    Anyone have one and what is your expirience with them? Do you know how much weight it adds?

    That's a question that I have also. Of course, the added weight would vary with the height of the rib that you used, but I would like to know an average weight.

    I put an adjustable add-a-rib on a set of 32" 20 gauge Blaser Sporter barrels so I could use them on my SuperSport. I use them for skeet and subgauge sporting clays. I have been pleased with them so far and have had no problems.

    I got the 1/2" rib but with the base it measures 5/8" in total height when set all the way down. Before installing the rib I had a set of barrel weights that totaled 3 oz.on those barrels. After installation I had to remove the weights to get the balance back to where I wanted it so that should give you some idea. Of course the rib adds weight all along the barrel so that would have some effect on the balance.

    I didn't see any weights given on the web site but if you call Ray or Joe at 631-319-6959 I'm sure they can tell you and answer any other questions. I talked to them a few times before I purchased and they were very helpful in finding the right setup for me. If you haven't checked their site here's a link: http://adjustarib.com/

    I installed a 3/4" adjustable rib on a 32" top single krieghoff barrel 2 days ago. It took me longer to read the instructions and clean the original rib than it did to mount the new one. I waited 36 hours for the glue to cure before removing the clamps and shouldering the shotgun, this happened 45 minutes ago. Obviously I have not shot the shotgun but have been playing with it. The workmanship is great. It looks good and feels perfect. I just purchased the K32 and haven't shot it much but I really don't notice much additional weight. As mentioned by raystownbob, Ray and Joe are easy to talk to and eager to assist. Sorry I can't be specific as to additional weight but I did 25 lifts and didn't notice the extra weight. Maybe it is just way too nice being able to keep my head up.

    I have installed two of them, both were the 3/4 rib with the 1/8 base.
    I installed the first one on my 34" TM1, and the second on my 30" 391
    Installation was simple, I can tell the guns are little heavier but not much.
    It took me longer to build new pins for my stock than anything else.
