Action Target INC., the leading manufacturer of modern shooting ranges, has partnered with Springfield Armory to giveaway a Springfield Armory® SAINT™ and 5 Heavy Duty PT Pepper Poppers.
“When Springfield came to us with the idea for the SAINT promo video we thought it was a great idea and could not wait to be a part of the event. It has been a privilege to work with Springfield Armory on the launch of their new rifle and we were happy they chose Action Target to be play a part.” Seth Ercanbrack, Marketing Communications Manager, Action Target.
The Springfield Armory® SAINT™ AR-15 is built for defense and packs features valued by warriors into a carbine with a price point at a fraction of what one would expect. With an MSRP of just $899, the SAINT™ brings affordable reliability to the market. Featuring an optics ready flat-top design, the SAINT™ includes premium components like Bravo Company stock, hand guard, and combat-style pistol grip. Innovations like the Accu-Tite receiver tensioning system and exactingly fitted components make the SAINT™ a rock-solid self-defense platform. Nickle Boron-coated, micro-polished trigger components keep the right press weight for defensive use while presenting a smooth and crisp break. The 16-inch Chrome Moly Vanadium barrel with a 1:8-inch twist rate facilitates accuracy and longevity through hard use.
The Heavy Duty PT Pepper Poppers that we are giving away are not just off the shelf models; they have a unique story. To help support the launch of the Springfield Armory® SAINT™ AR-15 rifle, the Action Target team provided PT Pepper Popper Targets for a new and bold shooting scenario – PopperPalooza. Imagine 100 popper targets arrayed in front of Team Springfield™ Pro Shooter Rob Leatham equipped with a Springfield Armory® SAINT™ AR-15 and plenty of magazines loaded with Federal Premium .223 Remington frangible ammunition. The goal? Knock down the horde of targets with as few shots, and in as little time, as possible.
“We thought a unique way to show the industry that these rifles are made for heavy use was to create a challenging course of fire that would put as many rounds as possible through them in seconds, and that was the genesis of the PopperPalooza idea,” explained Springfield Armory® Director of Marketing Chad Dyer. “Now we’re pleased to offer some of those PopperPalooza targets and a brand new SAINT™ AR-15 rifle to a lucky winner.”
Action Target PT Pepper Poppers add a reactive element to training scenarios, competition, and any other type of shooter. The PT Pepper Popper is designed to fall backward when hit, offering both visible and audible feedback of a shot on target.
“What would every shooter really like to do? How about the challenge of knocking down 100 steel popper targets with an AR-15?” asks Springfield Armory® Pro Shooter Rob Leatham. “I’ve never even tried it, so the opportunity to set up so many Action Target Pepper Poppers and give the brand new Springfield Armory® SAINT™ a workout was one I couldn’t pass up. I’ve never had more fun shooting a rifle than that!”
The PT Series Pepper Popper Targets feature a reversible steel plate to extend the usable life of the target. A 12-inch center of mass round area gives shooters an ideal aiming point. Bolt adjustments in the base allow shooters to adjust the power required to knock over a popper, so scenarios can be designed to require a single hit or multiple impacts to score. The 42-inch tall target weighs 43 pounds and rests atop a 13×28-inch steel base.
Action Target and Springfield Armory® will announce the giveaway winner at the 2017 SHOT Show in Las Vegas on January 20, 2017.

About Springfield Armory®
“The First Name in American Firearms,” Springfield Armory® was founded in 1777, when George Washington ordered the creation of an armory to store ammunition and gun carriages during the American Revolution. In 1794, the armory began to manufacture muskets and spent the next 150 years supplying firearms for every major American conflict. The original armory closed in 1968. In 1974, the Reese family took ownership of the Springfield Armory® name and began making the M1A™ rifle. Today, Springfield Armory® develops many products loyal to the company’s heritage, like the 1911 pistol, while ensuring its future with innovative products, including the XD®, XD® Mod.2®, XD(M)® and XD-S® polymer pistols and now the new SAINT™ AR-15 rifle.
