    Only Krieghoff knows. I've been looking for the make of my K32 for a while now, and I can't find it anywhere.

    If you have the original barrels, the proof date is on the bottom of the barrels.
    Example... I have S/N 4421 , proofed in 0968....(Sept 1968). hope this helps, Randy

    Just figure that the proof dates are probably 2-3 months before the gun was built. Mike

    Is there still a K-32 out there with original barrels? Actually, my wife's .410 made in 1974 still has the original barrels on it.

    I was at John Allems some 20 odd years ago right after he bought all the remaing Dupont inventory. There were crates of new recievers from many serial ranges. and thosands of barrels. Many were put together fitted and numbered by customers orders making barrel proofs a mute point in my opinion. I personaly purchased case fresh recievers in the 7000 and 10,000 ranges from him. Jeff

    Mine are October 1968, with a serial number of 35XX (San Remo).

    Just got the K32 Trap O/U, and look forward to shooting it next week.

    I have serial #299, made in early 1958. Almost exactly my age, strangely enough.

    Actually, there are quite a few Model 32's out there with original barrels. As this gun becomes more collectible (and that is quickly happening now) the fact they have their original finish, barrels, wood, etc., will become more and more important in terms of value. The ones which have been "messed with" will be considered "shooters" only - and priced accordingly.

    The Model 32 is quickly becoming one of those "shooting collectibles", like the Winchester 12 & 21 as well as the Colt Single Action, the Colt 1911 (1911A1, etc.) and the early N-frame S&W .44's..... meaning you can enjoy shooting them, but originality will still add additional value.

    Everytime someone separates a Model 32 from its original barrels, wood, etc. - it adds value to the remaining intact originals.
