    Does anyone know how the barrel weight and rib height compare between these two models?

    Thanks

    rib height is the same. Weight of the MX-14 single barrel will be higher because rib is steel vs. aluminum on the MX-15.

    Hey Shawn. Where'd you find that link to TS.com/Perazzi? Has it been on a central server?

    zzt, thanks, that's what I was looking for. Do you know what weight is stamped on a .736 bore, 34" mx-15 barrel?

    Thanks again

    wlc, it varies, and is known to be inaccurate at times. The weight stamped on the barrel is what the barrel weighed when sent to the proof house for testing. If additional work was done to the barrel after proofing, it might be lighter than marked, or it could be heaver (adding a rib for instance). The only way to know for certain is to weigh them.
