The V57A refers to the Trigger handle on a V Model Western Skeet Machine. This machine has a single stack and is pictured in the attached file. However, the same part was also used on U, US model Western Regulation and Autoloading Traps V1577, V1582 & V1583 Series traps, so we need to determine which model you have. There's a serial number on the trap which can provide some clues along with the pictures below. Once we determine which model you have I should be able to supply you the correct plug to power up the machine and release the trap. Quite often these machines are purchased off the local gun club and do not contain the plug and control cord. You'll also find the wiring diagrams, part diagrams, and manuals posted for free on our store. Just click the SHOP button and check out the "manuals" section.

Is this the plug you need? Part no. V118A 4 Prong Female Plug to fit the Receptacle on a V Model Western Self Loading Skeet Machine.

You're missing more than the plug. You'll need the master control box U408W and the 100' X400 pull cord (not shown). The U408W assembly includes the three toggle switches to cock the trap, change angles and elevate the machine.
