Thanks for that , it seems a 14 and 43 is the Butler creek size but I can't seem to buy them . The vortex site shows a differnt size system confusing the whole issue . I have a friend in Elpaso so if I can't get them here I will get him to buy them in the US and post them on.

Re: Which Scope covers for Vortex Viper

I just took both my Vortex PST scoped rifles to the local gun shop and had them fit both. Interestingly, the 4-16 took one size and the 6-24 was another. The smith told me he's seen alot that don't fit. Mine fit tightly.

I suspect that if they fit loosely, a wrap of black plastic electrical tape will cure the fit.

I dont know what size i have but mine fell off a couple times while at the townsend shoot, i think i shot 60 rounds total that day. I will try the tape.

The shop I took the rifles to has all the sizes of BC covers on the wall. He told me he always fits them and he did and they are tight. Having said that, my Leupold scopes have the Alumina covers which are really nice and really expensive, in fact, I had 2 rifles fitted and the price of 4 covers, custom fit by the smith was less than one set of Alumina covers.

He told me about the plastic elecrtical tape thing.

IMO, the Alumina covers are light years ahead of the BC in fit and quality but so is the price.

I believe they will fit any applicable ocular or objective because the internal threads (in the end of the ocular and objective are standard across the board) (or at least I think they are). The Alumina's fit on the Vortex PST, I tried them.
