stockdale, Ruger SBH Hunter models have a solid rib ... primarily used to mount a scope. Other than aftermarket Polychoke vent ribs, I've never seen a factory vent rib on a Ruger.

I do think that Ruger did try some with vented ribs as I think "Polychoke" made them in an add on kit? My old memory..... I have seen Blackhawks with vent ribs. Possibly someone with more info can add to this? Dave

bwinters will become famous soon enough
Welcome from NJ. In the late 1970s and early 1980s there were several companies making after market top ribs for Ruger security sixes. It would have been easy to adapt to a blackhawk. I thought about doing it myself but never got around to it.

I wonder what it would cost to get a SBHH rib vented ? I thought of it before and I think it would look cool and lighten it up a bit as well.

Saw a pic of two last week when I posted my single actions on a thread in AR15.com; thought they were very interesting. Poly Choke still makes the ventilated ribs. Here is the link to Poly Choke and the thread on AR15.
