    I need to raise the POI by 6 inches on the bottom barrel of a K-80 O/U.

    The gap between barrels measures .125" - there is no marking on the hanger.

    Could anyone tell me if I have a standard #4 hanger?

    Does anyone have a number 2 or number 1 hanger they wish to sell? If so, please email me at DVerna001xxx@aol.comxxx. Just drop the x'x.

    Thanks,

    Don

    I was told by Krieghoff that I didn't need to buy extra barrel hangers. That I could just trade in the one I have for the one I need. Dave T.

    The lower the number the higher the point of impact. Trap shooters use about #2 and skeet shooters use about #7. Only effects POI of lower barrel. Also there are two types of hanger, one for fixwd choke barrels and one for barrels with screw in chokes. HMB

    You are correct - I should have stated fixed choke barrels.

    Pat,
    I will take the measurement and call Krieghoff tomorrow.

    DTrykow,
    I bought the gun used and I doubt Krieghoff will so a trade - at least I would not expect them to. I hope you are right as I hear these little pieces of steel are not cheap.

    Thanks guys for your help. Jerbear has a contact who may be able to help. If not, I will need to get a hanger from Krieghoff and pay retail.

    If anyone has a number 1 or 2 hanger they wish to sell (or trade?) I would be interested.

    Don
