    I'm looking at purchasing a K-80 that was manufactured in 1989... the gun is in excellent original condition.... is there anything that I should be aware of when buying a K-80 this old.
    Thanks.

    Not really. I would send it to Krieghoff in Ottsville and have them go through it though.

    One sign of wear is when the locking hood comes forward there should be a space between that and the monoblock. If this area has no space or extremely close probably several $100. to repair new will be more that an 1/8th inch.

    Thanks for this feedback...
    How about the barrels? any differences... could I put brand new barrels on a receiver that old? Thanks.

    The older barrels have a different type of ejector(screw exposed)Newer ones do not have an exposed screw. I have one of each and it is possible to switch barrels with either receiver.I don't find either one to be superior over the other. Murray
