    Ditto what harpo said, I have the same gun with a high MM rib. Will have to get your comb way up and add high posts. Original comb looked real bad way, way up so I had a larger/ higher Ebony Comb made for looks only.

    Ask them how much weight it adds to the bbl. That may turn you off. If they can do it in Aluminum, go fo rthat

    I had the Moneymaker Adjustable Rib installed on my TM-1 three years ago. I have had no problems so far (around 50,000 targets). It is a little higher than a TMX rib, so it requires very long posts on the original stock. I replaced stock and forearm with later TMX units and still had to make longer posts. Second picture is original stock, so you see how much comb has to go up. The rib is made of aluminum so it added no weight to barrel, if anything, it might be a little less weight, so I made the adjustable balance system on the front of the forearm. Hope this helps.

    Before having mm install an adjustable rib, contact Dennis Devault and have a look see at what he offers. Dennis's adjustable rib is superior in every way to what mm offers. And unlike mm, Dennis will make sure it shoots the specified POI.

    I have read great things about the shop mentioned in the above post. I would be sure to check it out before purchasing. I had a very good experience dealing with Jay at Moneymaker and wanted to pass the word along. The point of impact on my gun is exact as per instructions I gave them. I am as picky as they get!
