A sunshade will improve the performance of whatever quality scope you use.

As the light in your scope is less than the surrounding light, by blocking out this light your eye will adjust to make maximum use of the light in your scope.

To find a compatible sun shade for your scope, it's best to start by
measuring the diameter of your scopes front (objective) end.

The measurements are approximate, normally rounded up to the nearest millimetre.

Please contact us if you want to check a measurement.

Reduces distractions from lamps, wind, dust and rain.

Still allows for the fitting of lens caps.

Matte black finished aluminium.

A new range designed to fit the majority of threaded objective lens telescopic scopes.

Significantly improves your view by reducing lens glare caused by direct light, reflections and heat shimmers.

As there are so many different scopes produced by many factories we can not guarantee they will fit your scope, but can offer a full refund if it wasn't to fit and then returned with the packaging.

Extra info;

All models are currently extendable.
The extendable models are threaded on the front, so can be extended if needed,
or fitted with a killflash or end thread protector.

  • ALPHA ~ fits most threaded 40mm objective lens scopes.
  • BETA STD ~ 0.5mm less diameter than the BETA EXT.
  • BETA EXT ~ fits most threaded 50mm objective lens scopes.
  • GAMMA ~ fits some 4-16x50 FFP scopes.
  • DELTA ~ fits Vector Optics Warrior 6-24x50 AOE scopes (SOLD OUT).
  • EPSILON ~ fits some x56 FFP scopes (SOLD OUT).
  • ETA ~ nothing specific.
  • THETA ~ nothing specific.
  • IOTA ~ similar fit the the ALPHA.
  • KAPPA ~ similar fit to the EPSILON, fits BSA Essential 6-24x50mm (SOLD OUT).
  • ZETA ~ fits most 60mm ZOS scopes (SOLD OUT).

Also available similar diameter sunshades with built-in honeycomb killflash.

Size matches;

The Alpha fits the A model killflash and accepts our 47mm flip-up cover.
The Beta Ext fits the B model killflash.
The Gamma has slightly different threads so only half fits the C model killflash.
The Delta fits the D model killflash.
The Epsilon fits the E model killflash.

All this may change from batch to batch so please feel free to ask first.

Some reports back from our customers;

Very limited success in matching/fitting these sunshades or the killflashes to Hawke scopes.

The Alpha fits;
Kahles 6x42mm.
Nikko Stirling Gameking 4-16x44mm rifle scope.
Nikko Stirling Game King 4-10x44mm scopes.
Nikko Stirling 4.4-14x50.
Also Bushell 3-9x40 scopes.
The Alpha do not fit;
Nikko Stirling 4-10x44mm scopes or Schmidt and Bender 10x42 PMII.

Bushnell Elite.
Hawke Eclipse 4-16x50ao.
Simmons 3-9x50mm.
Hawke Sidewinder 4-16x50 (the thread is a tiny bit tight but it does fit).
It will also fit the MTC Genesis 5-20x50 if reversed (as Genesis has a male thread on the object lens).
The Beta Ext fits SMK 3-9x50mm scopes but the threads are not quite long enough and so there is a 1.5mm gap left. The end of the sun shade's threads do not seem to match the end caps threads.
The Beta Extendable do not fit;
Bushnell Elite Tactical Mil Spec 25x50mm.
Bushnell 6500 Elite Tactical 4.5x30-50mm.
The Beta Standard and Extendable fit;
??? Schmidt and Bender 3-12x50mm scopes and MTC Viper 4-16x50mm ~ Needs confirming if STD or EXT or both.

??? Nikko Stirling 3-9x50A0 scopes ~ Needs confirming as not known if STD or EXT or both.

ZOS 60mm ~ Lowen made in China.
Nikko Stirling Game King 4-16x50 (last report says it doesn't fit???).
Nikko Stirling Panamax 4.5-14x50 AO IR.
Can be made to fit Zeiss Terra 3x4-12x50mm but will take a lot of work filing then gluing.

Nikko Stirling Diamond 10-50x60.

Schmidt and Bender 5-25x56 PMII and the 3-27x56 pm ii.
Will fit Schmidt & Bender 8x56 Hungarian but the overall body diameters are out by 1mm or so.
