    I might also recommend the older Remington 4100 machines - built like brick $hithouses, but as an older commercial machine their reliable and parts are still readily available.

    If you are not short for money, you can't beat an autosporter. The only time they miss a target is when the stack is empty.

    Cheaper but reliable is the Atlas 250. Pretty basic, but throws good targets.

    At this time, unless they have made significant structural changes, I would not buy the handset conversion. I know of two clubs that have some less than one year old and they are literally falling apart where the stack dividers are welded to the carosel. The aluminum is just not strong enough.

    You said best. The best would be a Pat trap. They are almost 100% trouble free.

    You didn't say cheapest.
