    I am considering buying a Rottweil Model 72 AAT Trap Combo. It has a 32" single barrel with adjustable rib and a set of over/under barrells also 32". All are fixed choke. One barrell has one star stamped on it and the other has two stars. The gun looks to be in excellent condition with no visiable marks/scratches on the wood or metal. My research has not come up with any information on the reputation of the gun or any information on its value. Does anyone have experience with and/or knowledge of this gun or manufacturer?

    Thanks

    Randy

    Adj. rib, a wedge slides back to raise it. Might be a removable trigger.

    One star is full, 2 is mod.

    I have the same combination on two different guns instead of a combo. The two stars is Improved Mod. Its a good gun. Laurence Pylinski, in Cumberland, VA, and Chris Vendel are both excellent Rottweil smiths and have most critical parts available.

    Laurence Pylinski is an excellent gunsmith and machinist. He has almost every part for the guns or can make them if he doesn't. I'm sorry but I don't have his phone number handy perhaps someone out there would be kind enough to post it.

    I would call him before buying the gun there were a few of them to stay away from and he'll tell you if you should get the one your looking at.

    Excellent shotguns and way ahead of their time- I have had 5 different ones over the years and still have 1 32 inch single and a 3 barrel combo set.
    The real early ones had some parts issues and might be avoided- Parts are available so don't worry about that.
    They are light. I went from a Rottweil to a Ljutic and it took a while to get used to the heavier gun.

    There were two nearly identical models by NAME ONLY.

    The 72 AT and 72 AAT. I have one, but can't remember which name it was. If your or this one has the drop-out triggers, it was a helluva gun. Beautifully made triggers, as well as adjustable POI via the front hanger bracket.

    The "other" model was nothing more than a Franchi 2000/2005/3000/2005. I have one of these here now. Not the greatest gun; terrible trigger pulls and no parts available. FIE Corporation out of FL was the importer. I bought out their parts when they ceased - nothing left now.
