Can anybody help me?
« on: July 04, 2005, 10:24:09 AM »
I am currently studying for my post graduate degree in forensic science at the university of teesside, UK, and am undertaking a final project in the area of firearms.
My specific study area is the trajectory of cartridge cases from semi-automatic weapons, specifically 'glock 17' and 'sig p226'.
It has been very difficult to get any information on the above topic and would appreciate it if anybody could help to point me in the right direction.

thank-you for your time

Our firearm section would be able to supply you digital videos of these two firearms being fired, documenting on the same videos where the fired cartridge cases land.   Please reply to

Have you asked your local Police firearms unit, they should be equipped with Glocks and may be able to help you with SIG's as well.

Even if its only so you can measure heights and distances for ejected cases, It may prove helpful.

Just a question: doesn't the cartridge load affect the case ejection trajectory? (standard vs +P vs +P+)
