    Anyone have one with a factory front sight? Can you take a photo of what's under the sight hood? Cheers

    Thanks, do you have a sight hood? I have a front and peep sight, trying to work out which way around the front sight blade goes

    The back end of the blade is normally flat and the front slightly curved towards the back. If you are putting one back on then you drive it right to left when looking at the action end of the rifle and make sure that you use a brass drift or punch to do it. Also use a padded vice to hold the barrel firmly.

    Cheers, was wondering whether it was a tapered dovetail and didn't want to stuff it

    Don't suppose you have a spare sight hood lying around?

    Hang on for 5. Sorry but no, I only have one for my BAR and one for the Winchester. For some reason Kiwis are really good at taking them off and then loosing them
