    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

    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.
