    This trap (circa 1933), was manufactured by the Chamberlin Cartridge Company, Findley, Ohio for Remington. It is an exact duplicate of the Chamberlin No.4 trap. Remington purchased the Chamberlin Cartridge Company in 1933.

    Value estimate: From Ebay previous sales: $30.00 to $50.00

    Hope this helps you Bruce...

    It looks like the one I first got exposure to Trap Shooting, in 1962. My Father put in the "hole", with one of these, and my job was to Cock, load, and throw the target on command. It was all up to me, I did it all, no lever or trip on the line. I was fast enough to keep up with the shooters calling. Many, many years ago.
