    has anyone recently bought a K20 2 barrel set? just wanted to get a sense of what folks had paid within the last year so I can go into negotiations with the dealers and have some pricing knowledge. I am looking at a standard grade K20 28 gauge 32" barrel gun and wouldn't mind adding the 20 gauge barrel with it. I have no plans to use .410 so no need for that barrel.

    Thanks in advance.

    You picked a great gun. I use mine for hunting and skeet. I shoot the 32" for skeet and I have a 28" barrel I use for hunting. I found the 32's a bit long and heavy to carry when hunting and the 28's are a bit whippy for skeet.

    I would call several dealers. Somebody with older inventory will be able to do a little better because Krieghoff's seem to go up in price every time the dollar falls. I ended up buying mine from both Jaqua and Alamo Arms. Both have been very fair with me and they will back up what they sell. Alamo has a bit better follow up because they have a Krieghoff certified gunsmith in house. This is really and asset and I think only one other Krieghoff dealer can offer this service. Make sure you give Pam at Alamo a chance to make you happy with price, she has been very good to me.

    You might check GunsUnlimited too. They were closing out their Krieghoffs at about $100 over their cost. If they have a K-20 left you won't beat their price.

    Not sure on Pricing but that K-20 with 410 barrels is a blast. Great fun with that gauge. I have the 20ga barrels also and I find it to be high recoil. 28ga and 410 are matched well with the small frame receiver. Happy shopping!! Dave T.

    List price for a standard grade Krieghoff K-20, 20 guage is $10,700.00 and the additional 28 guage barrel is another $4,150.00. Get the right dealer and you may be able to get him to discount 10% off of list and maybe throw in a extra choke or two. Buying new, do not expect much more.

    thanks...I'm expecting to pay under $10k from most of the reputable K dealers for a 28 gauge K20. The only reason I would add a 20 gauge barrel is for when I want to plan for a South America wing shooting trip in another year (in 2012 at the earliest). I think most folks opt for a 20 vice a 28 when shooting birds in Argentina.....

    skeet: thanks for the heads up on the 20 gauge...I know the 20 would be fine for an autoloader but I did not find anyone not recommending it when Googling around for opinions on a 20 in a break action gun for Argentina...guess I'll stick with the 28 only then...

    update: finally bought a K20....28 gauge in 32" barrels....shot about a flat of 28 gauge shells today for sporting clays. This gun is amazing!!! I'm hooked on subgauge. I bought mine Clay Target Sports since I had good dealings with them when buying my K80 ProSport....

    I plan to shoot more subgauge than 12 gauge in 2011...if I was not serious about being a competitive clay shooter, I would sell my K80 tomorrow and shoot the K20 for my fun clay shooting....I will add a 20 gauge barrel later in the year. I am not too keen on .410 yet....pics of the wood below.

    Congrats on a very pretty gun. Chris M. has some nice wood upgrades! If you are only going to shoot doves in Argentina, the 28 is all you will need and the shells are $1 a box more. If you go after ducks or pigeons--take a 20,

    sernv99: She's a beauty. Really consider the 410 barrel. I'm hooked on it.
    I have the 20ga barrel and never use it. Enjoy. Dave T.

    the K20 is a fabulous gun and here's my advice. Forget about the 28 gauge. Buy it in 20 and if you want to drop to a lower recoil load just load up some 3/4 oz 20 gauge, they are the equivalent of a 28 gauge and work great. I rarely shoot anything else out of my gun. I had a 3 barrel set for my K20 Superscroll and ended up selling the 28 gauge barrels as I almost never used them. The .410 barrels are also great and I enjoy them immensely. Expect to pay around $3600 or so for a barrel unless you can find some used ones which is a rare occurrence.

    I was quoted $3500 for the 20 gauge barrels in 32" and there was someone selling like new 28 gauge and 410 barrels, both in 32", on gunbroker for a few hundred less than what the dealers are selling for them new. This was about a month ago...

    my reason to go with the 28 gauge was that I can shoot it in the 20 gauge events for subgauge sporting clays.

    sernv99 - great looking gun....very, very nice wood. I'm envious and hope in the next few years to feel confident enough about things to get off the money and buy one myself.

    Shoot it in good health (sound like my grandmother now LOL)

    Cheers
