    Large neoprene scope cover?

    I have a Leopold MK4/LR-T scope on my Remington 700 5r. I've also added the sunshade which adds another 4 inches. I've purchased the XX-Large Leopold scope cover, but it doesn't fit (I can get it on, but it's stretched almost to the ripping point, and it doesn't cover the focus or elevation knobs).

    Total length of the scope with sunshade is 17 1/4 inches. I've been unable to find a neoprene cover that is that large. What are my options? Any one know of a place that makes custom neoprene scope covers?

    Thanks,
    Battle Beaver

    What's the total length of your scope? The specs in the link above say the max size they have goes over a 15" scope, mine is just over 17 inches.

    Lenght is 17 inches. The neoprene stretches further to cap the eyepiece.

    Check out scope shield. Just ordered 3 off amazon to fit a 16-20" scope. Already have a couple of them for 10-13" scopes...best cover I have ever used...just make sure to order the correct size for your scope

    Wow, you resurrected an old thread.

    I ended up with the "ScopeGuard" from eBay, pretty much identical to the "ScopeShield" brand. Fit my big Leopold Mark4 LR/T perfectly.

    Neoprene is not that hard to work with,easily glued and/or sewn.Places that work with neoprene would be drysuit/wetsuit manufacture or a place making sea kayak accessories is your best bet for material.You want regular neoprene not the crushed neoprene.It is available in a variety of thicknesses and colours.Use your old cover as a pattern and add material where needed.

    Sorry for the crappy photo i will address this with my web guy tomorrow.
    These will fit your scope and DO cover the turrets and loading port of the rifle.

    Thanks! Didn't see any specs that mentioned max length of the scope (again, mine is 17 and 1/4 inches). I even checked the manufacturer site, and no mention of length there either.

    Thanks,

    We carry a number of different sizes, but 17" I know we have as they fit the big NF scopes with sunshades on them.
