    Need some help establishing a fair value for this K80, seems to be a standard grade but what concerns me is the shorter barrels. I currently have an older KS5 which has been awesome for me but thinking about upgrading a little. So what is a fair price or a killer buy now price?

    Here is what the auction states:
    This is for a N.I.B. Krieghoff custom 2 barrel trap set which includes 8 titanium chokes, a double barrel set of barrels and a unsignle barrel. Barrels are 30" (O/U) and 32" (US). This is a beautiful work of art. Comes as a full package with factory carrying case and accessories.


    Thanks in advance Mike

    Mike, JMHO, If the gun is as clean as the photo's appear, and those are the bbl length's you want, with that gorgeous stock and fore end, $8000.00 would be a steal, and 10K-11K would be fair. Randy

    There are some people who would kill for 30" K80 over/under barrels.

    Depending on age of receiver..........Part out prices

    $3,500.00 for receiver and iron

    $750.00 for stock and forearm wood

    $1,500.00 for "short" unsingle barrel

    $2,000.00 for Over/Under barrels

    $200.00 for Americase (if Americase)

    $640.00 for 8 chokes @ $80.00 each

    Total: $8,590.00

    I would say $8k would be about right.

    Receiver is newer model, rough guess based on engraving is mid to late 2000s. No earlier than 2001, and could be much later.

    Barrel lengths REALLY hurt the value. 2" longer on each barrel would yield a gun worth about $2k more.

    BTW, I'm kinda getting the gist that you found what you think is a smoking deal on this combo.

    Be careful, if the deal sounds to good to be true, it is.

    There are a LOT of high end gun scams going on right now, if you don't believe me, go on Armslist and look for Krieghoff, Perazzi, Kolar, Blaser, ect. Easy to find a half a dozen of these guns listed for 1/2 to 1/3 or less of their real value.

    Just a heads up to be careful.

    The guy selling the gun is about 1 1/2 hours from me so inspecting the gun in person will not be a problem. So a few emails back and fourth with this gentleman the price went from $12K to $9,500 picked up. The gun looks great in all of the pictures he emailed me but I am used to a 34' KS5 and if the 32' K80 doesn't work well for me I would probably sell it but am nervous of the resale value if I can't buy it at a good price.


    Thanks, Mike

    Don't buy it just because you think you got it at a good price.

    Get the gun you want and you will forget the price you paid.

    The joys of shooting the right gun out ways the price of a deal.

    $9500 is too much. You WILL loose money on it, or sit on it for a LONG time if you try and sell it.

    $7500 tops, unless you MUST OWN this gun. If that's the case, whatever the check book will bear. Best be certain of stock dimensions to be sure gun fits or be willing to part with more money for stock modifications. Lyle

    $9500 is too much for the gun with the equipped Bbls, $7500 is close.

    Look at the serial # or get the serial # and post for firmer price.

    $8k would be a fair price.
