    On a 1100 will a step rib raise your POI vs. a standard flat rib.
    Will a 30" step rib shoot much difference than a 28" standard rib?

    I'd rate the difference between the two as 50/50 for the flat rib and 60/40 for the step rib.

    In my experience, no.

    I went from a 28" field barrel with a flat rib to a 30" step rib barrel on my 1187, the ribs being identical to the 1100 ribs.

    The POI did not change, at least not by any amount I could measure. This is because the front beads are at almost the exact same heights. Keep in mind that a shotgun is like a rifle, but it's missing the rear sight. Your shooting eye becomes the rear sight, so to speak.

    Because of that, the only way to change the POI is to raise or lower your eye. To raise the POI you need a taller comb.

    Why the step rib then? So that you see less of the rib top with factory trap stocks. This becomes a moot point if you raise the comb higher than the factory comb height.

    If you want to raise your POI for as little as $15.00, remove the Bradley style front bead and replace it with a Site-Science low profile light pipe.
    Lowering the height of the front site will raise your POI enough to notice the difference and the flourescent green lite pipe does help with eye dominance.
