    I mounted a Krieghoff parcours today, in the fixed choke sporting version. Didn't get to shoot it, as the lady that had it, quickly vanished. But I still was impressed. Nice high tech barrels, fast handling, would be good for live birds too, seemed like 8 Lbs,
    low rib, beautiful turkish wood, and according to Lisa, low recoil as well.
    Anybody else will like to share?

    Somebody is offering me one with a 30" barrel, I thought they only made them in 32" length.
    What would be a good price to pay, if you can find a good used one?

    According to their website they don't offer that model in 30", I looked b/c I have never seen one in that length. Make sure you are not confusing it with the parcours engraving pattern.

    So is that a trap gun or a sporting gun?

    It's a sporting/FITASC gun. Livlier than std K-80, especially those with factory screw chokes.

    The K-80 Parcours standard barrels that have been produced in Germany are all 32" to this date. It's possible someone cut a 32" barrel to 30" and added chokes. Possible but not probable. Finding a used one at this early juncture will be difficult. The major American distibutor from Florida told me in Feb. 13
    that they were having a difficult time obtaining them new.

    A new standard grade will run about 11K.

    So the gun being offered to me is just a K-80 with Parcours engraving. That's what I thought, cuz the person wanted $8500 with an extra barrel and 3 Briley small guage chokes.
    Thank you guys, no matter what they say, T/S com has the best answers and experts, even though some people bad mouth some of you,lol.

    i was surprised of the new gun's name of parcours, that it would confuse people like me of the engraving of one model vs the new model ??

    They have a parcours engraving, parcours sp├ęcial engraving and the parcours gun.
    I was told the only difference is the special or perazzi like barrels(hope they don't fall apart) but the receiver is the same. Seems like the wood is down to minimum also for the overall weight of 8lbs.
    you can come close by getting a k32 barrel and backbore it, slim down the for end.

    Parcour is a French word for a "layout" Used in FITASC sporting. Sprtnclays just described my gun, 32" fixed choke M32 bbls, backbores to .745 with Briley chokes, series 12, just under 8#

    Joe: Would .745 backbore be good for pigeon also? .740 is more like it.
    PS: I saw a video from England about the Parcours, and it just seems like they want to compete with the Blaser F3 competition model, that is priced much lower.
    The focus and key is on the 8 Lb overall weight, accomplished by a completely revised stock design, with a slim forearm, and 32" barrels weighing 1500 grams or less.
    Between the hands weight with center of gravity at hinge pins is accomplished.
    The receiver looks like the same o, same o, proven K-80 receiver, that to me it still a little chunky, liking the slim F3 receiver better.
    The barrels are the best feature and second comes the new avant garde sexy stock design.
    I will take my Blaser SS Baronese, and make a stock to resemble the K-80 Parcours dimensions, and take a Blaser barrel and have it back bored, and tuned to reduce the weight. Although I would like to have 30" flat rib barrels for flyers, and I don't now if the SS comb can be adjusted low enough for that low rib.

    Only an idiot would name the new gun after an engraving pattern on an old gun...... They should have named the new gun a K32 and really confused people. l.g.

    Clearly meant for the FITASC sporting market, the world-wide sporting game. English sporting only shot here and the UK. Two reasons for back-boring, weight and recoil. When the mfgrs offer big-bore bbls, the weight is actually greater than bbls. with smaller bores, especially when they have factory screw chokes. World of difference in feel between a 32" K80 s/ck sporter than a proper FITASC gun.
