Default Riffe Speargun Needing Help

Ok, i posted earlier about the part number on the gun and it matched up as the Riffe competitor 2. I inspected it and everything seemed to check out so i bought it, but as i got home and thoroughly inspected it, i noticed i have to pull the trigger in order to load the shaft, then let go of the trigger to lock it in. I never had to do this with my JBL's so i was just curious if that was a trait of riffe guns, or if mine is flawed. Thanks for the help..

Just checked my Rife c2x to make sure, and NO, I do NOT have to pull the trigger to lock in the spear. You SHOULD have to have the safety off to LOAD or FIRE. I would get MBT to check it over.....Rifes are great guns, but I was bruised up pretty badly by mine ---- went off when the tip contacted the bottom, causing the butt to slam my bicep......took a month to heal. Definately something you want to make sure is in good working order.

..also check the bands, I'm sure MBT will do it, but if they have any cracking at all when you pull them back they need to be replaced. Most of them only last 1 to 2 seasons.

Thanks.. You were right about the safety and the shaft securely locks into place now. I replaced the bands today along with the shock chord and lookin forward to taking it out. I appreciate the help.
