With turrets for all the popular rimfire calibers. 22 hornet, 22 mag, 17 hmr and 17 hm2. The 22lr is on the scope now. More pics coming once I get home and get it mounted..

Made in China. (Right below the bar code.) Is the thread diameter marked on the objective bell or lens retaining ring? If not take the scope to a camera shop and have them measure it or match it to another lens or filter. Then just find a shade with that thread size.

I knew where it was made(isn't everything made in China now.....). At that price its obviously not an american or european product. Just trying to find if anyone knew a brand of sunshade that would fit( maybe Barska?, NC Star etc.) I tried the Leopold (all they had) while I was at Cabelas, no love. Id rather pay an online price than what our local camera shop will want!!!

Good tip on the camera shop, I'll try that when I get home. Maybe if they can tell me the thread i can cross reference something. Beats taping a paper tube to the objective bell.

That was the point I was making. They don't sell sunshades (for rifle scopes) but they should be able to tell you what diameter and thread pitch you need to buy the correct one. As you have discovered, shades are not a universal fit.

Latest incarnation of my 22 build. 3x9/40 scope mounted on high rise rings to clear the magpul rear. Worked on the trigger some more, better set of springs got it back down to ~3.25 by my scale. Accuracy has settled down to 0.5 moa with good quality CCI ammo. A batch that I rim thickness sorted shot two 10 shot 0.4" groups at 100 yd today!
