Clear plastic inserts for Swiss and Swedish Mauser diopter front sights?

Is there a market for clear plastic front sight inserts for Swiss and Swedish Mauser diopter front sights?

I know the diameters are different on the Swedish front sight and maybe do not have a threaded lock ring on some sights, and Swiss K31 front sights may also differ.

I recently made up some inserts for a friend with Swedish 96 target globe front sight and they turned out very nice (.468" dia. with .100" chamfered hole.

Any thoughts?

If interested send me you existing diopter diameter measured with a micrometer and or caliper, what type of capture method (spring/screw cap/other?) and rifle type, and front sight manufacturer to get an idea of what needs to be made to fit and I can make a few with apertures of .080"/.090".100"/.110"
