring strips. Well, for the average shooter, it probably doesn't matter much. But as civilian shooting competition grows in popularity, more shooters want to take any risk factors out of getting a good score. If you want to hit what you aim at, then your target moving when you're not in a moving target competition may be an issue.
This new design also allows you to put just about anything in the upright that fits!
We finally found the proper hardware configuration, consisting of a specially designed nut that is slightly necked. This allows us to inset the nut into the upright before welding it for superior strength. It also provides additional thread area, insuring trouble free use without worry of stripping nut. Thumbscrews included.
This design also preserves the ability to stack easily. We were concerned
about anything jutting out.
