Rifle stock cover and scope caps

Recommended Posts

Here in the Pacific northwest I needed something to cover my scope lenses and cover the riser block for my cheek.

Fiebings dye, the one they allow in California. I just use SNO seal as a final finish on my projects. Hiked a few hours in the rain and my lenses were perfectly dry and clear

So what. Dye is allowed in California, is it pro dye or the NON-pro dye. And who is making such odd decisions for free citizens???????

Are you saying that they would use this to get high? I’m seriously trying to find out what they use in California vs every other state.

The problem is the VOC level. This is limited by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

Due to VOC regulations in the state of California this item cannot be shipped to a California address.

Please do not add it to your shopping cart if you have a California shipping address – the order will not be fulfilled.

Fiebing's Pro dye is a definite no no. For the Leather Dye, some online vendors will sell it, others will not.

There is a similar problem with the Fiebing's Antique Paste. Some vendors will sell it, others will not.

Yep that's right. Tried to get Angelus dyes and paint... They can't ship to a California address. Their factory is in Los Angeles. We also can't get certain species of skins/hides, the only state to require copper bullets for hunting, and can't get most of the firearms people can get in every other state. Try buying a vehicle in another state and bringing it to California for a real good time.

It's a low-voc formulation. Works ok. Uniformed voters vote in politicians that turn the screws.

Wow, you are right! I used to buy Angelus dye until they stopped selling it in pints. Just checked and they no longer ship to California.

Very nice! Is it saddle stitched or machine? Can you show the caps more? I've looking at doing some for myself. I only saddle stitch.

 Thanks again

I only saddle stitch at this point, as well. When I get back home I'll post some better pictures of the caps for you. Then you can see the mistakes haha.

There are no mistakes in leather working. just added character for a more rustic look.

@DaveP here is a close up of one of the caps. I used 2 pieces of 2-3oz. For the tubular section.

That's awesome, thanks for posting these.  I just got a M84 scope for my M1D Garand, and I was thinking of making a scope cover for it.  Good Job, it looks great!
