The barrel design looks very similar to the Acqua (Totemsub).

I like it. :D

Nice gun memo, i see that you put your choice to esperasub.

What did you paid it? With shaft, bands etc and without them?

Thanks for the compliments guys :D

Fuzz, I told the manufacturer I like the the design of totem pelagos :D so it comes with a design similar to it. the barrel has an eliptic cross section. I'll try to get some more pics to show you a clear view of it.

Murat, I need a small gun and you know I have that equipment obsession :D I go with the esperasub but I have 2 more orders still waiting for my return :D so who knows, the other woodies may be a different manufacturer. I paid a under 200euros for that setup which I think is worth every penny.

Have to agree its a looker, you must be pleased with it :)
Two questions please :wave
Why have you gone for the mixture of teak and mahogany? and with the gun having no top bit on the front end (sorry I dont know the proper names :eek: ) ie a hole for the spear, wont the spear have a tendency to bang around? I know it wont otherwise you wouldnt have asked for it and I have seen pictures of other guns similar; I just dont know why :confused:
Thanks
Ali :)

mahogony and teak is the manufacturer's choice so I trust in him ;) Open muzzle guns are more easier to aim and thats why I go in that way... (and I like that design aswell) The spear perfectly sit on the rail and doesnt move even a bit. :)

some more pics...

You see in open muzzle gun the shaft line is wrapped around the shaft once so it holds it down, if you look closely at the pic at the top of this page you can see tha line wrapped around the shaft.

HEY MEMO, NICE ONE!!!!!!!!!!

You haven't told them about your little incident with the band tying ;)

Let them know I am sure they will have a laugh.

You will shoot lots of great fish with that little gun I can assure you.

Well here is my little story fellas :D

2 or 3 days ago, I was tying the 16mm bands on my other gun. I went to the spearfishing store at that morning and bought some 2mm kevlar rope for that purpose ;)

I rushed to home with the thought of making great and super strong knots and get all my tying stuff to my working room! I waxed the rope, place the constrictor knot andfix one end of the rope to the huge marble desk :D . You know upto that point everything was fine but the greed to place the best knot captured me immediately! I put the working gloves on tie the other end of the rope to the handle of hammer and begin pulling and tightening the knot! As I was going slightly insane by the tought of an unbreakable knot, I placed one of my foot to the desk and began pumping to create a "perfect" knot. all of a sudden I heard the sound BAAAAAAAAAAANG!!!!!!!! and I really cant remember the upcoming 5mins in that story! Apperantly the 2mm kevlar line broke from the middle of the knot and I flew over the goose decoys landing on my neck :D :D

now I'm wearing a helmet ;)
