    i am debating on purchasing o/u with taller adjustable rib. currently shooting a 687 etchen o/u with slightly taller rib! also shoot a 90T har with a very comfortable feel. what are your thots on a mx2005 o/u 32" w/ adj. rib? maybe i am not looking hard enuf but i see more mx10rs or mx2008(?) in the range racks. that "tall" rib on the 2005 looks like the ticket for a good view!

    acss,

    The reason you don't see many MX2005 guns is that they are only a couple of years on the market. Some people realy like the high rib.

    The MX10RS and MX2000 have been for sale for 8 to 10 years, many more have been made.

    Resale % will be about the same, I think.

    acss, I'd suggest you consider additional parameters. The three guns you mentioned have significantly different feels. If you like swinging a 90T, a Perazzi is going to feel like greased lightning. Your Beretta is in between.

    You haven't said why you want a taller rib, so it is hard to advise you.

    i wud agree on the differance on "feel" of each differant gun. the 90tHAR has a nice pull up feel particularly since i moved the backend up w/ adj recoil pad. its taller rib has my head up! the 687 o/u seems quicker to the target with a lil lower head position. what i am trying to accomplish is an o/u for all??? ( i dont think i'm cheap) . i like shooting a 80/10 poi. and feel like i am raising my head on straight aways hence the tallest rib?

    Hello all, while we are on the subject of the Perazzi MX2005. Where would you recommend I search for an O/U choked 31.5" barrel set for my Perazzi MX2005? I purchased the gun with the unsingle barrel 34" full no choke and of course should have bought a combo. I have been told by other members at our gun club that the MX2005 will only accept a MX2005 barrel set. I haven't shot this gun enough to provide any meaningful data or recommendations. Regards, Lewis Lyons

    ACSS: I have a MX 2005 unsingle came from two KX-5 Krieghoffs and I can Keep my head up straight and my non-dominant Eye is NOT in front of my dominant eye also can see the target exiting the trap house like never before in the 8 years I have got back into this sport the only thing I can say is that you have to have a little patients of waiting for the target to get above the barrel before you go after it with the high rib all I have to say is that it was the best decision I have made yet and I'm very happy the only other gun I would be interested in right now would be a Dennis Devault INfinity Ultra but I already had this bought when I met Denny, but he is doing a stock for me. I have become more consistent with this gun then the other two K guns. Pat.k.Hope this was a help.

    A possible second reason you don't see many, 1 st being 3 years on the market, is $$$$. I shot a TMX for years and bought a MX10 Adj. rib combo. The rib is a little lower than a TMX and I am not real happy with that. I am considering trading. An option, get a regular MX-8, have Moneymaker install adj. ribs for $850. per bbl. and have an adj. comb installed. This can be done for less than 1/2 the price of a new MX2005.

    I have heard that there have been problems with the MX-2005 RIBS, coming loose or another problem, check it out first.

    I have not heard of any Mx2005 rib problems Mine is fine and I check it when I clean it after every shoot and haven't seen anything going wrong with any attachment points. But I will keep looking, thanks for the info Gary.

    I haven't heard anything about loosening ribs on the 2005, but you might want to check before you let anyone remove a perazzi rib from it's barrel, supposedly they are installed under tension from the factory and the tube heads south when relieved...do a search before you have money-taker....i mean money maker touch it...good luck
