    What's the advantage of the hooded design?

    Ok I give up, what is a "Hooded" Ljutic and how is it different than a non "Hooded?"

    if you look are the back of the receiver--the non hooded closes flat with the face of the receiver and the hooded one has --like it says--a small hooh that covers the top of the receiver on a machine indent. I do not know what the difference would be or what it does. motordoc

    I talked with Nadine about the barrel hood some years ago. She
    stated it added protection to the shooter in the event that the
    gun blew from a over-pressure load. The rim is encased in steel.
    Very similar in thought to the S&W recessed cylinders.

    Here is a picture (grabbed it off one of the threads) of a receiver that accepts a hooded barrel.

    It adds extra strength. They need it since Ljutic's blow up all the time. Just kidding on that last part.

    If a primer gets pierced it contains the possible blow back instead of blowing straight out between the receiver and barrel face. Still the best value in a used gun a brick s--t house of a gun.
