My guess is a Herb Orr style made on a Crowe Safety. NOT Crowfoot as many Jake Legs call them.I just bought a milled rib M-12 trap made in 1940 with a unique trigger. It is a lever that replaces the safety. Forward is release, straight down is pull & back is on safe. Any idea who did this conversion? Thanks
A lot of them were hook and peg design back then. The later generation ones were where they notched the back of the hammer. Both styles worked well. Many removed the trigger lock (safety) completely so it could not be put on to safe. Back then it was a lost target.I was a trap boy years ago when model 12's were very popular. Most the release triggers on model 12's were built that way. I have a couple of them now, Phillip built one of them.
