    My new UGB shoots 80-20. It appears to be designed to accept an after market higher rib. Has anyone heard about such a rib being produced by Beretta as yet.
    Also what steps can I take to bring the POI down. The recoil pad adjust up and down ? Would that help ? Would changing the DX Spacer work?
    Are different spacers available ???

    Still curious about the new rib. I think someone talked about that feature when they first came out.

    Bryn, when you say it shoots 80-20 what do you mean? And how do you know? The one I shot at the Grand as a demo shot nothing like that.

    there is no xtra rib at this time- lowering the comb will help(1/8"=4" change at 30yds)- lowering the butt plate is only for head alignment.

    just for the heck of it- take a 1/4" peice of wood cut the width of your rib- paint it flat black maybe make it 4" long?- w/ dbl back tape stick it to your rib right behind the front bead-see if this makes the gun shoot lower- and it will!!

    The one that I shot was flatter than Hell, no matter what we did to it.

    Mine shoots atleast a foot higher than my other gun or regular targets .
    I have the comb down as far as it will go and it doesn't much matter what other people have found with other guns of the same make. Since I posted this message I sent a message to Keensights. That maybe the answer.

    Have you shot it at paper off a rest? Up fairly close?

    Was the gun new when you got it? In other words, does the barrel look straight?

    Look at in a positive way, it still shoots, most of them don't

    I have shot it on paper and it just shoots high.
    I shot it today and every one I missed , I would have crushed with my other gun.
    Its very difficult to shoot two guns , if they both hit in different places.

    If you point of aim is a rising target, why would you want any of your pellets to miss for sure?

    Off it while you still can. There are way too many other guns out there that are sooooo much better. Even Beretta make a few.
