    I recently purchased an 1100 Trap gun from Pokerdand that was advertised here on ts.com. I am very pleased with the whole transaction. The gun is in better condition than described & Dan is a great guy to deal with/visit. Here is my question; I broke it down to the "molecular" level to clean it & discovered that the barrel extension has been drilled for a wire shell catcher. Can anyone tell me what the most common type/size of wire is to install for this purpose? Thanks for any assistance.

    music wire that fits into the holes, a little longer than the distance between them.

    Stainless welding rod they use with tig welding works real well, just pick a size that will fit the holes. You can buy one piece at the welding shop and it will make several so you have many spares when you lose them in the grass.

    Most Ace Hardware Stores usually stock music wire . Take your barrel to one (call ahead ) and get the one that best fits .

    Piano/Spring wire, .055". It can be had at most hobby shops in sufficient lengths to make enough wires to last for years. Drilling the holes correctly is the first trick. The second is bending the wire properly to stay put and function as intended.
