I was having trouble adding the photos so I put links to the photos instead.
This is a simple way to make pretty good looking scopes for your 1/6 snipers. All you need is an exacto knife, any glue that will work with plastic, a standard papermate pen (Mechanical is looks best) and the "skeleton" that holds all those pieces for plastic models.

Step 1: Take out the plastic tip of a Papermate Mechanical Pen.

Step 2: Cut off the long tubular part that slides into the pen.


Nowyou have 2 parts; the cone shaped tip and a cylinder shaped piece.

Step 3: Take that plastic Skeleton

piece and cut out part of it so that you have a piece about 1/4 inch long, I recommend cutting a section with a number tab in the middle (this will make mounting easier)
Step 4: Take the tip and slide the top (the smallest part) onto one side of the plastic piece you just cut in Step 3. You may have to take a piece of sand paper and sand down that plastic piece so the pen tip will fit.
Step 5: Repeat step 4 with the cylinder piece of the pen, I recommend putting cut over the plastic.

Now paint it, attach it to your warriors gun, and enjoy. Its simple but looks really good in the end. https://www.onesixthwarriors.com/photo/showphoto.php?photo=15787&password=&sort=1&cat=500&page=1
