Its the only thing my wife and I shoot. I do feel it helps me quite a bit. On the other hand one of the best shooters at my club just doesn't like them and his scores suffer. I really think it is personal preferencebut I do believe I see the target better and faster with the high rib.

My wife and myself both shoot high rib guns. You can see the target better and the guns look good also. Up to date.

I shoot a high rib gun but the rib is fixed it doesn't move. I see no advantage to the rib as far as seeing the target better.

An elderly gentelman who shot a Model 31. It looked like it around the world. After I asked to look at his gun and ask why he shot an older gun? He told me he could afford a 4,6, & 10 thosand gun. He told me if thats what you want go for it. He stated if you shoot it poorly at least you look good when you walk off the line.

I've shot Browning Plus guns for years..by todays standards its more like a mid rib and as high as I would want..tried a couple of different guns with higher ribs and didnt care for them at all...at some point the rib is so high you feel disconnected from the gun..I'm happy with what I have

In answer to your question,you're looking out the mid-portion of your eye with a high rib and upright head. The middle of your eye has far more acuity than the top of your eye when your head is down on a low rib.

It seems like the drop at the heel of the stock would have more effect on head position than rib height. Is this not true?

That's true only if you set the butt of the stock in your shoulder first when mounting and then drop your cheek onto the comb.I was taught to raise the comb into the cheek with head upright, then set the butt.

Its the 1st I ever heard that we have to now think about what part of the eye we have to use to shoot---
when the weather breakes I'll now go out and try to use the middle of my eye---
That will be fun---SJB---

I bought a K-80 not for the high rib but for the better balance and smoother trigger. Durability and resale value played a minor part in the decision. I don't have an agressive stance. I stand up straight and never scrunched my head and neck down on the comb. The Trap Special came natural to me. Eyes centered I quess is a bonus. Never knew about that until after I bought it. Also any dealers will send you a gun for a test drive. You'll need your credit card as a deposit. Dave T.
