I'm curious what's the consensus of vent ribs on doubles?

For a field gun, not so much.
For a Skeet gun, I kinda like it.

So Bob, after the last post, can we ask Dave for a "Do not like" button to push. I would vote for such a button with so many pushes of that button to eliminate a poster for a certain number of days. It would also work for Ed.

I really like the high vent rib on a Beretta 626; it shoots where I am looking.

I think vent ribs are unnecessary unless they are on a target gun where directing heat to each side is really useful. I have never shot a gun so much as to find that necessary but I don't live in a hot climate or shoot that many rounds all at once. Some guns look good with them, like that 21. I have two SXSs with raised ribs and on the twenty gauge, looking down the rib, or down at it, you could easily think you were shooting an over-under, but then you're not supposed to do that.

I don't like vent ribs stepped up and high. The 21 and Parker are a little high, but not so much to be objectionable. I think 26" 12 gauge vent ribs look out of proportion, but I shoot my 26" vent rib PHE Parker very well. However, it looks better with the 30" barrels. My 32" vent rib Model 21s look like shotguns should look.

I actually prefer vent rib, single trigger, semi beaver forend, and pistol grip on a SxS.
heresy to most here probably LOL, to me the 21 is the perfect SxS.
I just can't look down a swamped rib, just doesn't look right.
I owned a Winchester 23 and foolishly sold it.

This is another prime example, Fox, of your off-topic, anecdotal posts that contribute nothing to the subject matter. We all know you're a good guy and have stories to tell, but at least consider the subject matter and whether these asides you post say anything worth hearing. Thanks.

To the topic, I like vent ribs on sxs's if they are aesthetically pleasing. I give you a good example (I love this gun):

Duly noted.
I was trying to convey, in my ham-handed response, that since all the repeaters I own and shoot have raised ventilated or solid ribs, I cannot imagine shooting a plain barreled shotgun. I keep forgetting that this is NOT a Model 12 oriented forum. Mea Culpa. RWTF

well eight, here is an even better idea...provide the originator of a thread editing control...where at the discretion of the originator, he could delete posts like yours above and this one as well, as being off topic...

So basically no SxS's and no Vent Ribs.

You are right.
I’m home picking ferns and bits of detritus out from under a ventilated rib right now.
I never really thought about how much crud collects in between the barrels or under a ventilated rib before.

Definitely a good reason for a swamped rib in the woods.

As a personal aside, I have shot vent ribs in the field under a lot of different circumstances and have never noticed any issue with twigs, or trash of any kind, getting hung under a vent rib. For me that is more an imagined issue than a real one. YMMV.
Ever been ruffed grouse hunting with a vent ribbed gun? Didn’t think so, but…… Thanks for alleging that I ‘imagined’ debris under a vent rib. Mr ‘Know it all, Stanley’.

Buzz my friend, I was not intentionally alleging anything concerning you. I made it clear that it was my experiences only, when I ended with YMMV (your mileage may vary). Of course I don't get to hunt grouse down here. But, we do hunt woodcock in the thickest mess I can imagine, wading through switch cane and vines so thick you can't see the ground. The OP asked for our opinions. That was/is mine, and it has no more value or import than anyone else's. Don't be so touchy. It was not meant that way. I said "For ME, that is more an imagined issue than a real one".

This isn't worth us arguing over.
