I have started shooting sporting clays and I shoot a 682 gold with custom wood and new barrel from coles and I love it, but I am interested in looking at a mid-rib gun option and I know Cesar Guerini makes a summit ascent in a mid-rib. Are there others guns made with a mid rib? Considering add a rib just to try.

jballance,

A couple of thoughts.

I have heard of people buying balsa wood strips from craft stores and coloring them black with a marker and taping them to their rib to try.

Another alternative is buying a rib from http://www.addaribs.com/

I bought one of these for a Perazzi MT-6 and it worked as advertised.

Good luck,
Dave

Zoli makes a mid-rib version of their Z-Sport. I recently acquired a mid-rib barrel that I had fitted to one of my Zoli receivers. I have only had a chance to shoot it once, but I like it so far. My brother prefers his mid-rib Cesar Guerini to the flat rib that he had before it.

Cheap - easy way to see if that does what you want and add subtract to get the exact height you need/want :)

The Blaser F3 Vantage is their mid rib gun. I have also had the Blaser flat rib and the SuperSport high rib guns. My first Blaser was a flat rib, then went to the SuperSport. When they came out with the Vantage I gave it a try and it was fine but I still shoot the high rib SuperSport better. It's all a matter of personal choice. It would be nice if you could shoot all of them to help make a decision.

My wife bought a Browning used gun, after about three weeks I asked how she liked the green light tube on it at the front?

"I never realized it was there " she said. Perfect, don't look at the barrel!

I went with the wood strips, and ended up ordering two addarib for two of my flat rib guns after a demo with a Blazer F3 to confirm I want to go that direction. After about 1200 rounds though these two my only decision is what make my new gun is going to be.

the Zoli Z sport mid rib is decent also there is the browning citori cxt high rib, they call it a high rib, but I think it's a decent inbetween height.

Blaser mid ribs are extremely popular as well

Demo'd a Zoli Mid and High rib yesterday.. I really like the balance and swing of these guns. It's hard to explain. It just feels like it is a smooth and effortless swing. It points very well for me. More so with the high rib. Go figure as I always stayed away from the high rib guns. Looks like they actually fit me best. Can't argue with the results. Shot both and did much better with the HR..

Perazzi makes that MX8 vintage I believe it's called, that's a mid rib, otherwise as others mentioned, Zoli, and Blaser are your options.

Or just add a rib via balsa wood or whatever and see if you like it.

The current trend, at least among the top 30 shooters in the game, has definitely steered away from mid and high ribs.

When I looked a couple months ago, it was like 26 that shot dead flat or SLIGHTLY raised ribs (like the Kolar Max fixed rib or the Krieghoff sporter rib, which are about 1/8" taller than dead flat), two shot Krieghoff Pro Sporters, and there were one or two I couldn't determine. Many that did shoot high ribs have gone back to flat ribs.

AFAIK, this is accurate. I wonder why?
