    From the Krieghoff Website:

    Krieghoff discontinued the KX-5 model in 2011 and now offers the KX-6 Single Barrel Trap Model. All Krieghoff products are sold through a network of authorized dealers throughout the nation. Click here for a dealer list.

    Apparently their website isn't updated with the KX-6 info yet?

    It's propably just going to be a high rib version of the KX-5 with a little different wood. Don't expect a whole new gun.

    OK Ed, question is would you buy a KX-5 now or wait on a KX-6?

    The KX-6 will cock the traditional way and not with the toplever!! That's my guess.

    I shot a K80 with a PFS stock last week and a fixed full choke. I absolutely crushed the birds. Probably the very best gun I have ever had the priviledge of shooting.

    To change the design of the mechanicals of the KX and KS-5's would be a big mistake for the KX-6. The fewer parts you use, the less there are to replace or wear out. I do not belive there is a better designed SBT gun out there. Shot mine for nine years before I had to send in for service. I heard from someone who actually talked to KI, that the KX-6 is coming out in August. It will have nicer wood, and some minor changes. Price around $5000.

    I called Krieghoff when I saw this last week. They said the big unviel is at the Grand American. Dealers should have specs and info any day now.

    Tim, I would be divulging more than I promised I would if I answered that question. All I can say is that I think all of you will be pleasantly surprised about several things.

    I do know that this new model will incorporate a higher rib.

    Take it to the bank.

    I'm pretty sure that the bank is not a good place to take a shotgun.
