If your going to help him out with information about one being on E-Bay why not also go the extra 1/8 step and at least give the item # ... 110111730082 ... or go even a little farther and give a link to the auction itself ... http://tinyurl.com/2v5exw
Could be a decent deal but it is older, has 1/2 a million targets thrown threw it and the club is getting rid of it because they purchased a new one. Why would they get rid of a perfect older working machine if there was not a problem of some sort with it though ... I wonder what it would cost to ship it back to Pat Trap, rebuild it and then have it shipped to your place.
Your right it does say skeet machine but most skeet machines are sold in pairs and the doubles and singles part makes me believe it is trap machine and just not listed correctly since the seller is listing it for a friend.
Like I have said I would still be worried about buying an 8 year old machine with 1/2 a million targets thrown on it. It will most likely need a major maintence/overhaul sooner than later which is another expense.
