The Thunder 1000 by Thunder Equipment is one of the smallest 10 dummy shooters ever made! It's totally self-contained and made from solid aluminum with commercial-grade powder coating for years of reliable service.

Size: 11" x 11" x 19", 24 lbs.

Comes complete with launcher and 10 bumpers.

The Thunder 1000 10-shot remote dummy launcher from Thunder Equipment allows you to get high arcs and distance in your retriever setups. It is perfect for folks training for long-distance retrieves, Hunt Test competitions and Field Trials.

The Thunder 1000 is easy to operate and made from the highest quality industrial materials and components. It is designed to withstand the demands of outdoor field use and provide years of maintenance-free service. Unlike previous models, there is no need to prime this system.

The Thunder 1000 dummies can be reloaded in less than 10 seconds. It requires no carrying case to move or store. Just disarm the system, fold the bipod legs into the body and carry on your shoulder or vehicle.

The launcher body is made of solid aluminum sheeting with a black powder-coated exterior. The enclosed case makes it almost impervious to rain. Being fully enclosed shields it from dust, debris, mud, weeds, etc. that are encountered in a normal day's training. It will reliably launch bumpers in any temperature between 25 - 100 degrees F.

The Thunder Equipment Thunder 1000 dummy launcher is powered by MAPP gas. When not in use, the mounting legs are contained inside the body of the launcher itself, so there are no worries about where to store them or possible damage. The Thunder 1000 includes 10 white bumpers with removable black bands.

  • Launcher uses a MAPP gas cylinder and 8 "AA" batteries (not included) to operate
  • Remote release receiver can be attached to outer housing using Velcro or Receiver Lok (not included)
