    Curious, I've not kept up, but what is status of 1. The Bowen Shotgun and 2. The Infinity Shotgun? I've gone to the websites, but the websites seem rather shutdown lately. Are these companies still making their product, revamping that which they do, or????

    Thanks..inquiring mind again...

    David.... Bruce Bowen quit making guns a while back, but, Bruce probably has any, and all, parts available. The Infinity is Dennis DeVaults baby... He is still making guns... Dan Thome (Trap2)

    Dennis is still building guns, but can't call them "Infinity" any more due to a dispute with an automaker (I believe).

    The dispute was with a builder of 45 acp pistols. Dennis will be building a new line of combo's, SBT's that will continue to be the cutting edge. By the way just talked to Dean Debow, he will be coming back--keep him in our prayers.

    I believe Bruce is still building a couple of guns a year.

    I for one think that high quality, relatively low-production, mechanical devices, "cottage industry" if you will, (products) are just so artful and functional. I hope that the Bowen Trapgun gets "picked up" for mfg. again as do I wish the same for the Bill Cole Trapgun..new owners with the same passion and understanding so quality is not at all compromised.

    Wishing the Silver Seitz Co. and the Alfermann Company the best of good fortunes....

    and with that thought, I hope Indy Champ cars are once again all-American from chassis to engine. Nothing against the British (chassis/designers) or the Japanese (Honda engines), but traditions lost or stillborn in our relatively young country for me, sadder.
