Thread: Following on from Butler Creek Thread

    Following on from Butler Creek Thread

    I broke my last Butler Creek flip up cover yesterday. Never spending my hard earned on cheap plastic crap like that again.

    Instead, I've dug out the old bikini scope covers that came with the scope and have put them back on. I've also tied a length of string around the scope and the rubber strings of the bikini covers. I now have a scope covers that won't break and will remove just as easily as the butler creeks and won't get lost either.

    Alternatively, you could use a rubber band to hold them in place.

    They are called Bushwacker and they are not much better and the size range is limited.

    I have a bikini cover with transparent panels on, only have to remove it if shooting in very low light, otherwise just stays on when raising the gun and look through both bikini and scope.

    In the last month I've broken 3 BC's so I'm not buying any more!

    I see that Hawke make some similar to the BC's but with transparent cover in clear or Amber.

    Anybody have experience with those?
