    TRAP AND FIELD HAD AN ARTICLE ON GUNS BUILT BY "COLE" ARE COPIES OF THE ORIGINAL SEITZ. I THOUGHT THE SILVER SEITZ(JERRY PHILLIPS) HAD THE PATENT. WHATS UP?

    The closest clone to the original Seitz is the Bowen. I don't know who, if anyone, has the patent, but in any case, I suspect it has expired by now.

    Trap and field article is dead wrong if they claim Cole guns are even similar to an original Seitz or a Bowen Seitz or Silver Seitz. The Cole gun is more like a Ljutic with a swinging hammer system however it uses a top lever to open the gun. They are beefier than a Ljutic and tend to feel heavy.

    The Original Seitz, built by the late Tom Seitz and the Bowen (Seitz) gun are nearly identical. Jerry Phillips, who builds the Silver Seitz, has made some changes in the mechanical design as manufacturing improvements and durability upgrades. All of the Seitz guns use a spring driven firing pin rather than a hammer to ignite the shotshell.

    the only similarity the Cole has to any Seitz is the fact it is a single barrel trap gun.

    The Trap and Field article didn't say that, Bob. I wrote it.

    Niel,

    Well, if you said the Cole was a copy of the original Seitz, you were dead wrong.

    Respectfully,
