Homemade Lens Protector

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)

Step 1:

Place the objective lens flat on top of the lexan. Then take your pen and trace the outer circumference of your scope.

Step 2:

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.

Step 3:

Peel only half of the roll of hockey tape.

Step 4:

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.

Geli out!
