Yes they did. I bought a dozen back in the late 60's- very early 70's.

Oneida Victor of Ohio is currently making traps with the name "Blake & Lamb on the pan. These are NOT like the original B&L

Original B&L have 3 distinguishing features

- a flat cross piece with a post pan. Newer B&L have a humped cross piece and clamp pan, like a Victor.
- lock link chain. Newer B&L have a twin-loop chain, like a Victor.
- more rounded spring end. Newer B&L have a more tapered spring end, like a Victor.

If you take a trap and hold it in profile view at eye level, you can see the shape of the spring end. Newer traps are V shaped. Older B&L are more U shape.

Original B&L made 4 types of # 1 long spring traps -

Single long, single jaw
Single long, double jaw
Double long, single jaw
Double long, double jaw

All of them are out there on the used market. You just have to keep looking..

The old B&L had a very good spring design, I don't know why the "Victor" people can't make the springs like the old B&L.

The old rounded spring #1 longs that B and L made are amazing. Great Coon traps. Very strong. I have a couple dozen. I wish I had more!

In my experience selling used traps, Trappers either really like or really dislike that model of B&L single long stoploss. The folks that dislike those stoploss don't like the way the guard part is set up. Not sure why.

Because they don't use it properly.I wedge the delay bar under the little bent part of the jaws sticking out the front of the frame.This way the stop loss bar never fails to trip.

Which has probably resulted in losing muskrats or whacking their knuckles trying to set the trap. That wire bar packs a punch. LOL
