Just curious when did k98's start haveing sight hoods put on them? Also when disassembling the k98 how were the barrel bands removed with the sight hood on or was there a tool to remove the sight hood? or did they just slide them down to the sight and just left loose there?

i don't know in what year the sight-hoods were introduced but my 1938 de-act doesn't have provisions for a hood, ie, the slot's at either side of the sight. when stripping your rifle, the sight hood can be removed with a pair of plier's or vice grips, i would recommend the later as not to harm one's self. :wink:
