Re: Pyle Watch Issue

When you say the temperature is off what are you comparing it to? The watch when on your wrist warms up, the best check is to leave it off in a room with an inside temperature meter such as the ones...

Re: Trigger safeties: To have or not to have

And here it is, must have been a tight squeeze and it has a short angular movement for "on" and "off" on the control lever, but is a good idea as it exploits the upper hook in the trigger for...

Re: Trigger safeties: To have or not to have

There is a safety that does not use a rotating cam and was developed by Jack Prodanovich for his single-piece trigger speargun. This safety device uses a revolving lever to project a transverse pin...

Re: Need Help! Older JBL Mini Magnum

After each use stick the gun end for end in a tub of water and get all the salt off it. That way it will stay looking good for years to come. About quarter of a hour will do and then dry it off in...

Re: Slip/detachable flopper modification.

If the hooks get bent or distorted then it (the flopper) will not lie flat on the shaft.

Re: Need Help! Older JBL Mini Magnum

You can look at the patent for that gun which is US3262441A. Here is the second page diagram that shows that muzzle. I think the shooting line does go around that curved ident in the front as JBL...

Re: "Spearfisherman Magnum" by Swimaster 1962

This is a catalogue page for the gun. This gun was Swimaster's attempt at replicating Jack Prodanovich's gun after he gave them a handle to copy. Unfortunately they blew it and stuffed it up...

"Spearfisherman Magnum" by Swimaster 1962

Here is an old "Spearfisherman Magnum" by Swimaster fully wrapped in black tape. Unfortunately I had to remove the tape to check out the trigger mechanism, there seemed to be yards of it and I had a...

Re: Trigger safeties: To have or not to have

If your gun has the standard trigger mechanism where the trigger hook is positioned at the rear end then it is very easy to use the rear pair of mounting holes on the sear box to hold the transverse...

Re: Trigger safeties: To have or not to have

Here is an interesting safety mechanism for a crossbow. Unlike a speargun a crossbow holds the bowstring, not the projectile, which is placed on the crossbow after the weapon is cocked. The...

Re: Trigger safeties: To have or not to have

The "Sea Hornet" and "AB Biller" have them built-in because they are part of the sear box. When spearguns were built around cast alloy clamshell handles the safeties were always built-in, and that...

Re: Trigger safeties: To have or not to have

You can forget about any patent as there are already variations on this idea both before and after the Glock. There is the problem that when a speargun trigger mechanism relatches it pushes the...

Re: Thread Insert for Wood

Basically it is if the reel has to come off on a regular basis. My guns all use long screw woodscrews, or bolts, but I never have to remove the reels, so they are undisturbed. Actually bronze works...

Re: Trigger Mechanism Design Rules

Maybe that last sentence would be of interest to Spear One (Kevin) as he sold his “Ocean Rhino” guns in Florida for lineshafting and freeshafting that were based on the “Sea Hornet” guns, but with...

Re: Trigger Mechanism Design Rules

The Biller is designed to do a certain job and the levers are adequate for the task required on what is basically a light to medium gun. It is only scary if you don't understand why it is built that...

Re: Neptonics UHMW Enclosed Track inserts

Unless you are shooting from an upside down position gravity keeps the shaft in the gun's open track, the muzzle hoop just keeps the spear from falling off the gun when it is being held at other than...

Re: Neptonics UHMW Enclosed Track inserts

Yes, the enclosed track is really for multi-band monsters that are mid-handle ballasted logs with six or more fat bands blasting 8 and 9 mm shafts out to long range. Not your average general purpose...

Re: Neptonics UHMW Enclosed Track inserts

If you want to eliminate the line wrap muzzle then just use a muzzle hoop. That used to be the norm before pin wrap muzzles ever came on the scene. An open track and a muzzle hoop work OK, in fact...

Re: Sigalsub CF 110 speargun test

I can add that my brand new C4 "Urukay" has traces of that white grease around the trigger mechanism and it's fixing screws, so C4 definitely use it to put the gun together.

Re: Trigger safeties: To have or not to have

After studying firearm safety devices it seems to me that one could be added to speargun trigger mechanisms which would function much like the Glock pistol trigger safety does. Instead of a moving...
