(5) poor most stressed parts of small arms in accordance with para 4 are however special written request not useless, if the submitter at the same time, to keep them just for decoration purposes or because their art - collecting value. On these parts, the mark referred to in section 19 are 2 and 4 Z 6 in all cases para as well as install and the submitter the reason of default in writing to announce.

Final attack

Are handguns and highly stressed parts of handguns that do not reset in accordance with § 13, § 14 (1) to undergo the final bombardment.

(2) the final attack is to manufacture small arms making. Handguns, requiring even the burnishing or an engraving (white finished handguns), apply as complete handguns. Highly stressed parts of small arms are to assemble by adding missing components to a finished hand gun by the submitter. A handgun is assembled by pass work which is already bombarded highly stressed parts of handguns, the finished weapon is also to undergo the final bombardment. Pass work refers to any work performed on a highly loaded part of a handgun, which could change its strength.

(3) a completed hand gun is then to submit with the crowning, if specified parts of small arms fire element in article 11, paragraph 1; at all other handguns an Ersatzschaft or a suitable equivalent device can take the place of the original shaft.

(4) in a multi-barreled handguns each run is to undergo the final fire each cartridge Chamber of the barrel revolvers.

(5) handgun with smooth runs the final bombardment is basically independent of the kind of chokes; should the manufacturer but limit a maximum-choke for the use of steel shot cartridge on a certain size of the choke in the owner's manual, the fire with this is making. The final attack is carried out in the following four ways:



1 are normal attack with small arms, in which the warehouse depth is less than 73 mm and intended to fire cartridges, whose medium-sized gas pressure does not exceed the following values: a) 740 bar for the caliber of 14 and beyond.

(b) 780 bar for caliber 16;

(c) 830 bar for the caliber of 20 and below;

2. increased shelling (on request) for handguns, which the warehouse depth is less than 73 mm and intended firing of high-performance cartridges are, their average gas pressure exceeds the values referred to in subpara 1 each and can amount to a maximum of 1050 bar;

3. reinforced fire with small arms, in which the warehouse depth is equal to or greater than 73 mm;

4. steel shotgun fire are for handguns, which determines the Patronenprüfordnung 2013 to fire cartridges with lead-free crushing of types B and C in accordance with article 13, paragraph 1; the steel shotgun attack includes increased shelling according to no. 2 and no. 3.

(6) the final attack is run with fire cartridges, which correspond to the provisions of the Patronenprüfordnung in 2013. The fire cartridges are be stored at for at least 24 hours a temperature of 21 ° C 1 ° C before the final attack.

(7) the final attack is done per barrel by the firing of



1 two fire cartridges in a) handguns with rifled barrels, b) pistols regardless of the gas pressure of use ammunition, c) handguns, the kinetic energy is specified for each case under consideration, stated in section 58 ON rules instead of the gas pressure, d) handguns with smooth barrels for shotgun shells;

2. two fire cartridges for handguns with smooth barrels, except small arms in accordance with subpara 1 lit. d, if both cartridges 2013 at the same time meet the conditions of the measuring point 1 and 2 in accordance with the provisions of Patronenprüfordnung, otherwise but with two fire cartridges, which meet the conditions of the measuring point 1, in addition a fire cartridge, which complies with the conditions of the measuring point 2;

3. a fire cartridge per cartridge revolvers and with handguns, which course not with the cartridge Chamber

4. three fire cartridges in accordance with § 16 par. 2 of the Patronenprüfordnung 2013 are for handguns with smooth runs that determines the Patronenprüfordnung of 2013 to fire cartridges with lead-free crushing of types B and C in accordance with article 13, paragraph 1.

(8) upon request of the Office of the fire are this ready-fire cartridges in unopened original packaging or suitable use cartridges or tubes and the heaviest in use bullets to to provide.

(9) a reason to believe that the fire cartridge was faulty, so the fire Office the number prescribed in paragraph 7 of cartridges has also to make a further bombardment.

Check after the end

The handguns and highly stressed parts of handguns of a renewed fire official control are § 15 (1) after the final bombardment to undergo; for this purpose, the provisions of § apply § 11 and 12 par. 3 and 4.

(2) can be the result of the fire test to the slightest doubt about the durability of the handgun or highly stressed component a handgun or have doubts as to the existence of damage or failure in accordance with article 16, paragraph 1, or if you found a defect on the sleeve of a downed attack cartridge so the fire Office about that in § 14 paragraph 7 has further shots with bombardment ammunition to submit prescribed number of cartridges; a malfunction is suspected, then use ammunition is to use.

(3) malfunctions occur during the fire test of Handgun cartridges with small shot, the reliability is in addition by the firing of five use cartridges with small shot with handguns with a single Chamber or by two to check use cartridges with small shot for each cartridge bearings in the drum. It is to check whether the handgun is properly and that the barrel is not obstructed. If determined that the barrel is blocked, this is for a repeat test to clean completely, which can be done with twice the number of use cartridges with small shot.
