View Full Version : Need Help Mounting Spare Shaft Holder on Rhino
01-03-2003, 02:27 PM
I purchased a spare shaft holder from SS along with a stinger lineshaft. I have a SS Standard Rhino 52" gun. I went to mount the holders and was a bit confused about the fit. I assume I need to mount the spare on the left side of the gun to avoid the safety mechanism. When I tested it there it seemed the point end of the shaft was right against where the bands would be when the gun is loaded.
Any insight on how to mount this? Is there enough freespace from the bands so that it won't cause any problems? I looked on Kevin's site, but didn't see any pictures of the spare shaft holder mounted to a gun.

Send an IM to SpearOne. I think he knows the guy that makes those guns!;)

Thanks Rich, I know that Kevin would be able to help. I just thought I might not be the only one with this question. Also, many Spearboard.com members use SS guns and their experience with using the guns with a spare shaft is valuable.

Had the same problem. I angled the front holder of the shaft holder a little bit down from the one in the back and the shaft cleared the bands. A little clearance is all that is needed.
Another suggestion, is to take it where you got it and have them help you. My shop in St. Pete helped out and they didn't charge me for advice or support. Also they said you could mount it on either side, or if you're really an optimistic shooter, you can mount one on each side.

optomistic? losing two shafts is not optomistic. that's just expensive!

Thanks guys. I spoke with Kevin today and he provided me with the step by step instructions. As expected, it was easy to do. I was just concerned that the clearance wasn't right. With the confidence that Kevin provided I was able to get it done rather quickly.
Thanks so much to Kevin for backing his products with excellent support. I am very happy that I purchased a Spearfishing Specialties product and suggest that anybody looking for a gun buy one.
