Rubber eye cups for Audubon MkII (1 Viewer)

Not Sure.
I found another Swift Audubon 8.5x44 MkII in pretty good condition for a ridiculously cheap price, but they are missing the rubber eye cups. Anyone have a source for them, or am I out of luck? They will be fine without them, but it would be nice to find some.

I see some generic ones on that big online retailer, but I don't know if they would work.

The rubber units stretch or you can use something to take up the space if need be.

Got them today. All I need is the eye cups and a strap. I have a generic case they fit into quite well. They are nice and clean, and the glass is perfect. I love it when people think "it's just an old pair of binoculars." Not bad for twenty bucks, and ten bucks for the eye pieces I ordered.

Cycle innertube makes good rubber eyecups very soft comfortable and they can be cut to any size you like.

Got the cups today. They went on pretty tight. I was worried that they were too small. But I like how the soft rubber fits my eye sockets. A nice fit that keep extraneous light out extremely well.
