Spotting Scope Lens Cap
« on: January 10, 2019, 08:53:13 PM »
Anyone know of a quality aftermarket lens cap for a 65mm spotter?

Lost mine somewhere in the Entiat.

Iím posting this here because I thought maybe there would be some folks using caps on their cameras which might also work.

Thanks,

Al

I know you said aftermarket but it is only $26.95 for a nice one.

Swarovski Optik Replacement Push-on Objective Cap for the 65mm ATS, STS, ATS HD & STS HD Series Spotting Scopes.

When I pass, do not let my wife sell the guns for what I told her they cost.

I probably should have specified, this is for a Cabelaís Krotos 65mm.

Do the swaros fit other brands?

65mm should be 65mm just like finding an aftermarket 65mm for a camera.

The B & H in Lakewood, use to have a box of "caps" that were loose, you could look through and buy.

The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.
