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.
