Does anyone have a picture of one of these mounted on a rifle? I saw one recently but cannot find the picture on the web and didnt pay much attention to it at the time. I recently found repro ones that look very nice. Where they correct for LSR snipers?

Here is an original cover one on my low turret.

Original leather covers for any WW2 era rifle are going to be hard to come by. I have seen a repro covers on ebay.

Thanks for the reply but the cover I am talking about actually covers the rear ladder sight of the rifle, not the scope covers. Its got buckles and straps and whatnot. let me see if I cant post a pic of the cover on here. Looking for a pic of the cover on a rifle.

Here is the auction
