Summary

The world record for this event was 1,149, set by Klaus Zähringer (GER) while winning the 1959 European Championships in Milano. Zähringer’s mark broke the record of 1,148 set by Viktor Shamburkin (URS) in winning the 1958 World Championships over his teammate, Marat Niyazov. All competed in Rome, with Shamburkin winning the gold medal with Niyazov finishing second, and Zähringer taking the bronze medal. Shamburkin equaled the world record in winning the gold medal. Niyazov was briefly thought to be the winner, scoring 1,145 with to Shamburkin’s 1,141. Then it was announced that Shamburkin’s score was incorrect, and 8 points were added. The weather conditions were difficult, causing Niyazov to take 60 minutes to complete his last series. Ammo for this event had to be available on the normal market, and cost less than $30 (US) per 1000 rounds. The target was smaller than in 1956.
