    I'm looking at a used Model 12 trap for my son. He's a lefty (I didn't raise him right, apparently). Can anyone tell me if the Model 12 has a nuetral cast?

    I'd also ask the same queation about the Ithaca Century trap.

    Thanks!

    For some reason every left handed shooter useing a Model 12 that I have been around was TOUGH!
    Very bad to be in a shootoff against. Let him use the pump but ALWAYS make sure that he has his shooting glasses on!

    I owned one for a short while that had pronounced left hand cast(cast on for a righty). It appeared to be a factory stock. I'm right handed, so I sold it to a left handed friend who probably still has it. He posts on here a lot, and will probably see this thread.

    One of the great things about the Model 12 is the short stock mounting tang. The stock can be removed and the tang bent , the stock inletting changed to move in any direction. Any good wood man can do it. Jeff

    I shot a mod 12 from the left side for years and years long before I even heard of cast on or cast off. I shot it very well and it fit like a glove. I think that not knowing anything about fit was a good thing. Like big John
    Daley (PGA) says "grip it and hit it".
