Any thoughts on the NEW Krieghoff KX6 Special Trap single vs. Silver Seitz, Perazzi, Kolar, Krieghoff Trap Special, or any other Trap Singles.
Thanks for all input.
Best,

You asked and here's something to consider IMHO ? For the new price these are selling for ,
I see their re-sell value at much less , I'm talking about guns only a year or so old and not
even broke-in , in like new condition ! FWIW

I have a KS5 special and it has all of what the KX6 has to offer but IMH opinion the
KX6 is such a pretty gun , with nice wood and all the features a Single Clay target
shooter would want . As far as comparing it to other higher end guns , it can and
does , stay right with the big dogs as a tool for those who shoot them well !

I’ve never heard anything bad about a KX6. The other guns you mentioned are a bit pricier.

I shot the KX-6 for several years and have nothing but good thing to say about the model. I did sell it only because I also have 3 different K-80 combo's that I shot as well as the 6. The KX-6 is very simple design and reliable. Krieghoff has somehow take much of the recoil out by what I believe is through stock design and recoil directed straight back into the mass of the gun. I shot over 30K rounds with my 6 without any problems or issues other dropping the gun in Owatonna, MN gun club parking lot and breaking the tang lever that we hand to wait over a month to get one from Germany.

My KX-6 still remains the only gun Ive ever owned that I shot a 100 straight from long yardage handicap with. Every competitive trap shooter will tell you that is the time to start thinking about trading the gun off. At least that seems to be the trend anyway.

I'm new to ATA trap and mostly shoot recreationally with fellows shooting everything from Mossberg 500s to Perazzi, DT11s and Krieghoffs KX6, K80s. I shoot a Krieghoff KX-5 that I bought used, but started out with a M12 converted to a trap gun. When I went to a big shoot in Elysburg PA last year the shotgun that was mentioned in hushed, revered tones was the Silver Seitz. As in "Oh, look, so and so is shooting a Silver Seitz". I inferred from that, that they are expensive and have a good reputation. IMO, take any quality shotgun built for high volume use, that fits you, hits to your preferred POA and shoot the heck out of it until it's like a part of your body. It doesn't matter much, unless - - - you want people to talk about you and your shotgun in hushed, revered tones.

About the only reason I'd prefer a Perazzi, Beretta, or Seitz over a Kreighoff is that those three brands are much handsomer (is that a word?) than the K-gun.

Handsomer is in the eyes of the beholder. :)

You must have mud in your eye too ?
There's not much offered in other target guns that , a K gun doesn't already have !
But , I agree with you , some like Blonds for their quick thinking ? I like Red-heads !

Except looks.
There's a noticeable difference between the styling of German products and Italian products (particularly if those products are guns).
Visually, they are like Rosie O'Donnell and Jennifer Aniston. :mrgreen:

Break, I do not own a KX6S, I do own a K80 TS. Having said that I shoot with Two shooters that do own KX6S. One bought His gun shortly after I bought My K80, and the other one bought His after shooting the other man’s gun. We have discussed these guns a lot. First, are You a person that likes shooting a rollover comb. Not all of Us do, and the KX6S comes standard with one. Also, these guns come with a fairly high rib, for a topsingle. Might be a good idea to see if You can try before You buy. A big plus for this model, is that it is offered in a left-handed model/stock. Both of these shooters are left-handed. It can take a little while to find them, as They are not as prevalent as right-handed models. This model does come with a pretty good grade of wood, compared to previous models. Lastly, these guns are a pretty good value, as they are ruggedly simple, and I believe They will go a very longtime, without major maintenance, If doubles are not Your thing, and You don’t have the budget for a Silver Seitz, this gun is a no-nonsense trapgun that will hold up to some serious shooting on the summer circuit. Good luck in Your decision.
