    Ribs yes, but keep other repairs to the professionals.

    Pictures? I have been considering having moneymaker install a rib on my XT but they do not answer emails, as stated above. According to their website it looks like it would cost about $500 for a fixed rib. I expect that the barrel is reblued but the XT has a silver finish near the breech, do they preserve it? Thanks.

    they are not a tech minded bunch-- i gave jay some lottery tickets and he struggled to lookup if he won!! not that he cudnt , he just doesnt take time!!i think his computer is back at the house---his righthand man, mike gets in the shop @ 8:00 and jay around 9-9:30----i live an hour from them and know they work hard so at the end of the day, emails arent a priority---very nice guys who live and breath barrels and rib work---givem a break, the old phone contact is how they do business!!! wally riebesell rock port mo

    They are not the only ones in the gun trade who do not do e-mails. Just call them up. I know lots of guys who have been 100% happy with the ribs Moneymaker has built for them.

    I don't think you would have been happy with the final look if they didn't reblue the barrel.

    Remstar311, I expect the barrel would need reblued but I wanted to know if the factory silver finish near the breech is preserved on an XT. Thanks.

    Great guys to work with they are a small shop so turnaround is not fast but they have built me several ribs and the results were just what I wanted always satisfied Jay is very personable and Mike is just as nice and they listen to what you want and POI is right on they shoot them there until the POI is correct.
