Re: Best scope cover for ATACR?

I agree that the Aluminas are a great scope cover - but they won't work on a NF! Aadmount appears to work on any scope you have/request.

Re: Best scope cover for ATACR?

I know what you mean, I had several NXS scopes with BC(older) covers myself.
Down to one remaining. I think Butler Creek has gone downhill. Maybe Aadmount is better, and expensive or not I would look into them for scopes other than Leupold.

Functional flip-up covers in the field are like power windows & locks in my truck.
Now that I've had them, I Just can't be happy without them.

NF NXS sucks for flip-ups because their eyepiece turns with power changes.
So with that, and weight, and adjustment in actual MOA increments, I've shifted to MK4 scopes + Alumina covers.
Couldn't be happier with this move.

Re: Best scope cover for ATACR?

The AADMOUNT caps have a LIFETIME REPLACEMENT WARRANTY and they are made in the USA. What more could you possibly ask for?

If you don't think they are durable enough, by looking at a picture...then don't get them.
If you want to test them and are not happy, return them. Jon will back up EVERYTHING he sells. 100%

Another option for the Nightforce, and it's what I would have suggested prior to the AADMOUNT is the Tenebraex covers, but they are always sold out.

You'll need ONE OF THESE for a flip up objective cover.
and either, an ARD or a threaded addapter for a 56mm NXS so that it fits.

And for the eye piece, you'll need this one

They are also VERY durable, I believe it's what Premier Heritage uses on their tactical line.

So between the two, you'd still choose the aadmount?

Leopold must have a pretty solid patent on these covers. It doesn't look like it would be hard to make a set of copy-cats for the nightforce.

Re: Best scope cover for ATACR?

It still just puzzles me how NOT ONE other scope manufacturer makes a quality cover for their scopes. I have checked S&B, March, IOR and Steiner - and NONE of them make a scope cover that is the same quality or better than the Alumina that Leupold is making. If I didn't have another 7 years left with the Army, I'm pretty sure I know a small business that I would be starting!

I won't say that, because like I said in my first post...I haven't gotten my hands on the AADMOUNT set yet. But I have run other stuff from Jon Aadland and if he is willing to make them, and willing to put his name on them, and is willing to offer a claim like this....
I'll trust it, and support an American manufacturer.

I HAVE handled the Tenebraex covers and they are pretty darn awesome, but availability makes them a huge turn off. I have no doubt you would love them. Find someone with a Premier and ask them what they think.
