Review this product
14 November 2008  

Things I liked: This is great for my apartment; no noise or mess, You get plenty of shooting off of one target with the twelve bulls eyes. The trap is solidly built.
Things I would have changed: A little expensive, but factoring in the good qualities, it's not that highly priced.
What others should know: Other reviews mentioned the empty space at the top. Before I used this trap I mashed the ballistics putty around to fill in this area as well as assuring good contact/overlap of the three pieces of ballistics putty. Besides, if you're shooting in the unfilled area you're not near a bulls eye anyway.

Things I liked: Nice for practicing in small spaces - no worry about ricochets. Compact size.
Things I would have changed: Putty does not extend all the way to the top so pellets shot at the top row of targets can pass into open space and hit back of the trap. Best to invert the paper to shoot the last row of targets to avoid problems. Frame cracked where the paper groove is cut when I lifted an edge. Just glued it back on and now I am careful when lifiting. A handle on top would avoid this problem.

Things I liked: -Works as advertised, really is silent when struck with pellets -Looks to be built solidly -Comes with several target sheets to get you started -Virtually no mess thanks to design and materials
Things I would have changed: -Price was a little higher than I would like -At this price point I would have hoped that the trap could handle more than just "guns that produce less than 18 foot-pounds of energy at 10 meters." It would be nice if in the future they had a version that could handle upto 25 foot-pounds
What others should know: -This has been one of my best purchases from PA -Truly is quiet, based on another review here I bought this to use in my apartment and it's a great solution for my environment -Before I bought this pellet trap, I had been using stacked phonebooks behind target sheets... this was an el-cheapo solution that created tons of mess for me to deal with. I didn't realize how badly a couple dozen pellets would tear up them, ie. I had paper dust in my apartment for a while. With the ballistic putty backing, the A.G.E. trap has no such side effects.

Things I liked: Nice large size. great for apartments.
Things I would have changed: I am adding a handle to the top for easy carry. There is a support wood beam near the top that tends to bounce pellets out of the trap, but it's not much of a problem. I would increase the box depth 1" to allow the addition of more leaded clay.

Things I liked: Stops pellets quite well.Easy to slip targets in.
Things I would have changed: Make it taller so that you can use the large twelve target paper that you get with the trap and not have to go down and turn the target over to shoot the last remaining targets on the sheet.Other wise the last three targets on the sheet hit the protruding wood backing instead of the puddy.
What others should know: Shorter targets work fine with trap.
