    I notice at least 2 different style of vent rib on 1100 over the yrs. The most common seems to be a gradual taper to the receiver and some seem to have sort of a step up. If some one could enlighten me on this and would the 2 different style ribs have different POI. Thanks,Dave

    The short version of the long story - as far as I know it anyway - is that the "flat rib" was generally used on field barrels while the "stepped" rib was common to target barrels. But lately, Remington has only used the flat rib on all its ribbed barrels. Others may have more detailed information but the stepped ribs are considered more desireable by target shooters. Because the rib height at the muzzle on both styles is the same, they both shoot to the same POI.

    If the rib is low by the muzzle and high by the receiver it is a trap barrel with a high POI.

    If the front and rear are about the same height it is a flat shooter used for skeet or sporting clays. HMB

    Ed hit the nail on the head. But I'll add that the early trap barrels were also flat ribbed.
