1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    Compare to a 4000 dollar barrel that isnt as good

    Might be the ticket for trap doubles but these should be better for sporting than any barrel out there dont you think?

    They only made a few of these- perfect sporting barrels- handle better than the K80 version and have a slightly higher rib for better visibility

    Fixed choke but plenty of room for choke tubes

    Both barrels have 741 bore--- bottom barrel has 26 choke and top barrel has 33

    They weigh 55.4 onces and make a nomal K80 handle like a sports car

    Barely any wear- custom porting (straight line) for reduced muzzle jump and recoil sensation- ports are 4 1/8 back from muzzle to allow any choke tube instal you may want if you didnt like the fixed choke idea

    Regards from Iowa

    This IS an exceedingly rare barrel. It DOES handle better than the '80 barrel.

    I picked this up off the barrel rack at Krieghoff myself- years ago and asked them what it was- saw it sitting there

    Over the next several months we managed to negotiate a deal on it

    I'm not interested in purchasing, but am intrigued by your use of the term "custom period". Please define.

    Thanks for posting, it's an interesting set of o/u barrels.

    As I understand it- everything about this barrel was special ordered- including the bore size and the porting- the porting to provide the minimum fouling with the maximum decrease in muzzle rise and also no blow back or side affect- just up and down

    You be the judge- take a look at the picture

    Apparently to port a gun like this costs much much more as each barrel has to be hand aligned and no jig or fixture can do that and get the exactly up and down and spaced pattern

    Regards from Iowa

    I had a set of these three or four years ago and they too came directly from Krieghoff. Had Krieghoff fit them to a San Remo and then sold it. Nice feeling set up for sporting.

    I have people waiting in line at $2277

    I paid a lot for it and think it is worth more than that. Not sure how much more but find some high ribbed 34 inch Krieghoff barrel that shoots flat and tell me what the price was.

    Not that this matters but at the time- Dieter had to personally approve the sale

    Regards from Iowa
