The regulations for standardization of coilgun’s constructions are discussed by Russian coilgun-community.
The purposes of regulations:
1. To create the necessary prerequisites for possible realization of shooting competitions.
2. To create the necessary prerequisites for changing the legislation to accept coilguns as a sport weapon.
3. To direct researcher’s energies to increase projectile’s energy and speed by increasing of coilgun’s efficiency, not by simple extension of source capacitor’s energy.
4. To direct researcher’s energies to increase coilgun’s shooting accuracy.
5. To create more clear aims for coilgun’s researchers, like basic parameters of production devises and conditions of using.
After preliminary discussion the groups with limit of weight, capacitor’s initial energy and length of coilguns were suggested.
Moreover, the classification envisages division on pistols and rifles, dependent on keeping of coilgun in one or two hands.
The pistols (max initial_energy, weight and length):P1
– 125 J, 1 kg, 300 mm.P2
– 250 J, 2 kg, 350 mm.
The rifles (max initial_energy, weight and length):R3
– 250 J, 3 kg, 800 mm.R4
– 500 J, 4 kg, 1000 mm.R5
– 750 J, 5 kg, 1200 mm.R6
– 1000 J, 6 kg, 1200 mm.
In every group two kinds of exercises are supposed:
1 – shooting for accuracy.
The type of target: Olympic 10 Meter Air Pistol Target
See pdf-file with the target’s pictures 10m_air_pistol.pdf
(outer diameter of target is 155.5 mm).
Distance: 5 or 10 meters.
3 trial shoots and 10 examination shoots.
Total time of exercises - 20 minutes.
The result – the whole sum of points from 10 examination shoots.
2 – shooting for speed.
Targets – for example, some cigarettes boxes, which are standing in the line (see the picture).
It is necessary to knock down all targets as quickly as possible (it is one attempt). Concrete size and quantity of targets can be specified later.
For example, 5 or 10 targets on 5 or 10 meters distance.
One trial attempt and 3 (or 5) examination attempts of shoots.
The pause between attempts – one minute.
The result – total time of examination attempts.
