I was on phone with Kolar today inquiring about a used O/U trap gun I'm kicking around.I was cautioned that the .740 32" o/u bbl were very heavy hence the change to the .750 bore.I would primarily use the gun for doubles and some singles.I'm just wondering if others have found this to be true?Can there be that much difference from the .750 bbls?BTW the people at Kolar are super helpful and very willing to answer my questions.

That was the main reason I now shoot a Krieghoff is my Kolar was to heavy. I don't know if it was the barrel but the whole gun was to heavy for my liking.

Do you guys have an overall weight of these Kolars?. Krieghoff Trap guns are advertised as 8 3/4lbs. Dave T.

The Kolar o/u with 32 inch 0.740 bore does seem heavier than my 3200 with 30 inch barrels. But, I weighed just the barrels: Kolar 32" bbl. 0.740 bore (with choke tubes): = 4 lbs 0 oz; the Remington 3200, 30" barrels = 4 lb 5 oz. Hard to believe.

I have Kolar combo TC model, not the newer TA model. .740 bores with choke tubes.

With the O/U the gun weighs 10 pounds. I have a custom stock and it's a bit larger than standard, so it might weight a bit more than a gun with a standard stock.

After hearing tales of how kolars were too heavy, I was amazed at how lively a .740 felt compared to my cherished 30" MX-8 or my K-32. There is a lot a BS out there. Try one for yourself, you might be surprised. Regards, GAP.

FYI, I have not heard of any Kolar barrels blowing up. I can't say that about the other. Remember that when you place one of your reloads in your K gun. Oh, Thats right Krieghoff will void the warrenty if you use reloads in their guns. I wonder why. Break-em all. Jeff
