A few of my scopes came with flip up lens covers and others didn’t. I think butler creek makes some but not sure if other brands are out there or what are the best ones. I want to order flip up covers for all my scopes. I want ones which seal fairly well and don’t pop open on their own. I ride around a lot in my UTV with my rifle and uncovered the scope gets so dusty it is almost unusable. Which brand should I get?

How are these things sized? By scope model or outside diameter or ? I have noticed scopes of different brands have different exterior dimensions even if they are both 3x9x40 or whatever.

Thanks. Ordered a set of the Tenebraex. The look nice on their webpage but they sure are proud of them.

Once you break about eight set of Butler Creek caps, you paid for Tenebraex.

Except the Tenebraex won't break.

Buy once, cry once.

Agree on the Butler Creeks. It’s like something has changed in their process. Whenever I break one, the first thing I notice is that it’s not one that I have had for decades. It’s usually one on my newer rifles. I should note that the only “cover” I broke this year was a colored lense flip up on my streamlight so it isn’t just the Butler Creeks. May be that manufacturers are more concerned about profit margins than satisfied customers these days. Maybe Tennebrax realizes happy customers equate to downstream profit margins.

Aadamount and MK Machine also make very good covers


Are you going to pull those pistols, or whistle Dixie?
