Background

I got this pistol back in the 1970s when I was collecting guns.  This is for the Olympic free pistol event where no support behind the wrist is allowed, but support at and in front of the wrist is allowed, hence the wrap around grips.  Fires 22 long rifle match ammo a single shot at a time.  It has a hair trigger.
In Fig 3 there are two levers, one opens the breach to change rounds and the other cocks the hair trigger.  Also there are two rear sight adjusting screws.

The suitcase came with foam that has turned into goo.  Still trying to figure out how to get a factory replacement (If you know, please let me know how).

Test Target

Hammerli 150 Free Pistol Test Target

Each model 150 pistol is shipped in a suitcase that includes the center of a test target shot at 50 meters (?).  There's just a small ragged hole in the center.

Cleaning Kit & Spare Parts

There's a hole in the stock directly behind the center-line of the barrel to allow the cleaning rod to get access to the rear of the barrel.
In the front of the wooden forend there's a cap screw to allow changing the weight that's inside the forend wood.
The front and rear blades for the sight can be changed so the blade width can be selected.
