    I have given up on butler creeks as well. Choice is either buy something more expensive like the Swarovski covers or as I have done just cable tied the rubber bikini covers to the scope.

    I've a pal that you can't give tea in a china cup to.

    He's a lovely chap, wouldn't harm a fly and can rebuild the most intricate and complex machinery with a finesse bordering on an art form, but hand him a cup o'tea in yer finest bone china and he WILL snap the handle off it with mystic reliability... similarly he rocks back in dining room chairs and wrecks the frames (if they are anything less than "baronial" in style and preferable of oaken construction) and... if you hand him your latest mounted trophy it'll be in bits as quick as blink... shield in one hand and head in the other.

    Think... "Obelix" from Asterix the Gaul.

    And my point is... Some people just break stuff. They don't even mean to do it. It just seems to happen. I reckon there's nothing wrong with butler creeks but there do seem to be a lot of people out there who just can't avoid breaking them. A bit like my abovementioned pal.

    Swarovski Scope flip up covers, about 60 but worth it.

    I break very little, but these things seem to last about 20 minutes out with me.

    I remember when the BC scope caps first came out in the UK, and they were good, but I feel in recent years the quality has declined substantially. My first ones lasted for years in tough environments, but now I'd be surprised if the things lasted a season.

    Come on Butler Creek!!! … Get your act together!!!

    Regards,

    I've five scoped rifles and they've all got Butler Creeks on them. Obj & Eye. I think the oldest set is 14 or 15 years old and the newest is about 18months old. I shoot (or at least head afield) between two and six times a week. Over the years I've lost one precisely one objective cover, that's all. I've never broken any of them... ever. S'all am sayin'.
