I was wondering what you guys think of the Beuchat handles with the trigger mech? I was told that it is one of the best in the world when it comes to euro guns but I am not sure what to believe since the person that told me this is a Beuchat rep. He told me that he has loaded two 20 mm bands on his 115 cm carbon mundial with no prob and that he has used a 16 mm and a 20 mm with no prob either. The reason I ask is because I am thinking of putting together a gun using the Rob Allen barrel, and muzzle but use the Beuchat handle and trigger mech. What I hate the most about the RA guns is that they don't have the loading pad thing on the back like the Omer or Beuchat guns. I don't wear a wet suit when I dive here in Miami so I'm thinking that the RA is going to kill my chest without a loading pad on the back of the gun or a wetsuit. Do any of you know the diameter of the RA barrels? I know that the Beuchat handle is made for 28 mm barrels but I don't know if it will work on a RA barrel. I would just buy a Riffe or an Omer but I just bought a boat and I'll be spending almost all of my money getting it ready how I want it. How much range would a 120 cm RA gun with twin 16 mm bands have?

Gun handle

Hi Goblin,

Try contacting Florida Freedivers (floridafreedivers.net) I believe they now have a loading butt (oh boy) that goes on the RA handle and they should be able to help you with the barrel diameter question. Regarding finding a strong euro handle, I have heard that the OMER MB style handle is quite strong, Mark at technosport can give you the scoop on this handle.

Good luck, Guy:)
