Re: New speargun

I am going to try the second pin as my prevoius gun was fail , the 1/8 distance from trigger is very small and not give enough strength .

Re: New speargun

reinforce your build with carbon/kevlar laminations, not only will it protect the wood but it will reinforce it as well.

Re: New speargun

Long sleeve, respirator and about 3-4 layers of gloves. I would try to cut the carbon in an open environment and the lamination part in a well vented place.

Re: New speargun

Looking good!!! I like the paint job.

How thick of shaft are you using to need so much wood? From here it looks like (unless you are using a VERY dense wood)... that you could do with a lot less wood in the stock.

I have two semi-identical guns now in the works (one for me, one for my 10 year old daugther), I will try to post some pictures soon. I still need to prepare the trigger guards and rig them.
