    I know the question has been asked several times in several places, but I can't find an answer. Does anyone know of a sunshade to fit the Vortex Viper Gen II 32mm? I'm waiting on a reply from Vortex in the USA, but I know a lot of you have these scopes, what do you use as a sunshade (if anything)?

    Cheers

    That's interesting, others have mentioned this, but there's no sunshade in the box now and according to the Vortex website, they don't make one. I'll see what they have to say.

    Who did you contact, Ady? I've tried to contact Vortex direct - twice - and they haven't even bothered to reply, which doesn't bode well for their 'VIP Guarantee'

    Try contacting optics warehouse, they stock them or if not can get one, they got me one for my early model when they didn’t come as standard and there was no charge either

    I got in touch with Country Sports Wholesale, the importers, and they replied within 10 minutes - the shade was out of stock in the UK, but they are getting some in from the USA and will send one ASAP. Very quick, very helpful, I'm quite impressed.

    In the meantime, a 100mm piece of 42mm carbon tube fits perfectly, so perfectly in fact that I probably wouldn't bother with the metal one if I had to pay extra for it.

    The sunshade arrived from Vortex via Country Sports Wholesale. It took three months and emails to the USA but it got here!

    First, thanks to Vortex and CSW, but I fail understand why a well respected maker of a comparatively expensive, highly regarded scope should suddenly, without warning, stop supplying the sunshade with the scope, especially as it is an unusual size that no one else seems to make. It is not even listed for retail sale.

    I'll be interested to see if they start putting them back in the box.
