Flip-Up Rifle Scope Lens Covers Recommendations?
« on: June 13, 2021, 03:53:11 PM »
I have an older Hawke 30 sidewinder that has the screw-on lens cap covers, and the Hawke flip-ups for this scope are no longer available. 

I want to get flip-up cap covers for it, to use for HFT.  I've been looking on Amazon but most of the flip-ups seem to have problems fitting or the rubber splitting. 

Any recommendations for decent covers at a good price?

Measure the OD of both ends.  I have had GREAT luck with the Vortex line of covers.  Others like Butler Creek-never used them myself.
Does Hawke make any?  Contact them and ask their recommendations... 8)

After measuring your could also check out Leapers UTG.

I've been really happy with the monstrum covers from amazon.  I have bought 6 covers so far and they've all been great.

All these will work. I got mine the next day with Amazon prime, and so far so good. Some come with the red piece instead of yellow ,idk what's the difference. https://www.amazon.com/Butler-Creek-21920-Multiflex-Flip-Open/dp/B00162JHJG
