The world record remained at the 559 shot by Torsten Ullman in winning this event at the 1936 gold medal. Ullman was still competing and was in Helsinki, but finished 6th. Joe Benner, 1950 World Champion in rapid-fire pistol, had finished 4th in this event in London in 1948, losing out of the medals due to a tie-breaker. He made certain no tie-breaker was needed this time, winning fairly comfortably by three points over Ángel Léon (ESP).
