    If the pic is right, looks like they changed it to a top single, instead of a mid single. Looks like a totally new gun.

    Design is way to radical of a change from the norm. Unless its significantly cheaper than the KX5, I see this being a flop (much like the Cynergy was until they redesigned it to be more traditional), and I see the value of the KX5 going up as they become harder to find. If they kept the trigger guard shape and stock shape more traditional, they'd probably have a winner, but other than that, I think it would easily be confused with a Browning (my first thought was BT100 when I saw pics).

    Not only does it look like the BT-100, but they changed the inside of the gun. From what I have heard, the hammer is no longer set by the top lever. A simple effective design changed from I believe four moving parts to something else that can wear out and go wrong. Why? Now try and charge $5000 or more and put a new-fangled looking stock on it as well. Seems to me they tried this before, with the KX-5. Those changes where more useful and less dramatic. It was the $5000 price tag that had to be dropped in order for them to sell. When the KX-5 came out people then said, why not spend another $1000 and get a used unsingle K-80, or Kolar for that matter. We all seen what happened to there pricing. I think that is going to be the case even more now because of the state of the economy, and gun market of today. I will stick to my KS-5 Special, that I by the way have been offered very close to what I paid for it 12 years ago, just recently. They are great guns. If it is not broke, do not try and fix it! I understand you have to change things once in a while to bring people into your market, but sometimes it eliminates more than you gain. Just my opinion. I wish them luck, but feel this one might not make it as long.

    At leaast wait till you pick one up and shoulder it. The balance feels different but good. I'm not sold on it either but before I condem it, I would like to take one to the practice trap and see how she handles on the test course.

    Comes with steel shot choke tubes? Buy lead shot tubes as an extra? That's a dandy marketing ploy if I ever saw one. Not enough adjustment in the vertical movement of the comb where I could shoot this gun, 1-1/4 inches is as low as it goes. I'd planned on looking at one at the Grand but I'll pass this time.

    Hap- it comes with STEEL chokes only, titanium chokes are an add-on. All choke tubes will shoot lead shot.

    Looks like crap! very disappointing- this is a loser.

    I don't know about anyone else but it is important to me to shoot a gun that looks good and this is not it!

    Longtime K80 shooter and owner of many!

    Have had 2 K-80`s. One I still own. Liked them both.

    But, this gun is different. The stock is the only thing I don`t like at first blush.

    Wonder why they didn`t bring the bottom of the stock straight down instead of beveling it at the rear?
