Does the SWFA SS HD 5-20 have an Anti Reflection device which fits?

They don't seem to sell one.

Also, have the generally fallen out of favor for some reason? I see lots of people with 100mph tape and a hole cut in so they can pretend to be real scout snipers, and many people with 40ft long sunshades, but hardly any ARDs these days.

In my experience, an ARD slightly increases contract (like a sunshade) and prevents glare, so it seems unusual I can buy one for the SWFA SS 10x42 classic, but not the modern scope...

I thought I'd heard somewhere that one was in the works from SWFA.  You could call them and ask them directly.
 
I'd buy one myself if one ever comes to market.
 
You'd think that with all the time and effort it takes to get a scope from idea to full production, that getting an ARD made would be easy?  But what do I know.
 
I agree with you, they would sell.

Check out SunGuard which is made by Tenebraex. I don't have the size needed off the top of my head but once you see the offerings, you should be able to size it for the 5-20x50. Good Luck!

Call SWFA and ask them. If all else fails improvise one from a lens cap and an existing ARD.
