The weather shroud is used on the Model 700ML (produced 1996-2004) when hunting in adverse weather conditions. It helps prevent moisture contamination of the powder charge which could result in a mis-fire. The weather shroud should be removed after each use and thoroughly cleaned. Always remember to clean the bolt assembly inside and out as shown in your owner's manual, after using the weather shroud.
NOTE: The older rubber Model 700 ML Weather Shroud Is Not Intended For Use With 209 Primers. We offer a new metal shroud for use with the 209 Primers.
