    Eric, Are you related to Jerry Kuhnhausen that wrote the gunsmith shop manuals? If so you should be very proud. The manual on 870-1100 is a wonderful resource that I have used many times. Thank you.

    Ruger did produce a undersingle only trap gun. Production was limited to a single year, 2001, and while Ruger's company policy will not allow them to tell me how many were produced, I've always heard it was between 200-300. I've also heard that most of them were purchased by employees or given to friends of the company and that very few made it general circulation. I know I've never actually seen one at a shoot. If you'd like I could send you pictures ny email.

    The features of the gun as described in the owners manual:
    an online version of the manual is here http://www.ruger.com/Firearms/PDF/InstructionManuals/32.pdf


    Specialized features demanded by target trapshooters and found in the RUGER®
    TRAP MODEL Shotgun include:

     A target trigger, adjustable for weight of pull (see p. 29).

     An adjustable rib, which can be set for individual shooters’ stature, sight
    picture, stance, and other preferences (see p. 26).

     A two-bead sighting system located atop the adjustable rib (see p. 27).

     A wide, cut-checkered beavertail forend for consistent front hand
    positioning.

     A target-style pistol grip of special shape and contour.

     An adjustable buttstock comb, to accomodate various facial configurations,
    stances, and hold-over for rising trap targets. It also is laterally adjustable
    for “cast off” and “cast on” (see p. 28).

     An adjustable buttpad, which can be set by the shooter for length of pull
    and “cant” (the angle of the buttstock from the center line of the stock to
    the left or right, as desired) (see p. 27).

     Since single barrel trap guns are never loaded or closed until immediately
    prior to a shooter calling “pull” to fire at a clay target (and are opened
    immediately after firing or if firing is delayed) trap guns generally have
    no separate manual safety/barrel selector (see p. 15). There is no
    possibility that the shooter will be unable to fire due to forgetting to
    correctly move the safety to the “fire” position for each shot during an
    extended target competition tournament.

     Another special feature of the Ruger Trap Model shotgun is its straight
    grooved “controlled pattern” bore. It prevents rotation of the wad and shot
    column while they move down the bore when fired. This minimizes shot
    dispension and contributes to improved pattern density on targets at all
    ranges. The 34” long barrel is also “back-bored” with a long forcing cone,
    which contributes to lessening felt recoil and fatigue. This is especially
    important to trapshooters, who routinely fire at hundreds of clay targets
    during a match. It accepts the latest screw-in Ruger choke tubes, and is
    supplied with “full” and “modified” choke tubes for trapshooting (see pp. 13
    - 14).

    Nope, they are strictly singles, only one firing pin. I have no idea if it could be reveresed and the single barrel fitted to a normal Red Label receiver.
