    Scope Covers

    Hi there,

    looking for some scope lens flip caps, am using the butler creek ones but have just broken another yet again. don't want a neoprene cover or anything like a bikini so that's out of the question

    any ideas for something that's durable or is that a bit of a unicorn turd question?

    God only knows how many Butler Creek ones I've broken. I use neoprene covers now - why don't you like them Scoped?

    I use rings of car- truck inner tubes on most of my scopes. More durable and trouble free than anything you can buy.

    I also use the Neoprene covers from Gunworks. Great protection and doesn't take any more time to slip it off than opening a set of caps.

    I get Vortex ones from B&H Photo, cheap to buy, cheap to post, so far they are ok.
    Make sure you get the size smaller for the diameter needed as they can stretch easily...

    as stated in the original post, not after neoprene covers or bikini rubber things

    have emailed the aadmount place for sizes for my scope so be interesting to see what they can do. has anyone here used them? @Moutere

    the vortex covers are the same as the sightron standard ones, ie. crap

    I haven't used them sorry. I use Tenebraex covers instead.
    The AADMount always seem to review really well.

    So do you have to buy direct and they won't export or something?
