scope lense shade/extension

#1 Postby saum2 » Mon Dec 10, 2018 8:55 pm

to those that are in the know, are there any other brands of extension tubes that fit a 56mm Sightron scope? or does it need to be sightron specific? Looking for an extension/sunshade and lense caps for a 56 Sightron scope.

I had a fruitless search a few years back. I ended up contacting Sightron in the US who told me I'd need to source one over here. When i pointed out that there werent any over here so they would need to send one over here so i could source it, they came to the party and sent 2 to Herron whe sent one to me.
The only other option i came up with was to get camera lens adaptors to get the thread to a size of a shade that is available. But i never got that far.
You could try Herron but generally they won't supply individuals, only businesses. They weren't real happy being told to supply mine.
