Butler Creek flip cover for 56mm NXS ??

Ive recently purchased the NXS 5-22 x 56 and cant find a front lense cover from Butler Creek. WHere can I get one and what No. is it ? The scope is 64.9 mm outside and the No. 11 is only 62 mm ??. I bought one with the scope but the wrong size was sent and does not fit . I prefer the all black one, not the blizzard see through version. Any clues ??

Cheers

    Thanks for the reply mate !!
    Just want to check you have one on the 56 mm version not the 50mm. I went on the Butler creek site and they list the no 11 as the biggest, and I know this will not fit ?? I cant see any no 51 anywhere ?

    Any clues ??

    Cheers

    It takes a #18 eye and a #51 obj. I'm 100% sure on that.

    My UM list shows that the #51 and #18 covers do ALL NXS scopes.

    I tried #17 and #18 for the eyepiece and prefer the fit of the #17. Pretty snug to put on but it stays in place nicely. Don't use a flipup on the front, usually leave the tube on and that keeps my greasy fingers off the glass.

    Thanks fellas !

    I have just ordered the 51 as a special order because they dont stock that size in Aust. Hopefully they will get it right this time.

    Thanks again !
