I am looking for a sunshade for a Swarovski Z6i 3-18x50 SR BT. I am told the Swarovski does not make them any more. I frequently hunt in the rain and need about 2 additional inches of coverage. Any ideas?

Did you ever find a sunshade?
I have the same scope and need one too. I have fitted a front Butler Creek cover, but sunlight can still fall directly onto the objective and spoil the optical quality.
BTW, the sunshade for the older model PV 4-16x50 does not fit.

For rainy days your better off not using a sun shade and just using butler creeks, etc. If you hunting in very sunny areas like we do then you'd be better served with a sun shade. 

My z6 sun shade comes off in extreme low light and rain situations.
