Our Assessment: The Remington 32 was discontinued shortly after WWII and their patents on the design were not renewed. Henrich Krieghoff, having recently escaped Soviet-controlled East Germany had settled in Ulm and started making sporting arms. He was able to receive approval from Remington to utilize their design and the Krieghoff 32 was born! It would go on to be considered one of the finest sporting shotguns available, and with good reason. This one has two barrels and comes with a hard case. This should make a nice all-around sporting gun for the lucky winner. Please see our photos and good luck!
