    There are several models:

    V1524 (traditional hand-set model), probably $150-$200<BR>
    V1574 (skeet model, single stack), probably $750<BR>
    V1577 (trap model with 400 bird carousel), probably $1000<BR>
    V1582 (trap model with 400 bird carousel - similar to V1577, but an updated version), probably $1000<BR>
    V1583 (trap model with 400 bird carousel, come with vertical oscillation for "wobble"), probably up to $1500<BR>

    CONDITION is everything, because it is difficult to tell what needs fixing without a tear-down.

    I orchestrated the buyout from Winchester's Trap & Skeet Division and move here to Rapid City, SD to H-S Precision. H-S still has parts, but they no longer manufacture any parts, so if you buy one, you could be in a hurt locker should something crash. There are a couple of after-market suppliers, but their parts supplies are dwindling. When no more critical parts are available, you'll have a good boat anchor.

    I just inventoried by parts supply and came up with about $4000-$5000 retail and have offered it to a supplier for $1000. We're still working out some details for this transaction.

    I do have some manuals on CD for these machines. My manuals are not available anywhere else, because I received from Winchester's people here blueprints, etc. and special manuals not available to the public. There were then assembled in a better version showing all the parts schematics, and then I correlated each part to its nomenclature and a direct line entry in the price list. This was a painstaking task, but I felt it would make it easy for an owner to be exact in identifying each part, its name and part number, and cost.

    Unfortunately, I do not sell the parts any longer for H-S. Here's an example of what I put together.
