It is likely that the new longer front plastic caps on the Pelengas "Profi" and "Varvar" pneumovacuum models have appeared for the same reason.

Hey everyone,
I just got informed I'll be getting this speargun as a birthday present.
The thing is, I've never done any proper spearfishing, I shot once with friend rubber speargun and that was it.
I have few questions about the gun.
1. Do I get all the equipment for rigging the shaft and is it hard to rig the shaft? I never done it before.
2. What additonal equipment do I need to buy?
3. Are you guys able to load it with pre-set pressure in the gun or you needed to adjust it?

Thanks in advance

Thanks for quick answer.
Watched the video few times already, it doesn't show how to rig a shaft, but hopefully I will figure out how to do it.

Hey Pete, Do you have an idea on why Pelengas is not manufacturing his 7 mm sliders in titanium anymore? Now he makes them in 17-4 PH SS which is heavier.

Sorry for the derrail, btw...

The sliders were originally stainless and the titanium versions came later. I can only assume that they were not a big seller, but the situation may change if enough people want them. Much easier to make stainless steel items.

Actually, they are a big seller. They have doubled the price since I first bought my first slider. I've recommended it to all my pneumatic user friends. It is a great design, but now I'm afraid that the extra weight can cause problems of the slider sticking in the back piece of the shaft like it happened with other stainless sliders I've tried before.

Ok, I just returned from the sea! I installed the Race Kit and the shock absorber and gave it a spin.
I am happy with the result because it seems to me that the kit actually makes a difference.
- I don't have a pressure gauge to know exactly, but I did the 500 pumps for 2Oatm, and I can easily load the gun with this pressure (It may be that it's less than 20 atm), and it has a pretty good punch.
- I noticed a more silent shot (this may have to do with the shock absorber)
- I used a 10W fork oil I got from a local gas station.
- I used a lubricant the shop suggested for the moving parts https://deepbluesub.com/en_us/product/x-grease-lubricant-for-oleo-pneumatic-guns/
- I didn't adjust the trigger's sensitivity due to the issue mentioned in the forum
- The process was easy and I used very simple tools
- I ordered from https://deepbluesub.com and I am happy with the prices and delivery time. They responded immediately and repeatedly to my email when I asked what I am going to need. The order came from Italy in 10 calendar days on Syros island (staying here for the summer). If I were in Athens, I would get it 1-2 days earlier

Looking cool right? :cool:

Nice! Did you get any fish with it?
If you can load it too easy, give it 50 more pumps or so until you find it a little difficult. If you notice that the trigger becomes hard or you feel recoil when shooting, take some air off.

My only hit was a white seabream that managed to escape :rolleyes:
Thanks for the tips!
