If you really wanted them ,why wouldn't Bakers minkpan or Wild River pans work .

The size difference from a 1 1/2 is not much , might just need a little twek.

1 1/2 duke pans fit a no.1 real nice and fill the hole good. Nice compact trap to put in small blind-set spots.

My Wild River 1.5 pans will work on most #1 and #11 longspirngs that are attached with a bolt.

#1 coils are hard to get a bigger pan on because the levers are so narrow when closed.

Replaced the stock pan of a Duke #1 1/2 coilspring with a Wild River pan . . .



. . . and replaced the stock pan of a Bridger #1 coilspring with a Duke #1 1/2 pan.



Thanks hippie!

Good deal, your welcome Muskrat.

When i put them on Duke no.1's, i did trim the sides a touch with tin-snips. Needed? not sure but i didn't take much off. Maybe an 1/8th on each side or so.

My favorite mink blindset trap.
