Just thought I would post a few pictures of some add on ribs we are making for another member (ouch) here on trapshooters.com. These are the first one's we've made, and wanted to get opinions.


This picture is from when we were cutting the sides to width with a fly cutter.


This is a side view of the nearly finished rib.


This is a picture of the nearly finished rib on the 870 barrel that it will fit. We still have to cut a notch out of the end, machine a groove, and put a taper in it. But you get the idea of what it will look like when it's done. These are made out of delrin plastic. Thanks, Josh.

Looks pretty good. Does the bottom of the add on straddle the original rib or does it just sit flat on top of the original.

This one does not straddle the rib. It wouldn't be a difficult feature to add in if needed though. We are curious as to why it is a good thing. This one was built in about 2 hours to where it is, and will probably take another hour to finish. Thanks, Josh.

the ribs look great. I have been wondering why no one has a delrin rib with slots, great idea. Another good touch is that they are thinner at top than at base. Any idea of what you will need to sell them for? randy

Josh,

The ones that straddle the rib have a much more postive grip on the rib. They don't try to come loose in a soft case and are going to be straight when installed, if the grove is centered.

I had an 870 comp with some sort of Aluminum add-on rib that strattled the rib. I sold it to a buddy of mine.

The next add-on rib I purchase will straddle the rib. This is kind of trickey on a step-rib Remington barrel.

All Good,

Actually, the person we are doing the job for is the one who bought the delrin. I talked to him on the phone earlier today and he said that a little strip 1 inch tall by 30 inches long and .300" thick is reletively cheap. We aren't sure what we would sell them for yet, there would be a price difference in heights as they don't require vents after they get so short. Thanks for all the comments, Josh.

A good quality silicon adhesive works great for add on ribs. I have installed several aluminum add-ons this way and never had one come loose or have a problem. Just as important, they can readily be removed without any damage to the original rib. Just use a fine piece of strong string (fishing line is ideal) to "slide" between the original rib and the add on. Cuts the adhesive, but does no damage to either rib. The silicon itself will not damage the rib finish either.

Nice looking rib. I have had Dave Berlet in New Knoxville, Ohio build me a few ribs out of delrin. Dave builds his to fit over the edge of the existing rib and uses double sided tape to hold them on. Dave will put any amount of taper in the rib to change the poi for you. Just tell him where you want the gun to shoot and he will build that into the rib. You can contact Dave at 419-753-2557 or DSBERLET@NKTELCO.NET if you are interested and want more information.

The rib looks great.

I talked to Richard a couple of days ago. He is looking forward to trying the gun with the new rib (after he riases the comb on the old, 870 stock being used for the experimentation).

I think you need to clean up the rear of the rib. The sharp angle looks tacky. Make a smooth flow to the receiver. Slanted posts would look better also. I use permatex to attach my add on rib.

The angle could easily be changed and that's no big deal if Richard decides he doesn't like the look. As for the posts, making them slanted would take way too much work on our manual machine to make it worth out time. I appreciate the comments. Thanks, Josh.

I got a black epoxy adhesive from Marble's one time to put an aluminum add on rib on a plain barrel.

They told me it was the same stuff used to put heads on golf club shafts.

It has been on for 8 years, and is still soft if you put your fingernail into it.

I would go after that stuff again if it was needed.

The best way I've found to attach a add-on rib is to use RTV silicone. This dries in a reasonable amount of time and stays nice and pliable. It's also easy to clean off. Make sure to clean both surfaces very well prior to install.

Big Papa,

Thanks for the heads up on the add-on rib info. I'll check into this on my next project gun.

You probably have two holes in your original rib. The front and rear bead holes. I bought a 3/56 bottoming tap and threaded the rear (press in) bead hole on my Brownings. Then I drilled through the add on rib at these locations and screwed the rib down over black RTV. This gives you two locations where the rib is pinned in addittion to the holding power of the RTV. Works good.

We made 4 of these for Richard (ouch), 3 for this 870 and 1 for a .22 he is experimenting with. The shotgun ribs were 1/4", 3/16" and 1/8" tapers. If we made anymore like this, they would be pretty high priced as they require more than just clamping in the vice and milling a little plastic away. They required different widths on top and bottom, a groove down the middle, cutting the taper on the bottom, and a cut out on the end for the sight. I've been getting a few requests and I've been telling them right around $130-$150 for a relatively simple vented rib with beads installed. But, it depends on the amount of machining required, which varies from rib to rib. Thanks for the feedback, Josh.

Am I asking too much for these ribs? I've had a ton of inquiries, but only 1 new customer. People ask how much, I give them a ball park estimate, and I don't hear from them again. Any ideas? Thanks, Josh.

I think it can be a couple of things. One the fact that folks are holding on to their $$ right now, and two, sometimes when they hear the word "plas***} they have the idea it should be a lot less than the price quoted.

I think you're going after the wrong market.. I'd make "High" drop in ribs for MX10's MX-15's MX2000's.. that would replace the factory rib using the factory adjustable parts.. I'd make the "Cole" drop on rib to order.. A drop on K-80 extra high rib.. and maybe something for a Beretta.. Being a factory replacement.. you could make a few instead of one at a time..

I have put several add-on ribs made from different materials on shotguns and used about every kind of adhesive available. By far, hands down the best, easiest and less messy way to attach a rib to a shotgun barrel is 3M double sided tape you can buy at your local parts store. Make sure you use the kind that has the red backing and clean both surfaces before installation.

It will not come off while shooting and is easy to remove if you need to.

LOL, thanks for the help Mike. I've been in contact with someone about 15 miles away from me who has a Perazzi for about a week now. We are looking to set up a time to meet and have a chance to look at the gun. A stainless rib would look pretty cool, but would be pretty expensive. Thanks again, Josh.

Have plans to look at a Perazzi next week. Is there really a customer base for these ribs? If we're going to put in the effort to make them, get them coated and advertise them, I'd like to know that we are doing it for a reason. Just think we need some kind of "market research" before jumping in...Thanks, Josh.

Josh I received your add-on for my Kolar 30" O/U barrels yesterday. You guys did a great job everything was just as we discussed and fit was perfect. In fact it was so good that I doubt the add on would come off even with no adhesive. But being anal I did use a very thin bead of black RTV to attach it. The RTV is curing now and it should get a try on Saturday. Again great job at a very reasonable price. THANKS!!

The top of the rib is easily finished with a single point "flycutter".. If slightly tilted you get a slightly concave pattern that most shooters like.. Set the table feed to get the desired pattern..

As you can see in the first picture on this thread, we have the fly cutter, which is what we used on Chip's rib. The only problem is that it cuts as it swings back around. The only way to avoid this is to tilt the head of the mill, but we weren't too enthusiastic about doing that. So we ran it and it came out better than we thought it would. PBB, do you know of any people who are interested in a higher drop in rib for a Perazzi? Don't want to put our time into something that isn't worth it. Thanks, Josh.

When you tilt the head.. it only cuts in one direction.. I have a MX10..34" that needs a rib.. Should you decide to make them..I have no doubt 10 to 20 would fly away.. Make them so the Perazzi parts fit..and its a drop on.. The Seitz rib is almost an exact duplicate of the Perazzi rib ..So.. you make the "master' blank.. and do the final cut to order.. Then.. you also get people with a MX2005/MX2008 that want a lower rib.. The customers are endless if you have time.. Now.. not everyone will want steel.. and aluminum might also be an option.. I would want the rib on my ultralight out of aluminum. You now have 2 orders.. but I think your market will be mainly MX2005 height ribs for the MX10.. Should you put one on my barrel..I'll bring it to the "Grand" for all to see.. All Good.. Mike Send me a E-mail.. and I'll speak to you directly.. All Good.. Mike

Thanks for the help, they would most likely be made out of aluminum.

I'm glad you are happy with the ribs Richard, I hope they are what you where hoping for. Thanks, Josh.

Is it possible to take a couple of those oval cut-outs and make them just vertical slits as with the CG or K80 special ribs?

Are you saying that you would want it to have one of the rectangle vents, then a 3/8" wide or similar vertical slit, then the rectangle vent again? If so, we could do it, but wouldn't be able to make the add on line up with your original posts. Hope this answered your question, Josh.

Figured I'd push this one to the top and show what we've been up to. Below is a picture of one of our BT's with one of our add on ribs on it (also our adjustable butt plate). We've been shooting with the rib just zip tied on and it's been working well so far. We are still waiting to get dimensions off of a Perazzi rib and and intend on making a proto as soon as we can.



Thanks, Josh.

Nice job. If I sent you my rib off of a KS5 kreighoff could you duplicate only taller and how much would it cost? Thank You Tim Dearth

Do you have a picture of the rib? Otherwise I'll have a few questions to give you a definite price. PM or email me if interested. Thanks, Josh.

I've gotten a few emails from people I think are serious about getting a rib. So I email them back and don't hear anything and am starting to think maybe their email is blocking my response. So, if you've emailed me but haven't received a response either check your "spam" folder, or please PM me here on TS.com and we can talk that way. Sorry for any inconvenience. Thanks, Josh.

Josh I've been shooting my Kolar O/U barrels a bunch the last couple of days and I am very pleased with the rib you made for me. Now there is absolutely no change in stock settings needed when I switch from my top single to the O/U barrels. In fact the only issue I have now is that I can do as well at 16yds with the Over barrel as I can with my topsingle. GREAT work and good luck with your growing business.

Okay, so you guys that are saying you want a higher drop in rib for your MX2000's want this:



To look like this?



Not the unsingle of course, but like the O/U barrels. If so, are the ribs on the 2000's the same as the MX10's, or are they completely different? We have dimensions for an MX10, and if they are the same, would make our lives so much easier. Thanks, Josh.

Josh,

Please keep me updated on your ribs. Because of the book, I receive frequent inquires about removing wood from combs and I always reply that an add-on rib us almost always preferable.

It would be good to be able to recommend you if you get things worked out so you can begin selling ribs.

If you prefer, call me at (920) 464-0124 (Wisconsin).

Rollin

I remember when I put a low rib on a MX-10 The low rib was a drop on.. but in the book they listed quite a few MX-10 ribs which covered many years.. There were very minor production changes that I think evolved into todays ribs.. once the rib is made.. The location of the center post stayed the same.. I'd think if you left an extra 3/8" on each end.. that blank could be fitted to everything..
