I have a few #0 double long springs, and have seen many over the years. But, I have never seen any advertised in the catalogs. Animal Trap Company did make and advertise a double long spring #1 trap the #11. I have talked to several trappers that said they added a spring to #0s. I believe that the #0 Victor double long spring is a trapper modification. The jaws on these traps are the same on both ends and make it easy and functional to add a spring.

I think snakecollector is on the right track. Especially concerning the shape of the jaws on a #0 long spring. I donít recall ever seeing a #0 with asymmetrical jaws.

Early zeros were different, later permit dual springs. I was waiting for snakecollector's input as he has more catalogs than I do. I have owned so many 0 double longs(used to call them double zeros) that I wonder if they might have been factory assembled at one point but I have no catalogs listing them for sale. I have had numerous trappers proudly proclaim that "they made those' as if awed by his own engineering prowess. Easy to convert from single to double springs and a fairly useful inexpensive trap for small footed critters. Unless someone finds a catalog listing offering double zeros commercially, I will continue to suspect that all existant were trapper rejiggered.
