Not always! I have a very heads up look with a standard rib on the 525 shotgun. Its all about gun fit. A adj. butt plate will give any shooter a more heads up view and level the shooters eye's!!! Which is a must for shooting a moving target.Lets you get your head more upright.
Skeet ? Are you nuts ?Not always! I have a very heads up look with a standard rib on the 525 shotgun. Its all about gun fit. A adj. butt plate will give any shooter a more heads up view and level the shooters eye's!!! Which is a must for shooting a moving target.
The primary advantage to a high rib shotgun----Allows the shooter to see around the barrel better. The barrel is lowered and allows for better vision around it. Of course many Sporting Clay shooters have found it is not always a advantage for fast falling targets. Since its harder for your brain to see the barrel on a falling target. It now only sees the rib, which is smaller and less noticeable in your peripheral vision!!! Because the barrel is missing from view!!!
The only other advantage I know of, could be having a adj. rib on the high rib shotgun! As most high rib shotguns come with a adjustable rib. Most low rib shotguns have fixed rib, and POI.
So a high rib shotgun would be more of a advantage in skeet and trap for the average Joe. It may or may not be much of a advantage in Sporting Clays. This would depend on the shooter? Of course this is a general answer. What works best for you could be different. Too know for sure, you have to go out and buy one to find out!!! Good Luck on your Journey!!! Don't forget to break em all jeff
Love Pistachio too...High Rib on skeet? ....I shoot nothing but High Ribs on Trap...maybe that is the only gun they have
to match their TuTus or skirts
The two of you are making the assumption that a high rib has a steep angle, and therefor, a High POI, which only benefits a shooter on a rising target.I just can’t imagine shooting skeet with one but I guess some folks could. I have a hard enough time as it is without having to adjust to a high rib.
ChiefWell sir, I thought a high rib gun would give me a more heads up which it did. Now setting it up for 50/50 for me did not defeat the purpose which was a more heads up position. To say that a high rib gun is a benefit to everyone to make them a better shooter, well perhaps so but not for me. Nothing is absolute in shooting. What works for me probably wouldn’t work for you and vice versa. I’m not arguing your point at all, just pointing out that nothing is concrete regarding shooting. We are all different. BTW I’m a fair shot with my low rib Guns. I spent a ton of money to get it right but I did it and I’m happy.
