    Hello, I recently ran across a K-32 with an engraving pattern I have not seen before and I was wondering if anyone can help me out and provide a little information about it? The gun has an 11,7xx serial number, and as you can see from the close up of the left side, it has a flying woodcock scene on that side. Although I don't have a picture of the right side, it has a hawk attacking some ducks on it. Something else I noticed that is a little different, the game scene is semi-enclosed buy a ribbon-type of engraving if you will. Can anyone provide some enlightenment on this gun? Thanks.

    Come on folks, I know some of you out there are Krieghoff experts and I would really like to see if anyone can offer some words of wisdom on this gun. Thanks.

    I own 3 k 80's and have had several through the years. I've never seen a factory engraving like this. It's not a standard pattern. It's a fine looking receiver. I would like to see the other side. Larry

    If it's not a San Remo then what is it?

    That would make one fine hunting gun. For $3750, it would be a steal.

    I dont think it would be a steal at 3750 at all- alloy receivers are much harder to sell

    Also- there is a 15-20 percent premium on your bid depending on your method of payment. So add that to the sale price

    It also has a 28 inch barrel

    That is no one's San Remo. It is probably a European hunting model because of the MOD and IM choking and the original Model 32 stock and forearm. It probably has the 12MM untapered hunting rib that is common in Europe, but rare in the US. Any highly decorated gun like that in the US would have upgraded K-80 wood on it. In my opinion, that gun is fresh off the boat.
