Kleinguenther, Inc began importing rifles and rifle actions in 1972 from Voere in Germany were they would often improve the rifle including adding a stock with their special beading allowing them to guarantee 1/2 MOA with all of their guns. The original Kleinguenther rifle was called the Shikar and was known as the poor man’s Weatherby. In 1972 the Shikar model was improved and built to spec for Kleinguenther and that model became known as the K-14. The K-14 has a magazine hidden under the floor plate/trigger guard and the safety is located on the back of the bolt. The K-14 was replaced in 1975 by the K-15 Insta-fire, has the safety located on the right side of the action and has a floor plate with the magazine located under it. The K-15 Insta-fire was later improved after Voere sold off their assets in bankruptcy to Mauser who redesigned the floor plate making the magazine accessible without opening the floor plate; this model was named the K-15 Improved and was also known as the Titan II.
Most stocks are the original versions sent to Kleinguenther from Voere and vary from high polish to hand rubbed oil finish. Most of the highly polished stocks are on the K-14 and early K-15 models. Later versions of the K-15 models mostly have a matte finish or hand rubbed oil finish. Barreled actions were imported and given the Kleinguenther treatment and were available with fiberglass and custom stocks from Reinhart Fajen in various configurations including thumbhole stocks. Normally you can tell if you have a Reinhart Fajen stock by looking at the recoil pins in the stock. If the recoil pins screwed into the stock are flat and not rounded over, you probably have a Reinhart Fajen stock. Just because it might have a Reinhart Fajen stock does not necessarily mean it is worth more money, it all depends on the style and finish. As with all Kleinguenther rifles, condition is EVERYTHING!
Shikar, K-14, K-15 Insta-Fire, K-15 Improved and Titan II models were available in the following calibers: 243, 25-06, 257 Weatherby Mag., 270 Winchester, 270 Weatherby Mag., 7x 57, 7mm Mag., 308, 30-06, 300 Winchester Mag., 300 Weatherby Mag., 338 Winchester Mag., 375 H&H, 308 Norma Mag., 340 Weathereby Mag., 411 KDF, 416 Remington Mag. & 458 Winchester Mag. There were a few left handed models produced but not in all calibers. There are other various calibers that were made to order but most odd calibers were probably altered once they left Kleinguenther. If you are missing a magazine for a K-14, or K-15 Instafire, they are VERY difficult to find. When we have them, they are very expensive because they are expensive for us to obtain. Do not lose your magazine since they are next to impossible to find!
Not all calibers were available with every model. There was also the K-12, K-13 & K-22, which are very nice .22 rifles. Besides rifles, there were also shotguns made by Zoli and various other customized rifles produced by Kleinguenther.
