Scope Sun Shades


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Many scopes come with them now. Vortex is one that includes them with some scopes and I think some Burris scopes include them as well...

Prices on these things go anywhere from $12 for a Mueller to $50+ for a Leupold or Zeiss.. I'd like to get a few more, but refuse to pay the ridiculous prices for a short piece of threaded aluminum. I'm thinking $15-20 is a more realistic price range.

I cannot find the pitch or thread size anywhere for available scopes.

Does anybody out there have a cross reference chart for what ( or whose) sunshades will fit what scopes?

I believe but not positive that scope threads are the same as camera threads for filters and such. They only go by diameter in millimeters, the thread pitches are the same.

In the 1950's my Dad made them by rolling black construction paper into cylinders and taping them on. They handle the wind well.

Speaking of camera filters, Have you ever tried to find a camera filter that would screw onto a scope? When I was into film cameras, a UV filter was on all my lenses just to protect the lens.. It would seem that would be a really goods idea for a rifle scope..
