    I'd like to buy a very early K-80 receiver, to get engraved or already engraved. Thanks

    Dear Doug. K-80 receivers are extremely hard, and not the best candidate for engraving.

    Bite the bullet and find a high grade that suits your taste.

    If you have an itch for a custom, the M-32 is a better deal. A good Krieghoff M-32 is a "best deal" for a tournament gun.

    Contrary to popular belief the K-80 can be annealed by a competent metalurgist to remove the hardening to be engraved. Only a competent one can do this and then the chance of work hardening the metal as well as removing the deep standard engraving makes this a daunting task. The K-32 is easily engraved or buy a $10,000 in the white K-80 receiver. Jeff

    K-80s can be annealed and deplated ( but the factory wont cover warranty)

    Any purchase of a receiver not hardened , used to involve a contract and returning the receiver back to the dealer/factory for hardening

    A K80 stock will fit a K32- you might have to fill in the about a 3/8 triangle with plastic or plastic wood and finish that small gap (done all the time)
