    I was reviewing a listing for a Krieghoff model 32 and it said that it included a 30 inch vandalia rib barrel. can someone describe that for me or better post a picture ?

    thanks,

    Model 32s came with two rib profiles, "flat" and "Vandalia." The flat rib looks like today's standard K-80 rib except it was narrower while the Vandalia version was higher, very much like the rib on today's Beretta O/U and top single barrels.

    Vandalia ribbed barrels are worth more than flat ribbed ones as there weren't as many made and a lot of people like them better.
