Re: Trigger safeties: To have or not to have

The "Sea Hornet" and "AB Biller" have them built-in because they are part of the sear box. When spearguns were built around cast alloy clamshell handles the safeties were always built-in, and that...

Re: Trigger safeties: To have or not to have

You can forget about any patent as there are already variations on this idea both before and after the Glock. There is the problem that when a speargun trigger mechanism relatches it pushes the...

Re: Thread Insert for Wood

Basically it is if the reel has to come off on a regular basis. My guns all use long screw woodscrews, or bolts, but I never have to remove the reels, so they are undisturbed. Actually bronze works...

Re: Trigger Mechanism Design Rules

Maybe that last sentence would be of interest to Spear One (Kevin) as he sold his “Ocean Rhino” guns in Florida for lineshafting and freeshafting that were based on the “Sea Hornet” guns, but with...

Re: Trigger Mechanism Design Rules

The Biller is designed to do a certain job and the levers are adequate for the task required on what is basically a light to medium gun. It is only scary if you don't understand why it is built that...

Re: Neptonics UHMW Enclosed Track inserts

Unless you are shooting from an upside down position gravity keeps the shaft in the gun's open track, the muzzle hoop just keeps the spear from falling off the gun when it is being held at other than...

Re: Neptonics UHMW Enclosed Track inserts

Yes, the enclosed track is really for multi-band monsters that are mid-handle ballasted logs with six or more fat bands blasting 8 and 9 mm shafts out to long range. Not your average general purpose...

Re: Neptonics UHMW Enclosed Track inserts

If you want to eliminate the line wrap muzzle then just use a muzzle hoop. That used to be the norm before pin wrap muzzles ever came on the scene. An open track and a muzzle hoop work OK, in fact...

Re: Sea Snip Dive Scissors

The new Tullen cutters arrived today and are a bit larger than I thought that they would be from the photos. The green plastic handles are a new design, but something about them seemed different in...

Let us hope marketing does not outweigh all other considerations.

Re: Sigalsub CF 110 speargun test

I can add that my brand new C4 "Urukay" has traces of that white grease around the trigger mechanism and it's fixing screws, so C4 definitely use it to put the gun together.

Re: Trigger safeties: To have or not to have

After studying firearm safety devices it seems to me that one could be added to speargun trigger mechanisms which would function much like the Glock pistol trigger safety does. Instead of a moving...

Re: Alemanni Travel Gun (cable rollergun)

I never realized that Omer had gone to Aqualung which is US Divers. That is very odd as many years ago US Divers swore off spearfishing and quit selling spearguns such as the iconic “Sea Hunter”...

Re: Pneumatic speargun question

After all this time he has probably made a decision by now, but that assist band with a hook does improve your reach on longer guns.

Re: Neptonics UHMW Enclosed Track inserts

Enclosed tracks are shaft whip suppressors so they cost you some energy by the guns being less efficient. The bending shaft rubs on the track which serves as a sort of dynamic splint. To gain...

Re: Alemanni Travel Gun (cable rollergun)

What were the sales like compared to the other models? Was any model more popular than the others, or was price a factor as I expect that the "Joker" was more expensive to produce.

Re: Alemanni Travel Gun (cable rollergun)

The "Joker" could have been used to design a two-piece travel gun, but the forward section would probably need some buoyancy as I don’t know if the moveable front part of the "Joker" was solid. As...

Re: Alemanni Travel Gun (cable rollergun)

When you pulled the muzzle section out of the "Joker" how much did it shorten the length of the gun? C4 have discontinued the "Joker", but maybe they should have made it to be more of a travel gun...
