    This is my first ever post to this forum.

    After having raised a family I am looking to return to shooting trap. I dusted off my Beretta 682 with the stock 29-30” barrel and went out for a test ride. It was wonderful to say the least. I have seen this Add-A-Rib advertised and I was wondering if anyone is using the product and if you really need the higher rib. I had pretty good success with the standard OU setup but I would like to advance my shooting as I progress. Does adding this help or hinder that process?

    I have one on my 682. Keeping my head more upright has improved my scores.

    Great company good to work with. I needed to have more of an upright head position and I put the adjustable rib from AddARib on and solved the problem. Call Joe or Ray and they will take care of you.

    One of the things I like about the higher rib is the fact my glasses don't get a smudge from my sweaty shooting glove. I still mount the gun like I did back in my bunker shooting days and having my thumb in a lower position relative to my glasses is a big help. Ron

    D Sassaman, should you be shooting your current set =up well, be advised tha that what ever rib you decide on, you will have to move your comb up to match! add a 1/4 n rib, your commust be raised e same or slightly more, maybe 1/16, etc. ncnerate em!

    D Sassaman.

    As someone noted above, if you raise the rib, you will also need to raise the comb the same distance to keep the gun's point of impact (POI).

    If you want to shoot with a more naturally erect head and neck posture, what you need is either a higher gun mount on your shoulder or a unit called a pad adjuster. These units lower the whole recoil pad, which allows an upright shooting posture. it has little effect on the level of the eye relative to the rib.
