    Steve,

    Are you referring to Krieghoff release triggers?

    Thanks,

    There may not be one that extends beyond Remingtons original Model 32 patent. Since the K80 is basically the evolution of the Rem 32, and contains no new technology (minor design modifications don't count), it probably wouldn't have been eligible to be patented.

    Thank you for replying.

    1. Pull trigger 2. Not sure about this one. The Remington trigger was modified and as such may well have been eligable as it was not just a tweek. Krieghoff call it grandly 'Universal Trigger system (UAS)'. However, If I get to the bottom of the mystery I will post my findings. SteveB

    The Universal Trigger System (UAS) is on the Semprio and some of their other rifles, but not the K80, at least according to the Krieghoff Int'l website.

    Years ago there was talk that the trigger was designed as aftermarket by a gentleman named Miller who was responsible for a number of trigger improvements/designs for various companies guns. Maybe someone has a Remington 32 w/ a miller trigger?

    Elmer and Howard Miller assisted the promoters of the Krieghoff shotgun in their search for a reliable trigger to install in the new shotgun. The original trigger submitted for approval was a Remington and was not acceptable. Elmer and Howard Miller gave the "promoters" a trigger that would satisfy the people who held the pursestrings. Although the Miller design got the project off the ground, I have no idea what trigger of whose design was installed in Krieghoff shotguns after the prototype period. The information about the "trials triggers" was given to me in person by Howard Miller. I had asked Howard about the Krieghoff project and he showed me a photograph of Heinrich Krieghoff and Hermann Goering, arm and arm, that had been presented to the Millers in appreciation for the assistance given in the trigger problems in the Krieghoff project. I have no idea where that historic photograph is today. Correct information about the Krieghoff project is not common today, but what little information I offer is from the horse's mouth, in my opinion.

    Most PATENTS are good only for 14 years for anything mechanical in the USA.

    Then anybody can make it.

    I looked up how long is a patent good for, Google Search it.
