The MB-650 IL is heavy-duty from top to bottom and comes with 1/4" offset jaws and a 5 ¾” inside jaw spread and 6 1/2” outside jaw spread. 3/16” roll rod is used to laminate the jaw on the inside giving you a deeper jaw face. This custom-made trap is 4-coiled, baseplated, center swiveled and has an extra heavy-duty oversize pan which provides for a huge kill area. The pan tension is adjustable with a #10 pan bolt. Both heavy jaws are held down by a special trigger system which will keep any animal from flipping up a loose jaw. The dog has a "step-down" notch milled into it that gives you an audible click when you are lowering the pan. We've of course installed our MB Crunch Proof Swivels and heavy duty #3 select chain. Available in six jaw configurations to fit your needs. The MB-650 has a unique spring and lever system which is all one piece. All MB-650’s have an offset jaw and are 4-coiled.
**Disclaimer: We try our very best to source all Minnesota Brand trap parts within the USA. At times in the past we have had issues sourcing sufficient quantities of particular parts from our USA suppliers. It is very important to us to provide a USA made product but also be able to provide trappers with traps. Therefore, our Minnesota Brand Traps are fully assembled by our American crew in Pennock, Minnesota with either all USA made parts or a combination of USA and minimal foreign parts when necessary to provide product to the market place. The vast majority of our MB trap parts are punched just 8 miles from our shop by LFS Tool & Die Company and sufficient quantities of those parts are never an issue**
What is the difference between a regular and offset jaw?
When the trap is in the fired position and you are looking straight down on the trap if the jaws touch together it is a regular or closed jaw trap. If there is a gap where the jaws meet that is called an offset jaw trap.
