Summary

Finland’s Väinö Markkanen equaled the Olympic record of 560 to win the gold medal in the free pistol. Second-place Franklin Green of the United States used a Hammerli pistol with an electric trigger of his own design, with Remington ammunition. In a shoot-off with East German Johann Garrels, Yoshihisa Yoshikawa of Japan repeated as bronze medalist. His medals were especially noteworthy as Japanese citizens could not legally possess handguns in 1964.
