    Anyone shot the Krieghoff K-80 Parcours Sporter? This is the new offering from Krieghoff and is supposed to be "Perazzi Like". For those who like Perazzi's, I wonder how "Perazzi Like" it is?

    Blaser Competition or Blaser Sport or Blaser Super Sport.

    Adjust and set up any of the three for the "Perazzi" feel if that is what you want.

    Have had the Perazzi, and nice as it is, it is behind the curve for personalizing it to you and your style.

    Just my opinion

    Parcours is just refering to engraving no different from any other k-80 otherwise. Bill

    Technically, Krieghoff refers to the gun with the new barrel configuration as the "K-80 Parcours." "Parcours Special" refers to a pattern of engraving.

    Maybe I can help. I actually own one. The new model is referred to as a K-80 Parcours (it has nothing to do with the engraving). It has the same action as the the classic K-80 configurations but the barrels, butt stock and forend are new designs. The barrels have soldered side ribs and the barrel walls are about 40% thinner than the normal K-80 and there of course are no barrel hangers. It has a rib that is flat to the action. It comes with fixed mod and imod chokes. It is intended as a sporting clays and FITASC gun. Mine weighs exactly 8lbs on a digital scale and it is very lively. The OP asked about the comparison to a Perazzi and as it happens my previous gun was an MX2000 that weighed 8lb 7oz and was also very lively and configured for sporting clays and FITASC. The Parcours is livelier still and feels better to me. It moves extremely well. Before I bought it, I shot a few hundred rounds at the World FITASC Championships and my impression was that felt recoil was less than my Perazzi. After putting about 1000 rounds through my own gun, I still feel the same way. The perception of less felt recoil may have to do with the pitch being different, and the forcing cones being longer than in the Perazzi. Krieghoff is going to sell a bunch of these guns to sporting and FITASC shooters - it is a very, very nice gun.

    "Perfectly balanced between the hands, the Parcours gives the shooter a gun that is approximately 8 pounds with the proven reliability of the K-80 receiver. Featuring 32” fixed choke, soldered rib barrels, a slimmer forearm and a totally new stock design the K-80 Parcours points and moves with ease."

    dogsnhorses -

    Thanks very much for your input! I think everyone is wondering about the recoil (at least that is what I was wondering). What does the bores of the gun measure (.740, .750)?

    I know they made this to copy the feel of a "lively" Perazzi or Beretta. My only complaint is the receiver is still K-80. The "guts" are too complicated to work on. If a Perazzi breaks, you can put in a new spring yourself. BUT, most K-80's don't break though!

    Interesting...the DT 11's selling point is heavier weight and the new barrel internals....the marketing talking points are less recoil and better patterns....

    The DT 11's I have seen have awesome wood....some people hate the blue stripe and the trigger pull (can be improved)....

    The K-80s selling point is less weight and improved MOI...(low gun disciplines)

    They can say all they want about this K-80 being a sporting clays gun.....but, it sure looks-like a FITASC-specific gun to me.....(livelier gun for FITASC)

    Matt. imho,when i shouldered one i thought Browning narrow rib trap gun 50-60's vintage,solid side ribs and a narrow top rib.From what the importer told me ,these were aimed at the English market,hence the browning "feel".Regards Ross

    Woodson, I haven't measured my bores or the chokes. The bores are stamped as 18.6. I have had a number of people shoot the gun, including many K-80 owners and some 9.5lb Kolar owners and aside from everyone saying "Wow, that thing is dynamic.", almost everyone says "Holy smokes, the recoil is way lower than I thought it would be." Before this gun came out I swore I would never own a K-80. I was (and am) perfectly happy with my Perazzi, but I just love the Parcours. Mine is a Super Scroll and has outstanding wood.

    I read in some review that this gun can be ordered with Briley flush choke tubes.

    The original plan was that you could order them with Briley thinwalls but I don't believe they are doing that now. Nothing to stop you from sending it out once you have it though. I prefer fixed chokes so it was a non-issue for me.

    Recoil no problem, 1oz loads are max for FITASC.

    Sporting clays is growing at a fast pace Krieghoff is catering to that part of the market for good reason. I shot my K80 for sporting and my Perazzi also the Perazzi was my choice for Sporting as it was lighter and moved faster than my heavier K 80. I do shoot my K 80 for trap it is a very good choice heck even some big dogs copied me.
