Not for Sale
Designed for the solo shooter, the Patriot is our most affordable trap thrower. And it never surrenders an inch in quality and high performance.

With its zinc-plated, made in the USA, solid steel frame, the Patriot outlasts by years the foreign competition from the big box stores. 

You can see the difference from the moment you unbox it — the strength in design, construction, and simplified modern technology. Steel frame. Lightweight aluminum throwing arm. Durable, consistent polyurethane throwing strip

Like our high-end models, the small yet powerful Patriot does its work with no chain and no sprockets. Naturally, creating a direct drive machine without chain or sprockets vastly reduces maintenance. But the advantages don’t stop there. 

You can see the difference in the clean design. And in the quiet followthrough. No power is lost to the rattling links of a chain on a greasy sprocket. Power goes smoothly into the throw. 

That means your birds fly as intended. And they’re not broken in the rough, shuddering action of inferior foreign designs. After all, you want to destroy your birds with shot, not with your trap thrower. 

And you can do that all the better because the Patriot allows you to focus every bit as much as our higher-end models. You won’t have to make constant adjustments. Or troubleshoot random, aggravating problems. 

That reliability means you can count on every throw like clockwork. So that you can focus on your skills. Making your own shots like clockwork. 

You don’t have to find workarounds, because the Patriot, though inexpensive and compact, just works. It works right and keeps on working right.  

That’s especially important because when you’re shooting alone, you don’t have any extra hands for workarounds. Or tweaking settings over and over. Or constantly having to reset. When it’s just you, it’s just you. And you’re there to shoot. 

The 25-foot push-button release cord lets you release targets with the push of a button. The 0.6-second release time keeps plenty of birds in the air for solo, solitary practice. 

Powered by a 12-volt battery, somewhat surprising for its size, its throws are consistent and powerful. 

The 50-target capacity is more than plenty. And the Patriot’s fully-automatic action is like an AR-15 compared to a single-ball musket. Once you experience it, you’ll never go back to inadequate hand-cocked traps. 

While it’s not compatible with wobble or tri-axes wobble bases, that’s by design and is an advantage for the solo shooter. 

That’s because the powerful minimalist construction extends even to the kind of base you’ll have to use with it. Nothing fancy allowed. The trap and the base are minimalist, simple, reliable. (You can mount it on a traditional 2-wheeled cart, or even on a simple base that you build yourself.)

So everything just works. No acting up. No tweaking of the trap or the base. You set it, forget it, and start shooting. And you can keep shooting until you’re ready to head back to the house.

And in any case, with its built-in angle adjustments along both axes, you enjoy an infinite variety of trajectories. For an infinite improvement in your skills

The Patriot is for the demanding solo shooter who requires an affordable, high-performance, reliable machine. You’ll feel the difference in every flight, and see it in every shot.

great machine
first time using the patriot was pretty painless. Great, durable machine. A friend bought a do-all with the wobbler attachment and with the two side by side you really notice the difference. It was his second clutch on his and was acting up again after 2 boxes. Constantly having to reset his. you can see the quality in the patriot compared to others. Very happy.

Retired engineer
Recently purchased a Patriot trap and Can honestly say it's some of the best money that I've ever spent. Get the optional foot pedal and you will be much happier than if you had purchased the cheap Chinese junk commonly seen in sporting stores. The performance of the Patriot is flawless and mounting the unit could not have been easier using their optional receiver mount. Trust me and spend the extra money as you truly get what you pay for.

This machine has been excellent so far. Have only had it a couple months so far but have pushed 3,000-4,000 clays through it. Its made extremely well and has excellent customer support behind it. Any questions ive had they have been more than helpful with. Would not hesitate for a second to buy this or any of their other products.As far as throwing machines go I will be an Atlas customer for life.

Atlas Equipment
We are using Atlas equipment to set up ever changing stations around they family’s property. We love the versatility of our two AT-300’s. The latest addition was a Hare/Rabbit. Tons of fun and the machine is quite easy to set up when we change locations. Our four oscillating Patriots have been mounted to a small trailer and we use it as a flurry/flush with a BRB Sustems wireless setup. Also thanks to Able’s Ammo (our regional Atlas distributor) for the great support and advice. Atlas and Able’s are good people.

Patriot - A good investment
My Patriot showed up as promised. Packaging was good and directions for assemble were relatively easy to follow. Total assembly time, including reading the directions making sure to not damage anything or myself, took about 30 minutes. I mounted the unit on a small trailer I built. I was a bit surprised by the recommended battery size, but happened to have one handy. I haven't cranked it up to full strength yet, probably only about 80% so far and it has worked flawlessly. Very consistent on speed and distance. So far, there has been two of us, so only the push button was used. Still have to test the foot release. Uncocking is very easy, but make sure you follow the instructions. Feeding was very good with no broken birds on the first outing. The price seemed a bit high to me and I studied this unit for over a year before I bought it. There are others out there at the big stores that cost less, but it doesn't take long to see the difference between them. I think the cost on this one will pay off in the long run for sure and it will most likely out last me, but I plan on having fun trying to wear it out.

Atlas Patriot Trap
I purchased this Patriot Trap as a gift for my husband. Here is what he has to say. I'm 73 now and have used several personal type traps. The Atlas is by far the best and most TROUBLE FREE trap I have ever used. I had trouble right off in assembly of the Atlas but this was my fault in simply NOT READING THE INSTRUCTIONS. I contacted Atlas and they were very prompt in getting back to me and the assembly was a breeze. I would highly recommend the Patriot. Bob Cassidy

The Trap You're Gonna Try to Hate
You're going to hate the Patriot, not because it doesn't work well, but because it's awesome! It works so well you'll burn through shells like tomorrow and will be reloading every night just to keep up with its speed and you'll never get any sleep! I'm a Mechanical Engineer with 35 years design experience. This is one tough bugger! If you want to go to the range and not worry if your machine is going to work, this s is the one.

Solid, well built thrower
I received this thrower as a gift a month ago and have ran around 150 clays through it so far. It has operated perfectly so far.

We purchased a Patriot Trap thrower without ever actually being able to see one. Something I would not normally do but after reading reviews and talking to Mike at Atlas we went ahead and ordered one. It may have been one of the best decisions ever!! We sent about 500 birds through it the first day, it is outstanding. Considerably better construction than any of the throwers you find in the big chain stores!! Highly recommend it! Worth every penny.

Buy The Best
First given, we all need to practice and more often. Second, we need a great reliable thrower to be ready when we are whether it is 60 or 20 degrees outside. The Patriot comes through in all occasions. EZ to operate and maintain, it also doubles for our Law Enforcement shotgun courses, POST approved, here at the QUWF range. This is an investment in your accuracy, the more you use it the more you have.
