Guys,

I have a tech support email in to Nikon, but I'm not sure how its gonna go, so....

I have an older generation Buckmasters 4.5x14x40 mildot.  No side focus, objective lens bell isn't rounded off like the newer models.  Claims 40mm.  I'd like to find a sunshade for it.  I happened across one on Amazon, where I like to go to read reviews, and one of the reviewers mentioned that the sunshade fits the 3x9x40, but not the 4.5x15....

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Don't know what to twll ya' been looking for one myself.  The newer ones don't fit (already tried).  Maybe Nikon has a stash of them, have you tried or heard from them?

You might get lucky by trying other brand sunshades, one might just fit. You could also go for one of those slip on type synthetic sunshades if you can't find a aluminum sunshade to fit. If there is a good machinist too in your area, you also could have one custom built for you, have it adonized to your preferred color and just paint the inside of the tube with non reflective matte paint.
