In the "Sporting" version, the K-20 shotgun with its free-floating barrels is optimized for skeet and hunting. In the "Pro Sporter" version, the lean over-and-under competition shotgun with a higher, adjustable line of sight and a stock with a likewise adjustable comb offers maximum flexibility for sporting use.
The K-20 offers the same superior performance as its big sister, incorporating all of the technical highlights in a slimmer, lighter form, with excellent balance and handling. The soldered barrel set and the
streamlined form gives the K-20 Parcours excellent balance. The shooter and the gun merge into one with this configuration.
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.
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-20 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.
