Butler creek flipup question

If I have a butler creek flip up cover on my objective..And the rubber is hitting the barrl...Am I causing any issues. I know the objective should not touch so am pretty sure the cover should not as well. I might have to try the new Leupold flip ups

Just take the cover off and grind a flat spot on the bottome of it where it contacts the bbl. I have done this on several guns. It is hardly noticable.

I would like to know if anyone is happy with the Leupold ones. I have yet to see them and the look like they might be noisy, and they are expensive, but they could prove worth the expense.

Re: Butler creek flipup question

Will the Leupold covers fit older scopes? Seems like I read they will only fit new models.

The Leupold Alumina Flip-Up covers will only fit the 2004 and newer model scopes. You can send in an older Leupold scope to the Leupold Custom Shop and have them retrofit the threads on your scope.
