Re: Making speargun. Please help

Considering the fish you Hunt I would recommend a 120cm gun with a 140-150cm shaft (spear) the rest is really up to you friend

Re: Making speargun. Please help

Wood - teak wood is best
Length - 150cm (this would be for a 160cm length x 7mm diameter spear)
Width - 5cm
Trigger mechanism - because of your location, I recommend finding a "Euro" (European style trigger mechanism). I assume that it would be difficult to obtain parts from the US.

Re: Making speargun. Please help

I don't know how much work you want to do yourself, but you can get many of the parts from Neptonics. (there are ad banners on spearboard, or you can google it).
If you went that route, you would start by getting:
a speargun blank, (the wood for the body of the gun),
a mechanism, (the reef mechanism may be good for what you are building),
a handle, (several options to choose from),
bits and pieces, like a line anchor and line guide,
rigging, (muzzle bungee, rubbers, wishbone, mono or other shooting line)

Then, all you have to do is cut the right holes in the blank, shape the wood to your liking, and assemble everything.
------
Another option people have discussed in the past, which would be cheap and effective, but not nearly as pretty:

buy a mechanism and a muzzle for a JBL or AB biller metal gun.
The mech is the entire pistol grip handle with the trigger and everything inside. The "metal" version is round, where the wood guns, (at least for AB Biller), are square.
Next, buy a shower curtain rod that will fit over the parts you bought. Cut it to the size you need, based on the spear you want to use.
Buy the appropriate rigging, (as above).

Good luck,

Mike W

Re: Making speargun. Please help

In my opinion, your first mechanism pic is the best, but you will not be able to get it easily. Can you purchase online from USA? If yes, get this...

http://www.neptonicsystems.com/Euro%20Reef%20Mech.html

Again, I am assuming that getting Euro spears will be easier for you. If you want to use American spears, I recommend the Reverse Mechanism...

Re: Making speargun. Please help

Probably would be impossible to ship anything direct from the US. Your best bet is to buy a ready gun from Abu Dhabi or Dubai, or maybe try to contact Hayaari sub in Abu Dhabi as he makes some nice custom guns. I think he uses Neptonics triggers and parts, so he should be able to help you out with parts if you want to build your own. He posted here some time back
