    just curious if anyone owns/shoots the Perazzi MX2005 SR (short rib), the gun with the half rib a.k.a short rib and glove grip stock. It came out earlier this year. I know what the glove grip stock feels like as I have it on my 20 gauge. I'm interested in feedback on the short rib on on this particular gun.

    Thanks.

    Had a friend go to Brescia and have his made at the factory.

    It is in Commiefornia at Dan Bonnias's shop.

    Will be shipped to him Tuesday. He is shooting my 2000/10 at this time.

    We'll see how he does with it.

    He got the top single combo.

    There is a well-known shooter (Mike Dupre, also a well-known innovater recognized for many developments in the sport) in So-Cal who shoots a half rib barrel made up by a well-known Perrazi factory gunsmith in Azusa. He had to go to that rib due to loss of his left eye. Fortunately, he is a righty with eye and shooting; this type of rib helps him a good deal as a now one-eyed shooter.

    ramorton: Plese don't knock California. Governor Brown is giving each ATA California resident member a voucher for any American-Made single barrel trapgun next year if, and here's the catch, we pay our state taxes on time....really.....this is to help the economy's recovery.

    And then I woke up. The dream stopped.

    trapen: how does the short rib work on targets other than trap targets? Have you tried using it for sporting clays?

    I'm a one eyed shooter and have had a number of mid and high rib guns which seem to work for me.

    Mike Dupre is a friend and as his eye sight failed he and a good friend began experimenting with a number of changes to his guns, adding a higher short rib is one of the changes they made. Changing to a short rib helped Mike improve his scores, especially on doubles. While Mike was going through the process of changing ribs, I had the opportunity to shoot his short ribbed barrels. I became intrigued with concept and decided I would put something together as the $15,000 or so Perazzi wanted for a MX8-SR with a glove stock, as sweet as they are was out of my expermental budget, way out.

    I copied Perazzi's short rib, it ended up being a little higher than theirs because we attached it by clamping it to an existing flat ribbed barrel, I see now they offer two heights of their SR. I did put a mid bead which is at the very rear of the sighting plane. Because I don't have a companion stock for this high of a rib, I was forced to use fairly long comb pins to get the comb high enough on my existing stock to see over the rib.

    The result, you can definitely see the target sooner and clearer and make a quicker move to it, but for me, becuase I haven't spent enough time shooting with this rib, I'm not yet comfortable on all target presentations to proclaim it's the best configuration for me. I'm happy the whole set up, 30" o/u barrel and adjustable rib cost me less than $1,700 not $15,000 or so.........

    If your a one eyed shooter and have an opportunity to shoot the under barrel Silver Shooter has pictured above, do it, you won't believe how much it will improve your target view.

    No question a short ribs work for some especially the Olympic shooters.

    P S If you shoot at Redlands, you're welcome to shoot my SR o/u
