Looking through the olds and obsoletes pile at the club. There are 5 Winchester hand sets (tags on them said they were checked and functional about 15 years ago), and 15 pneumatic bunker traps - all handsets. Hate to haul them to the scrap yard. Is there any demand for these? I'd thinking shipping would be prohibitive.

I think, Some of the parts on those win. Hand set machines enterchange with Win. Single stack skeet machines.

We’ve got 15 of those pneumatic bunker traps as well. Been trying to give them away but no takers. The big problem is the computer/controller that is way beyond obsolete.

There are still parts, and even Western Retro carousels for the Winchester Western hand set traps.
They have to be pretty cheap to find a buyer.

There are no school teams in the area.

All 18 of our trap fields have gmv superstars in them - we have 1 unused field which is where these things are stored. That field has a house built for a wobble trap (lid is flush to ground), but there isn't a trap installed. One reason I'm looking to get rid of these things is so I can empty that house and move one of the superstars that has the wobble motor into it. One of our spare gmvs will then go into the trap where the wobble trap is currently.

I'd contact sellers of Winchester trap parts and see if any are interested and nearby your location. If not nearby, you could meet someplace. Those parts are getting tougher to find and more valuable. Good luck.

Put 'em on Ebay as "rare antiques" or "vintage". Actually might look cool as a display item.
