Re: Best scope cover for ATACR?

Curious what makes them worth $100?

Re: Best scope cover for ATACR?

to give you an idea what the aadmount covers look like , I did some modeling for Jon . these are for a NXS 50mm .








this is a NXS 56 . the 56 cap was not available at this time , but will be . the 50 and 56 have the same size eye piece .

Re: Best scope cover for ATACR?

C_Bass - thanks for the data!! Thats exactly the type of product I was looking for. Basically a beefier Butler Creek design.

Jim - thanks for the pics.

I noticed in the "hide" thread that there were a number of folks already requesting covers for the ATACR - I'll call and find out today if he's got them.

Re: Best scope cover for ATACR?

Sorry more info, they dont look a $100 beefy. I dont run caps 95% of the time because they cost you shots.But I like scope protected in rig or extreme. I have destroyed most hiking in alders,so usually just use a screw in cap for bad snow.I also dont always have clearance as many for a over thescope type.

Re: Best scope cover for ATACR?

These are well designed caps.

I guess value is determined by customers wants/needs.

Much better design than BC.

The last pic is the factory caps that come with mk 4's, for comparison.

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm really interested in purchasing products that

have that little stamp on them, in the second pic.

Something about American ingenuity I'm willing to pay a premium for, vs. made in china....YMMV

I don't see any difference between them & Butler Creeks.
But look at the stamp on an Alumina, and consider that these are not plastic copies of someone else's product:

Alumina® flip-back lens covers feature powerful neodymium magnets to hold them securely closed and triple O-ring seals for maximum protection from the elements. Their machined-aluminum precision construction, quick and easy operation, and a low-profile position when open make our flip-back lens covers stand above the rest. The round objective models are clockable, so you can rotate them to open any direction. Available in a variety of sizes for both eyepieces and objectives.
