Thread: Leupold Alumina Flip-Up Scope Covers

    Leupold Alumina Flip-Up Scope Covers

    Has anyone used these covers, and are they worth the expense? they look hard wearing compared to butler creeks! but that said, anything would.

    i use them on my leupold the one i have is the one with an inverted half moon in the lower half of the front glass [so the scope can be mounted closer to the barrel]
    so it was my only option to get one of these [ie shape]
    they were a bit pricy ,but there are well made and mine flips right back ontop of the scope ,so its out the way and carnt get knocked
    there is 2 buttons on the inside of the cover to place it on and off the scope
    hope this helps

    Do you know what nemesis means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent, personified in this case by a 'orrible c@#t, me.

    I have broken six objective Butler Creeks when they pop open in the slip.... Can these stay shut in a rifle slip?

    I got eye and objective alumina on my louy. I wish I'd brought them first instead of half a dozen butler creeks. They are silent, fit exactly, comlipment the look of th scope, good magnets but a little more than BC but much better product. There is a picture on my gallery of my rifle scope and covers.

    The new Butler Creeks are a crap. Broke mine on first outing. Would rather have give money to H the H !

    Hi Steyer,
    Is the rear on yours stuck on with tape or am i looking at the wrong one?

    They are a well made bit of kit. I had bought the eye piece 1 a couple of weeks ago but sent it back as my rubber eye piece would not unscrew and I was worried I would damage my scope. I contacted leupold and they wanted me to send my scope to them and they would sort it out for me. I sent mine back and got an accu cover, it looks better the butler crap things. I will though when time allows get another and get leupold to sort it.
