    Do you remember the Rottweil AAT shotguns? Well they had problems where the extractors were machined in the barrell mono-bloc and if you caught them early enough there would be cracks in the shell chamber, the weak point was the extractor area, I was wondering if the K-80 had the same design, as this is the area that seems to be blowing up on them. At least from the picyures that were posted here before someone removed them, was wondering who and why they were removed.

    A friend of mine had a crack in the monobloc of his K80. He bought the gun new and had nearly 200,000 rounds through it when he noticed a crack. Kreighoff gave him a new barrel. JRM

    I sometimes feel that more guns blow up on this site than at gun clubs.
