When it comes to ergonomics, a shotgun’s stock is a key component.
It is not without reason that every shooter is familiar with Ludwig Krieghoff’s observation that ‘you shoot with the barrels, you hit with the stock’. He also developed Krieghoff’s patented stock fitting process, which to this day forms the basis of the K-80’s customized stocks. But even the K-80’s standard stock designs are optimized for the respective disciplines. Those who want the flexibility of using their K-80 for various disciplines can easily change the stock and forearm. The original forearm can also be used with all interchangeable barrels. Trap and sporting clay shooters are becoming more and more enamored with adjustable comb stocks. Their vertical and horizontal adjustability enables them to be perfectly adapted to suit personal needs. The precise checkering and the ergonomic hand-shaped pistol grip are part and parcel of the functional details of stock creation. Even the recoil pad is designed to match the requirements of the respective discipline. The trap recoil pad is specially designed for ‘head up’ shooting. The sporting recoil pad is designed for fast gun mounting. In addition to working like a charm, the stock, which is made from natural wood, contributes significantly to the aesthetic charm of the K-80. Six different grades of wood are available for the stock. The particularly resilient epoxy surface permanently and attractively brings out the warm colors and the fine grain of the walnut.
