Electromechanical trigger – working circuit

Wow, it works! Relatively fast recharge time. Nice.
UPDATE: Current project costs — about 450 €.
Next aim: debugging and prepare compact working prototype (as Steyr Electronic).

Start of the season

Nice Geco pistol ammo (2,40 € / 50 rounds). I hope it will be enough till October. I also have some C25 and Federal. And the main thing is that lack of motivation never was a problem for me.
I have already had one rapid fire pistol training session and igorex is OK. The important rule is – don’t lost concentration and no matter what pistol you have. Igorex will not help me in concentration – 100%, but helps with faster pistol/sights recovery.

Electromechanical trigger – part 2

Coming back to our prototype for electromechanical trigger for TOZ-35 free pistol I want to say that I use holidays with profit and I’ve finally found time to continue.
Today I have finished the second important part – adjustable impulse generator. Adjustable, I mean, we can control how long the voltage is applied to a solenoid. One more good news – if later strain gauge will not prove its right for existence we can replace this part with usual switch button (all modern sport electromechanical triggers based on switch buttons).
