I did searches but did not find much !
 
My 6500 I got today came with a sunshade............I could not figure out what it does......I took it on and off in bright daylight and saw no difference. Just seems to add weight and bulk to the gun.
 
What are they good for ??

protect the end of the scope
cut out stray or oblique light rays as found in early morning or late evening shooting.
make excellent hangers for longer mirage tubes.
look cool

They help to reduce the amount of reflection also. Good for hunting when looking into the suns general direction where there could be a warning flash to alert the animal.
