SKU: Mares Sniper Alpha Sling Gun- 45cm Category:

For spearos and spearas who want a simple, functional and reliable speargun, the Mares Sniper Alpha is a great choice.

It is beautifully designed and uses superb quality materials for durability.

The outer barrel is made from anodised aluminium, making it resistant to corrosion. The shaft release and line release are made from hard-wearing stainless steel, while the shaft is galvanised steel (PR80, 7mm threaded).



  • Compact muzzle with a circular sling
  • An ergonomic handle designed for comfort and efficiency, mimicking the shape of the handle on the Viper Pro
  • Set up for vertical spiro reel
  • Single-barb bullet spear tip
  • 14mm S-power circular sling
  • Race wishbone

Available as 35cm, 45cm, 55cm and 75cm.

This gun does not come rigged from the manufacturer. We can rig it for you at a small charge to cover the time it takes. We will also upgrade to high quality Rob Allen 2mm mono and crimps with a single wrap.

A muzzle bungee is not provided by the manufacturer of this gun, but we feel itโ€™s an essential upgrade if you want to avoid stressing when rigging your gun in the water after a shot. The bungee allows you to quickly pop your shooting line on the line release ready for your next shot. Without a bungee this can be a very fiddly and annoying job – especially with gloves on.
