Default Reassembling a Speargun handle

Hey guys,

Someone was extremely kind to me and gave me an old speargun. It needs some TLC, but soon it'll be up and shooting. However, I took the handle and trigger mechanism apart to clean it as it was totally caked in old grease. After a good cleaning, I have ungreased parts ready to put back together. I was going to WD40 all the metal and then add some marine grease. Anyone have a better or different suggested route? I don't want to jack up the new-to-me gun...

-R.

Do not use WD-40 on ANY dive gear. I'd recommend a good food grade silicone grease. Petroleum products and solvents do not work and play well with dive gear.
