How would I find out? 

E-mail Highland outdoors, they are the UK agent for Nikko Stirling.

sales@highlandoutdoors.co.uk

Or contact Nikko direct, but I think it goes to highland outdoors anyway

I've brought a no name scope with me, the caps off that fit my simmons so I can measure that, just need the thread size for the Nikko and how long you need them.

They wont be as thin as original caps, but they'll cover up your turrets

Most likely be a specialist optical thread Mice - the OD of my thread is 23mm the ID of the cap is 22.5mm - going by the .25 thread depth I would guess that the pitch would be .5 but most likely require a specialist screw cutting tip with minimal radius.

Cheers bruno.

Strimmer,  how close to fitting were the simmons caps on the nikko? Did it feel like a different thread? Might be able to make them a slack fit and see if they go on?

**** just realised those were photos of the nikko, think chaz is sorting that out for me as he's posted some he said via pm. 

Bruno might remember the simmons, he gave it to me about 6 months ago 😂

This is the simmons 

I should be blonde

Well I should be able to knock some up this week for the simmons as I've got something to measure and compare 👍

 So these aren't my finest work, but I wanted to see if I could knock some covers up between jobs, if they fit and do the job I'll make some nicer ones, @strimmer_13 send me your address and I'll stick these in the post,  they'll cover up your turrets if nothing else.

The thread was something like M23x0.7/0.75 I had to use a 1mm insert as it's the smallest I could find, and definitely the first time I've used a scope as a gauge 😊 not something I'd want to do with an expensive scope.

White Nylon, it was left over from another job, and when he drops them he might see where they are🤣

Should have said, I used thread gauges to get the pitch, measured the Male and female threads i had then worked it in.

That's as old school as it gets, the young lads don't know how to measure a thread, or not many of them anyway 👍
