WTB M96/M38 Swedish Mauser front sight hood

Post by Hunsta » 31 Aug 2018, 8:48 am

Gday all. Just wondering if anyone has any info on where in Australia I may be able to purchase a front sight hood ( or 2 if the price is right) for an M96 or M38 Swedish Mauser.
There plenty to be had in the US. But getting one sent is nigh impossible. And Ive tried a few gun shows with no luck.
Anyone got a spare or two they wanna part with?
Cheers
Craig

Mate, I bought one of eBay from a mob called “ liberty tree” in the USA. Wasn’t cheap, about $40 including post, but I had no problem

Not the cheapest option , but one of the few American sites that will post international. I usually wait till I need a few bits and pieces to spread the cost of postage out.

Ok thanks for that. Thats actually a Liberty Tree pic. I'll give em a try. But was told the US had some law about exporting gun parts. And we had one about importing.

only certain things come under the US and australian laws. magazines, trigger ( aussie feds trying to stop semi auto to auto conversions ),actions ,bolts and barrels you cant or have trouble importing. i think.? i bought a front sight hood and taller front sight blade for my m96 ( taller front blade gets filed down until your m96 that has a 300 zero shoots spot on at 100 ), and i had no problems at all. :thumbsup:
