We have a set of Kromson skeet traps at our club that do not operate.
These is no manual to refer to. They are turret traps.

It has been over a year since they were used, as there has been little interest in skeet. They just sat in the houses.

I googled Kromson with the result that there is no known current owner of this line of traps.

I am afraid we have an orphan brand of traps with no known support.

It is my understanding that they are Spanish made.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help.

Did you get to http://www.kromson.es? There's an E-mail P.o.C. listed.

My understanding from folks in the Olympic Trap community is that Kromsons were VERY good machines. What I've heard is that some grounds in Spain & Portugal have 40 year old Kromsons that are still running just fine.

Hope this helps.

I imported a bunch of them in the 80s. They are made in Spain and are still in business as best I know. Very well respected by those folks using them. Where are the machines?

Thanks to those that responded.

MiKe, the traps are located in mid Missouri.

I will follow up with the info received.

Might also check out QRP repair folks.

Too darned cold to mess with them at the present.
They do look to be well built traps.

Ed,

Carlos Alonso at Kromson speaks english. Whatever your request, he should be able to handle it.

In the sixties or seventies, Kromson made a machine that would sling a live pigeon from a receptacle that looked like a tennis ball can. I never saw it operate.

The problem with the traps is that apparently no one in the USA supports them.

QRP has never heard of them.

Still looking for information.
