Thread: New Krieghoff single shot, break action ejector rifles.

  1. #1

    New Krieghoff single shot, break action ejector rifles.

    This is something that's been awaited for some time in Europe and it looks like Krieghoff have got there before Blaser....unless one of you guys knows different?
    The question is: having had my K95 for over ten years now and not having felt disadvantaged by having to manually extract fired cartridges, would I swap for an ejector version?
    Probably not.
    But if one had been available when I bought my rifle, I'd definitely have had the ejector system.
    What do you folk think? ATB

    I *think* that the Krieghoff Essencia sidelock ejector kiplauf has been available for a while, but at what cost!

    Interesting to see that it's now available as a custom built extra on the Hubertus though - any idea of what it adds to the circa £5k 'base' model?

    Unless the lottery comes up in the near future, I think I'll stick with my Heym for the time being.

    I wouldn't be adverse to a Blaser , Krieghoff or Merkel single shot in 6.5x57R or 6.5x65R .

    If you have a rimmed cartridge, break the barrel, tip it sideways and the empty just falls out at your feet - no need for an ejector system to kick the cartridge clear. Was at Kelso today and had a good look at the Blaser single shot in 308. Nice rifle, but a bit fidly to extract a cartridge without a proper rim.

    Never had a problem extracting cartridges manually from my K95....although I guess if you bite your nails it's probably trickier.

    +1 but then again I'm not a nervous person!

    No problem with my Heym 44B kiplauf in 7x57 Mauser (rimless) either. The extractor raises the cartridge case enough to get a grip on it with two fingers, even with gloves on.

    Had a look at the video - looks a nice feature, but more to go wrong, and the noise of the ejector going off could easily alert quarry to where you are. I have found over the years, deer know a shot has gone off, but often cant pin point it, but a metallic rattle of a bolt etc allows them to pinpoint you. If you look at the video here Krieghoff: Lexicon - you can see the satndard quick reload.

    I suppose a lot comes down to cost, but I am not sure on a simgle shot it would be worth huge amount of additional money on a feature that's possibly not needed.

    extracting a flangeless brass , hold your next round reversed in your hand then hook the brass out with the groove turn your wrist and slip the round into the chamber,no fiddling and looks smart .
