    I'd like to find a front sight hood for an early Bofors L579. I've seen that the Custom Shop has hoods available. Anyone have any advice?


    Thanks.

    From what I have heard the hoods from our friend in Montana are not properly tempered. This results in them not being truly "spring" steel, so when they are spread to slide on the ramp they remain loose & are easily knocked off while hunting. This is based on what others have said, as I will not buy anything our friend in Montana has to offer.
