    I have an old K32 that I want to send in for service. Would you recommend sending to Kreighoff factory, or maybe Marlette? Or someplace different? It seems the service work on them is about the same price, or similar. I don't have experience with K guns.

    Whatever is easiest for you. Both K.I. and Marlette are great, as are many other factory trained independent smiths. Personally, I like Tim Ward down in Brunswick, GA. Email: GTWARD@GUNSMITHSINC.COM

    I have been shooting a Krieghoff Model 32 since late 2002 and at one point I was using the gun for both skeet and trap. I have had the gun repaired/serviced by a couple highly recommended people only to have problems keep popping up. The last repair/Service was done at Ottsville and I can say that the gun has been 100% reliable since then. In my opinion Krieghoff International is the most qualified.

    Chris Maest has worked on my 32s in the past with good results. Now I go to Ottsville because the closest restaurant serves 75 cent martinis at lunch. It makes waiting for my gun much more pleasant. The people at Ottsville are wonderful.

    I never could figure out why the Krieghoff guys thought that Log Cabin place was so good in Ottsville- who owns it? LOL

    However in Wells Mn you can get the lunch special for 5.75 and never go away hungry

    Marlette is by far the best on Krieghoffs.Probably the best trigger guy in the world. I won't let anybody else touch my guns.

    Don't know and can't find a signature. The detail of the feathers and dog's hair is amazing though.
