The MAKO Spearguns AR15 American Speargun (Open Track) is a Big Game Gun with features and components that set it apart from conventional spearguns and Euro guns. It was designed by fellow spearos, Jeff DeRocher (AKA Tin Man) and Chad Morris (AKA Griswold).

  • AR15, Describes the incredibly durable and ergonomic A2 grip found on most assault rifles.
  • American, Describes the all stainless steel, Tin Man designed, trigger mechanism made for the widely available American cut spears. This trigger mechanism is stronger than any other trigger mechanism ever installed on a railgun or Euro gun.
  • Open Track, Describes the open track with fully integrated rail barrel that extends the full length of the barrel. The rail supports the spear the entire length of the barrel and provides additional strength to the barrel.

The Loading Butt spreads the force of loading across a larger area of your chest, making loading easier and more comfortable. The loading butt also provides stability so the gun does not slide off your chest when loading.

Ask anybody who has loaded a speargun without a loading butt and they will be the first to tell you that they wish they had one. The loading butt makes loading a speargun quick and painless.
