To those shopping thru internet or mail order or do not have plenty of guns stores ( like my area to see various models).
This is a rough guide for size comparison of some guns. Catalog can't show size perspective between other brands.

From Left to right :

Mares 850, Picasso 90 something, Mares 90, Riffe Standard #2 without wing and with wing kit, Riffe Hawaiian, Riffe No Ka Oi with reel, Riffe Standard #4 with wing kit (155cm ), Collins Medium Reef, JBL Woody Magnum and AB Miller 48 Special.

To those wanting to see mid handle grip position, this is a good comparison side by side against a rear handle.

Riffe #4 and Collins have the thickest stock, can't see in photo well.

I will venture a guess that these are the guns left on the boat while the spearo's are using their railguns rofl

But I'm a pneumatic guy. MARES 100 for spare and a nice SEAC SUB 115 my baby!!!!!! But hey you have a very nice arsenal buddy!!!!!!! I like all those RIFFES do you have stock in RIFFE.....lol:D rofl
He he he he.
These are not all mine, they belong to my gang. I don't want any of the guns......no thanks.....the yacht I WANT !!!!...wha ha ha ha:D :D

The Mares pneumatic and Mares single band are mine and 2 other Riffes. My old JBL have rotten to death.

Look at the JBL Woody Magnum black color pistol grip, that is the new version hopefuly does not have the weakness of the older dark brown version.

I am still waiting for a RA railgun......but it never arrive...cause I have not buy one yet...he he he he.

GEO, How do I access info on the SEAC SUB ? I sure want another pneu with more power for collection. Tell me more about it, what is the effective range say if I hit a 10kg Giant Trevally at the gill ?
