    Buckshot,
    Thank you for posting the pictures so the rest of us could see an accurate representation of the gun. From the original post I would have thought the gun was in "like new" condition.

    Like new????? Maybe he meant mechanically, not cosmetically.

    Antigues, Not a good way to make friends if you intend to sell stuff on here very often. From the pictures they were accurate in their criticism. Just because you sold it doesn't mean you described it accurately. You priced it right is why it sold. I would not have been happy with description if I bought it as described nor would many others on this forum. Regards, Bill

    James,
    I don't think Donna would approve of that foul mouth!!!!!

    I'm glad you sold the gun.

    This has been an interesting thread, because I own a gun that looks much like this one. Usually, a picture is worth a thousand words, but I'm not sure about these pictures. I'm not sure the bluing is as worn as it appears in the pictures. For example, look at the latch in picture no. 2. I'm sure that it isn't corroded as much as the picture makes it look. The bluing wear on the receiver is common for this model, but I have never seen the blue tint that the pictures show. I just don't know about the bluing lost around the ports.

    Overall, I wouldn't rate the gun as like new because of the replacement sights, barrel work, porting, and apparent bluing wear, but, because it sold so quickly, I doubt that it is as bad as the pictures make it appear. I do know if I buy a gun that is like new, it better be close to being a pristine gun.

    I am not taking either side here but just commenting on the pictures displayed

    The wear in the picture is obvious- those that say it isnt- arent looking at the same pictures I see here

    the pins have bluing worn off them- small pins and hinge pins

    the receiver has been "shined" and the nickle might actually have been worn through- also the hinge pin locking pin we can see isnt perfectly straight as it is on a new gun

    the barrels have scratches and bluing wear

    the receiver side we see in addition to having been "shined" appears to have some scratches

    the wood has wear on the finish and obvious deep dings- in just the limited amount that can be seen

    the front edge of the forearm iron appears to be dinged

    the adjustable hanger has wear from a lot of use

    I dont know what the gun is worth- serial number and other mechanical factors are very important

    But regardless- the surface of this gun is well worn- and those that disagree have some position in this we dont know about or just havent seen very many K80s

    note also we only see one partial side of the gun and barrel

    regards from Iowa

    Gene

    Jim I am only commenting on the photographs- I have no idea if that is your gun or not- thats why I said I am not taking sides here

    I have seen more Krieghoffs than I can remember and also looked at a lot of photographs-

    My guess is the wrong photos got posted

    regards from Iowa

    Has the buyer returned the gun for a refund yet?

    I doubt it Krieghoffkrusher, but if he does return it antiques said he could have his money back and he'd even pay the return shipping. That's a pretty good deal.

    Just like they say in the car bussiness there is an a*s for every seat. I hope the buyer breaks 100 and the seller runs into my mother oh how I hated the taste of that soap.

    Pictures don't lie, apparently people do. How is Gene wrong about the condition? The pictures clearly show a very well used K-80 that has not been taken care of and then you get defensive about people calling you out on your description that states "like new"? It's sad to know that some people have no problem deceiving others to make a buck.

    I guess many of us have differing views on what constitutes "like new". My definition is a year or two old with no blueing wear or handling marks whatsoever-kinda a "safe queen".

    Others may vary but "nice" might be a better description!!

    Now your just making up stories to cover your a$$. The fact has not changed that your description was very misleading. It's beside the point that you sold the gun. Apparently the buyer was not looking for a gun in "like new" condition. The whole point of argument here is the fact that you chosse to mislead the users of trapshooters.com by listing a gun that was not even close to the condition described. As a former avid antique collector I know many good honest dealers but for every good one there are five dishonest swindlers that take advantge of people for a profit. I don't think I need say more.
