    One of your first considerations should be how much weight will be a factor. Ron

    I prefer the aluminum Keen Sights ribs. The ribs are durable and they can make just about anything you could desire. Mine are big and weigh about 8 ounces. Ron

    I am going with Add-A-RIB as well. I have seen their product I have used their product. It is well manufactured, looks nice and they will answer any questions you have!http://www.addarib.com/

    There are no light weight magnetic rib as they would have to have steel in them and would be way heavy.

    I made my own in my mill for my Rat Rod gun

    But ADD-A-RIB has nice anodize finish and they will install beads for you as well if you request.http://www.addarib.com/

    I had my 3200 in at Simmons. A few years ago they made the 34" un single for my 3200 and it started to seperate from the mono block. They did not warranty their work and charged me 375 to repair. Now that is not all. I have an add on rib on top. They had to remove it to re blue. When they put it back on they did not appear to use new double sided tape they used the old stuff. Well that does not work well as after 50 rounds at a shoot Sunday that add on rib fell off. That put a slight bend in it. I don't know what they will do but I expect not a thing.Simmons is not what it use to be.

    Moneymaker has built me numerous ribs over the years with great results. Highly recommend Jay and his crew.
