I finally got to see one of these guns “in the metal” rather than just look at one in photos and I can now tell you that its “Quasimodo” looks are not so apparent when you are holding the gun. The rear grip handle does kick up at the back, but this is not the “banana effect” being disguised. What it does do is place the centre of grip pressure up high on the gun and not that far below the axis of the inner barrel tube. In fact the molding of the rear handle body deliberately angles upwards for this purpose. The muzzle has long and narrow rectangular muzzle relief ports with round holes forwards of them in the nose of the gun to enable a rod to be used to unscrew the muzzle. It is pretty clear that the “Saetta” pneumatic speargun is a further development of the ideas used in the very long lived Cressi-Sub "SL" or "Superleggero" (Superlight) pneumatic speargun which has been around for as long as I can remember once Mares released their “Sten” series.
