Proven design works great!

By Shawn

I've used my Cressi pneumatic gun for 5 months now and have had no problems with it. I bought the SL model with the pressure select switch. Other reviews mentioned that the gun was impossible to load. Mine was too at first but I bled off some of the factory air pressure by pushing a ball point pen tip into the back of the accumulator. I then pumped it back up to a reasonable level. If you have the SL model, be aware that it has to be set on low pressure to load it. You will not be able to loa...

ONE OF THE BEST GUNS AROUND

By cresmar 2.

All of the negative reviews about this gun are from people that don't know how to used it and by the way they are extremely easy to load. This pneumatic guns are more complicated and people really have to know what they are doing because they are also dangerous, once you know your gun they are the best. A lot of people just buy them without any knowledge and is sad to see bad reviews about this great gun that have been around for 35 years.

The SL range of pneumatic spear guns has been in production for many years, and they have won worldwide renowned for their excellence in reliability, precision, power and of being robust. Constantly updated over the years, the SL spear guns are ultra light, easy to use, and fire quickly. The SL comes with an anatomical high grip handle that enabling the gun to be held in line with the arm effortlessly. The bright yellow handle allows you quick and easy identification of the gun even if it ends up on the sea-floor after shooting. A strong line attachment eyelet on the handle allows attachment of a lanyard and aids in shaft loading. The SL guns are fitted with a safety catch to prevent accidental firing and, when the trigger is pulled the line release automatically releases the shaft line.

The SL guns have a range reducer so you can either use full power, or reduced the power for close-up fishing and shooting near rocks. When the power selector is switched to the reduced power mode, a non-return valve aids in gun loading. The SL spear guns come with an 8mm (0.31") threaded stainless steel tempered shaft. The shaft threads are 7mm and will fit the following Cressi spear tips: 3 Prong Spear Head (see SKU: CSB3P), Mini Spear Head (see SKU: CSBMSH), Mach Spear Head (see SKU: CSBSHM) and any other 7mm threaded spear tips. The SL spear guns models come in three lengths: SL 55 which is 21.5 "(55 cm) in length, SL 70 which is 27.5" (70 cm) in length, and the SL 100 measuring 39" (100 cm) in length. The guns have a 13mm (0.5") internal barrel. The legendary Cressi handle provides an angle between the barrel and handle and determines the winning ergonomics of Cressi pneumatic spear guns. The Cressi SL Spear Gun comes with a gun pump, shaft loader and owner's manual.

Faulty construction. Could be easy fix.

I recently bought both the Cresisub SL and Star and the cable holder on both came off with in a few weeks of owning the guns. Of course, there is no where I can find to get the little plastic retainer and pin. My crew was recently featured in Louisiana Sportsman (July) for spearfishing. I know guns. If this flaw in the design would be fixed the gun is perfect. Still need the parts.

Used by freedivers with good success! Reliable and effective.

By Ben C.

from Bokeelia, FL, US

I have a cressi SL100 and I'm very pleased with it, I'm a freediver and have shot all the famous brands of spearguns out there. Have always enjoyed pneumatics for the compactness and efficient power delivery. All pneumatics can be loaded on high or low power. The models with 8mm shafts -5/16 can really hit hard but need higher pressures to shoot the same speed as the 7mm shaft versions (mares cyrano). If your buying a shorter version by all means by the type without a power regulator as they are cheaper and perform better (Google it), people remove them all the time. Anyways, these are great reliable guns, I used mine for 4 years before it started leaking and needed new seals, had it rebuilt for $50 and it hasn't missed a beat! Ben-Tonga

Pneumatic guns are quick, small and powerful. I have even bagged barracuda with this gun with no problem.

Great gun.

By helosrule02

I have owned this gun for 3 yrs. I have been on over 43 spear fishing dives. It has never failed me. The only maintenance I have performed is a good fresh water rinse and dry it off.

 

Perfect Walleye Hunter

By Dick H.

Great Gun for any price....Perfect for rec diving and spearing game fish.

 

Good Gun

By RICK H.

Good gun but poor service support from the factory.R

 

excellent speargun

By Simon V.

Is a lightweight and good range speargun

 

Great speargun at a great price

By The W.

I have owned this speargun for a while now and it still works great.. Becareful how much air you add to the gun because while it does make it more powerful it also makes it harder/impossible to crank down and load underwater.. I had this problem on a dive and I couldnt load it so I wasnt able to fish..

 

also had problem with retainer for shaft

By DoDa C.

over all its a good gun for the price,BUT must upgade retainer ring. I lost a shaft right away. address before use qick fix now im good

 

ok gun for a good price

By Randy b.

This is a very inexpensive gun that works. It is very powerfull on the high setting and not worth shooting on the low setting. It is also very hard to load, I would not recomend for a smaller person as the loading takes alot of strength. My biggest complaint is the difficulty of the safety switch and the trigger pull. They are both very stiff and I usually have to take the safety off with my thumb which is not condusive to on the fly hunting. This gun has plenty of power for large game and shoots well other than the few hang ups and for the money if your only hunting a dozen times a year it will work.

 

Limited life span.

By Thorpedo

I have owned this gun for a little over a year. The rope clip has snapped, this happened whilst reloading (normal operation) it broke off in my hand. And then the safety snapped in half this weekend. Basically the plastic used on the gun is sub standard (Cressi sub standard) only joking, I have a lot of Cressi Sub gear and have had no problems until now. I'm hoping I can get parts to repair.

Almost impossible to load

By Pasquinel

The gun seems well built but is almost impossible to load, it requires too much force which makes it dangerous if you can´t push the shaft all the way into the catch mechanism.

SERGEY S  This speargun Cressi SL working like russian AKS.Tha best.Good price.
RICK H  YES!!
SHELLEY G  Yes, 1 shaft.
PASCAL G  Yes it does. It is thick and durable unlike the Mares that is smaller and tends to bend. Great gun!
Martin M  Mine did
IVAN A  yes
RICK G  My family have 3 Cressi SL guns. I haven't shot any of my band guns in 2 years. You can pump it up to get the power you want. Great guns for a good price. It does come with a shaft. I made a few changes. I do not like the tip that comes with it as it doesn't have the coller to hold the toggles down to get the tip back through the fish. I also put a 15' coil cord that attaches the gun to the spear. Way faster and works great in the Oregon coast.
JAMES B  It comes with a cadmium plated shaft. It's ok for a starter shaft, but If you're in salt water it will eventually rust. I've heard of the threaded end breaking off. Best to get spring stainless. I have both the Cressi and Mares in the same size. Prefer the Mares.
JAMES B  Yes.
MARK R  Comes with everything u need.... Great product.. I really like mine.....
CAMILO P  Yes. It is not he best quality shaft but it has lasted me 3 years. I only bent it once while fishing in shallow rocks.
CARLOS U  This gun come with the shaft, but you should find a metalworker and made your own since the one that come with the gun is not that strong. If you make a bad shot to a 20 pound grouper the factory shaft is gone. The gun is great.
RALPH F  YES IT COMES WITH THE SHAFT
