    WTB: Single Alumina scope cap (eyepiece)

    Hi, while hunting the Alumina scope cap on the eyepiece jumped off my scope. So now I'm in need of only an eyepiece cap because I still have the objective cap.
    Hoping someone has a spare eyepiece cap they are willing to part with so I don't have to buy a new pair
    This is for a Leupold scope.
    Thanks!

    I lost one the first time I hunted with them.
    Got single replacement through my local H&F.
    Put a small amount of Locktite on them all after that, so no more problems since.
    Wrecked both the Alumina caps on one of my scopes in a 100m fall 3 months ago in South Westland. They flew open on impact and got twisted during the tumble as sling snapped. Had no trouble getting them off even with the locktite ... just don't put to much on though !!!!!

    Are you removing the rubber eye protector from the scope before installing the alumina cap ?

    Thanks, I'll have a look there but I'm guessing they'll empty my back pocket..

    I think @KiwiGreg had some a while ago. He may just have more

    I can get them from the importer, probably cheaper than importing at the moment with the dollar being so "average"

    Flick me an email terminatorproducts@xtra.co.nz
