    Talked to the people from fabarms today. I held the new third generation stock. It is moved forward another 2 MM. That was original 5 MM and now 2 more for a total of 7MM. This time it feels pretty good. They also have a sporting model without the movable rib. Low rib model and it looks nice and has a nice feel., Monte Carlo stock and adjustable comb and almost the same dimensions as the trap gun and a bit cheaper. The release trigger seems to be the holdup on the gun. The factory said they will NOT make a release and cole is the factory guy. Not sure about cole or if he has produced any yet. Phillips has made some but not sure about the set and release pressure, They work ok. The gun is nice now and has a good feel. Fabarms said the gun will handle anything in 2 3/4 inch shells form 7/8 ounce to boomers with no problem. The reason is that the only shoot 2 3/4 inch and the other guns were 3 and even 3 1/2 inch models and they had to compromise in the gas operation to make everything work. With the short chamber he said it will work with the lightest loads and even the trainer loads. motordoc

    Thanks for the info- do you know if (and when)they're going to bring that low rib version over in a full left hand configuration as well?
