I think I found Rifledude's next rifle: Krieghoff Sempria.

Anyone shot it before?

Neat

Lifetime warranty and excellent customer service don't mean a thing when your gun fails during a zombie attack.

I don't like the thumb hole stock with tang controls.  Other than that, it looks pretty neat.

I want one!

And I bet there are a few accidental discharges with that tang operation BS.

Have not shot one, but almost bought one a while back.  Wasn't in a caliber I wanted.  Good press on it, though.

I updated the thread title accordingly.

Let me know if you buy one.  I'll come visit.

I’ve never shot one. Handled a sample at the Dallas Safari Club show a few years ago. Thought it was an interesting design and seemed well made, as you’d expect from Krieghoff. But, it didn’t give me the itch to buy one. I kinda like my rifles to remain the same length all through the firing cycle. That being said, I wouldn’t mind having one just for the novelty of it, but not enough to pay the $5k MSRP.

Oh, $5k, okay, never mind.

Interesting design and concept, but not at $5k.

Be confusing to swap back and forth between the Remington 870 and the Krieghoff.

Isn't Remington going bankrupt (and not a day to soon)?

Sure looks that way. Was at SHOT in 2015. Saw how Nosler was stealing the Dakota proprietary line of cartridges from Remington who owns Dakota.  Nosler's 33, 30 and 28 are virtual copies of the 330, 300 and 7mm Dakota cartridges.  I pointed that out to Remington's head of marketing and he just stared at me blankly. With management like that they are toast. I am a huge fan of the 330 Dakota. We developed the 338 ICBMs and Bulldozers mostly using that cartridge. It is perfect cartridge for any big game in the world. Has greater power than the 375H&H and excellent for shooting dangerous game up close and Plains game, out to as far as you feel comfortable shooting yet off the bench felt recoil is similar to a 16 ga shotgun

The quality of their guns has suffered while Savage and Ruger have tried to make their production rifles shoot almost as well as the custom makers. Remington's bankruptcy his is not a surprise.

They are still shooting THOUSANDS of rounds of ammo every day at their range close to my house.  Have not been down to talk to any of them recently, but will try to by next week.

The Semprio would be good for those European driven Hog hunts. That forward pump action sort of melds with the recoil.
