1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I am looking for a recoil reducer that goes into the top area of a K-80 unsingle.

    I have one for sale. I had it taken out of my unsingle barrel because if added too much weight for me. If you want to see pics just let me know and I can send you pics of it.

    Thanks

    Any recoil reducer designed to go into a barrel chamber will fit

    Regards from Iowa

    Dumb question- how do you modify the the top chamber of a unsingle barrel(mine is plugged from the factory) to accomodate a chamber recoil reducer?

    Is this something a guy could do himself or is a gunsmith needed?I would like to use a chamber recoil reducer if I could! Thanks

    There is no modification necessary other than getting what is in the barrel of a Krieghoff out- held in by a pin usually

    The chamber mercury recoil reduces then slip right in

    It's been a while, but don't you remove the K80 top barrel extractor to access a small screw that holds the plug in the top barrel?

    I seem to recall there's a post in front of the plug to prevent chambering a shell. I assume it can be Dremeled out.

    I just looked closely on the 2 unsingle barrels and the top single I have.I looked w/ a magniflier and can not see a pin holding the plug. I will check under the top extractor. Thanks

    Thanks,found it under the extractor-very small hex head screw.I did not try and remove the blocking pin- looks like I would need to drill out the head of the pin where it is pressed in and hope the entire will come out.

    I put in about 6-8oz of lead to see how it feels before I put in a $65 Chamber Mercury reducer and drill out the blocking pin.
