Return to Spearguns / Home  

The purpose of the Primitive Speargun section was to provide examples, which exhibit how spearguns may have originated. In the Vintage Spearguns section we examine the evolution of speargun development for two reasons.

1. We examine the earliest implements of the sport to understand the historical significance of equipment developments as they relate to the challenges faced by the pioneers of the sport, which was the genesis of equipment evolution.

2. We examine early speargun development to better understand the design aspects of contemporary, cutting edge spearguns.

Provenance for the Vintage Speargun section is in the form of patents, advertisement, articles and other forms of documentation. If you or someone you know would like to contribute to this resource please use the "Contact Us" option on the main menu, or use this link.
