They sure don't!

Until now, I never heard the term "3/4 cock" trap. The only traps I've used are the Trius hand thrower, the "yank on the string" thrower I had as a kid, and the hydraulic jobbies (which would rip your arm off) at the skeet field. Learn something new every day!

Nice thing with 3/4 cock is you only have to complete the last 1/4 turn to
cock it. We have 2 very nice one's at my range. Having one here would be
even better.

got them off of ebay, part number CSK25 cost was about $18 each. it was a fun project, thing I like the most about the 3/4 cock is how stable they are, the 100% cock jump all over when the arm is settling to a stop.

I've never used one, so I'm having trouble imagining how they work. How well do 3/4 cock throwers throw the bird?

It seems like they would only accelerate the bird through 90° of "throwing arm pivot" whereas the old-style trap I had as a kid accelerated the bird through nearly 180° of "throwing arm pivot" (of course, the bird left the throwing arm before 180° was reached but you get the picture)...
