I inherited a very nice Williams Guide Line 3x9 variable scope in excellent condition, but missing the top turret cap. These scopes were made in Japan and distributed by Williams Gun Sight co back in the 1970s and early 80s. They are top notch optics, and were cost equivalents of Leupold at the time. I'd love to be able to keep this scope in the field, but really need to protect it from the elements with a cover that fits properly. I talked to Williams, but they have no parts remaining. I've tried a variety of current caps (Leupold, Simmons, Bushnell, S&B,) that I had access to, but no matches so far.
 
If anyone has a junker Williams scope, or some spare Williams caps, or knows of any possible sources for a cap, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

Why dont you go to a machine shop and see if they can measure the thread and build you one if it is worth to you what it would cost.

I might pursue the crafting of a replacement if it turns out that an existing cap is unavailable. Just thought I'd see if I could come up with one first off.
