Who's got them and likes them, or not?


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

I have them and like them so far. Only had them on one rifle for a little over a year, so cannot comment on durability. However, they fit and function well.

Got a set today, so far I like them for fit and how they operate. $40.00, not much of a gamble.

Had a set on my gen 1 razor before I sold it. They were pretty solid.

Love them. The dope sheet built into the rear cap is handy too.

I was a huge fan of these, but the last 2 I have purchased have not worked well, failed to close solidly. I had them on a monocular I wear on my neck and the lens cap keeps opening.

I opened them up in the store and fit them on a demo scope. The front objective cap worked great, the eye piece cover did not, it was difficult to open. Seeing how well the front worked, I thought the eye piece cap I had was just a dud, so I opened up another and boom, perfect.

Got them, put them on my Leupold VX6 3-18 x 50mm. Loved them, fit well and opened/closed really well. I made a dope card that I printed off on standard paper and attached with scotch tape. It was difficult to open. Hmmmm, looked close and one corner of the Scotch tape was in the cavity of the closure. Clipped it off, back to normal operation. In the field, if I ever have trouble with these opening or closing I'll be looking there for dirt or anything else small enough to find its way in. Double Naught, maybe some dirt, or something else?
