    The kx5 has adjustable rib and the forearm has a different lockup...

    Is it a ks5 special(adjustable rib ver. ks5}? which is basically the older version of the kx5.

    I would agree that you should be able to get a kx5 for that which is the newer version.

    The is the KS-5, Adjustable rib but only by changing the hangers. Gun in great condition is less than 3500. Not as desirable as the other models because of the hanger arrangement.

    KS-5 Special, Adjustable rib via set screws. Trigger is adjustable for pull weight and position. Love the KS-5 Special. 3500 is a fair price if its in very good condition.

    KX-5, Not much different than the KS-5 Special, some minor improvements. Nice Gun, of course its the most expensive because its the latest model. 3500 would be a real good price.

    Most parts are interchangeable between the KS and KS Special, the KX has some differences that make parts unique to it (ie. forearm is not interchangeable)

    I owned a KS-5 Special for many years and to this day it is my favorite single barrel trap gun. Lasts several lifetimes, dirt simple and reliable. Over 20,000 rounds thru mine and nothing but a pleasure. If I were in the market for a KS Special or KX I would pick the one in best condition/price. I really dont differentiate between the two. Not crazy about the regular KS with the hanger adjustment. I am sure someone with more insight will chime in.

    p.s. The stock recoil pad is the most awful pad ever invented. I cant understand K's thinking there. Get a new pad before you even shoot it.

    I have a friend that has a KX-5 for sale. He's asking $4K for it and it has about 500 rounds through it. Drop me a note if you're interested.

    Yeah... too bad someone ruined that gun by dishing out the stock. A hatchet job like that bring tears to my eyes..

    I have a KS-5 Special that I bought second-hand about 4 years ago. Paid $3,000 for it plus 43 boxes of factory Remington Premier shells. Seller also threw in some extras, cleaning equipment, etc. Had adjustable Graco length of pull recoil pad installed. It does have an adjustable trigger for travel as well as pull weight. And no it's not for sale.
