About JBL Magnum 38 Special Double Sling Spear Gun (4D38)

The spear gun design that started it all, the JBL Magnum series of guns is probably responsible for more speared fish than all other spear guns combined. It's no wonder; as this durable and accurate workhorse features a 1 1/4" (3.2 cm) drawn alloy barrel, corrosion resistant hardened stainless steel trigger, shaft and point. The JBL728S shaft is made from 17-4 spring stainless for durability and long life shaft is 24" (61 cm) in length with a 5/16" diameter. The Handles are constructed of two-piece cast aluminum providing strength and ease of maintenance. The Guns overall length is 44" (112 cm).

The Magnum 38 Special features two 9/16" Hi-Mod JBL214 bands with 302 stainless wire wishbones, one hand safety and trigger operation. Let's get right to the point, these tips are designed to punch through even the toughest fish, penetrating thick skin and hard bone. Constructed of hardened 17-4 stainless with a razor sharp finish they'll make short work of just about any game fish. Low-profile, stainless wings are quickly deployed and angled to grab tight and hold on. Sliding wing retainer allows for easy removal of fish. Our patented (#4685239) rotating design allows for 360 degree spin, providing greater holdingpower, and minimizing the chance of your point unthreading from the shaft as a result of a fish "rolling" in battle 2-5/8-inch wing span designed to perform even after impact on rock and reef, the JBL843 is a durable workhorse. Each point is designed for low maintenance, dependability and most important results.

The Gun is equipped with the JBL515 Shock Line. Sometimes we miss or we shoot a large fish and the recoil can pull the gun out of your grip, which ever the shock line will keep you in control. The Guns range is 25' (7.6meters). Tried and trusted this is one hunting buddy you'll be glad to share a secret spot with. These guns are most suitable for spear fishing among reefs and rocks where heavy penetration is needed but range is not critical. The Gun is totally made in the USA.

I dive for abalone and spear fish in north CA, and this gun is great anything from small sea trout to ling cod and halibut, one down side the metal ring on the spear that fits into the end of the gun, if your tip gets unscrewed you will loose it, but still a great gun.

This was the first gun I bought. It did not work right from day one. I had been using my friends AB-Biller and the two guns do not compare. Very inaccurate and very noisy underwater. After one shot, all the other fish leave the area because of the noise it makes. I would recomend AB-Biller or OMER.

    Bottom Line; upgrade the bands. Stock isn't enough, this is an awesome gun to 10ft if you throw some 5/8 bands on it and a nice tip. Needs maintenance after every use or it will not last. Awesome gun if you learn to use it correctly.

      Absolutely fun gun and accurate up to 8ft or so. Speared many many Black fish/Tau tag and shot a few striped bass. Waiting for the Run of bigger fish to try on larger prey.

        Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

        Questions about this item:

        Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
        james b  Love my gun had it 3 years now. Good distance on stock bands but JBL Pro Sling 5/8 X 16 (16 mm x 406 mm) with Blue Coating bands are even better on the gun. I've taken many many many fish with this gun and yet to have any issues. Work horse with out a doubt
        Dimitrios D  What size replacement tips do I need for this model gun? And are there any suggestions about reels that I could rig to fit this gun?
        MIKE F  Sorry about the late reply. Assuming you're using the original shaft that came with the gun, you will need the 6mm threaded tips. Regarding the reel, if you want specifics I don't have any. All depends on how much you want to spend for the features. I haven't used one. My dive buddy had one that was basic and it was nice. I personally never had any reason to get one. Hope this helps you out.
        Shopper  Is this a good gun for someone who is a beginner in spearfishing?
        LeisurePro S  Any of JBL's midsized guns are great beginner guns.
