    Code5, You must be new to trapshooting. Welcome. What is it that you would expect to hear? Harlan shoots one, Ricky shoots one, Kay shoots one, Debbie shoots one, Jerry shoots one, Barry shoots one and so forth. Need I say more?

    What I expected was why I don't hear you guys talking about them much.
    Browning, Perazzi, Kolar, Beretta, Ljutic, etc......but not much about the other K-gun. I know who shoots them, and apparently it ain't the guys on this forum. Why?

    code5, I would assume you are very new to shooting for if you were to attend ANY shotgun event trap, skeet, sporting clays 5 stand, live birds, krieghoffs are present, any small club yo will find 5 to 10 shooters using them, with larger clubs many more, they are not bantied around as thy are virtually trouble free, there are no leaf spring breakage issues, they have excellent resale value, they handle like a sports car and are amoung the softest shooting shotguns on the planet, they are infinitly adjustable and will fit any shooters desires for impact etc.Krieghoffs are designed for a lifetime of shooting, and k-gun owners are like the silent majority, they are confident in the craftsmanship beauty and integrity of their shotguns and do not have to bitch about problems in forums that are commonly associated with other brands, should you attend a shoot, try one and see for yourself! enjoy! incinerate em!

    K guns and P guns usually dominate every Trap event. I thought my Browning Citori Plus was the cat's meow until I shot a K gun. Wow!! Better balance and trigger to say the least. 100k tune-ups are what they advertise. Strong gun.
    Been saving up for one. Dave T.

    What BigBen said in spades. A very satisfied owner of K-guns for about 2 decades.

    Since I bought my K80 Trap Special I won about $4k in magnums. Worth every penny of the $15k it costs me.

    I got my K-80 something like 20 years ago. It is marked Shotguns of Ulm, not Krieghoff. Since that time I have probably averaged winning between $100 and $200 per year. I have shot around 15,000 registered targets each year with the gun. If I continue at this rate, how long will it take to recover my +-$7,000 I paid for the gun?

    Pat, In 26.66 years it will be paid off. You are 10.33 years ahead of my payoff date. I should have bought mine earlier?
