    I have no idea what the part is but I am thinking it just maybe called the unsingle barrel hanger. Anyway... its the part the connects the end of the barrel to the unsingle rib.

    I have the older version (its ribbed not the smooth solid one).

    Should there be any play between the hanger and the barrel?

    I have had the gun about a year as I bought it used form Chris Maest and have never noticed it before, but there is definitely some play. If I attempt to pull the rib up (away from the barrel) I can feel a little play between them.

    I don't remember any play. I remember the connection to be tight as a drum but then again I may have never noticed. I can't believe there should be any play between the rib and barrel so i am kind of concerned.

    Any answers? Just call Chris and have him handle it or is this something I can correct by tightening it up somehow.

    There should be no play. I have the same barrel and its as solid as a rock. Your lucky you bought it from one of the very best dealers of Krieghoff's. I would email him or give him a call. I am not sure how you fix it but he sure will.

    I believe some play is normal probably for barrel expansion.

    So there you go,3 say yes and 1 says no! Go to the expert, call Chris. That's why you bought your gun from a reputable and knowledgeable dealer!

    Barrel hangers on K guns and Rem. 3200s have a few thousanths play to allow for expansion when the barrel and hanger heat up while shooting. Without this clearence your gun's POI would change. HMB
