Re: Omer discontinue their pneumatic guns

One way to remember to swing the line release lever back on these "Airbalete" family guns is to apply the safety lever after a shot and the victim has been collected and dispatched. This is because...

Re: Omer Cayman 90 Band Question

This is the Omer range that use screw in muzzles for the Cayman handle. Either 16 mm or 18 mm, although a 16.5 mm is listed for one model, but not shown in the spares listing (from the 2020 catalog).

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

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

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

Re: Omer discontinue their pneumatic guns
