Scope covers...?

I recently recieved my burris XTR 4-16x50 I am now searching for lense covers , desireing flip ups but......... Ok I searched out butler creek only to find out the dont make one that will fit the 50 mm sunshade(2.726 dia.) any more.
What are the other reputable brands are there ???? I cant go around with a 1000$ scope with no covers....Thanks in advance !!!
Guess I could list all the info for scope.
Objective is 1.663 or a #16 @ butler creek
Ocular is 2.726 dia. or a # 54 (discontinued)

Again all help is much appreciated Thanks!!!

Re: Scope covers...?

hey Lonewolf, where did you come up with that dimension 2.726
It should be 2.278 which is the OD of the sunshade on my Burris Black Diamond which uses the same sunshade that the XTR uses #626033
I bought the butler creek see thru blizzard #10 item #70210
Got it from Midway

Re: Scope covers...?

I do stand corrected my fignars are disxelic lol.... I went with butler creek.
I used flexible collar 16,17,18 for the eyepiece
and 43&44 OBJ (2.301-2.360) They went on plenty tight.....
My only issue will be focuseing with the cover on...............The cover is a tight fit making it a bit of a challenge to adjust the focus....Hopefully once the focus is set it wont be changed alot....

Thanks for all the help guys!!!!!!Ill get some pics of the finished profject up soon.
