William J. Thomes. The fuze is that functional subsystem of the ordnance system that actuates the warhead in the vicinity of the target and maintains the weapon in a safe condition during all prior phases of handling and launching.

All fuzing systems perform four basic functions: safing, arming, recognition or sensing of the target, and initia-tion of the warhead.

I was doing some dry fire practice today and I noticed that when I lock the bolt down the firing pin is released without me pulling the trigger.

Prior to this happening the first pull of the trigger was heavier than the subsequent pulls after the firing pin had been cocked for a few minutes. I am using a Timney trigger.Harmonization of aircraft fixed guns and sights.

If the reticle image becomes distorted or seems to move on a distant target when the eye is moved over the field of vision of the sight, a malfunction known as parallax is present.
