    Can a K80 barrel be fit onto a Remington Model 32?

    Is it a simple job for a knowledgeable smith?

    Depends. There were at least 2 hinge pin sizes for the Rem 32. One matches the krieghoff, one does not...

    Its a hard job no matter what- even if hinge pins are the same (hinge pins can be changed of course from small to large

    You used to be able to get Ottsville to do it

    I actually shoot a Remington 32 barrel made in 1939 on my K80

    One fit right on my 32, gun closed.

    However, as stated above, my hinge pins are smaller than the K80 barrel and the barrel hangar (32 used a spacer) wouldn't allow the forearm to fit.

    It may be possible to use sleeves over the small pins, but it looks like the receiver may have to be relieved for the bigger size.

    I never followed up with the idea.

    Probably in excess of 2000.00, by the time you buy a barrel and have it fit.
