A little while back I bought some Bridger 220ís and Duke 220ís to compare the traps side by side. As you can see in the video there is entirely too much play in the Bridgers and it is like that with all of them.

Too bad they are not right from the factory. I would not buy more if I were you.

That said it's an easy fix. Just clamp the trigger in a vice on the sides of the rivet, and then drive a nail in on each side of the notch to spread out the notch so it'll hit the dog further from the trap frame.

Wow I would say that is a little excessive.

Agreed and thank your for the fix.
