Salvimar V Pro is equipped with the traditional Salvimar open muzzle, designed with one single passage for circular elastic bands, that according to Salvimar can be mounted up to three at the same time. The shape of the muzzle is made to accompany the elastic bands in the right direction when speargun is loaded. Material is 30% glass loaded Nylon. Inferior line holder is made of steel wire. Elastic bands offered standard are circular of 14 mm diameter and 3.6 (360%) elongation coefficient. The wishbones are Dyneema tied solution.

Barrel

The barrel is made with a 28 mm external diameter aernautical anodized aluminium tube. Shaft guide rail is integrated in the barrel, giving optimal direction to the shot and increasing rigidity in particular in the vertical plane. Thickness of the walls of the tube of the barrel is equal to 1.3 mm.

Release mechanism

Release mechanism is made in 100% 304 stainless steel, including the castle, while the trigger is in Grivory. The line release lever is in the modern and most efficient lateral position and it is also made of steel, always a good solution to resist to wear and deformation. Such lever can be quite easily moved from the right to the left side of the handle. In addition, the sensitivity of the trigger can be regulated with a screw positioned under the hilt.

The security system is positioned in such a way that the right handers can perfectly feel the “button” coming out of the handle signaling the lock is on. This workes also for left handers, but is a little less effective are they will feel nothing and from that will need to understand the lock is on, and when the lock will be off they will feel in the palm at the base of the index finder the “button” of the lock coming out.

Handle

The handle has an anathomical left and right hander design and is made of 30% glass loaded nylon, just as the muzzle, and has a special softer anti-slip orange colour element on the back side where the palm of the hand adheres. There is no “wing” that permits to best position the line away from the line of aim. The handle is designed to mount any Salvimar Reel, that by the way is included in the offer, wow! (best guaranteed on-line price at this link). In the bottom part of the handgrip there is a well designed and integrated passage, one piece with the grip, for positioning a line.
