    I am looking at a KS5 with a soft touch, no case. It looks real clean but it only has one hanger. Asking price is $2000. Is that about the going rate?
    Are they a reliable and good shooting gun?

    You'll be alright. But operate the gun first to insure that it shoots. And check the bore and choke.

    MIA said it best. If it's a fixed choke barrel make sure to check it out with a bore guage prior to purchasing.

    Hangers are easy to come by, but there is a difference in choke tube barrels and fixed.

    newcastle,

    I was referring to the barrel hangers. They are different because of the barrel od is bigger on the tube models (Krieghoff swells the ends of the barrel on the tube guns).

    When you make your purchase, send it back to Krieghoff International for an annual and any needed updates. They can set the point of impact for you as well.
    I can not say enough good things about KI service, and the KS5.
    $2,000 is a very fair price.

    I should have noted that there is a number stamped on the end of the hanger.

    0 = 100% high POI

    1 = 90/10

    2 = 80/20

    3 = 70/30

    4 = 60/40

    5 = 50/50

    These are approximate and will vary from shooter to shooter.

    So it sounds like the KS5 is a reliable long living gun.
