Re: Dyneema shooting line for roller?

Should be OK, I always use two line wraps, you only need to be concerned if you shoot a lot more. I have shot three wraps on some guns with the horsepower to haul the line to the target and skewer...

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

The C4 orange plastic rear grip sections can be purchased separately, so they can be modified by scoring or grooving if you don't want to work on the original grips of which you get two anyway, one...

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

There was this one from Imersion/Esclapez, but I doubt that it was ever that successful. There were some guns that packed out the grip handle scales....

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

Even if the gun moves rearwards a half inch on its handle then the energy loss would be negligible on the shot and any extra compressive element in the handle would move far less than that. The jerk...

Re: New C4 Gladius speargun

I wonder if the C4 handle structure could be modified for a recoil absorber by replacing the nylon spacers with a thick rubber block that filled the gap rather than a pile of nylon washers as they...

Re: JBL Woody Magnum Won't Load

The older Woody Magnum's levers can catch on the ribbed inner cheeks inside the plastic handle frame. If you place thin wishers in there then this provides a smooth surfaces for the levers to...

Re: Most used speargun length

Gun length depends on the circumstances, water clarity and depth, size of the prey and if there is anything behind them. From shore or over the side of the boat, big guns for the latter, not so big...

Re: Remove AR grip

Looks like the Phillips head has cammed out which happens when you use the wrong size bit. If the screws are epoxied in you have big problems. Drilling screws out that are in wood is a recipe for...

Re: Omer discontinue their pneumatic guns

Interestingly at one time early "Airbalete" guns had a return spring on the line release lever, but it was later deleted. Possibly the spring was weak and useless, or too strong, particularly as with...
