That Bridger is probably going to be your best choice. I am not sure anyone makes a #4 or#5 in a full round jaw.

I made a lot of calls around and no one knew of a full round #4 or #5. The one in your pic looks like a #1.75 or #2 but of course pics are deceiving.

We had a used everything emporium place in Auburn, Ne. had 2 BIG traps one looked store bought the other may have been Blacksmith made. Gary died 4 or 5 yrs ago and I Don't think they did any thing but lock the doors, I don't frequent that area unless I am going to the scrap yard to get welding iron. I will ask a few friends, but estates and family and widows can get awkward.

I have been doing a lot of calling around looking for one. I found a perfect one but I am sure it is out of your budget

No luck on this. They went to swap meets and after a year they trashed/scrapped or gave away until it was GONE. They said if Gary never sold it out the door they wouldn't do any better.

How much are you looking to spend. Of course as little as possible but what is a realistic budget?

I am not a trapper so consider that fact when I say I was visualizing a more aggressive trap with TEETH and similar to the ones Bugs Bunny and the cartoon crew would fear monger their audience with.
If you are just wanting a trap for a "DOOR YELPER" why not take a shot at making one? The only restrictions on the imagination is your ability .

I talked to a guy last week that had a coilspring with teeth but it was not a full round.

Thanks for trying!!
Still wondering what your budget is. I have spent a lot of time and energy searching around on this. I even paid an upgrade on my phone to talk with folks in Canada.

Holy Cow Bill. Please don't spend money on something for me!!
If I could get something for 30 or 40 bucks it would be great.
There will be swap meets popping up soon, I will find something tis summer.
Thanks, you can take a break now!

I really do not think you will find what you are looking for as I do not think it was ever made by any company. I think you will find a full round #4 or #5 to be nonexistent. The Bridger is going to be the closest

I forgot you wanted round jaws
Stumbled on this square 1 was using in my poultry yard years ago.. I have a few #3 Victor round jaws pretty near this size buried neath some stuff. This is a 3 or 4 Pioneer .

This 1 has off set jaws. I saw only 1 close to this when I googled pioneer coil spring traps that was not the off set version.
