    Can anyone out there measure the rib height of their Krieghoff Trap Special. I'm not sure what the proper weigh to measure it is but I would take a measurement from the muzzle with the rib in it's heighest position.

    I could use the same measurement on the new Guerini also.

    Thanks for your help.

    Goose,
    Thanks for the info but I don't think the drop at comb is what I need. Because the stock is also higher on the ultra-high rib guns like the Trap Special, Guerini and Perezzi MX-2005 it really doesn't give me an idea of how much higher the rib is than standard trap guns. I've been messing around with a DT-10 and wanted to know how much taller the rib is on the other guns.

    Thanks

    POI is what you should be worrying about unless you care what it looks like.

    I have wondered about this comparison, also. Nothing to do with poi or comb height just the height of the rib compared to other guns.

    I think one of the ways to measure this comparison is from the inside lip of the muzzle to the top of the rib plus one/half of the bore.

    I have an MX15 which is not an ultra high rib, but it's up there. Using the above method I come up with 1.625 inches.

    It would interesting to compare this to other ultra high rib guns.

    I hope this helps.

    Big Don,
    I have other reasons for asking. Not concerned about looks.

    Thanks Goose, that's exactly what I'm looking for.

    My Caesar Guerini measures approx from the bottom of the bore to top of rib measures 2.75 inches, at the muzzle it measures 2.25 that is approx .500 slope.

    Hope this helps you, I just measured it.
