K-80/S. Modern design in a side-plate classic

A timeless classic, the K-80 has a proven design requiring few technical modifications in its four decade history stemming from the original K-32. Recently designers envisioned the idea of adding sideplates to provide a “new” classic look of the sideplate and sidelock guns of the past with graceful lines and identical in all other aspects. The very limited edition gives room for elaborate works of art providing engravers an expanded canvas to the K-80 receiver. Master Engraver Hendrik Frühauf was commissioned to engrave the very first K-80S for its debut. Known for his exquisitely detailed work seen both on Krieghoff Guns of the Year and various custom projects, Frühauf designed an engraving that reveals more with each new glance. The first Krieghoff K-80/S 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. “We really wanted to capture the elegant and classic look of a fine sidelock shotgun and combine it with the more modern look of the K-80. The combined efforts of our gunmakers and engineers resulted in the K-80/S with a whole new look and feel. Inspired by the wonderful creations we have seen from our engravers over the years, we could only imagine what they would do with even more “canvas” of added graceful sideplates. Master engraver Hendrik Frühauf was commissioned to give the gun its final touch giving him free reign of creativity. He surprised us with a truly unique master piece worthy of the first K-80/S. “ said Dieter Krieghoff. Each K-80/S will be unique with custom engraving to the customer's specifications and desires.

However, it should be noted that due to the different top rib heights adding a different barrel rib type (for example Pro Sporter Adjustable Rib to an originally configured Sporter the stock must be adjusted accordingly, or may need to be replaced with the appropriate corresponding stock.)

Receiver finish options
  • Nickel plated receiver finish.  Nickel is our most durable finish option for a receiver.  The nickel resists corrosion and provides a great finish for hard use.  Nickel is not available in conjunction with Gold Plating.
  • Blued receiver finish.  The Krieghoff Blued finish is a deep black color and provides a traditional look to a modern gun.
  • Nitrated receiver finish.  A nitrated finish is common on heavily engraved guns, especially with gold inlays and custom engravings. The nitrated finish provides a coin-grey finish and is easy to maintain.
  • Color case hardened finish.  Color case hardening is one of the original gun finishes available for fine shotguns.  With variations of blues, grays and straw colors the process makes a unique finish each time. Less durable than Nickel or Nitrated finishes we finalize the finish with a clear lacquer to provide an additional layer of protection.

  • Internal lock parts gold plated, triggers not included and must be specified
