    Aside from sending off to a gunsmith or Krieghoff...Barrel fit is excellent. However, when assembling the forearm to the barrel when fitted to the receiver the forearm locking lever will not lock into place. Any advice other than the obvious?...

    Can be Very Simple....To Someone in the Know. Can be Very Costly to the Beginner..a swipe of a File here..a swipe of a File there and Their Done. Same Goes for You...You'll be Done too, And be in Need of Someone to Fix it. The Metal that need's to be Removed is Easily Removed...VERY Hard to put Back. Have a Smith do it and Save in the End. Shoot Well..Shoot Often, Bart....
    P.S. Been There...Done That !!

    I had that problem recently and found out the screws holding the front irom to the wood were about a 1/2 turn loose. Bulge.

    thanks for the info...the screws are tight...I know the whippy doodle on the barrel that locks the forearm down needs to be reconfigured just a bit..( barrel lug needs to filed in the correct spot)...Thanks for the help...unless I can find a reference somewhere addressing fitment...I'll make a trip to see Chris in NJ..
    Or at a minimum I will make the call and check price and schedules before going any farther.

    thanks

    Dave

    Try taking the wood off the forearm, and install the metal holding nthe forearm and you can see what needs to be done.

    Put a little white shoe polish on the barrel lug then install the forearm. Where the shoe polish is rubbed off you will know where to file just a couple of strokes at a time. Bulge.

    Dave,

    I understand the action should be "timed" properly too. At least that is what I have been told. Be wary of your local kitchen table gunsmith.

    Kerry Allor is local for me and a K-gun authorized smith. He has always done a good job for me (3 - K-guns) I can PM his contact info if you wish. He is located in SE Michigan.
