Best scope cover for ATACR?

What are you using for scope covers on your 56mm scopes? In the past, I have used the Butler Creek flip ups, but over the last couple of years the quality seems to have really declined on them. If possible, I'd like to find something like the Leuplold aluminum flip ups, but I don't see anything that will work on a NF scope. Any suggestions?

    I use the rubber bikini that comes with them. If I want I can put a nylon tie wrap od black tape them to the tube to keep them while shooting. But I usually just toss them aside. Probably not much help but I prefer it over a cheep plastic flip up.

    As far as I know, there is nothing out there better than, or even like, Alumina Flip-ups.
    They are nice.

    Will these work on NF scopes (specifially the ATACR)? It looks like they are threaded on the ends and would have to be screwed in...is that correct? If those will work on any scope, then I agree, and would order some today.

    No, recent Leupold scopes are threaded for them. And Leupold will thread their earlier scopes for them.
    I have three Mk4s with them(one sent to custom shop for threading).

    It's unfortunate that other scope makers don't seem to care about field practical covers.
    I think you're out of luck, and Butler Creek is best choice for you.

    I was hoping to find something besides the butler creeks also. NOTE NF!!!! Make a set of aluminium flip ups real nice front and rear and charge us accordingly.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
    (I wish these were milled billet, but then you'd be looking at probably 250 +)
    I've got a set of these coming from Jon at Aadland Engineering and hope to give them a full video review real soon...but if you wanna snag some now, I see no reason why these aren't the crème de la crème. Right now, he only has them listed for the F1 on his site...but he has a thread on SnipersHide where he is requesting objective sizes...so just email him and ask. Looks like he either has done or will be doing one for the ATACR
