I just looked at pricing new coni's now the interesting thing is the jaw width is 7 x 7 , now the law in Pa. is 7 1/2 inches ..
Are the 220's with the 7 x 7 jaw width legal , im assuming it is ?? Am i wrong ?

why are you droning on this? you can NOT set a trap bigger then 6-1/2 inch jaw spread on land and a conibear has to be set in a watercoarse, waterway, marsh, stream, creek, & pond. which means if your using a coni in a box or cubby within a WATERCOARSE it STILL can NOT be more then 6-1/2" jaw spread bud ....plain and simple.

Artificial Cubby: A baited enclosure constructed of natural or artificial material that is designed to
house and corral a furbearer into a body-gripping trap. Furtakers are permitted to trap furbearers using
body-gripping traps set in artificial cubbies when all of the following conditions are met: 1) The artificial
cubby is placed within an established watercourse, waterway, marsh, pond or dam. 2) The entrance to
the artificial cubby does not exceed 50 square inches.<span style="font-size: 17pt"> 3) Traps no larger than 61/2 x 61/2 inches can be</span>
<span style="font-size: 17pt">used.</span> 4) The triggering mechanism of the trap is recessed within the artificial cubby at least 7 inches
from the entrance. 5) The artificial cubby is anchored in a manner that it cannot be moved or rolled.
Note: These requirements shall not apply to body-gripping traps that are 51/2 inches or less and set in
artificial cubbies to target mink or muskrat
