Crossword Genius

Sword gets record points (4)


I believe the answer is:


'sword' is the definition.
(sword used in fencing)

'record points' is the wordplay.
'record' becomes 'EP' (abbreviation for extended play record).
'points' becomes 'ee'.

'gets' is the link.

(Other definitions for epee that I've seen before include "Duelling weapon" , "piece of fencing" , "Fencer's sword" , "Sharp-pointed duelling sword" , "Type of sword" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
