I needed the gun to balance at the hinge pin so I added approx 3/4 pound of weight to the stock, I wrapped it in leather and installed 2 cut off wad bases
to tighten it up and hold it in place.

It now balances perfectly and is now a killer gun in buddies.

StansCustoms: Here are the pictures of the modified Browning XT I think Browning should off er different ribs with the modifications I made to meet tne needs of more shooters. You cannot tell what I did to the comb as the long 12-24 screws and 10-24 nuts cannot be seen, Had to do this to get the comb up high enough to see over the rib, It would have been nice it the stock was a Monte-Carlo. Just look at how much I cut off the bottom of the rib at the front sight position. It will still shoot higher as the rib is not all the way up in the center holding position.

I'm pretty sure they'll let you do the West Virginia State Shoot for free with a gun like that :p

I don't want any freebies, just a gun that shoots where I want it to shoot, this proves the cheap guns shoot as good as the high priced guns.

That full choke Kick's Extended Ported tube works great.

I put CMD Grease all over the tube and threads to keep gasses from fouling the threads.

The gun has a .741 Bore and a .035 restriction full tube for a .706 opening.

It also has a Thurman Gobel release trigger completeing the job.

I am loving that rib.... Dr. Longshot, on the subject of cheap guns shooting good a while back some of us guys showed up at distant club with our P and K guns to show everyone how to really break some clay birds. There was an old man on a bench smoking a cigarette and had with him a ratty looking BT99. He sent us all home with our tails between our legs....

beware of the guy with the model 12 with no rib. They can also be really tough. or even the guy with the model 97 that are scarce. think that is a joke. they can send you packin also. motordoc

StansCustoms it is the factory rib, I am raising it today just to see how high it will shoot.

Last night I shot well from the line with it from the 27 but lost a couple of shootoffs.

I will start on it in the next tem minutes, have to find or buy some more spacers.

I believe you are shooting as high as it will shoot by the way you have the rib adjusted all the way down. If you raise the rib the barrel goes down and so does your shot pattern. maybe I am wrong?

UNKNOWN your posting ID Suits you, where did I post George Goble? You need better reading comprehension, re-read my post until you get it right.

DEADON4 has it right, I am down all the way in the front and just raised the rear of the rib about 3/18ths of an inch and had to raise the comb the same anount
to get my sight picture back.

I now have the rib at Maximum shooting height and I got my sight picture back
with the shims under the comb.

I guess I need to take a closer look at my XT...I don't remember it having a rib that looked like that.

Is that on select models or something...?

Thanks...STan
