    Im not sure if this is just some stupid phycological thing or if a smooth rib like those found on browning trap guns makes the way you move to a target different than the grooves found on winchester, kolar kriegoff trap guns? i feel like i like the groves better but i shoot a browning. i dont know if its a mental thing i should change because it makes me feel uncomfortable or what.

    Because of my vision, I cannot realy get a focus on the rib anyway, so I have noticed no difference. It helps me to focus far away, where the bird will be right before I call for a bird.

    The grooves reduce glare.

    The wavy ones look just way past cool.

    And, who would want to go to the line without a groovy rib?
