Are stabiizers legal in BE shooting



Log in to see fewer ads
I being a shaky 75 year old have come up with a partial solution by putting a stabilizer on my mk.3. It attaches to the grip below the hand and does not contact
the body or arm. It is aprox. 14" and has a 5 ounce weight at the end. It has improved my score by 10% and my team captain thinks it is legal and my research does not find any rule against it. Does anyone know otherwise.
TIA-Stew

BE shooting

It's Bullseye Shooting. Sorry for the shorthand but many on this forum either participate or have heard of it. Many clubs have matches and there are leagues
all over. Locally (Hbg.PA) we have 10 teams and a match consists of 6 targets, 2slow, 2 timed and 2 rapid.

Reminds me of this:

"Target pistols

Aside from special temporary exemptions for major events such as the 2012 Olympics, pistol shooting for sporting purposes has been effectively banned since 1997. As a result, the GB pistol squad has to practise abroad.[30]

A few models of single-shot .22 calibre free pistol, as used in the 50 m Olympic 'Free Pistol' match, have been produced to meet the "long-barrelled pistol" conditions. Some free pistols have removable stabiliser bars extending backwards to improve stability; the UK-legal models have been made with non-removable stabilisers to extend the dimensions, instead of contrived and non-functional grip extensions. Examples are the single-shot Pardini K22 Longarm[31] and the Westlake Britarms Long Pistol, a permitted .22 LR five-shot semi-automatic pistol.[32]"
