Krieghoff/Shotguns of Ulm K80 12 gauge three barrel trap/skeet set. Serial number indicates date of manufacture in 1987. Serial also appears on all three barrels: 32 inch unsingle trap, 30 inch over/under and 28 inch skeet.
This K80 is in excellent used condition. Bores are bright and shiny like new, no dents, scratches, or corrosion. Beautiful walnut stock with two forends. Stock and forends are in like new condition, with no dings and feature sharp checkering. Receiver finish and barrel bluing are both excellent. Receiver parts have been upgraded, see details below.
This K80 was imported during a few years when the “Shotguns of Ulm” label was substituted in the U.S. for “Krieghoff“, for marketing and distribution reasons. SoU serial numbers were in the same sequence as Krieghoff labeled guns. The barrels have Krieghoff markings, and are compatible with any K80. With the mechanical upgrades, this shotgun is equal to any newer K80, other than cosmetic issues.

RECEIVER: Electroless nickel finish. Markings: K80 on each side, “K80 Shotguns of Ulm Ulm W. Germany” on bottom. Serial number is on the top receiver rail. Sear springs have been upgraded to the in-line type. Note the protrusion on the sides of the hammers – we believe these to be upgraded as well. Release lever is well to the right of center when a barrel is latched, see photos. A previous owner’s initials were added to the trigger guard in gold. The letters are above the surface, and would be easy to file off, or the trigger guard could be replaced.

STOCK: walnut, very attractive grain, pistol grip style, checkered grip, palm swell on both sides. Pachmayr White Line recoil pad.

Drop measurements using skeet barrel: comb 1 1/4, heel 1 3/8 – a slight slope down from back to front. Drop with unsingle barrel: comb 1 1/8, heel 1 1/4.
FORENDS (2): walnut, both a good match to stock appearance. Both about 10 1/2” long, both work with any barrel. One is 1 3/4” wide and has more of a sloped front, pictured with both trap barrels. This one has the serial number stamped into its mechanism. The other is 2 1/8” wide, and has no serial number. This forend is pictured with the skeet barrel.
This K80 is in perfect working condition. We test fired it with all three barrels. Patterns for each barrel are shown with photos. Pattern elevation depends on the shooter’s position as well as rib slope – another shooter might get a different result. A 30” circle was superimposed on each pattern according to reference marks on the paper. Trap barrel patterns are 30 yards, 20 for the skeet barrel.
