Hi All, I'm looking for some info on scope caps for the EP-5. I got the combo pack but, honestly, the scope caps in the combo cap suck (imo). I really want to add the Tenebraex flip caps but they screw in (which is awesome) and I'm not sure if they will fit the sun shade for the EP-5. These flip caps are sold scope specific but I'm hoping somebody has tried them on the EP-5. The ones that came with the combo pack are in the garbage. It looks like the sun shade is threaded but I'm not sure. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Scott

Hi All, I added a multicam black scope chap (they have a variety of colors) to my EP-5. I really like it - the looks and the fact it helps protect the scope. Scope Chaps is a veteran owned company and is at scopechaps.com. No, I don't work for them. I just really like their product! You can get them for with or without the sun shade. Mine is with the sun shade.

Hi All, I finally got my EP-5 in - glass is insanely clear! But, unfortunately, I cannot use my Arisaka Optic Leveler with the Rigid Precision Mount. I have the Arisaka kit and it has served me really well for many years. There just isn't enough height between the mount and the bottom of the scope to use even the smaller wedge. Not complaining, just disappointed and really more of a heads up for those of you that are still waiting for your scope to come in. I am more than likely to go with a different mount in the near future. Got the scope mounted on my AR in .308 and can't wait to zero! Cheers!

Hi guys and gals. I will be mounting an EP5 (if/when it comes...lol) with the Arken Rigid Precision scope mount. Two questions on mounting: Should I loctite the mount? If so, I am thinking purple loctite. The EP5 will be dedicated to my LR308 so no worries about moving it back and forth between rifles. I've always purple loctited the scope rings. Any thoughts on this? #2A, Scott
