    Help with Vortex Spitfire scope

    Hi

    I have a family member who has lost his battery cover for his Vortex spitfire scope. I am wondering if there is anyone in Chch or nearby that could lend me one to measure and copy. We have tried to get one from Vortex but have had no luck even finding out if they can be found.

    I am about to try anther local stockist of Vortex for one as buying one would be easier, but I suspect if my brothers local stockist cannot get one from Vortex, then the one I am near will be about as successful.

    Specifically it is a Vortex Spitfire 3x prism scope spitfire EBR - 556b

    Thanks in advance for any assistance, even if it is simply pointing me to where I can get one.

    A mate lost the cap off his razor lh not long ago. He emailed vortex in the US and they sent him 2 new ones direct and in short time.

    Same here for a turret cover i squashed two turned up in the post 2 weeks later. Their lifetime warranty seems to be good and easy. 2 emails and it was done.

    There is a "Spanish Destroyer Carbine" that was issued to the Spanish Police, Prison system, and Civil Guard from the 1930's to 1960. You might be able to find one of them.

    Here's a link to pics of them.

    Do you have an email address we can try? We tried via their website and have had no response at all. TBH we have not even got a response that says "No".
