    Are ported barrels allowed in Olympic Trap? I seem to recall that was the case,
    but I don't know if the rule has changed, Chip Pitcairn

    As far as I know ported barrels are allowed in Olympic trench but ported chokes are not.

    Not sure, but I think they are allowed now. In the early 80s when I shot Bunker they were NOT allowed in competition, but I think the rules have been changed since then.

    neb- That is your opinion. The opinion of the shooters at the Olympics last Summer is different than yours. You should look up the shooting record of the gentleman pictured above.

    Oh... I think the rule is being enforced. If I wanted to port my barrels buy say... Angle port I would simply call up Perazzi USA and have them have Angle Port do the work. The rule says the ports must be done by the "Original Manufacturer" If Perazzi does it for you its legal. There was talk that barrels would have to be reproofed again after the work but thankfully that was rejected. The question about ported chokes is less clear. They are illegal in the UK as I understand but I have seen no other places where they have been rejected. I will be interesting to see how that are viewed in the run up to the London 2012 Olympics.

    From the ISSF Rule Book 2005 ed.

    Equipment Control

    The Jury must implement a program for inspecting guns and clothing.

    The Jury has the right to examine any item of the shooter's equipment including clothing.

    Compensators
    The addition of compensators and similar such devices fitted to gun barrels is permitted for skeet but prohibitted in Trap, Double Trap and Automatic Trap shooting.

    Ported Barrels
    Ported barrels are acceptable provided the shooter has them inspected by the Jury prior to the start of the competition and they are found to meet ISSF requirements.

    Dispersion Effect Changes
    No internal changes may be made which will give an extra or special dispersion effect, such as the inverse loading of components, crossing devices, etc.

    Translation. Compensated chokes are are permitted in skeet only. Difussion chokes are not permitted in any event. Ported barrels are permitted provided the Jury has inspected them and approves.

    The stickers that you see on the firearms in the pictures are from the Jury and placed on the gun after inspection. Each gun has a sticker placed on it prior to the competion by the Jury, and yes the do check them.

    Tom,

    Ported barrels are perfectly legal in the UK.


    Any exceptions to this would be due to specific discipline rules imposed by the governing body involved.


    Regards,

    Russell
