This TOP describes methods to determine the dynamic performance of selected weapon components to aid in correcting design problems. This is done by a recording the displacement of gun components relative to time and distance through the use of high-speed video HSV or other means, and b measuring the impulse and recoil of small-caliber weapons by a laser displacement measurement system, HSV, displacement transducers, or other means.
