Re: High Vented Rib

With a high vent the clay will sit on the top of the barrel when you shoot. With the normal rib your barrel will have to "cover" the clay when you shoot. With the high rib you can watch the bird the entire way. With a low rib you have to pull the trigger when clay is out of site.

That is what I have been told.

Re: High Vented Rib

The rib helps eliminate "Mirage",(heat waves) that ocurrs when the gun gets hot from shooting lots of rounds.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: High Vented Rib

Thanks John, That is now confirmed cuz that was the other reason I was told at work, thinking it's a combination of the two. And because of the flight path of the target in trap shooting, it's not used in skeet shooting.
