    I would think a Citori Plus would be right up your alley

    With the addittion of one of the add-on ribs I would think a low rib gun could fit you need. For example,a Remington 3200 with a custom piggy-back rib could be adjusted to any height need, & would be a lot easier on the wallet.

    Good luck, break 'em all!

    A guy that shoots at the same club, always places high in the state in regular doubles, and I believe may have won the wheelchair category at the Grand this year. While I believe he shoots a Pgun top single at the 16, for doubles he runs them with a Beretta 391.

    A couple of weeks ago a seller had a 391 for sale with a high rib, it really was a 'screaming deal' on the package - rad, adjustable comb, etc. His name was Tim and his email address is as follows: iaturnkey321@msn.com

    You might do a search back withing the last month or so. His gun would be a great opportunity to try a high rib at minimum cost and risk on a gun model that I've seen a champion use for doubles.

    Good luck!

    Perhaps if you could sell your BT and with that money, buy a Browning XT combo set or a Cynergy combo set. Both of these guns might be had for 3000.00 and you would not have to do anything to them. If you watch this site you will see sets with mid height ribs and sometimes reducers in them. I have seen a couple such sets on this site in the last 90 days. While it is now winter, it would be the perfect time to make a gun switch and get to know the new gun, before the regular season begins.

    I am seeing a lot of Beretta 682 O/U for $1400 to $1900. They are a good, dependable gun. I have had two of them, the 1st one I bought about 1996, and neither one has ever given me any trouble.

    +1 on the Citori Plus. Why give away half/all your empties and torque-off the shooter to your right with an auto. The Citori Plus has a fairly high rib and a bunch of other adjustment advantages. The 30" is a doubles crushing machine and weighs only 9 ounces more that a BT99 Plus. Good luck.
