I am looking to get into some quality scope covers. Have been a butler creek fan but break too often. Aadland are 100 bucks but quality. I prefer quality over broken caps once a year with B/C. Let me know your thoughts or alternatives


You should give some serious thought to thanking your lucky stars your from Texas.

Tenebrex on my Night Force have been solid. I too have broken many Butler Creek caps and will never spend another dime on them.

I break BC caps now and then, but I'll stick with them because I have about 16 different scopes. I can only break one at a time and don't want to shell out $1600 to put expensive caps on.

Butler Creeks used to be great, but now have the durability of a potato chip.

I have tried both Tenebrex and Aadland on my Nightforces.

Both are great products, but I prefer the Aadland covers between the two.

RR,

I bought one set of Aadland for each size of scope, i.e. x42 and x56, plus one set for my wife's rifle, and just move them to the scope/rifle in use at the time.

I use my covers to protect the glass from gathering dust when NOT in use. They sit in a safe, but dust knows no boundaries in North Texas, In fact, I sometimes remove them entirely while the rifle is in use.

the Aadland caps are very good and hold up.
I love their AR scope mount as well.
