Bridger™ CG85 Shoulder Line Gun Kit
U.S. Coast Guard approval #160.031/6/3
Dimensions: 34” L X 12” W X 8” H

The Bridger™ Shoulder Line Gun is a custom made line launcher 45/70 caliber gun capable of throwing a line from 300’ to 750’ or more, subject to line weight, projectile used, cartridge load, and wind conditions. The standard Model #CG85 Kit comes with lines and projectiles for distances up to 550’, subject to wind conditions. The line gun is the same in each available kit.

The entire CG85 kit, easily carried, is sold in a sturdy red wooden box with solid brass hardware and weighs 36 lbs. (16.3 Kg).  

Or, you can upgrade to:
(1) CG85PEL kit sold in a Pelican™ case. Although its’ weight is greater at approximately 53 lbs., the wheels & handles make it easily maneuverable.  It is lockable, completely waterproof, and the case comes with a lifetime warranty.  Also USCG approved.
(2) FD85SK kit sold in a SKB® case.  The total weight is lighter at 36 lbs and the overall size is slightly smaller for easy storage at 38" X 13" X 9".  Wheels and substantial handles make this ATA rated thermoformed polyethylene case with TSA latches a smart choice.

The Bridger™ Shoulder Line Gun serves many uses in the marine, construction, and rescue industries. With practice, the gun can be ready for line deployment in seconds.  Should the Bridger™ gun save one human life, it more than repays its moderate first cost.

Because of the long-term reliability, consistent results, ease of use, and modest cost per shot, customers looking for a long-term line gun investment, choose Bridger™.
