SmartRange AXIS™ New Features 

Action Target continues its commitment to expanding the capabilities of SmartRange AXIS™, the industry’s most powerful and complete range management system. SmartRange Axis puts complete range control at the fingertips of a range manager. Our user-friendly interface gives unparalleled control over lane management, target systems, ventilation (HVAC), pre-programmed drills, customer support, and target integrations. Smart Range AXIS provides unmatched customer engagement and training value to the range owner.

As part of updates to SmartRange AXIS, Action Target has improved the integrated target camera’s resolution and live feed capabilities on our Genesis and Pilot target retrievers. Customers can view the target in real-time, on the control screen, at any distance. Additionally, Smart Range AXIS will now provide the option to utilize a larger 15” local control screen in each stall.

Action Target has integrated additional target systems to SmartRange AXIS, including electric turning targets and DRM Pro (Dual Running Man running target. SmartRange AXIS also manages custom stall LED lights from the range’s master control system, unlocking additional branding and customization opportunities.

 Shooting Stalls 

Action Target re-introduces the CitadelTM shooting stall to its industry-leading shooting stalls lineup. Continuing to improve on our offerings, Action Target will feature new brass deflectors, training barricades, and easy lift tables. The updated brass deflectors will come standard with an adjustable height feature that prevents spent brass from entering adjacent stalls. The easy lift table allows access for down-range servicing of equipment or tactical training. These are just a few of the latest developments in Action Target’s mission to “build the safest and most advanced shooting ranges possible.”

Pilot X – Xtreme

New this year to Action Target’s extensive offerings of target retrievers is the Pilot Xtreme—a retriever built for outdoor ranges and training. The new product is designed to perform reliably in tough conditions with heavy rainfall, high humidity, and temperatures ranging from 32⁰F – 120⁰F. Engineered features such as an all-weather track and IP64-rated electronics allow this product to operate in the most remote locations around the globe. Learn more about the Pilot Xtreme by visiting the Action Target booth at this year’s SHOT Show.

Modular Range/s – ARCASTM

Over the past 36 years, Action Target has had the privilege of building thousands of ranges worldwide. Our shooting range products span every environment and meet the needs of the world’s most straightforward and advanced training facilities. Action Target, the leading range equipment provider in the world, previously partnered with CoverSix, the leader in customized modular buildings, to redefine Modular Small Arms Ranges. Together we commit our expertise to provide the next evolution of shooting range technology. ARCASTM Modular Range platform is the first of its kind modular range that genuinely meets the industry’s needs.

Recently, Action Target and CoverSix secured a contract with the U.S. Air Force to build the Offutt AFB Modular Range in Omaha, Nebraska. The ARCAS DLX is a UFC-compliant modular military range with an elevated viewing/control room, integrated ventilation system, 14 shooting lanes at a 25-yard shooting distance, and first-of-its-kind, open interior structure (no structural support columns) allowing cross-lane tactical training. The ARCAS DLX is engineered to look and operate identically to a permanent structure facility while providing the benefits of a modular platform that can be redeployed to a new location when necessary.
