PT Torso

  • Category: Steel Target
  • Brand: Action Target


Every steel training program needs a basic building block. The PT Torso provides the perfect foundation for law enforcement and personal defense training.

The PT Torso is a great tool for accuracy and speed drills because the immediate feedback of clanging steel reinforces good shooting habits. Even from a distance, shooters are able to recognize accurate hits through both site and sound. More than one torso can also be used to set up tactical exercises simulating multiple attackers or shoot vs. no-shoot situations.

The PT Torso is made of through hardened AR550 armor steel and has a perfectly flat shooting surface with no exposed bolts, clamps, or brackets making it perfect for tactical handgun drills or rifle training from appropriate distances*.

NOTE: The stand and feet are made of mild steel and are not intended to withstand the force of a bullet. Shooting the stand and feet may result in damage.

*Please refer to the Steel Target Safety Rules before shooting on any steel target, and learn more about steel hardness and target design by reading The Science Behind Steel Targets.


Can I shoot a rifle at the PT Torso?: Yes. The PT Torso is designed for use with rifle ammunition under 3,000 fps muzzle velocity at 100 yards.

Do the PT Torso dimensions match up to any competition specifications?: The PT Torso dimensions are unique to Action Target and do not match the official specifications of any competitive organization.

Can I get a PT Torso in AR500 steel?: The PT Torso is only available in AR550 armor steel which is rated for rifle and handgun use.

What is the ideal stand height for the PT Torso?: We suggest mounting the PT Torso target head to a 3’ static stand to achieve the most realistic height scenario for training situations. Using a 4’ or other stand height, however, will not cause the target to become too top heavy.

Can I attach the PT Torso to an PT Practice Stand?: Because the PT Torso target head is not excessively heavy, it can be attached to the PT Practice Stand without making it too top heavy. To ensure maximum stability, mount the target head on the lower setting.
