I'm looking for the old style leg hold traps. The ones that actually have "teeth" on the jaws. Something smaller around the 4-6" range. Before anyone gets their panties into a wad, I'm getting this as "decor", so I don't plan on actually using it. I still want the real deal though.

Actually, I've been looking for them as well for Zombies, but realized that their legs would just tear off and they'd just spin around.

And you do know these are illegal for use in the state of Florida?

I was thinking about ebay, but want something thats decent quality. Maybe if I can find some older ones in good shape that'd work. Yes, I know that they're illegal in FL. Thats one reason why I said that I don't plan on using it. I still want it to be functional though. If I was just looking for one to use, there's alot of them out there. I just haven't seen many of the old style

Isn't the use of these against the law in most states? It is in Indiana.

I don't think they have been made for many years. I used them back in my trapping days in the 1970s. We used them mostly for beaver, then moved on to conibear type traps for most sets. I think Oneida(Victor?) was one of the last to make a leghold trap with teeth.

Thanks sourdough. I'm going to try a google search on them and see what comes up. Again, I don't plan on actually using this. I'm just the type of person that doesn't want something just to look at. I want it to be as functional as the orginal as much as possible. Thats why if I ever got an old wall hanger BP I'd still get one that could shoot, even if I only fired it once just to say that I did.
