Scope shade?

Anyone know if there's a sunshade available or one that will fit a Weaver Tactical Rifle Scope 30mm Tube 2-10x 36mm 1/10 Mil Adjustments First Focal Illuminated EMDR Reticle Matte?

It may be a non-issue, but concerned about glare spoiling a coyote. I could get an anti-reflection device that will fit, but figure that would darken my view, so would prefer just the sunshade tube if I can find one that fits.

Not an easy task !!!

You should first go to Weaver and see if there is one available for this objective. You say that this is a 36MM? I wish that scope manufacturers would d a better job of making these available for thief scopes. You could also try one of the exclusive scope stores. I have a 50MM scope that to date, have not been able to pin down what sun-shade to buy. I have also seen them at GS's and when I ask the dealer what it fits, They don't know. ...

Good luck and;
Be Safe !!!

Yeah, I looked pretty hard and all I came up with was 42 and 50mm. Granted, it was via my phone, which isn't the most efficient search tool. I guess the next step is try a real computer and then perhaps call them.

Make your own. Lightweight tubing painted black will work. Paper roll tubes work fine and you can replace at near no cost.

Schwinn Tube

I've done something similar, using short sections of bicycle inner-tube. Worked pretty well and protected the bell. Made a mistake of taking it out to the range one time and the guys asked me if it was a Schwinn tube. ....
