    No there is nothing wrong with them per se

    If they work- they work

    It is however possible that if they need to be worked on and you have one of the first 1000 or so (really only 500 but not the first 500) then its going to take longer and may cost more money for a number of reasons- to include welding and remachining

    Krieghoff can do anything however

    So its all a matter of value-- if you can get a good earlier one at a good value or it works and is in prime condition- do it--

    It will be worth less than a late model one

    Around 6000 or so their maching tolerances made a significant leap forward( they were always good before for the era of early guns - just that things improved) What does that mean? Better interchangeability

    I shoot a barrel routinely that is slightly engraved on my K80-- the barrel was made in 1939-- it is 71 years old

    regards from Iowa

    Somewhere, on this site, there is a thread showing the Rem and Krieghoff internals and other differneces. The differences were very obvious. As Gene said the K factory can do anything to any Model 32. Enjoy. Dave T.

    Didn't some of the earlier ones have a fixed front hanger?

    Later K-32

    Notice selector, safety, and trigger, which are noticeable without removing stock. The safety is an immediate indicator.

    I have a early Model 32, 53X. Mine is a mixture of K80 wood and trigger guard, Miller trigger, has a fixed barrel hanger. I am assuming that it has Remington parts in the action. So, yes some early models had fixed hangers. Thanks David

    Will Krieghoff put K-80 guts into a Remington 32 frame?

    ED they did for me but I had to work on them-- it took 3 years- and it cost a lot of money-- I hate to tell you how much. They actually had the gun in their shop for a year- now that included nitriding in Germany as well.

    Remember also- there are small and large pin Remingtons- they werent all the same as well as square tang remingtons

    Here is a picture of the gun
