Hi Somebloke, do you make night vision stuff and do you have a shop or website I could look at. I have purchased a warden adder from Clive ward in kent but I have a job contacting him for any help. That is why I was told to join this forum, not been able to use it yet as I don't have any shims to fit it to my scope, is there any on here that makes shims the ocular on my scope is 39mm on a vx 6-20x50 Leupold and thanks for the welcome. :thumbup:

Welcome to the forum, and here's your first bit of advice:
Specially made shims are not necessary - a few wraps of insulating tape does the job just as well.

Cheers

No shop or website sorry - just the for sale section of this forum.

I've been very surprised about how the 'new thang' leaves buyers to use vinyl tape instead of plastic shims TBH. It works Jim but not as we know it comes to mind lol. As an aside - masking tape is more stable in my experience.

I did have shims made to fit my own DSA's - but in the same volumes as the adaptors - so I don't supply them loose - sorry.

I understand Clive makes shims for his WDV - so he might be up for supplying them as standard or extras at some point. This forum is a good place to get a response from him so be patient.
