They call them Chrono Coffins....
I am waiting for some variant for autoloading pistols. This will be amazing when it happens.
I saw a custom setup on their site http://www.magnetospeed.com/pages/custom
that is designed for testing across multiple rifles in a ballistic lab allowing for various barrel diameters. For an autoloading pistol this type of setup could be adapted to present the bayo at the correct distance below the muzzle of a pistol mounted on a rest. I have very few semiauto pistols so there is no impetus for me to cobble one together. It would be a fun project for someone with an aptitude for mechanical adaptation. P.S.: You can never have too many C clamps.
