Interesting, was not aware that the USMC(larger) sight cover would have the same drawing number as a standard sight cover. I guess you learn something new every day.

C64157-4 was for the standard cover. The USMC sight cover will not have that number on it.

Left original USMC and repro on the right. Both get the job done.

Here's a good picture of sight protectors in use in Marine boot camp. Credit to CplNorton who dug this photo out and posted it in another group a year or so back

I am curious as to why our Chinese manufacturing friends aren't making unmarked repros.

$190 for a 50 cent piece of cold rolled steel seems like a market opportunity--even with the tarrifs.
