Krieghoff Open Day 2nd July 2016
Krieghoff Open Day – 2nd July 2016
Here at Sporting Targets we are holding a Krieghoff Open day on 2nd July 2016.
For those looking to try a Krieghoff, Hull Cartidge Company have very generously sponsored cartridges to be used in the demo guns.
In addition Ed Solomons will be on hand to help with gun fit, and for those that decide to purchase on the day, there will be one off deals which includes a coaching session from Ed.
Whether you are looking to buy a K-80 for trap, skeet, or sporting clays, it will be built around the same receiver, the difference between the models being in barrel length, rib configuration, and stock dimensions.
The K-80 receiver is the heart of the K-80 system. A workhorse capable of firing many hundreds of thousands of rounds in its lifetimes it begins as a piece of high quality forged steel being shaped in sophisticated computer controlled CNC machines. It is finished in the best tradition of German craftsmanship, all internal parts filed and hand fit with the consummate touch of one of Krieghoff’s highly skilled gunmakers
The K-80’s unique sliding top latch provides strong lock-up, easy barrel interchangeability, and great durability. Because the top latch secures the barrels to the receiver at the optimal leverage point, it eliminates the need for both underbites and side-lugs. This in turn makes for easier barrel fitting and makes it possible for a single K-80 receiver to be fitted with a great variety of barrels – from a .410 skeet over-and-under to a 34″ unsingle. And because the top latch slides forward to adjust for barrel wear, it helps maintain the gun’s tight fit and solid feel for hundreds of thousands of rounds.
The K-80 is driven internally by coiled main and sear springs that ensure both very fast lock-time and a predictable consistency of feel and performance. All essential internal parts are machined from high quality tool steel to withstand wear and stress during even the heaviest use.
The K-80 has a single selective mechanical trigger with a crisp, positive feel. The trigger shoe is wide and smooth, has a deeply curved profile for maximum control and comfort, and can be adjusted back-and-forth for best grip length. Release trigger systems, which are particularly popular in competitive trap shooting are available from Krieghoff on special order, both in Single Release or Double Release configurations. The model K-80/RT featuring a removable trigger allows for the use of Release Triggers as well.
The barrel selector is located just in front of the trigger and can be made fully functional or locked in place with a turn of a small hex wrench to prevent its being switched unintentionally.Tagged
