One of the most common questions we get is, "what is the difference between the Athena NC100 and NC200?" Let's take a moment to explore their differences.
Both the NC100 and NC200 are part of Athena's family of Electronic Scoring Targets (ESTs). Both scores shots to within .1mm, both use the same internal components, and both use the same computer vision technology to score bullet holes. Most importantly, both the NC100 and NC200 are effectively the same price.
The difference is simple. The NC100 is designed for air rifle and air pistol only. The NC200 is designed for air rifle, air pistol, and indoor smallbore rifle.
The NC100 uses a thinner external steel frame and has a built-in backstop, both of which are graded only for air gun pellets.
The NC200 has a thicker external steel frame graded for smallbore bullets. It does not have an internal backstop. Customers who purchase the NC200 will need to provide their own external backstop.
If you are an individual or club that only shoots air rifle or air pistol, purchase the NC100. Having the built-in backstop will be beneficial to you. But if you are an individual or club that also shoots indoor smallbore rifle, then you'll need to purchase the NC200.
