Abstract : This invention is directed to an improved target raising mechanism for small arms targets, the mechanism being arranged to rotate the target and its counterweight simultaneously about a drive axis mounted 45 degrees in relation to ground level and about the centroidal axes of the counterweight and target which are positioned 45 degrees to the drive axis. In this arrangement for 180 degrees rotation of the drive axis the target is continuously moved in omni-planal fashion from a horizontal lowered position to a vertical raised position.
