It refers to the p57, p58, and p61 guns posted in this thread. No true-period guns of these periods were known until last year.

Scorbie wrote:Statorless p5: A very notable thing of this discovery is that the oscillator is Strictly volatile. Strict volatility is a very tight restriction, with the only periods with strictly volatile oscillators being 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 13, 15, 22, 30, 33, and 177. The latest strictly volatile oscillator "seems to be" (confirmation needed) derived from 34P13 on 2009. This means that this discovery adds a new period in 7 years. This is also the second statorless oscillator of a prime period greater than 2. (The first being the 34P13 derivative.)
