If your favorite scope needs a sun-shade, and the manufacturer cannot supply you with one, maybe someone  in the after-market can..?  Anybody on the OT have a company in mind..?  Most all scopes will accept one..

If you look further down the link you will see rubber objective hoods.
I havent used those, but I will for sure try them.

Does SWFA sell them?

Barrel mirage tubes can be made from everything  thin wall PVC or graphite tube (if you can get It) just use the 4inch shade that comes with the scope as a support. In a pinch papercard board mailing tubes work well. The rubber eye pieces from Brownells work well and are about 1 1/2" long, I use one on my ACOG.

Hello Hot30

 

Been good. Got in stumbling last night,sorry for the distorted post.

Included in the Brownells link is a picture of the Dvorak soft shade,

I do not know of alluminum sun shades that fit "all scopes".

These work well. N-a-tc-h-e-z-s-s shooters supply also has them

I think a bit cheaper.

 

Hello Hakan

 

SWFA does not carry these products.

Soft-Eye improves your scope in many ways:
  • Protects the aiming eye from recoil. Collapsible bellows act as a soft cushion between the scope and your eye.
  • Speeds up target acquisition by quickly locating the aiming eye on the optics centerline with proper axial distance from the sight.
  • Relieves eyestrain and reduces distraction from the target by eliminating peripheral movement, light, and side wind.
  • Gives extra shooting time in low light conditions - sunrise and sunset.
  • As a dress-up accessory, it gives any rifle the ultimate "sniper look".
  Soft-Shade offers many advantages:
  • Will not transmit stress to scope if accidentally bumped
  • Reduces heat shimmer for improved accuracy.
  • Eliminates unwanted reflection from the optics.
  • Reduces sun glare for improved target definition.

Both accessories offer:

  • Instant readiness to shoot without caps to remove
  • Easy to install "slip-on" attachments
  • Made of strong, vulcanized, industrial grade, natural rubber which is very durable in all weather conditions.
  • Black color to minimize reflection.
  • Protect the optics from scratches and weather,
    help keep it clean from dust, rain and snow.
