Does anyone really see a need for these if a rifle is cased when not in use? Do they protect the sights that much and from drift or damage?

If one uses a hooded NM aperture, I most strongly recommend using one of the plastic rear sight covers to protect the hood at ALL times when you are not shooting the rifle.

ALSO and this is highly important that some folks do not think about. When you get done shooting with a Hooded aperture, RUN the elevation pinion all the way back down while counting your clicks and write down the number of clicks you used. Then LEAVE it down until the next time you shoot. If you leave the Hooded aperture up and turn the rifle upside down on a bench, you can snap the hood right off the aperture.

I use both a rear sight cover and barrel/front sight cover when I store or move my
rifle. I picked them up from Fulton.

They're probably not critical but I want to do what I can to protect the sights.
