Kingslayer Dust Cover
« on: March 06, 2020, 08:16:04 PM »
I recently got a Kingslayer reflex sight for my birthday and been trying to figure a way to securely keep the dust cover on at times?

I figured going in the woods in the dark and covering areas that are thicker at times I'd like the option to have it on and not have to worry about it coming off. The cover itself does kind of snap on just a bit, but not secure enough to hold it through brush.

So all I could come up with was putting an automotive push clip through the cover and running a loop of elastic cord through it.  Then I have to loop it around the receiver and hook the loop end on the clip end. Kind of looks stupid, but the only thing I could come up with to hold it securely, and where it's easy to get on and off. Has anyone with a similar cover came up with any better ideas? They really need to make the cover tighter fitting, but I guess it's intention was just a dust cover and not designed to stay on through the woods?

have you used the cover while hunting, my thought was I would eventually lose it without securing it somehow?

Have the same concern. Was going to rig something similar that has a cord run under gun receiver and attaching to sides. I only use the cover when hiking in in the dark. It’s off during shooting hours. Have had the same trouble losing fast fire 3 covers over the years.

I normally take my covers off and leave them in my ash tray in the truck.

I have one on a Glock 10mm I hunt pigs with and I take it off before I leave the truck or else it will be gone!
I like the optic but wish the cover was better!

I take a rubber band and run it across the cover and the scope front and back and haven't lost it yet. Just remember to take it off when you set up on a bird lol.

I just got mine yesterday. Seems to be a nice sight. The only issue I have found is that it won't fit in the same guard as my Vortex and FF3. It's too wide.
