any ways i bought a few dozen new duke traps(3's) so far i was pretty impressed on how much they had changed these traps they set well and did all they were supposed to do... except i got a round to adjusting my tension when i stripped out one bolt,so i moved on to the next and the next one none of them would set right it would seem the brass bolt and nut that is in them should have a longer bolt and a washer put in the middle of them the ones that are in them are to short to fully adjust right.so now with a month to go i am in need of buying new bolts and washers for them(just as soon as i can find them) so buyer beware if you buy them get some new bolts and washers for them,other than that they are a good trap they just have a carppy bolt in them 8)

Usually, I take all the bolts off my traps when I buy them new anyway, and replace them with the longer brass bolts, with a washer to help with tension. I started doing that when the new Victors I purchased stripped and I wasn't able to get good tension.

MinnTrapline ships fast warcraft, and they have the bolts in stock.

The part number is 71603. It's the longer bolt and nut that fit all the different trap sizes, all the way up past #3's and all the way down to #1's. Then, with them, also purchase the brass pan washers. They're like 6 bucks for a hundred. That takes the wiggliness out of the pan.
