    Thinking about a K80 Trap Special for doubles. If you are shooting one I would like to hear your pros and cons about your experiences. Also, standard TS rib or Pro rib.

    Thanks.

    I enjoy shooting my Trap Special. The only thing I changed was I went from the 32" O/U barrels to the 30". These were easier to swing for me. If I were to buy another, I would buy a K-80 Trap Special, 34" Un-single, 30" O/U, No wood and have a custom stock built right away. I did all of this separately.

    Good luck.

    Not every one can shoot a high rib. Try one first.

    I love mine now: but I struggled for months.

    I think I agree with Cory...I have the TS in 34/32...I don't shoot the o/u barrels...only shot 50 rounds with them, for me they swing slow and heavy.
    I shoot my MX10 O/U for doubles, works great.
    I really like the unsingle for singles and caps. Probably would have gotten the 30" O/U bbls if I did it again. My P gun is 32"OU.
    Good luck, puablo

    I know Rick Marshall shoots the 30" and Harlan Campbell shoots 32" but he did try the 30"s. I shot both my old stlye 32" Krieghoff barrels and the high rib 32' for a while on two different guns. The high ribs gets your head more upright.

    As far as weight goes, I actually weighed Perazzi 32" MX 10 barrels and my Krieghoff 32" Trap Special barrels. They weighed the same. Now the Krieghoff barrels do seem to swing slower and I would say it's due to the longer reciever putting the weight a bit farther from your shoulder.
