I put that way instead of as a Beuchat reel should be on a Beuchat gun, because it gives the gun better lateral mobility;
but what most increases this mobility is the fact the shooting is right against the gun

Is the barrel covered in inner tube rubber?
The pics are good but can you include a little more detail with the photos?
It just helps when you know what you are looking at.

mainly 3 modifications:
-the head from which I've sawn of most of it's parts so that the shaft and the shooting line doesn't get slowed down
-the shooting line that I've maintained against the barrel by two bits of rubber from an old rubber band (I've glued these bits on the rubber coating of the barrel) to win a lot of lateral mobility, and so that the shooting line doesn't get caught on rocks during an aspetto, while moving the gun
-the reel against the barrel, facing the bottom instead of facing the sides; it also enables me to use the "ergot escamotable"(sorry, dunno the word in english, it's the tiny plastic hook in front of the trigger, and that retracts during the shoot to free the line); its a better system than the 'crocodile jaw system' on both sides of the handle, freeing the shooting line whith much less resistance

in something still isn't clear, please tell me; cause I find the gun the way I've modified it much better than before, and maybe even easier to load
