The Dreamair e-shop website has never been up since a short time after the project started when it contained the initial photos and loading graphs demonstrating the CVT system effects. You can send a message on the Facebook page to buy a gun which are more or less made to order. The 100 cm gun with a single alloy barrel buried inside the carbon fibre stock is 950 euro when I last looked, but you will need to ask. To that you need to add the shipping. The “Dreamloader” comes with the “Dreamair” gun and is not available separately as I just found out. The hand pump and pressure gauge come with the gun as they are both threaded for the inlet port located underneath the muzzle. Eventually there will be an aluminium body “Dreamair” model similar to the initial guns seen in the early photos, but right now it is only the carbon fibre body version.So are thee guns or loaders available for sale? Don't to seem to find any actual sales information. The site link shown on their facebook page is down.
The above quote was from 2016 for the aluminium body tube gun. The current all carbon fibre body gun weighs about 2.1 kg and is a 100 cm model weighed without the spear; both carbon fibre versions of the gun weigh about the same. Compare this with a C4 Urukay 120 cm at 2.57 kg with no spear and no bands, although it has a reel as standard. More mass in a gun results in less recoil, however you have to carry it before entering the dive location, hopefully it is only a short distance to the boat. Shore diving can mean trudging along a beach heading for the rocks, so you need to take into account the weight of the weapons that you will be carrying.Some information supplied by the "Infinitengines" Company concerning the current gun's physical dimensions.
The size of the "Dreamair" speargun is 110 cm (130 cm overall length). The dimensions of the oval barrel tube are 55 mm x 38 mm. (Note that a "standard" pneumatic gun, e.g. Mares "Sten", has a 40 mm OD tank tube with a 38 mm ID.) The weight of the gun without the spear is 1800 g and the gun can shoot spears from 6.5 mm to 8 mm in diameter with 150 cm length; spear shafts of a diameter larger than 8 mm can be used if a flotation element is added to the gun. The "Dreamair" speargun can be manufactured in various barrel lengths.
