RT is removable trigger you remove the trigger and then you can select what barrel is first and put the trigger back in. The rumor I have heard is Krieghoff came out with the RT to compete with Perazzi.

I'm sure they are but I just need more versatility for Sporting Clays and Five Stand. If not for that, I'd have sent an offer already. It has the barrels I want with the rib I want, the stock I want and the forearm I've been looking for. Even the LOP is perfect for me.

It's as if the Shotgun Gods are teasing and playing with me!

ncick559, I can change mine in under a minute, and to those who have not had the pleasure to own or shoot one, the triggers are much crisper and faster than the regular triggers, good luck on the sale! incinerate em!

I read up on them and asked a friend who had them on his K80. He loved them for skeet, trap and doubles trap. Unfortunately, they didn't work out so well for him in Five Stand and other Sporting Clays events. He ended up selling the receiver and going to one with a standard barrel selector. He did say that the K80 RT had noticeably better triggers in his opinion .

What are "them and they"?

The only shared components between a K-80 and a K-80/RT are the the barrels/chokes, top latch, and forearm wood/iron. To keep it simple, the K-80/RT is a "completely different gun."

EDIT: And it's a great gun. End of story. But that story is a long one and a sad one, that involves release triggers. And it's that story that derailed to K-80/RT and doomed its fate.

That said, if you are lucky enough to own one, you will be among the fortunate few.

"Them" and "They" are the triggers, that's what the discussion is about. He thought they (the RT triggers) were crisper, cleaner and lighter than on his other K80.
