How common are they?  Was there more than one style?

Steve,

Winchester did not install (or offer) Ribs on any of the Model 1897 shotguns.  Any gun you might find with a Rib, it was installed aftermarket.  Undoubtedly, Simmons installed a few Vent Ribs on them over the years.

Thanks Bert.  I’ve seen very few ribs on M1897’s over the years.  Good to know they were all aftermarket.
