hi all , has anyone tried one of the stick on magnetic high ribs that are becoming available, i need a more head up position due to having a long neck, before i go to the expense of buying a dedicated high rib gun has anyone tried the stick on versions?

 

thanks

Not tried the add on high ribs, if you get one, you will have to add some "packing" to the comb as well.

 

Have you tried a specialised trap gun, might be worth it before you commit.

 

My son uses a raised rib Trap gun for sporting and is very happy with the sight picture.

Something i have wondered about them is the using of steel shot, what would happen, it scares me to think about it.

Why?

 

When would the add on rib come in to contact with steel shot?

Just how stick on are they as I tried a magnetic fiber optic bead when the front lip was broken and it kept sliding down until it came off more than once.

Would imagine a carbon fiber rib raiser stick on bonded by 3m would be a good thing.

I'd try taping a price of plastic or blackened wood to my rib first to see how it suited me before going all out and buying one.

Problem would be, every time you broke the gun it would come back up with a collection of empty cases stuck to the muzzle. Likewise if you chose steel shot, that in turn would be stuck inside the barrel,......................................wouldn't it    ?       :whistling:

I highly doubt that steel travelling down the barrel will be effected by the magnet.

It's going to be an out and out clay gun so unless lead is banned it won't have steel put through it, although it would possible be a new excuse in my arsenal ;) I would of hit it but the magnetic pull made me miss !!

I always without fail take the Michael out of anyone on a game shoot not using the correct traditional sxs or I do allow an o/u in 20g to go unnoticed , can you imagine the comments if I took a 32" high rib trap gun with colour banded extended chokes and an adjustable rib and comb, I just don't think I could live with the shame lol

Not high,just wide !

I think if the muzzle velocity exceeded 1200ft/sec. it should just about be OK  !

Put a shout out to try one,or a few, goto a demo day, ceasar guerini do a big selection of different guns with different heights.

 

I have had 2, a CG summit with the tall rib,and a K80 Prorib, liked them both at the time but they offered me no benefit so went back to normal.

I have a 20mm one if you want to buy it. Fits on great with no movement even when putting in a slip.

 

It is this one - http://www.highrib.c...x.php/high-ribs

Not seen the magnetic ones but a guy at a shoot last week had a DIY wooden one on his s/s just siliconed on and painted black.

Did the job.
