Need Sunshade for Nikon Monarch 50mm

Need a good sunshade to fit my Nikon Monarch 4-16x 50mm scope.
Am I limited to a proprietary (Nikon) sunshade or will another brand fit?

Mike

Hey "Tide"!

Thanks I found one at OpticsPlanet for less than $40 incl. shipping.
I was kind of hoping to find something for half that price...
And after contacting some scope distributors they are telling me nothing else will fit.

Also not sure what length would be best. The other day I was in a blind looking directly at the setting sun and decided to do something about the glare.

Hey I am an ND grad. Your team took us to the woodshed!

Yeah, Sabin is known for holding back and not running up the scoreboard, but on that game, he didn't seem to show much restraint in that aspect.

Yeah, I was hoping for a bit tougher of a game, honestly, but we all have our on and off days....Just look what happened to us and A&M....

Anyway, a 4" is about standard length for a sunshade. Some use longer, but IMO it can cause you to not have enough light to come in, or it can obstruct the sides of your FOV through the scope. So, IMO, 4" will be ok.
