Simmons Ribs


Simmons Ventilated Rib

“Point Faster….Shoot Better! This slogan has long been attached to the Simmons Ventilated Rib. It was hard earned, not dreamed up. Shooters, hunters and gun experts can attest to the vast improvements they have found shooting with the Simmons Ventilated Rib.

The Simmons Heritage

By 1947, Ernie “Pop” Simmons had succeeded where so many had failed…he successfully developed an all-around superior ventilated rib. The original Simmons Ventilated Rib was designed over 65 years ago to improve accuracy and handling. To this day, the Simmons Ventilated Rib remains the hallmark of the industry. The Simmons Ventilated Rib gives you much more to shoot with.

Dissipates Heat Waves

As your barrel heats from shooting, heat waves occur. These heat waves can obscure your vision. The Simmons Ventilated Rib quickly dissipates these waves to give you a clear line of sight.

Straight Sighting Plane

The Simmons Ventilated Rib flattens out your sighting plane to help you quickly pick up your target.

Floating Rib action

The rib supports are dovetailed on top so that the Simmons Ventilated Rib is anchored to your barrel…allowing the rib to remain intact as the barrel expands and contracts.

Extra Strength Silver soldered posts

Simmons puts added strength into their ribs. The rib supports are silver soldered (brazed) onto the barrel.This process is ten times stronger than soft solder, plus the Simmons Ventilated Rib accepts blueing more evenly.

Eliminated Glare

Sandblasting the top surface of the receiver eliminates glare and improves the appearance of you gun.This service is standard on the model 12 Winchester, however there is an extra charge on other models as we must reblue the receiver after sandblasting.

Simmons Olympic Ventilated rib

New Higher Rib

As your barrel heats from shooting, heat waves occur. These heat waves can obscure your vision. The Simmons Ventilated Rib quickly dissipates these waves to give you a clear line of sight. Since the rib is higher than the standard Simmons Ventilated Rib, dissipation takes place faster.

Straight Sighting Plane

The Simmons Olympic Ventilated Rib flattens out your sighting plane to help you quickly pick up your target. As the rib is higher, your peripheral vision increases to pick up the target faster.

No bending of the barrel

Simmons adjusts the height of the rib instead of bending your barrel to achieve the correct point of impact at 30 to 40 yards. You simply indicate your desired point of impact.
