Magnum has stronger springs and the jaws close completely without a gap.

Major pain in the ass, and would have been impossible to get them all set without a good pair of long handle setters. Design flaw imo.


Maybe I am just unlucky, but I don't think I have ever had a brand of body grip trap that didn't do that, including victors.

I've had one slip the corner every now and then, but half the springs on these 3 dozen 220's were over the corner straight out of the box. I never had anything even close to that.

OK, I ended up buying some Belisles. Man are they a pain to set. Super stiff springs and shorter than my old Victors. I also can only set them on the furthest notch and have to flex the trap a bit to get it there. And the trigger flops around quite a bit when set. Not use to that either. Plus the darn things don't fit in my round buckets. But on the upside, when the coon gets his head in there, he is DRT. No flopping at all. Man those things kill quick. I've got some new buckets cut and I think these are gonna be great. Thanks for all the recommendations...
