    I’ve built and sold lots of duelling trees. Some have lasted years of public range use. Qt400 plate lasts much longer than ar500. It wont hold up to rifle rounds, but it isn’t so hard that it breaks on the elbow.
    Also, I’ve had the best luck with no springs or mechanical moving parts besides the swinging plates. 3/8” plate for strictly 9mm or 1/2” for 9mm and up. 5” rounds as well. 6” is too heavy.

    Yes, that was a recurrent problem with the previous design; not enough materials around the elbow caused the arm to snap. We updated the design to reinforce the elbow this spring and haven't heard of any issue yet.

    In any case, Please send us an email with your information at info@rangerabbit.com , I'll be happy to send you a set of replacement plates !

    I bought my tree from the previous owner so I imagine I'm SOL. Thanks though!

    Any idea when the armored versions redesign will be done? Or a shorty armored version

    I sent an email. It would be nice to have the tree up and running again.

    Just an update, my replacement plates are much beefier than the ones that broke. I don't doubt they will last a very long time. Thanks to Range Rabbit for the excellent CS!
