    Can anyone tell me what kind of chokes these are? They are in a K-80 early model single barrel, but are obviously not the current K-80 choke system.

    Tom Seitz did barrel work on it.

    Thanks!

    Those are K-gun chokes. I have the same ones with my O/U. HMB

    Thanks, guys. I had thought so, but bought a "skeet" k-80 choke and threads were at the bottom. Some of the guys at the club said all k-gun chokes are threaded at the bottom - obviously bad info!

    Appreciate your help. I just bought the wrong choke.

    Wait, those are threaded on the top, and not the bottom? I have only seen the treads on the bottom, but maybe Krieghoff changed this early in production. These may not be Krieghoff. I did not see the treading. The extended part does look similar to the later Krieghoff steel choke though.
