Alcedo spearguns possible info.

Hi. I did a search on Google for alcedo spearguns and ended up here. I have been using these guns since I was around 13 maybe even earlier which was back around 1974. I may be able to help anyone after some info on these guns. First time I have been on this sight so am still trying to work out how it works.

Re: Alcedo spearguns possible info.

There is a lot of info here https://forums.deeperblue.com/thread...tic-gun.96940/ including parts diagrams, the instruction manuals and how the guns operate. All three versions are shown, the Hydra, the Hydra II and the Sprint 62 which was the last version. (shown below)

Welcome Pete,

I guess the Alcedo guns are the ones with the rubber bladder inside the alu housing. If so, perhaps you can tell us a bit about how you have used these guns over the years but also how you have kept them alive - especially the proprietary rubber parts - this long? Did you stock up on spare parts decades ago and keep them in a special controlled environment lab...?;-)

Feel free to do it here or perhaps even better to add your real world user's perspective in that thread that Pete linked to in the post above. I know it's a bit unorthodox and perhaps unfair to "poach" you and have you go through the hassle of signing up on another forum but the forum in that link honestly has a much wider user baser of spearos using pnematic guns. It may be because there are many more Europeans on that forum. No matter what, it is definitely the go to place for everything pneumatic.

Either way, welcome again!
