I have a Krieghoff Model 32 (serial #59XX) that has a K80 barrel mated to the received and has subgauge tubes.

I recently purchased a K80 with a 2011 manufacturing date. I would like to use the barrels from the Model 32 to shoot some subgauge skeet. The barrels will go on the K80 and the forearm "snaps" on fine. Am I okay to use these barrels without having them fit at Ottsville. Being cheap, I hate to spend several hundred in shipping costs and labor if I don't need to. On the other hand, I don't want to screw up the receiver of my K80 Gold Super Scroll.

Thanks in advance.

Shouldn't be a problem. A K-80 bbl on a K-80 receiver. If they fit, they will work, unless there's too much headspace. Put them on and hold it up to a light, unless you have a Go-NoGo gauge.

put the barrel on the receiver without the forearm. Try to push and pull the barrel and the receiver together and apart. That will show head space rather quickly.

Best bet is to have it checked out by an authorized Krieghoff repair shop...the head space needs to be correct... Is it worth blowing it up by your face? Dont think so..

The head space does not really have to be all that tight. Especially with compression formed shells, there is really not an issue.

If the barrels go on the receiver fine with no bind;
If the forend goes on fine with no bind;
If the ejectors work fine...
If there is no obvious headspace issue as was addressed above (slowdp)....
You're probably okay - and very, very lucky.
