Nikon 42mm Sunshade

by D, from United States, TX Written on December 23, 2014
Evening range time here faces the sun in winter. This sunshade threads in quickly, takes care of the objective blooming problem on Nikon's M-308. Be careful unscrewing this sunshade, so as to not unscrew objective lens with it and losing your nitrogen purge!...
Pros:
  • Functionality
Cons:
  • Pricey
Best Used for:
  • Direct sun
Would recommend: Yes

No direct sun glare!

by Charles, from United States, AR Written on December 22, 2014
Many times before having this sunshade, I could not see through my scope if I looked somewhat toward the sun because of glare. I ordered this sunshade hoping it would reduce some of the glare. It exceeded my hopes. I try to never look through a scope or binoculars directly at the sun, but to test the sunshade, I looked through the scope almost directly at the sun and there was absolutely no glare. I had a clear view. The length of the sun shade on the end of the scope makes the scope look unusually long, but it is worth it to remove the glare....
Pros:
  • No glare.
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • Hunting early and late when deer are active.

Good product. Pricey. Long wait.

by ctw, from United States, KY Written on December 22, 2014
I had noticed mild flaring through my M223 3X12. Two other brands of 42mm sunshades were incompatible. It took 3 months (back order which is chronic for this item) to receive it, but fit & finish are Nikon quality. If you want one by Spring, order now. Worth the wait....

Worked on an older Monarch

by merbeau, from United States, TX Written on October 29, 2014
I purchased an older Nikon A0 Monarch 6.5x20x44 mm scope in 1999 and at that point in time ordered extra turrets but not the sunshade. This shade fit my scope and really does help with glare. It is mounted on a Browning Safari in 243 caliber with 22 inch barrel. Between the scope and sunshade the barrel looks even shorter....

Great sunshade for Nikon scopes!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on June 6, 2013
I finally had the opportunity to use the sunshade with my Nikon Monarch scope. If you are shooting into the sun, this sunshade is a must to reduce glare and image bleedout.
Pros: Easy to attach & great glare protection
Cons: large to carry separately...

Nikon Monarch SunShade

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on February 26, 2013
Overall it's a great sunshade. Fitment and finish are both excellent. The only thing that I don't like is that the Nikon logo and other writing on the sunshade is in a bright white color. I wish it would be less noticeable.
Pros: Excellent quality and fitment
Cons: Bright White Lettering ...

Godsend!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 3, 2013
Scheels Paragon scope came with no shade. Tried a friend's shade from his Nikon on my scope. It fit! Major problem solved! Smaller OD than scope, but who cares? I got a shade. That's all that matters...
Pros: Fits Scheels Paragon Hunter 3-12X x 42mm scope
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes
