    That goes right along with what I've seen them sell for. Nice ones go for $500-$550 then start deducting for condition.

    You can do better. The co is no longer in business. Can you find parts? Can you find a gunsmith that can and will work on it when you need one? Can you get them to work on the gun either before the weekend shoot or during a shoot?

    You need to find a gun that has parts being made and can be worked on my any gunsmith any where.

    I understand the recoil can be "strong". JOND

    Bruce, SKB is/was built in Japan. They went out of business over a year ago. SKB in Omaha is where you send your gun for service. They have enough parts for at least 20 years. They are very good to work with. Mike

    The SKB website states that they have no parts for the Century Trap guns.
    I would buy a BT 99 instead.

    I've got one I know my wife wouldn't let me sell, her gun, purchased from a friend many years ago. I had the trigger worked on by Herb Stratemeyer which was flawless, great gun- no recoil- all in the fit. The 99's you can find anywhere, a good, I think they were Ithaca Century's are hard to come by.
