I recently purchased a 336w at academy, i was wondering if i could have a fiber optic front with the hood.
I found a website (Wide Scan Sight Hood ? Blued Cutaway « Marlinsighthoods.com) that sells hoods with the top cut away where sun can hit the fiber optic front. Does anyone know a front sight that can
be used with a hood sight?
Why do you want a sight hood to use with a fiber optic sight? The original purpose of the hood was to eliminate the side glare off a gold bead sight which would cause your point of aim to change depending upon lighting conditions. If you simply want the rifle to look cool with a sight hood, continue your search. Otherwise, you're searching for an oxymoron.

The hood would protect the semi-fragile fiber optic front sight.

:dito: Yep the unprotected fragile front fiber optic sights do have a tendency to get broken some how.:flute:
