    My Comb was just a little high so I got an add-on rib from keen-sights . Nice looking rib only a 1/4 inch high at the back . I did work out but I never like the way it fit . Took it off and bought a new set of wood .

    Sell you this add-on rib for 40.00 bucks .

    If you want to try before buying, use balsa wood strips from a hobby shop and make your own add-on rib. Hold it on with electrician's tape. (Or use any type of wood strips.)

    Experimenting will allow you to fine tune the thickness or height of rib you prefer. Be sure to pattern your gun for vertical POI before buying a permanent rib.

    Dave Berlet in New Knoxville, Ohio does add on ribs. He mills out the base of the add on rib so it fits over the top of your existing rib. Double sided tape
    holds it on. He's done 2 for me so far.

    Does the double-sided tape hold well in cold weather?

    I was skeptical about double sided adhesive tape holding things on guns. But, after some experience, it works and works well with the right tape.

    Mr. Ireland, what would be the right tape? A certain brand you recommend?

    Thanks,

    fishguts,
    I have had very good results using 3M two sided automotive trim tape. Can be bought at most auto supply stores (AutoZone, Advance, and more). It is important to clean rib surfaces well before applying. Cost is about $6 to $7.
    Another thing that works well is Black silicone RTV gasket maker. Also available at auto stores. Hope this helps, Marc
