    HELLO:
    i have a browning bps trap gun with monte carlo stock and a 30" barrel. the gun shoots to low for me. i have a meadows industry convert a stock pad on it, but it feels to uncomfortable because i need to raise the comb to high to shoot the gun well. i have bent barrels in the past, but after shooting the gun awhile, seems the barrel goes back down to its original position. what do you think of this idea? i will cut the rib, bend the barrel up, pattern the gun, once i like where the poi is at, can i put any type of solder or weld to the cut rib so the barrel won't go back down to it's original position? do you think this will work if so, what can i use on the rib so it would not move back to it's original position? or, should i just save up for an adjustable stock?

    Steel has a memory - a very long one. Barrel bending is temporary at best and is destructive at worse. There is no need to put your gun through that. Get an adjustable comb. (also consider there are ways to temporarily raise your comb and they do not cost 150 bucks either).

    Or you could just turn the gun upside down.

    Just bend it a bit too far, then back. It'll work fine and stay there,

    You should test the POI first, of course. After wouldn't hurt either, since you will find out more about what you like - or don't like, which can happen too, you know.

    First, check the present POI and make sure the gun is shooting too low. It is possible that you, and not the gun, are shooting low. My gun is set to shoot +100% high and I frequently shoot under targets. That is my problem and the the guns problem.

    Back when I was bending barrels, I would over bend them and then take them back down. I did find my barrel moving back toward the original configuration after several thousand rounds and I would nudge it back up. After the barrel is bent is is important to frequently check the POI.

    I would not cut the rib and then solder it after the barrel is bent. Ribs are not designed to keep the barrel in place and some ribs are free floating.

    Pat,
    Ribs on a K-80 and Remington 3200 OU are designed to keep the top barrel POI constant while the front hanger adjusts the lower barrel POI. HMB

    I like to use a propain torch on the under side of the barrel and chill the rib with nitrogen? Gets the pattern up 24 inches. Won.t stay to long so I called dennis devault and had a delron rib attached and I installed an adj comb. Now I Don't have the $ to practice but I dont have to the gun shoots whereever I look.
