I'm looking for a sun shade for my z5 5-25x52mm but having a hard time finding them they don't list them on their web site. Is there other brands that people one here have used or know that will match the threads?

We have not found a single one that fits it. The 52mm is what makes it hard.

Wish they made a 2" sun shade for the 2.5-15x44 z6, that would be my next scope if they did.  Sad

Has anybody come up with a solutions for this? I cant seem to find any sunshades or scope covers/caps that will thread in. I called Swarovski, and they said the thread pitch was 75 x 54...im exactly sure what that means though. All/any help would be appreciated.

Do you have a buddy in a machine shop, you can have him make it and then have it cerakote or mil-spec anodized. I'll probably go that route if I get a new scope, want a shade but can't find one for it.

Oh my gosssssh.  I am deep in the weeds with this.  I'm actually working with a machine shop and Swarovski to get some of these made.  I am amassing data and ordering tube then driving an hour away to get this made.  If anyone is interested in one of these let me know.  It's going to be for the Z5 5x25x52 Swarovski (obviously).  I am waiting on a quote for hard coat anodization in black.

OK for those who care... a Leica 42mm sunshade perfectly fits Swarovski z5 and z6 scopes with 44mm bells. Just tried it. Big Smile


With that said, not sure if a Swaro 42mm sunshade will as well.
