    MX15 and MX2000 unsingles look similar but differ. Make you owqn judgements.

    MX15 is a unsingle

    MX2000 unsingle has a lower point of impact with 'stacked beads"

    MX2000 O/U... Judge for yourself

    Thanks MIA, That was just what I was looking for. Also explains why the O/U doesn't work well on singles.

    The unsingle barrel from MX-15 has one more notch to rise.

    You can have more notches if you want. Several smithies do it.

    So, with all the Perazzi adjustable rib documentation, as listed here, it indicates the "raise of pattern vs. point of aim" in inches. At what distance do you suppose they are using to indicate this value? Do you think it is the average yardage at which we break targets? I don't think I recall ever seeing that indicated anywhere. Was just curious what you think it is.

    I know Laibs will cut extra notches. Who else does it?

    different animal entirely. The RS is a hig rib whereby the MX2000 and MX15 have more normal ehight ribs.

    Jack, you did many right things. Don't doubt yourself.

    Vern, RS model has higher ribs & Stocks, you can shoot with "straighter" neck.

    Vern,

    To the best of my knowledge.....a RS rib is 3/16" taller than a MX15.

    Vern. Uh... ask a metal guy. I ama wood guy tht deals in fractions. But I do know enough K80 RS types that can tell you exactly how high their gun shoots. Me? I use space between the beads of my fixed rib MX3. Really, the K80 guys I know, understand their POIs right down to the gnat's pa-toot.

    I have never shot a MX2000. Owned 2 MX15s and both were excellent cannons, but I doubted my ability to overcome the learning curve associated with a unsingle. Same experience wiht the two K80s I have owned. But my unsinlge experiences had problematical cross fire exacerbations. I am really in charge of my eye/bbl relationship these days. Well, at least most of these days. And shootingin the winter does little to bolster good habits. But I shoot in about 10 hours, so all is well.And the weather is moderate for us WI/MN types today..

    POI's for Perazzi

    MX2000 ---- 12in.-5 notch

    MX15------- 15in- 6 notch
    MX2000RS----9in.- 4 notch
    MX10--------9in- 4 notch
    MX2005------9in. 5 notch

    Remember, adjust comb height .125 for every notch , up or down. Hope this helps, and yes I have owned all except the 2005. Roy

    The k-80 Pro Rib is .050 lower in the front and .125 higher in the back than than the K-80 Trap Special. The Pro Rib is reported to shoot 120%. Hope this helps, they say each line marking on the block represents 3in. in increased POI moving the front down. You now are bending the rib instead of bending the barrel on the K-80. Hope this helps, Roy
