This is really an “ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” situation. If you are picky about your rifles, these Sight Bags are cheap insurance against many “gouges”,” scratches” and “dents”, caused by the tang site coming into contact with the stock when folded down. They are also wonderful protection for front sights and the muzzle and protect the barrel’s crown when the rifle is being transported or stored.
The sacks are made from garment suede and can be cinched up with the cord lock. They are reasonably priced at $21.99 for a pair .
