Scope caps

Recommended Posts

Anybody else lose scope/turret caps like loose change? Recently all I've had done or done myself is lose caps. Any ideas what I could use to replace them or where I can get more? I was thinking maybe the scope manufacturers or ebay.

If it's a Hawke scope, contact them and they will replace them free.

Thats about the only make I'm not running atm. Used to only have hawke sport hds. Going to get a vantage soon. 

It's a Nikko mountmaster (and a Simmons), which my mate lost when he borrowed so I nicked the Simmons to put on the nikko and they didn't fit and got misplaced straight away. So technically only half my fault 😅

Thirty years ago I lost some Leopoldo caps when zeroing. No problem getting replacements, but the price made sure I didn’t do it again!

I couldn't find any either, I searched for - elasticated scope lens cover - one piece scope lens cover - scope lens cover.

I did see a few advertised but they were £6 - £29.99 plus p+p

Any chance of a link to the seller

The caps fit my nikko Strimmer, but they don't have the same depth will they still be of use to you?

Yea tbh if your not using them. I could put a o ring below, just helps when chucking the gun about 👍

😅 No I take them off straight away tbh. It's the turret caps I keep losing when I check zero 

Get a metal detector,  by the sounds of things there's loads on the floor where you shoot.

Can think of 4 within 20mtr 😳

Surprisingly never lost them off the decent scopes I've had, just these cheap things I've had on airguns.

Did have some rubber grommits my mate gave me from covering electrical summat or other in helicopters, but found them a bit tight.

Can you find out what thread and size they are?? If you can I'll knock you up some spares at work

hello, the Nikko scopes are imported by Highland Outdoors i cannot find the importer on Simmons but the USA company send any for repair to the Bushnell co USA so the Bushnell scope turret caps might be same, as for thread sizes i have search and cannot find, optics warehouse.co.uk might help
