Re: PVC tube travel speargun

Thanks again for all of the suggestions. I think I'll stick to my original plan and put together a 110 that I can pull apart. And I hear your concern about them loosening up eventually, Pete. I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

That's actually not a bad idea AEgir. If I pick it apart anyway might as well buy components...

I'll post it when I'm done in a month or so.

Re: PVC tube travel speargun

The ARC 2000 handle made by Champion/Beuchat has been copied by many and is a socket mount handle rather than a boss mount, you can find them here. http://www.speargun.com.au/

There are a bunch of other gun parts once you decide on a barrel.

and this is what the gun was originally designed as (see attachment).

Anyone used the regular MVD predators?
how big of fish are you taking down? If the shaft is not breaking down, you're not saving any real length on the luggage just by taking the handle/muzzle off: the spear is always as long or longer than the gun. I have a dyi break down 105cm pipe gun with a break down 120cm cressi spear that's been all over the world taken down up to 4' cudas. They make these spears bigger now too. Unless you're fighting some monster cuberas or groupers, i think you'll be ok. Accuracy never been an issue either.
