    Big difference, MX2005 is roughly 3/4 of an inch higher than a MX2000. Receivers look the same except for "2000" vs. "2005."

    Is it the receiver or the rib?

    Just to confirm: The MX2000/8 receiver, the MX2000/3 receiver and the MX2000RS receiver are identical--right? The shooting application is determined by the rib and comb/stock combinstion selected. Correct??

    Steve,

    Could you measure the spacing of the center post and the adjustment pins at either end? I am curious to know if the 2005 rib would fit on an RS barrel. Could you check the OU too? Obviously the stock would need to change to match the rib.

    Thanks Steve,

    This is a placeholder. Tonight I will try to shoot the exact same picture of my barrel and post it up. That way we can know for sure and refer people back to these pictures in the future.

    A dealer told me there has been problems w/2005 ribs coming loose at silver solder points on the Bbl and has had to send a few back.

    Has anyone else heard about this from a 2005 owner?

    I was told the 2005 will take either the RS or the 2008 rib,

    the RS will take the 2005 rib but not the 2008

    and the 2008 will take the 2005 but not the RS

    I was also told its possible to order a MX2000s with the 2005 barrel/rib, saving wasting money on removable triggers, as it would come with fixed coil springs.
