    I heard it was to be the KY-5 so it could slide in easily to replace the KX-5 and the KS-5

    I heard a higher rib, upgraded wood, and a blued receiver, to be revealed in August, possibly at the Grand. Price around $5000, or a little more.

    That looks about right, except for that different looking stock configuration. Hmmmmmmm. I like the original stock better I think.

    Supposedly, it will cock on the break open rather than with the opening of the top lever. The pistol grip is supposed to be a little more pronounced with a more ergonomic stock. I heard that the receiver will be the black carbon nitrate finish like some of the older KS-5 Specials. I would be interested to see if the stock is beefier and more ergonomic, and if the stock on the KX-6's will fit KX and KS 5's.

    Kolar if that is an actual representation of the KX-6, it resembles a BT 100 or BT-99 Max. Surely, the Germans don't need to copy off of the Japanese?????

    thanks Ian.

    Looks to me like the K guys were torn between the Cynergy and the blaser F3.

    Ugly gun. Looks like a Browning. Saw one at the Zone shoot. Won't make it. (A looser.)

    SMS, we all know you're a huge Krieghoff fan.

    Although I no longer am a Krieghoff owner, I think it will be a big seller, especially when the price is announced.

    AverageEd better off buying a Ljutic, Kolar TS or Silver Seitz.

    A Ljutic is one ugly mother..... some DeVault stocks are really weird shaped. But both shoot like a dream. Lets wait and see.

    I like the looks of it. I sure hope the wood they are showing is representative of what will be delivered. I think AverageEd is hinting that it will be priced well. I hope so. I have been shooting a KS-5 Special for several years - wonder what I can get in trade....

    That Ljutic's a Mother I'd Like to Fire... makes my 90T seem almost "frumpy"...
