    I am looking at a k32 combo 30/34 with case.
    There have been some upgrades, like double release triggers.
    It is a standard grade with mod.-imp. mod o/u, and a full single
    Any Ideas on what problems I might run into?
    I think I can get this gun for $2000.00 Good deal or not
    Gun is about 85% with a few handling marks. Thanks for the info. Ric

    Hey Ric,

    Question for you, do you shoot a double release?

    I am looking for a 32 with Double Release. I am interested in the parts if you are not using them.

    Take care,

    Jim

    ric m, there isn't a reason in the world to start changing out M32 parts to K-80 parts as many folks do. If this gun is in good shape mechanically and it shoots well for you, the $2000 figure should be a terrific buy. Mine was bought for a similar price a few years ago and it's served me quite well through trap doubles, sporting clays, and skeet. I had no use for the single barrel and sold it to buy 28" barrels for the skeet and sporties and, of course, kept the 30" trap O/U barrels. The one thing that went wrong over the years was one broken firing pin - and that just occurred last month. Do shoot the gun and be sure it makes you feel warm and fuzzy all over before deciding....breakemall....Bob Dodd

    Wow. I paid slightly more than that for my gun with just the O/U barrels, no stock work, choke tube'd, and regular pull triggers.

    Sounds like a great deal to me! I'm also looking for a release trigger!

    No argument Sir finger, but my point is valid for the fellow looking at the gun IF it works well for him. I've shot both the M.32 and K-80 and frankly haven't any sensation at all that one trigger feels better than the next. A guy buying a M.32 shouldn't be made to believe he'll have to spend $1000 to alter it with K-80 parts; there are many who are perfectly satisfied with the M.32 as it is including many K-80 enthusiasts who prefer the M.32 barrels. After all, the K-80 is "newer" but it originally only came to life to break the exclusive hold Europa had on the sales of Krieghoff shotguns.....breakemall....Bob Dodd

    Now, that's really insulting...;-), yes, I think we best begin our own thread and call each other names just to ensure a place in the BS.Com Hall of Fame.....breakemall....Bob Dodd

    Thank you all, I do not shoot release but I have done so in the past so release won't be a problem.
    I am shooting the k32 next weekend, That should give me the fuzzies.
    I forgot to mention that the $2000.00 price tag is in Canadian dollars, That is about $1740.00 USD. So after reading all the feedback this IS a good deal.

    Dodd, you are correct. Finger, K-32 hammer springs don't break, K-32 sear springs break and these can be replaced with the more reliable K-80 double coil springs without spending a spool for the sear spring upgrade. A person of your limited knowledge should not be offering advice.
