Hey fellow snipers,
I just wanted to demonstrate how you can make inexpensive scope protectors for scopes/red dots. This mod costs less than $10 and is completely reversible if you are not satisfied with the results. The material required includes:
-Clear Lexan (Comes in varying sizes: 1/16,1/8, etc)
-Black Hockey Tape
-Original Scope Cover (Optional)
Place the objective lens flat on top of the lexan. Then take your pen and trace the outer circumference of your scope.
Cut along the lines you traced with a pair of scissors. Then place the circle on the objective lens. If the lens does not fit, trim the circle with your scissors.
Peel only half of the roll of hockey tape.
Peel off the blue cover on the lexan lens and place on the objective lens. Then attach a strip of hockey tape to the scope and to the lexan. Make sure a thin strip of tape sits on top of the lexan.
Hopefully this tutorial will help save some $$$ and protect your expensive scope.
