    I called Krieghoff today to order a part for my KX-5. During the conversation I was told that production of the KX-5 would be discontinued "later this year". I was assured that parts and service will continue to be available as always.
    This was news to me, are you all aware of this? I must be living in a cave.

    Jess, This probably explains why some dealers have been running specials under $5K for the KX-5 recently to clear out the stocks. I suspect that Kreighoff may be coming out with an updated gun to replace the KX-5, probably something with a higher rib to compete with Kolar TS and Perazzi TM-9.

    I think the KX was to be a cheaper Krieghoff gun for those who could not afford the KS and other models. I for one did not like the KX. Then again, I did not shoot the two KS 5 Special models I owned very well either. One was 32" and the other was 34". I just can't shoot a mid single. P gun for me.Ray.....

    Don't buy KX-5s now wait until OHIO STATE SHOOT and GRAND AMERICAN for drastically reduced prices, Dealer cost now is just a little over $3000 if they buy 5 of them.

    Good advice, Gary. In this economy, there could well be a lot of "good" prices at the Grand.
