    Im thinking of adding a high rib on my XT. Has anyone done this to an XT? Im not looking for one of those crazy high ribs, just about an inch higher. Any advice on who to go to? Any pictures and comments appreciated?

    I would try either Scott Hyde (509)276-9227 or keensights I think there web address is www.keensights.com for an add-on rib. scott made a 5/8" add on rib for my xt and I love it. although it was a littile heavy at first I wound up milling some of the slots out now its all good only problem was finding taller posts for the adj.comb.

    I put one like you describe on my XT and I love it. Now I can keep my head upright and I'm more relaxed. My shooting has improved substantially since I did this.

    I don't know anything about Scott's ribs, But, I do know you get what you pay for with a rib from keen sights. All of their ribs are custom ordered, and can be ordered with what ever POI you desire. They can be made in custom width, custom height and even tapered. They will also match the post on your existing rib if you want. Just My two cents worth, Norm Van Pelt

    I bought this rib a couple of years ago so I have no clue as to what they go for now.I installed it my self with the double sided sticky tape that comes with it.Get ahold of Scott and see what he can do for you.I am sure he will be better at helping you then I am. Good luck. John
