Re: Riffe Euro trigger disassembly help

Thanks Matt. I got impatient and tried to remove the trigger group, but with the line release still in place it won't budge -- like you just said.

I have taken apart plenty of old shotgun and...

I have to shout-out for Matanzas Harborside restaurant -- they have hosted local spearfishing tournaments and lionfish derby, so they deserve recommendation. They have dockage and are located at foot...

Re: Marine Epoxy to bind butt back to teak?

Weldwood contact cement. The old-school stuff that comes in a small brown glass bottle. Hardware stores still sell it.

Re: Shooting line tangle Help!

I had line tangle issues with one gun, and what Mr. Allen just said about pulling the tail end of shooting line out to the side helped greatly. I think he mentioned it in a much older thread that I...

Re: Slip tip/shaft setup question

You can't just cut these shafts and put threads on them. They are hardened -- the hardening has to be removed, then the work done, then re-hardened.

Dean at Addiction Spears is doing some of that...

Re: Magnets in an open track gun?

If there's access at the front like that...it doesn't need a very large/heavy magnet. There are different grades of rare-earth magnet. The strongest is N52. Check that website and you'll see it...

Re: Band dilemma

Are you free diving those nearshore reefs or scuba? If scuba, then the simplicity of single band pays off in this murk. I hate dealing with 2 bands on the bottom in our viz that's usually under 10...

Re: Magnets in an open track gun?

I found small diameter 3/16"x 1/4" long (down to 1/8 long) at K&J Magnetics.
They list magnetic strength for all. I bought a few sizes and experimented -- 2x 1/4 inch long stacked on each other had...

recommend 5/8 small ID setup?

I've just done the 14mm small-ID setup recommended here for a Riffe 120, and it turned out very well at 360%.

My son picked up an Impaler that needs new bands. It has 3x 5/8 bands @ 360%, don't...

Re: Ogive vs pencil point

I think it may be a Sandvik (sp?) stainless shaft, which I recall is supposed to be harder than 17-4. The number 52 Rc comes to mind... Can't see in the photo, but it is a much brighter and more...

Re: Ogive vs pencil point

Thanks. I don't have a lathe but will try to touch it up. Need a better file -- the one I tried a while back just slid off, wouldn't bite. Cheers.

Re: Moving to the keys from AK

Hey K1 I tried to send you a PM but not sure that it went out -- doesn't show in my SENT folder. If you don't see it I guess let me know and will follow up.

Re: Moving to the keys from AK

Where in AK? I spent time working in southeast and will never forget a one-per-person ANNUAL limit on yellow eye. Phenomenal fish.

I can't help much with where, but here's heads-up regarding regs....
