Am I missing something? I was expecting these to go for around $40. This one shot up rather quckly. Are not all hoods created equal?

I'm starting to rethink trying to get a hood for my swede. :doh:

I picked one up at the gun show yesterday for $18. He had 6 of them.
Had a notion to buy them all at that price.

This blows my mind,I paid about the same amount for an M-96 FSR pistol grip not too long ago. Even with shipping from Sweden it was less than that I have to start looking at my spare parts box.everyone has one.may be able to retire,,,,.This is the average front sight hood,not the shorter sniper version??.Larry pps pretty sure I have a pair of Adolf Hitlers under wear in that box,,any takers? has the initials AH on the inside band next to the Fruit of the Loom label.......
