Re: Book-compleat goggler--guy gilpatric

Well I have just found out that the "Compleat Goggler" is now out of copyright in Australia, so the gates are open for anyone to republish the book there. Also in the USA two more years and in 2020...

Re: Polespearing the shallows of Rye in April.

Great video, almost a primer on how to do it. The shots of fish up close while you approach and then dive down to stick them are a wonderful piece of thoughtful film-making, if I can use that term...

Re: Any kind of trigger mechanism for a sling spear?

Re: Trigger Mechanism Design Rules

Jack Prodanovich said that the higher up on the sear tooth that the spear tail notch engaged it then the harder the trigger pull. That makes sense as the lever input length is longer. Usually we...

Re: Muzzle repair advice - wood gun

Brass screws can sometimes work as brass does not rust and the copper can poison any rot that may occur if water seeps in. Ideally bronze rather than brass as the latter has zinc rather than tin in...

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

Yes, wet and expanding timber could crack the sockets, and I have seen that white streak that you are referring to on a few guns where plastic parts had been forced over a slightly oversize...

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

The plastic used seems to be hard and shiny as you say, I am wondering how it will hold up as the metal extrusion was a very tight fit in the sockets. I found that it needed a big push to seat the...

Re: Trigger Mechanism Design Rules

With this one I may have to, but the answers lie in the geometry, assuming that it is made of the right stuff, which I am sure that it is. The US square cut spear tail probably works because the...

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

Yes Kevin, they copied the original version. The V2 was a disaster as the levers were way too skinny and the V3 was introduced to make amends by making everything that much larger, in fact they may...

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

And this was why they wanted to use that tip as they had already copied it, but apparently they had never seen the Sea Hornet fish extractor tip.

Re: Has anyone worked on developing speargun sights?

Whether they are effective or not if the price of green lasers keeps falling then I would think it was inevitable that someone would offer a sighting system at a competitive price, or it may be a...

Re: Has anyone worked on developing speargun sights?

There is a band gun muzzle flashlight that could be converted to mounting a laser and that is the TWILIGHT Muzzle. Similarly there are places in a pneumatic gun nose cone that could mount a laser, or...

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

In order to keep everything relevant on the one thread this is the dismantling procedure from that earlier thread.

Re: Has anyone worked on developing speargun sights?

Re: Has anyone worked on developing speargun sights?

That looks like a great system Joe, but the reality is this laser sight system is priced at around the cost of most spearguns which run from $300 to $600 for most popular models. When I can buy a...

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

I think if you buy one of these Chinese replica guns then for peace of mind buy a genuine “Sea Hornet” trigger mechanism from Kevin and swap it over. The best and last version of the “Sea Hornet”...

Re: SEA HORNET Clone from CHINA!!

Thanks for the advice, yes those spring end locating notches will need a more positive hold if the spring is shortened. How the “Sea Hornet” mech is usually assembled is you place the two levers in...
