Mark-10 was called upon to develop a custom solution for this problem. Our engineers worked closely with the NYPD to design and produce a customized firearm test stand for NYPD’s evaluation.
The test stand accommodates a variety of gun types and sizes, and measures trigger forces in a controlled manner. The test results are now more repeatable, can be transmitted to a PC for a more detailed view with statistics instead of a simple pass/fail indication.
Through trigger pull force testing, an extra bit of gun safety is introduced into one of the world’s busiest police departments, helping avoid unintended discharge, and saving lives in the process.
