We have been asked over the years to design an air-powered net gun suitable for small animal capture, primarily birds and dogs. Here it is. The MagNet.

The MagNet is powered by a single 16 gram CO2 canister. One shot per canister. 

Nets are available in various sizes from 4ft x 4ft to 8ft x 8ft. Various mesh sizes are also available to suit your application. The nets are interchangeable and, once untangled, can be re-used. We have several standard sizes in stock to suit most any application. Custom net configurations are also available.

 

MagNet Instructional Video

When fired, the net is propelled by the kinetic energy deployed to each of the four corner-weights attached to the net. Our corner weights are rubber-padded to lessen the chance of potential injury.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT A TOY. THIS IS A PROFESSIONAL ANIMAL CAPTURE TOOL. IMPROPER USE MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY. ALWAYS KEEP THE MAGNET POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION. 

Effective range of The MagNet varies with net size and configuration. You can expect a realistic capture distance of 10 to 25 feet, depending on your net and quarry. You can rely on our experience to supply you with the proper net for your target.

For faster follow-up shots you can upgrade The MagNet with an additional 2 or 4 replacement "heads."

These pre-loaded "heads" allow the fastest possible opportunity to fire additional nets.

Finally got out to test fire the (suspended) launcher with the new blanks. They worked great... The net worked great fully deploying each time. At 8 feet it worked perfect. These rounds definitely work better.

Thanks for your help.

Utah goats headed for idaho 9/17/07

Tyler- don’t know if you heard but this morning they are saying that moving 43 goats is the largest mountain goat capture EVER and are claiming it was near miraculous to have no mortalities. I am so proud to have been involved in the effort and just wanted to thank you and your crew for the work you did.

It was fantastic team work with all involved and I just can’t think of any way it could have gone better.
