Hello USMC Phrogs,

Are the caps alum or steel? Approx. cost for a set?

I have been told that the originals were steel & it was easy to cross thread them & ruin the very fine thread in the scope bell.
There was another active machinist making them out of alum. for that reason.

Personally would rather have a more original blued set, but my chances of
rushing to installing the caps at the range, could ruin a nice vintage scope..
