As a late contributor to this thread I would like to add the following;

Comando is simply the Spanish translation of Commando.

You should ask on the following forum as I have found lots of info regarding Nemrod guns here;

Medfish Magazine

There is a shop in the North of Spain which specialises in old Nemrod guns / spares which you can check here;

Alitan-Sub

Good luck!

When I was a kid I always wanted a Nemrod Commando - I had the Torpedero - but like the design of the commando better - and the excellent grip.
I just missed one on ebay :( probly just as well as getting the thing running would be a challenge.

Djohn - thanks for posting those pics. I just started looking at a Corsario I got last week and the pics of the back end of your gun may have answered a question that had me stumped (will post in separate thread).

How is that PVC adapter holding up? My first thought was that it might well blow up! But I just found this PVC pipe fittings pressure ratings and it looks like you might be OK.

I just made an adapter from 3/4 OD x 1/8" aluminum pipe, to adapt the standard M14x1.0 pumps (Mares, etc.) for my 3/4 x 16 threaded Scubapro Magnum (I think with enough teflon tape, I might have been able to get the older M18 Cressi Sub pump to fit too, the thread pitches are pretty close). It was a bit tough threading the outside of the pipe, since I guess the pipe should be sized slightly less than 3/4 to use the thread die, and I have really cheapo dies, but with a little effort I got it to work. If I had it to do again, I'd figure out a way to chuck the pipe in a drill press and first take down the OD a hair with a file. Anyway, since you need an adapter where the internal threads are larger diameter than the externals, you'd have to use two different diameters of pipe and thread them together in the middle as well, but I find it pretty easy to fabricate aluminum with simple hand tools and this might be possible. Or start with a M14 sized pump instead, and a single piece of tubing.

Oh its holding up great, it did the job but if it breaks I can make a new one but and I don't need to release the air from my gun anytime soon so that means I don't need the pump:)

They come up on eBay from time to time. If you're an oilman, you might be able to afford one!

I'd say figuring out how to make an adapter for a more common pump, like Mares, would be the easiest way. There is some discussion of that in this thread. I'm lazy and don't like all the pumping, so I'm adapting a scuba tank to do the job. You still have to make a fitting for the metric Nemrod pump port.

Re: Nemrod Fusil Submarino- Comodoro mid 50's. ?

Hello,
This is my first post and I will pleased with info.
I wish to send my spear-gun to Australia to a friend that has a dive museum,
is there any restriction regarding sending a 'weapon' through the post. It still is in good working order and has been well cared for. I would also appreciate some pumping instructions, its a long time ago when I used it at full pressure, I remember, half an egg cup of thin oil in the pump, but how many strokes of the pump ??.
Best regards,
LaughingWater

Generally, you have to release the air before it can go by airplane. Here in the US, I think the limit is 40 psi. I suspect that is an international air requirement (IATA), but I'm not certain. Probably best to completely discharge it. You'd also have to check to make sure it's not a restricted item to receive in Australia (it probably isn't but it pays to check). Your friend may know about that issue. I don't know how many strokes it takes - in my experience pumps vary wildly in efficiency, so it's better to pump to a final pressure determined either by a gauge or by the insertion force of the spearshaft.

I'm needing the safety flip tab for a Nemrod comando. I will take the whole handle w/ safety or even a complete gun for parts if anyone has one they would like to get rid of.

Thanks

My wife and I are just getting into spearfishing and have a band gun but we also inherited two Nemrod Clippers (a I and a Mini) that I'm trying to repair. They didn't come with a pump so I'm playing around with the idea of making an adapter like Djohn did but had a question:

On the butt of the gun there is what looks like a little one way needle valve (almost like the ones on bike valves). Does my adapter need to press this down to get air in? It doesn't look like Djohn's solution does (and it looks from one of his pictures like he has that valve too on his Commando) so I don't think I need to depress this while pumping but I wanted to check before investing much time in this. Thanks in advance for any advice and I apologize for resurrecting an old thread if that annoys anyone.

The pressure developed in the hand pump opens the valve, so you don't push the pin/needle in to add air to the gun. You only push the pin in to let air out, just like any air pressure valve on a car or a bike.

No, you need a Nemrod pump. Earlier Nemrod pumps had a blue rounded handle, like an old style bicycle pump, but the later versions had a black plastic pump handle, including the version supplied with the "Comando" which was one of the "Silver series" spearguns. Earlier pumps have a number of knurled bands on the blue anodized pump barrel (to provide a grip), but the later ones just have a smooth outer barrel tube. The screw thread (16 mm) connections stayed the same, the pump seals to the back of the gun via a washer at the bottom of the inlet valve attachment point. On the pump handle you will find "Nemrod" and "Made in Spain"; Nemrod always identified their gear by displaying their name on each moulded plastic part, provided it was large enough to display their name.

If you can't manage to find one - and they are in short supply - you could consider buying a pump from a more current and common brand, and fabricate an adapter.

The pump connection thread is M16X1 and the threaded length is slightly longer than one centimetre. The pump tube has an OD of 16 mm, the screw thread being directly machined into the pump body.

From time to time the pumps show up on eBay, you could check https://www.ebay.es as that is where the guns were made. The USA was a large market for Nemrod gear, hence guns and their pumps often show up there. Sometimes guns are stolen and burglars don't know or care about the hand pump.
