I have had many a Shilen, Hart, Kreiger, etc. match grade barrel put on new rifles and similarly on 1911 pistols. So I am not opposed to the idea of spending more money on a brand new gun to improve its shooting. No one expects a true match grade barrel and its subsequent accuracy on a $500 factory rifle or a store-bought 1911.

I read so often that aftermarket barrel work has been done on a $17,000 Krieghoff K-80 Trap Special combo. Curious as to what it is that another gunsmith is going to do for the barrels that Krieghoff can not or did not do for their $17,000 ?

Do the Perazzis, Blasers, etc. also require the additional barrel work ?

Thoughts please.

most often the barrel work is a modification of the choke dimension and profiles.
a personal preference thing. It will give the gun a personality and overall lower the value, simply because not as many people want it now. A K-gun will give you all you'll ever need on the line, just like the rest of them, it is the indian not the arrow.

Remember some can't leave well enough alone. Its the never ending pursuit of the ultimate gun. "A fool and his money soon part". That phrase was written about Trap Shooters.
