    Anyone know the weight of a high rib 90T? Thinking about one. I understand there were two versions of barrel weight available.

    thanks

    It doesn't make a whole lot of differance about what the gun weighs,as it is so well balanced that all the weight goes away when you mount it.Also the heaveir it is the less felt recoil.Yukon Jack

    My HPAR was in the 10 1/2 lb area. It was very well balanced and was great for registered targets. It wasn't the best tool for games though.

    The low rib guns came in a regular barrel and a heavy barrel. I've never heard of a heavy barrel HPAR. You should measure the bore and constriction of any 90T you are considering to ensure that it has not been messed with. One of the Indiana Gun Club HPARs on the website looks like it has a low rib stock on it.

    k-80 i think you are right about that stock. i mounted that gun and all i could see was the back of the ramp. but the rest of the gun was in great shape

    Do you rememer which Hpar had the wrong stock? I will look again-hopefully Indiana GC will tell me which. Hpar will not work with low rib stock.

    Thanks to all for Input

    Two of the HPAR's at Indiana have low-rib stocks. They would need an adjustable comb to sight up correctly.

    The moneymaker ribbed gun, at Indiana, was originaly a low rib gun.

    The nominal bore size of an HPAR is .736.

    Can someone describe the difference between the "regular" barrel and "heavy" barrel?

    I was unaware there was also a reg/heavy difference.

    Arnie, on the Indiana Gun Club website, it looks like HPAR Item # 14884 has a low rib stock. You can see that the hump in the stock at the front of the comb is lower than an HPAR stock. The Heavy Barrels have thicker walls than the regular barrels and they live up to their name; they are noticably heavier. Doug Braker, the 90T expert can give you the technical scoop. He was at Kolar working on the 90T when it was in production. Just Google his name for his website. He is THE MAN for 90T repairs and rebuilding. He rebuilt my HPAR, nickled the receiver and teflon blued the barrel. It came out better than the one Kolar did for me. By the way, another idiosyncracy on some 90T's is that the C/E clips sometimes break in the trigger assembly, which then jams the trigger. I had this happen twice while shooting. Kolar was looking into stainless steel clips. Some guys here on TS.com recommended using tiny O-rings on the ends of the cross pins. I was admittedly skeptical about this "fixit" but the darn O-rings worked, and I have had not problems in the last year since I switched over. Bob

    Don't let the release trigger stop you from acquiring a nice gun. I bought a very clean "T" recently with a release trigger through TS.com; sent it up to the GunDr (Braker) for a hammer swap and tuneup - had it back within a week... All before I took my first shots with it.

    You'll want any gun you purchase gone through anyway...
