Thread: Krico Rifle Information Anyone?

  1. #1

    Krico Rifle Information Anyone?

    I have purchased a Krico rifle, .270 calibre, full stock to end of barrel, and on the barrel there is stamped what looks like to be a Crown followed by the letters J C, followed by a deer antler, followed by another Crown. The serial # on my gun is 187814, also stamped in barrel is the word Krico encapsulated in an open ended oval, and beside that Krico GMBH made in Stuttgart W.Germany. The front sight is gold plated. I am trying to find out when this gun was made, what the stampings mean etc. and any other history. Would much appreciate any info that anyone might know about this, or pointers to where I might find information about this. Thank You

    You could try contacting the makers for info: Krico

    Yours may be a model 700, or if older an FS: http://books.google.dk/books?id=MWFX...%20600&f=false

    Useful info on how to strip it down: http://books.google.dk/books?id=ceqO...%20600&f=false


    I have an older Krico FS, I'll have to go and check if mine has the same stamps as yours.

    Cheers

    Just checked and the crown letters and antler are the proof marks from the proof house in Ulm. Mine has the same, but with different letters(date code).

    Are you sure the letters in your date code are JC? Could it be IC instead? Mine is HG for 1976.

    Krico rifle info - Tahnk You

    Hi T_T,
    Thanks for your suggestions of where to find info on my Krico rifle. Here is their reply; your rifle no. 187814 is a model 700 Luxus Stutzen shipped on the 16thAugust 1982.
    The stamps JC means the year of proof 82
    The deer antler means the proofhouse of Ulm
    There should be an German eagle beside the deer antler means German proof.

    I don't have the German Eagle on my gun, someone said that it would have been Austrian proof. I am going to e-mail Krico back and ask them that.

    Seems you have a rifle that is 6 years older than mine.Nice! I would like to see a picture of yours.
    I would send you one of mine but trying to figure out how to paste the picture from my iPad into this e-mail. When I figure it out I'll send you one.
    Regards

    You have a very good rifle. I have owned a left handed Krico model 700 deluxe in 9.3x64 Brenneke for almost 20 years. Even though its a big kicker it puts 3 bullets into one ragged hole if I do my best. I believe they are very well made and very underrated rifles. A E Hartink has a book "The complete encyclopedia of hunting rifles and shotguns" which has a lot of information on these rifles. If you ever need spare parts for your gun get in touch with me. I know an ex importer of these fine guns in Australia who still has a lot of parts, extractors, magazines etc. Enjoy

    The deer antler is the proof mark of the Ulm Proof House. Are you sure the Crown isn't an eagle? (Good photos would be helpful. You can pour Tippex into the marks and wipe it off, leaving the marks loking white.) The reference to W. Germany suggests its pre-1990

    Hi, thank you for your info on these guns, I am interested in learning more about this make of rifle. I would like to get the contact info for the ex importer you know, as I am interested in purchasing another clip for my rifle. I will check out that book. Thanks again

    Hi JMS, thanks for your info. I was taking a closer look at the crowns and they could be eagles. I found out that the rifle was made in 1982, so you were right on with your estimate of date. I will try to get a picture of the crowns on the post. Thanks again
