Yes and yes.

The model 32 wood will be inlet for a round backed trigger guard, whereas the trigger guard on the k80 is kinda an arrow shape, so the k80 trigger guard will need to be inlet to fit. Should be pretty straightforward.

The barrels will most likely be more work, and there can be some big issues if you have an early Model 32 (there were @ least 2 different hinge sizes on the Model 32). Fitting the barrels could be anywhere from extremely easy to insanely difficult, just depends on the individual action and barrels.

Thank you Ian, sounds like a project to stay away from.

Best Regards

Not really. Fact is, you can't just toss one set of barrels onto another gun. The problem is not the K-32/K80 deal; it is fitting barrels from one gun to another......

The exchange of wood from a 32 to an 80 is a very minor deal.

But there are additional issues to be aware of when putting k80 barrels on a m32 or vice versa (such as the possibility of different size hinge pins),

There is no difference in trunion sizes between a Krieghoff Model 32 and a Krieghoff Model K80. Perhaps there is between a Remington Model 32 and a Krieghoff Model 32. That, I do not know.....

From what I've read, there are 2 sizes within the Model 32 Krieghoff.

I believe what you might be referring to is the "repair" trunions, which are larger than the standard 32/80 trunions. The proper way to rebuild barrels which are off face is to bore the screw slots and solder in a shim to bring each pocket back to standard. However, as an economy form of service to bring a barrel back on face, KI offers the larger trunions in conjunction with enlarged screw slots on the monoblocs. It is cheaper, but the barrels will no longer be interchangable with other receivers.

No, I'm talking about 2 different "standard' sizes being used. I've seen this referenced on more than one occasion. What I read was that the earliest Krieghoff 32 receivers used a smaller diameter trunnion.

Well, you have put me on to something with that news. "Live and learn." That's my motto. Thanks. I'll check it out...... Mike
