    I've noticed a lot of 'upper end' rifles sporting Nikko-Stirling 10-50x60's, so it can't be a bad scope. Does anybody make sunshades for these monster scopes?

    Also try camera shops. I eventually hauled out my camera kit - lenses adapters etc.. All my stuff is 49mm and 55mm - pity - got some funky shades and filters that would look lekker bling bling on my scope. lol

    Never thought of camera stuff.
    Now if I could fit the Nikon 100-300mm or the Sigma 400mm on top of the Nikko I'll have an awesome scope ...
    Could also add a softspot or N/D filter ...

    You would need an SLR camera, one that you view thru whatever lense you have on the camera - then just focus through the scope. My camera's got a motor zoom and it confuses it no end - so I switch to manual.
    Big problem comes in with trying to line the scope, camera, target and then still focus before it flies away. lol

    I did see that the yanks have built a scope that takes so many frames per second and saves it into a memory to be downloaded to a pc later on. It was expensive - that much I remember.

    I actually just wanted to add a poloriser to my scope - to kill off all natural reflections (non metallic) - but alas I think I need 52mm filters.

    How does a sunshade work? Does it srew into the objective lens?

    Will I be able to get one for my BSA AR3-12X44
    What will these cost? Just need a short one about 2" or if it does not obstruct the loading port on my Gamo the lenght does not matter?

    Can you buy those flip up dust covers for the above mentioned scope? Would really like those instead of the srew caps that comes with the scope.
