Nickel Trigger – Three Sizes
The K-80 Nickel Trigger Blade. The Nickel Trigger is now available in three sizes; Standard, Short and Wide (the wide trigger is 12 mm wide).
This Trigger blade fits all new model K-80 guns. It is suitable for K-80 owners with a forward position blade fitted who need the trigger to sit further back. The Trigger blade fits all new model K-80 guns that have the trigger blade attached on a T-slot rail. Earlier guns had a dovetail. If you wish to fit a new trigger on an earlier gun then you will also need a trigger upgrade. This can be done in our Krieghoff Service facility. Normally we recommend that you send the receiver of your gun to have the trigger fitted. It is possible to fit the blade yourself but please note the instructions you can read by reading the installation Procedure.

The K80 trigger blade is adjustable for position along a slide. There are two set screws on the underside of the trigger blade. The screw socket takes a 1.27mm wrench, 0.050" or 1/20th inch imperial. Use a Krieghoff Trigger/Selector Wrench. The rearmost screw locks the blade onto the slide whilst the front screw locks the barrel selector positioned immediately in front of the trigger blade. There are two trigger blade types, standard position and forward position. The standard blade has both screws in front of the curved blade whilst the forward position trigger has one screw in front and one directly behind the blade. Function of the two screws is the same.
To move the trigger blade, slacken the rear screw but note that the front screw, if locked, will also lock the trigger blade. The front screw has to be far enough out to allow the blade to slide so if it will not move try backing that screw out some more. Occasionally, the blade will be stuck on the slide but is easily freed with a nylon drift. Make sure both screws are free before tapping the blade with anything. Once in position, tighten the rearmost screw to lock the blade on the slide.
To lock the selector, tighten the front screw until the selector cannot be switched left to right. To release the selector, simply slacken that screw off again.
