    3m, works great, full length, if you need to remove take a piece of fishing line and run under rib. Use a sawing motion, after rib is off use your thumb and start rubbing, it will roll up under your thumb. Hope this helps.

    i use quite a few clamps to hold in place overnite--

    also warm up barrel and delrin, seems like tape sticks better!!!

    You can also use the 3M auto trim tape. You can't remove it like the foam tape though. It is extremely strong bonding.

    Some two-side tape is just too thick, (imo). I found the 3-M product, "3M 300LSE" works wonderful, and is super thin. A little difficult to work with because of how (less-than) paper thin it really is, but worth the extra effort. I spray Rem-oil on the gun barrel, over a year now and has not effected the bond between the rib and cross-fire rail. good luck, Matt Nicol

    I have done several add on ribs and use the 3M tape from a auto parts store. I also made a wooden set up for my vice about 10 inches long. I install the rib making sure it is centered correctly and then clamp it in the vice sliding it along applying a fair amount of pressure along the whole rib a vice is very strong so use caution the mechanical advantage is wonderful but needs common sense and is worth the effort the bond is so solid.. When done the rib is ready to shoot instantly the cleaning is a must and I rough up the bottom of the rib a slick surface is not what you want !! Also if the tape is too wide apply it along one edge of the original rib leaving the top of the tape still covered dip a box cutter in alcohol and slice the excess off the overhanging side with a share blade it will run right down the side of the rib. Then peal off the top and apply rib whala. I just added a rib to my Beretta 680 unsingle an shot it yesterday for POI and it came out awesome.
