1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    The rib is the "new" 10-6 as opposed to the heavier 12-8. I have a set like these and they are livelier than the old SC barrels.

    I also believe it has one less post and is 1/4" shorter. Not sure on that though.

    Bill,
    Look on the krieghoff site if you need exact numbers, but I think it weighs the same as a 30" 12-8 barrel.

    Well JimmyC I went to the Krieghoff web-site and here's what it said.

    All barrels have factory screw-in chokes.

    30" bbls with tapered-step rib (12mm to 8mm) 3 pounds 10 ounces

    30" bbls with tapered-flat rib (10mm to 6mm) 3 pounds 10 ounces



    32" bbls with tapered-step rib (12mm to 8mm) 3 pounds 12 ounces

    32" bbls with tapered-step rib (10mm to 6mm) 3 pounds 13 ounces

    Here's the link -- http://www.krieghoff.com/ki/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=57&Itemid=67


    Well I'm glad that's cleared up.

    Let me ask the question again. What makes these ltwt barrels?

    If having fewer, shorter rib posts makes it lighter as has been suggested, wouldn't the taller rib posts on the trap barrel make it heavier?

    Now if they're using a titanium hangar and choke tubes it would make ANY barrel lighter when compared to a similiar barrel with the standard hanger and choke tubes.

    Also, if you notice the difference between the tapered-step rib barrels is only 2 ounces between 30" and 32" and for the 10-6mm rib it's 3 ounces.

    Any explanation? I'm not saying it isn't lighter but I'd like to know how they did it -- only making the rib a little skinnier and dropping one post just doesn't seem to be a reasonable answer.
