Anti-Reflection Devices:

Everyone: Get this. Leupold came out with a new ARD (like the Tenabraex KillFlash.) The literature says, and I quote: "The ScopeSmith Anti-Reflection Device (ARD) snaps into 40mm fixed objective scopes that are non-threaded."

But, here's the good part. I sent an email to Leupold and got the reply "The ARD will not fit the LR 3.5-10"!!! Am I the only one that finds this mind-boggling? Not that I'm in love with ARDs, mind you, but it seems rather perplexing... Maybe it was the 12 hours I spent driving this weekend...

Premier Reticles told me the Tenebraex ARD can be used with the scope alone, while the similar Butler Creek honeycomb filter must be used with their scope covers. I don't see any reason, however, why either wouldn't work on the Leupold LR M3 scope???

Bach: The Tenebraex ARDs are screw-in, and the LR M3 is unthreaded, so that probably won't work. The Butler Creek Sunshields should work though. By the way, I've expanded the early version of that article I sent you, going into a lot more detail about the Sunshield. Will have it ready when I get my film back and the pictures scanned in, etc. Will email you when it's ready.
