View Full Version : Need Big Time Help!!!

Hey guys, I really need some info, and I thought that here would be the best place to start inquiring. My brother in law, just bought a pnumatic speargun online....I wish he would have talked to me first, but whats done is done. He is pretty new to diving and he has not busted his cherry shooting at fish. Well anyhow, he has a Tigullio 90 model of speargun. I have never used a pneumatic and I was lookking at the thing, it is brand new, but with no instructions saying anything of help really. I found where to pump the air into the handle, I have no friggin idea on how many shots its good for, or how many pumps a guy would have to pump it up to. It has two switches on the handle, one for the safety, and I don't know what the other is for. If any of you can give me ANY advice on this particular brand of gun, or pneumatic guns in general, I would sure appreciate it. I can't seem to find any usefull info off the web searches that I have done.

I have a couple of links on my computer at the office that I'll pass on to you on Monday.

You don't pump up the cylinder unless it loses pressure (which may not happen for years). Your gun may be good for a thousand shots without pumping it up.

I think it is a hi/low power switch ( I haven't read up on pneumatics for about a year)

Hopefully Stone can point you in the right direction to maybe get an owner's manual, because that's the only way I can see taking proper care of this particular gun. I agree, I think the second switch is a hi/low switch.
As far as # of pumps go to pressurize it, I would imagine that that is something that can vary a lot between guns. I also think it's possible to damage the gun if you pump it up too much. I'd be careful pumping it up.
That's all I know. I used to have a pneumatic gun and this is one of the many reasons I switched to band guns. Maintenance and care is much easier!

Here's a link to a site that has a short blurb on pneumatics:

This looks like the US rep's website for this line. I think you may need to fill out the request info link since they don't have any info on spearguns on this site.
