    They are both great guns. Krieghoff recommends annual maintenance and it is easy for a shooter to replace the leaf springs in a Perazzi by himself.

    I have both and to tell the truth there both great guns. That being said I prefer the Krieghoffs. They feel a bit lighter and for me swing better and faster. As far as the annual service goes Ive had my first one over 30 years ,dont know how many shell thru it,with never a "service" preformed. I guess I got a good one..Ray p/s just sold my last perazzi.

    pardon me, but this is a completely stupid question. Even if you get any semi-meaningful answers, what criteria was used and how was it evaluated. Like asking, who do you like better, Elmer Fudd or Daffy Duck. And, you're looking for a mature answer to an immature question! LOLOL...

    Never owned a P gun so cant say anything there. I do own a K 80 T.S. and love the hell out of it.

    Both guns can be made to any weight or balance that you want, if you buy new. Likewise the stock can be ordered to your specs if you buy new. So performance wise there is very little difference.

    If you are looking at a used gun then you should be aware of the specs of the gun you are picking up.

    Well, i have had both and shoot the P gun, i am just the opposite of Sterlingworth, the K gun feels heavy and does not swing as easy as the P gun "for me" . Like old goat says, the one YOU shoot the best is the best, be it H&R, B,B, K, P, L, R, W, gun. Joe

    It's like the Indy 500, Chevy v. Honda. Either is designed for one purpose, winning.

    I've owned both and several of both. I'm going back to Ljutic. Ljutic's fit me better. Could not get Perazzi or Krieghoff's to fit, however, I am left handed. Both fine guns with nice swing dynamics but prefer Ljutic. Ljutic will fit me at the factory. I own a MX10RS at this time that will be for sale with a left hand stock. Just doesn't fit right. Had my Krieghoff's cast on but still didn't fit right. You will probably like either if you are right handed. I did like the Krieghoff trigger over Perazzi. Shoot both and then decide. Krieghoff did seem a bit barrel heavy but moved to the target just fine.
