Dec 16, · Even if you find the list of serial numbers, how can you be sure it is accurate. There have been many changes and improvements to the K and K over time. While records of serial numbers and date of production are available, I not sure if anyone accurately found a . Jun 16, · Here is a list of serial number range by year of manufacture. This is just an approximation, and keep in mind, some engraving takes quite some time to complete, so the date that the finished product ships could be years after the receiver was built, because the engraving took time to naevbac.fileelectro.pw,Will. Feb 12, · The Internet's Best Resource for Shotgun Information. The main concern of the first or less K 32's was that they used the remington 32 trigger and about the only way to improve them was to install miller triggers which were done to many remington 32's along with early k32's. Krieghoff will remain the best gun you can shoot, whatever your game. naevbac.fileelectro.pwoff of Ulm, Germany, which was founded as Sempert & Krieghoff in , had been producing European hunting guns for more than sixty years when the company explored the opportunity in the late fifties and early sixties to add competition shotguns to its line.

There isn't a day that goes by that fellow shooters don't call and ask the question: "What is the difference between the K and the K" In this column, I will try to explain, without getting to technical, the main differences. First, we must understand the relationship between the two models.
The Krieghoff K was a redesigned, improved version of the Remington M Hal established a network of dealers throughout the United States who sold the shotgun for over 20 years. In the early s Krieghoff redesigned the K and the K was the result.
One of the first design changes and improvements made by Krieghoff was the hardness of the receiver. The K was machined from a solid piece of quality German steel, but never hardened.
Ks are hardened by a "case hardening" process that leaves a thin layer of hardened material around the entire receiver. The next design change was the outward appearance of the receiver and iron. The Ks, with a few exceptions, had a blued finish.
The Ks standard finish is an electrolysis nickel finish. Other changes were also made to the appearance of the K engraving patterns on the receiver, trigger guard reshaped contoured and extended rearward to a radius point , and an enlarged top lever. Perhaps the biggest design change was the trigger.
K triggers were made with a very large sweep rearward and the trigger "shoe" was thin.
The K trigger shoe was designed with a curved radius, allowing the shooter;s trigger finger to fit comfortably on the trigger. Both the K and K have the ability to select which barrel, top or bottom, the shooter wishes to fire first. The barrel selector on the K can be locked, the K cannot.
Additional internal design changes were made to the K from the original K The K hammers have gone through various changes. The very first.
Ks had "soft" hammers, and in an effort to perfect the hammers, Krieghoff experimented with approximately four different hammer designs. They have settled on the current hammers which will accept both pull hammer as well as double release triggers in every gun manufactured, Sear springs in the K and older Ks were of a "clothes pin" wire spring that would collapse when the trigger was pulled.
Many shooters were reporting broken sears springs while "on the line". In order to alleviate the broken sear spring problems, Krieghoff redesigned the sear and sear spring system around Serial Number Coil springs are now utilized instead of the sear spring system, and have been much more reliable.
Ks as well as older Ks, serial numbers prior to , can be retrofit with the new sear spring system. K were manufactured with the ejectors ejects the spent shell held in place on the barrel by a visible screw in the center of the ejector.
The design of the K ejector eliminated the small screw The K ejector is held in place on the barrel by a ball bearing and spring underneath the ejector. The most distinguishing differences between the K and K stocks are as follows: K stocks were available in varying shades of red, unlike the K stocks.
K stocks were available in two "styles"- trap and skeet - and did not have palm swells.
For the comfort of the shooter, both left and right side palm swells were added, and "thickness" was added to the comb. K barrels are available with two rib configurations: a low rib skeet and a high rib Vandalia trap ; both 8mm in width.
K barrels are available with three rib configurations 8mm, tapered flat, tapered step and four lengths 28", 30", 32", 34". Factory choke tubes are available in all barrels now, whereas choke tubes were not available in the K barrels directly from the factory, but were installed later by Briley.
In summary, the K is a newer, redesigned version of the K, that over the years has evolved to accommodate the needs and demands of shooters for today's competitive clay target sports.
