    As dave say's our shoot will be held at redfearns.:) the reason for this when we got the land we had to level it to make it usable and the natural growth has yet to come back so parking cars etc will turn it in to a mud fest so we,ve made this decision now rather than later so that trev can arrange another venue , so thanks to Trev and redfearns for helping us out i know it will be a great shoot :)

    Lock-time measuring, please help me

    I'm doing a little test series to see the lock-time of different rifle types.

    The measuring is very short and simple, you shoot 2-3 at a target at 15 yards, while I'm recording this with a microphone.

    From the sound file then I can see the total time very precisely. From your pellet type and velocity we know the time what the pellet flies between the muzzle and target, and from the distance we know how much time is while the sound comes back to the microphone. So from all of these I can calculate the time from releasing of trigger to the moment when the pellet leaves the rifle.

    If you would like to know your rifle's lock time or just want to help me to build an overall information base, especially if you have got a not too common type of rifle, please find me at the zero range during the first session tomorrow morning. PCP and springer rifles both are welcome. I'll publish the results here in the STB forum.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Many thanks for everybody who has been so kind to lend his/her rifle for the lock-time test, I have tested a lot of rifles: FWB, Steyr, AA (PCPs and springers), Daystate, Walther, Anschütz, Ripley and Weihrauch. Sadly the only Zenith could not be tested.

    Results coming soon...

    A few questions to the mates:
    - With the Steyr: which model was it, LG100 or LG110?
    - Anybody from Redfearns: who has a precise laser distometer and will be out in the next days, could be so kind to tell me the two distances shown with red on the photo below? (Somebody shot the wrong target...)

    Thank you in advance,
    András

    Thanks for the Steyr info.
    Sadly, every 5 cm difference in range means 8-10% difference in lock time so I need both distances very precisely in cm...
