In the Pistol rule section how is the vibration damping defined...eg is my pardini SP (with the weights and springs in the frame at the muzzle) now illegal? does this include mercury filled recoil rods? muzzle weights? built in compensators such as on the LP1/10?
the new rule seems to be very ambiguous and too open to interpretation by judges/ other nefarious competitors.
So at Equipment Control we will now have to disassemble our firearms to prove that there are no illegal devices either built in nor attached.
Fun stuff... good luck with that and a 10 euro charge for a retest if the equipment needs to be modified and pass EC again... who gets the 10 euros???
