I am getting a Bushnell 4200 6-24x50 but I don't like the size of the sunshade... too long IMO. Is there anywhere I can buy a shorter sunshade for it?
 
Also, I'll be getting Burris Signature Zee's rings for it and I need to know what height I would need for the previously mentioned scope and also where I can find 1" inserts that will fit those rings.
 
all replies are appreciated

I think you need the high rings for a 50mm objective.
It also looks as though the sun shade that comes with it may be your only choice. You could chuck it up in a lathe and do a nice clean job. I would try it out as is, first. It might be most effective the way it comes.

Good luck

Don't they already come with the inserts?

Oh, I was looking at 30mm rings and then buying inserts. I didn't know that the 1" rings were just 30mm's with inserts. Thanks for clearing that up

I'm not saying that. I "thought" they all came with inserts, irregardless of ring size.
I guess you should call SWFA and ask them before you buy.

That's news to me, also. I didn't know they had 1" inserts for 30mm rings.
