    What are the primary distinctions/attributes between a trap gun and a bunker gun?

    Thanks,
    Chip

    Bunker guns are more closely related to Sporting guns. They typically have a lower POI than American Trap guns. This is due to the variation in height of the target, or so I'm told.

    However, look at the guns you see in the Olympic. A more various crowd of 12ga shotguns you will never see. I would conclude that there really is no specific configuration for a Bunker gun.

    I have 682 Bunker gun. It's a 50/50 shooter with a very flat rib. 29.5" barrels and the stock looks more like a Sporting Clays stock than a trap stock. Straight from the factory, no mods.

    Typical bunker guns are 29.5" choked to 25/.35 flat ribbed

    Nothing special

    If its a Perazzi barrel weight of 1.5-1.55 kg
