    Neoprene scope covers

    Looking for 2 or 3 covers, goes along the same idea as my optics cleaning thread! Have ha the bikini stretchy caps and seem to have lost them all.

    Got a leupold vx3 6.5-(something silly think 20) x 50 with big twiddle knows, Bushnell 4.5-14*40 and can't remember what my third one is so going to need a few different sizes.

    What have people got lying around before I go buy something new and if I do suggestions who to get them off? Will have to be an online purchase not going into a brick and mortar store

    Just a word of caution, don't trust the sizing that they say on the package.

    The medium says it will fit a 44mm objective, they lie!

    I have just done it and had to buy another as the first would not fit (and in my exuberance I had thrown away the packaging and receipt!)

    I'd suggest the bush buck ones.https://bushbuckoutdoors.com/collect...t-scope-covers
    Looks as though they're sold out but might be able to have a talk to them and see what's happening. As you can see they have quite a smart design

    Gunworks - best covers out there. More padding than most others and a great tab at the back to pull them off quicker

    Don't go for the Allens scope covers, I bought a few for some rifles. The large ones which I had planned to fit onto a 50mm scope barely fits a 3-9x40.
    I have spares now. :-(

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    those are the only bushbuck product that id say are actually shit.. i have heaps of their gear and everything else has been great. but those covers cost me a stag as they easily get jammed in the rear of the bolt, and i couldn't get the bolt open to load a round - stay away from those ones.
