    Yes, it is a common problem.

    You're better off with a more reliable Remington 870.

    Please send those Kreighoffs to me for disposal and in return, I will send you two replacement 870s.

    The one that quit shooting was because the shooter couldn't stand to pull the trigger any more! Lol. Nice shooting guns but they kick a little.

    Stainlessbt99,

    I shoot with a guy that puts 1 1/2oz of 6's through his Bavarioun Sewell K-80 all the time. Doesn't seem to hurt it on bit. He has a checkup done it every year at the Grand.

    Sorry if my spelling is a little off. I'm not a Krieghoff guy, nor do I have $30,000 to spend on a shotgun. The funny thing is though, there are two guys that have'em.

    If you get a Krieghoff, it will ruin it for the rest of your guns,,,
    So just grab then and send them to me and I'll send you 2 very nice Beretta's

    jbmOU,
    buy a BT99 in stead of a Keiegoff, they are a lot cheaper and the barrel off the 99 can double as a car jack handle too, Or a club or a bottle rocket launcher or whatever.

    Don't know about the one that just quit shooting but the one that went off when closed is a common problem with ks-5s== there is an adjustment screw you reach thru one of two holes in the trigger guard that you turn to put it back in time--don't remember if you turn it right or left but about a half a turn is all it takes--fixed mine fine.

    Not unusual for Krieg's to break down now and again. New a buddy had one break down in a shoot off. Scared the h e double toothpicks out of everyone when he closed the gun and shot the trap house. Only shoots the other K gun and hasn't had a problem in 5 years.

    If the first example had a KS-5 Special, it has an adjustable trigger, both let off and weight. If you thoroughly clean that gun and re-adjust the "cripness" of the trigger (let off) by setting it while disassembled, you'll likely have the situation you describe; gun fires when closing it. A turn or so on the adjustment screw while all assembled will solve that one in 10 seconds. Haven't a clue why the 2nd issue but any gun can have a fatal quit with a broken part. My "special" just keeps working right so I doubt anyone would call "all" of them suspect....breakemall....Bob Dodd
