    I owned three KS-5s, two of them Specials, and one KX-5. They are mechanically the same gun and feel the same on your shoulder, given an equal stock fit.

    The KX-5 is a KS-5 Special with a wider, more curved trigger, upright rib pickets instead of slanted, a push-button forend release in place of a lever and some engraving differences. Their buttstocks are interchangeable.

    The average shooter will never wear either one out and breakdowns are rare.

    Ditto Ed; I've always opined the KS-5 Special is the best bang for the buck being essentially the same gun as the KX-5 just a bit older and less cost while having all the adjustability of the newer gun.....breakemall.....Bob Dodd
