    Butler Creeks for Zeiss

    Hi gents,

    I've purchased a Zeiss conquest 3.5-10x50 and would like to buy a set of butler creek flip ups.
    What "#"'s do I need for it? I've gotten varying answers from trawling the net.

    Also, who is best to buy from that will post to ROI?

    Thanks.

    hi elmer
    I have had 3 butler creek front covers this year the quality seems to have dropped
    the hinge connecting cover with spring is to weak and snaps last one lasted 10 days.
    If any one can suggest a better make that would be good to know, in the meantime I
    will be going back to the car inner tube cut out to shape secured with fishing line.

    eye = number 20
    objective= number 43
    your OD for the eye should be 45mm
    your OD for the objective 58.8mm

    The size you need for the conquest is 19 eye and 39 objective.
    I know this as I have a few conquest scopes with them.
    Most dealers should post them to you but if you cant get them drop me a PM and I will give you the number of a ROI dealer that should have them.

    Elmer, if your scope has the Locutec technology the covers are surplus to requirements. If not, a simple bikini cover would do it just fine. I had the butler creek on my other two scopes but they are not as quiet as you would like them to be...

    I think Butler Creeks are a little over rated IMO. I took them off my scopes.

    Suggest you read the on going comments re Butler creeks on the site. Appears that current BC are of very dubious quality and are on most stalkers most hated list.

    I fitted Bushwackers to my Meopta and seem fine.

    I didn't take mine off, they all broke off in a very short time, and I'm not hard on equipment. IMO they are not fit for purpose.
