I know this weapon isn't being manufactured by SKB anymore and thus parts are unavailable. What is the general consensus of opinion however of this trap gun. :lol:

First off it's not a weapon, it's a shotgun.. Secondly, you're not likely to need parts.. Bushrod

May I respectfully disagree that a shotgun is not a weapon. Not looking to start anything here. But the moment one forgets that these shotguns are weapons, the odds of a tragic gun accident go up tremendously.

I would also hazard a guess that many military and law enforcement types would argue that shotguns are weapons as well. Frank Woolner, one of my favorite old authors, and WWII vet who saw combat, made this arguement quite forcefully.

Grousen: I didn't say a shotgun was not a Weapon ( although most aren't), I said an SKB Century wasn't a weapon.. Who knows more about word definition than Webster. "Weapon:An instrument of any kind, used for fighting" Also referring to sporting guns as"weapons" is only fuel for the anti gun group.. Do you know of anyone who goes out and buys a $700 single trap to kill someone with.. I don't think so.. Bushrod

Hey guys,
My apologies. I should have referred to it as a shotgun not weapon. I would really like to know the history behind this trap gun. When were they first introduced for the US market by SKB for Ithaca. When did production stop. How many were manufactured and is this trap gun considered ' collectable'. The one I recently acquired was mfg'd in early 1974 and came to me in the original box with the company test pattern sheet still inside along with warrenty card etc. The gun has never been fired and is pristine. The wood is terrific. I thinking I may not shoot it if it's worth keeping as an investment. Any thoughts?
:roll:

Blue Book says they were made 1973-1975. I would use it, there's not a lot of interest in single traps and I doubt it will appreciate very little as compared to the double guns,, Bushrod

did SKB make a set of double barrels for the Century Trap Model or is the receiver just built to fit a single barrel? I'm betting it's the later. Would be nice though if you could pick up a set of o/u barrels for this.
thanks guys for your info :lol:

It is the latter.

There is only one set of "lockwork" for one barrel on these guns and the receiver is strictly sized for a single barrel.

actually it's a Century II model Trap which is an improved model over the previous Century Trap gun. I'm told that only 400 were imported into the US in 75 or 76'. Is the Century II Trap model value more than $700 ? New and unfired condition.

SKBSHOTGUNS.COM has parts for everything SKB related. I'll bet they have parts for your gun.
