Jacob Barnes makes and sells these. I typically use the No mol style traps, but these are designed to replace the OOS traps. They are well built.

He is a great guy and really good to work with, his company (Viking Product Supplies) makes a lot of NWCO tools and products.

I was told that victor has redone the OOS to make it more like the Gen 2 trap again and they should be out in May. Iíve sent a second message for validation. But hopefully they realized their mistake.

Hopefully Victor fixes their vertical spike style plunger trap while they're at. Those used to be great mole traps until they severely weakened the quality.

Yes. Itís not made in the USA. They are imports. The manufacturer sent me one to try out and I didnít like it. The spring was grossly overpowered. I regularly use old school victors with powerful springs but the springs on these traps are just too much.
