View Full Version : Undersee Speargun

I think I would like to put bands on this gun and use it.
It is 66" from the stock to the muzzle.
Any one have experience with "UNDERSEE" guns ?
The shaft seems to be 5/16 x 60" in diameter and length.
Is this thing usable, or would putting bands on it just be a waste of time ?
Any input appreciated.

don't overpower this gun the shaft drops onto the top of the tube when shot. too much power will cause shaft whip. Never seen this gun but all euro guns of this type do it. You may want to put on a track for the shaft to ride in and controll accuracy

The shaft seems to go through the muzzle then lays in three short "rail' sections.
They are not spaced equidistant, but are on the barrel under the shaft in the area of the yoke slots.
I wonder if this is a owner applied modification, they seem to be handmade.

Didn't see those in the original picture. If not the same level or straight they may do more harm than good. The other question is what kind of trigger mechanism does it have? If it is euro, the kind that pinches the shaft, extra power will make the trigger hard to pull.

Keys, the shaft has a notch at the bottom, all the way to the rear.
The trigger pull is smooth and light, no bands though, hence no real pressure on the sear ?

Undersee shoots a JBL shaft. You can get shafts just about anywhere.
I wouldn't be so sure of that. Biller shafts are in damn near every dive shop you go into. JBL shafts are out there, but not as common. Tackle Shack can order them but don't carry them regularly. I believe Ray Odor also has them.
I'm just saying because I used to shoot a JBL and had to call around a lot before I found spare shafts.

No need to be a smartass. Maybe JBL's are more available in Arkansas - but if it's anything like around here, spare shafts will be hard to find. Sorry if I offended you for stating the *****ing truth.

Dangerous, thanks for the heads up on the jbl shaft.
JBL, was the most popular here localy, however, Spearfishing Specialties has made big inroads to their territory.
The shops seem to stock the JBL450 magnum for those that aspire to go to the gulf.
But the spearfishing specialties smaller guns are stocked and are moving well.
Arkansas's Ouachita lake is 40,000 plus acres and this time of year thermocline is about 24 feet.
I plan to use the undersee gun in the Gulf off of Lousiana, next Spring / Summer.
I did the Google search you recomended, and got lots of good information.
Geeze this board is neat !
Thanks to all for the input.

Not bad, but I prefer "*****ing Old Bastard" personally.
OK, OK, we'll compromise. "Royal Old Bastard". Sound good? ;) :D
