SIGCK244 is the part number. You can get one on eBay now for about $15 (shipping included).

Thanks guys for the part no. Just checked the link for Sig and they want $9 for shipping so I guess I'll check out eBay unless anyone has one sitting around collecting dust, or another brand that will work. DG

I messed up mine and went to the LHS and he had a basket full of canopies. I picked one, cut it down to fit and used it. It doesn't have the distince bubble top look but I like a more sleek anyways.

Thanks for the post, I like the stream lined look of your new canopy, may check out my LHS and see what he has in stock for other planes. DG

The Phoenix Dolphin is an almost exact knockoff of the Four Star .40, and Tower has the canopy available for $7.49 with $4.99 for parts express shipping:

I just rebuilt my Four Star 40, and I picked up a generic Sig 12" bubble canopy from the LHS. It just took a little trimming and it fit pretty well.

Edit - I checked my canopy part number, it was Sig CS015


Good Luck
