Default I found a lost Riffe speargun

Now that I have your attention I'm sure you're disappointed. I know I was. Picked it up while dragging anchor and thought it was a brand new riffe. The red gun butt still looks brand new. It was in pieces actually, I had to untangle it and zip tie it back together... Does anybody know anything about this gun? I would have been pretty pi$$E# if I had lost it and probably made a stink about it to all my buddies. It was 1.5 miles out of destin pass near the A-Leg reef. It had a 4 oz weight attached to the handle and a white line tied around the shock cord. Looks like it may have been attached to some structure or bat with the white string and came untied at the other end...Found a little baby octopus living in the trigger. He proceeded to stick to the deck of our john boat and be a pain in the butt to get him un-suctioned.

You can order everything new for that gun. Riffe sells every replacement piece, from the red butt cap to the little retainer tab. Even the stock!

That would be an interesting rebuild.

Yeah, I lost a C2 last year. It floated off into the sunset. Mine did not have weight attached to it though.
