Scope clear protection caps/ kill flash?

Where are some sources to buy clear scope protection caps or kill flash caps? I can't find much on Amazon.
Thanks

Thanks but that is Amazon USA and they won't deliver those kill flashes to Canada. I think I will just make one.

Some people mentioned using Lexan for a DIY, but I can only find big sheets for $200 plus, but I can get a sheet of plexiglass for $30. Less restricted view than a kill flash.

I can cut a dozen 1.5 circles so I can replace them when they get scratched. Use UHMW tape, [thick plastic]to make a ring for the glass to sit in then slide it on to the scope. [I used it to make receiver rings on my VSR-10]

The other possibility would be to use 1.5 inch black PCV but it may be rigid to fit over the scope. The UHMW tape is more flexible. Maybe combine the two? Cut the 1.5 PVC only 1/4 inch long and mount the plexiglass in it then wrap the tape around it and extend the tape out so it will fit on the scope. Has anyone tried anything similar?

I just have to figure out the best way to cut a circular 1.5 inch pattern in the plexiglass without chipping. I have a 1.5 inch hole saw but don't know if it will work.

You can find lexan that is 0.50-0.75mm thickness, you can cut it with good scissors or tin snips... it’ll be plenty strong to withstand a bb hit

I cut some lexan disks (dont remember the size), "glued" them together using some 3:1 heat shrink directly to my scope.

I checked the local hardware store and could only find big sheets for $200 plus or plexiglass for $20. I also searched Amazon. Do you know any online source that sells smaller sheets of lexan?

Melting heat shrink. Thanks I did not think of that.

Thanks
I ended up buying a Butler clear scope cover from amazon for $8. Glass may shatter but hopefully protect the scope lens
