    Can anyone tell me the real difference between the new High Rib Sporting and the 725 Trap with the adjustable straight stock. They look nearly identical other than the fore stock, but there is 1 lb difference between the two. I imagine that the sporting shoots flatter, but I can't find the numbers to verify. I am considering the High Rib for my son to shoot trap mainly, but would like the facts.

    Thanks all...

    Regards, KJ

    I too want to know!!! No dealers at the Grand had the HR Sporting and most of them told me it would be late fall at the best till available. I am thinking I need the HR Sporting for skeet and SC. I did demo the 725 low rib sporting at Sparta last week but it is just hard for me to shoot a low rib gun.

    I don't know the difference, but I shot the 725 Trap O/U today. I must say it felt great and shot even better. I thought my 24/25 was pretty good having never picked the gun up before. Missed the first bird out. This was shooting bottom barrel with flush mount Full choke. The gun had the Monte Carlo stock no adjustable comb.

    the high-rib sporting is the same design and dimensions as the low rib, but has an adjustable comb and super high rib. Is not a parallel comb like the trap gun. Expect to see the new sporter this fall...

    I have the 725 Trap with the adjustable comb. It does not have a straight or ( parallel ) comb. Drop at the comb is 1 11/16 and drop at the heel is 1 15/16. I am using it for skeet/sporting/ and trap. Love the balance of this gun. I looked at the MC non adjustable 725, but it just did not fit me. From what I have been told the hi-rib sporting model will be released in the first quarter of 14.
