The K-20 is a sporting, skeet and field shotgun built on an elegantly compact twenty gauge frame. It is endowed with the crisp triggers and overall feel of the K-80 and finished with the handcrafted precision that you expect from a Krieghoff. It is a gun that anyone who appreciates the pleasures of the small gauges will have to own, and it is available with the complete range of engraving patterns shown for the K-80.
Each new K-20 comes with 10 years warranty and backed by our excellent Krieghoff Service, offering advice, service and repairs for the complete Krieghoff range. The gun is shipped in a lightweight transport case. As an option an aluminium case covered with a hard wearing black cordura case cover is available.
The perfectly balanced K-20 Parcours leads to a smooth swing, instinctive aim and precise shooting. First and foremost the key to success is the intuitive mount of the gun. The rest follows naturally. Your instinct aims. The K-20 Parcours hits.
One of the most important features of a shotgun. Shotguns are designed for shooting moving targets. Clay or Game Shooting is a fast sport leaving little time to get on target. It requires a well balanced and easy pointing shotgun. Shooter and gun become one. The K-20 Parcours delivers.
Krieghoff supplies the new K-20 Parcours in Gauge 20/76 (3”) or 28/76 (3”) with Fixed Chokes (M (½) and IM (¾). Barrel length ist 76 cm for Gauge 20/76 and 28/76. The Barrel length of 81 cm (32”) is available for Gauge 20/76 (3”). Average gun weight is approximately 3.180g (approx. 7 pounds).
Light and slim, the K-20 Parcours is an easy transition from a 12 gauge. The gun has all of the proven K-80 features in a scaled down, small gauge version. The streamlined, low profile receiver complete with light barrels and trim stocking provides excellent balance and handling characteristics.
The K-20 has been conceived and designed with the small gauge and causual sporting shooter, the three gauge skeet shooter, and those who shoot game, in mind. It is beautifully balanced and quick handling, but it has enough weight to absorb recoil and swing smoothly, even at the end of a long day on the range or in the field.
The K-20 incorporates all of the technical refinements made in the K-80 over the years and shares all of its technical features adapted to the smaller receiver. Its most exciting feature, however, is not a new one at all but harks back to the Model 32 and early K-80s. the K-20 can be fit with 28 gauge and .410 barrels to make a two or three barrel set for competition, bird shooting, or pure small bore enjoyment.
Sliding Top Latch
The K-20's unique sliding top latch provides strong lock-up, easy barrel interchangeability, and great durability. Because the top latch secures the barrels to the receiver at the optimal leverage point, it eliminates the need for both underbites and side-lugs. This in turn makes for easier barrel fitting and makes it possible for a single K-80 receiver to be fitted with a great variety of barrels - from a .410 skeet over-and-under to a 34" unsingle. And because the top latch slides forward to adjust for barrel wear, it helps maintain the gun's tight fit and solid feel for hundreds of thousands of rounds.
The K-20 is driven internally by coiled main and sear springs that ensure both very fast lock-time and a predictable consistency of feel and performance. All essential internal parts are machined from high quality tool steel to withstand wear and stress during even the heaviest use.
The K-80 has a single selective mechanical trigger with a crisp, positive feel. The trigger shoe is wide and smooth, has a deeply curved profile for maximum control and comfort, and can be adjusted back-and-forth for best grip length. Release trigger systems, which are particularly popular in competitive trap shooting are available from Krieghoff on special order, both in Single Release or Double Release configurations. The model K-80/RT featuring a removable trigger allows for the use of Release Triggers as well.
The barrel selector is located just in front of the trigger and can be made fully functional or locked in place with a turn of a small hex wrench to prevent its being switched unintentionally.
The K-80 is equipped with a large non-automatic sliding safety, which is located in the conventional manner on the top tang just behind the opening lever. The safety has a large button which must be depressed before the safety can be moved. During competition, when the gun is being used under strictly controlled conditions, the K-80's safety can be locked in the 'off' position to assure that no targets will be lost because the safety is inadvertently engaged. The K-80's safety must always be made operative, of course, when the gun is used in the field.
