Krieghoff introduces the new limited-edition K-80/S – a vintage look for the familiar K-80 receiver. Graceful sideplates provide the look of classic sidelock guns with the proven reliability and performance of the flagship K-80 shotgun.
Launched at the 2018 NSCA Sporting Clays Nationals, the first model K-80/S, “Summers End” was created by Master Engraver Hendrik Frühauf, well-known for his exquisitely detailed work seen on both Krieghoff Guns of the Year and various custom projects. The breathtaking beauty of “Summers End” reveals more and more with each glance and takes us to summer’s end with wild flowers and wheat in their full enameled and gold beauty. A wingshooter’s dream of pheasants, quail and woodcock adorn the receiver, top latch and trigger guard. Reverse gold gives the golden feeling of summer’s last days and the anticipation of the upcoming hunting season.
“Summers End”, the first K-80/S is configured as a 32” Parcours and included a hand rubbed Tru-Oil Exhibition Grade Turkish Walnut Stock.
K-80/S models can be configured with a standard K-80 or K-80 Parcours configuration.
Left: A Pheasant Rooster and hen flush at day break over an open field. Surrounded by beautiful scrolling and ribbons this is brought together by the red, white and blue of the summer’s flowers and golden wheat.
Right: Two quail flying with a golden overcast sky as backdrop. A rooster head and quail head are tastefully worked into the scroll and ribbon work. Near the hinge pin, we have enamel summer flowers alongside golden wheat.
Top: A close up of a rooster standing proudly on the top latch near golden wheat and just the right amount of blue enamel bring the sides beautifully together. Each side of the top latch is met with deeper relief engraving of various scrolling.
Bottom: This is where the whole gun truly comes together. We have deep relief on the curves of the receiver going from the flat sides to the flat underside creating dramatic impact to the scrolling and ribbon work. The colorful enamel flowers create beautiful contrast and balance to overall composition, especially when it is executed to perfection. The trigger guard has a finely detailed woodcock quickly flying through the trees.
