    Does anybody sell threaded lens caps to fit Sightron scopes? Mine came with a scope-coat but it wont fit on because I have the scope real close to the barrel. Really like the threaded caps that others use and I hate the flip-up type.

    Try B&H photo, you can look them up on the internet. I bought these for my March HM scopes, it takes a 58MM for the front and a 37MM for the rear.
    I am not sure but I think all scopes should be threaded for a .75MM pitch thread. My Nightforces are .75MM pitch as are the March's.

    If you would like a threaded Objective Lens Cap for the Sightron SIII 8-32 X 56
    B & H Photo sells Metal Caps for camera Lenses that will fit. The Sensei 62mm Screw-In Metal Lens Cap fit the 56 MM Objective.

    I'm also looking for a Lens Cap that will fit the Sightron SIII 10-50 x 60
    I will be checking on the next size up from the Sensei 62 MM to see if that will fit the 60MM objective.

    Which one of these is for the objective end of the Sightron 10 x 50 x 60 ? Is there one that fits the eye piece As well? Thanks

    They all fit the objective on the Sightron 10-50x60's. Just different styles.

    I'm not sure on the eye piece. I have a couple different sizes ready order (37-40 mm) to see if any snap-on ones fit. If anyone knows it will save me the headache/cost of trial and error like the objective ones?

    oht,

    Did you thread that Sensei 62mm threaded lens cap onto the Sightron SIII 10-50x60 objective lens.
    I tried one on my 10-50x60 and it didn't seem like it threaded on/off properly(loose wobbly fit-didn't thread up tight)? When I screwed it onto the 8-32x56 it threaded right on - an excellent fit.

    Just checked the four scopes I have. Two of each objective size. The thread fit (Sensei LCM-62) seems pretty much the same on all scopes. The 10-50x60's are a little more difficult because the OD is larger. Pretty good sample as an old and new (zero stop) in each objective size. I personally like the cheap snap-on caps a little better functionally, but threaded metal caps looks cooler.

    I don't think the eye piece on these scopes is threaded. Just a lip for the rubber bumper thingy.
