I'm trying to order a set of Buttler Creek Flip up scope covers. The problem I'm running into is I can't figure out the correct size.

The scope I'm using is a Nikon 4 - 16 X 42. The objective O.D. size is 49.3mm and the eyepiece O.D. size is 44mm. The fit chart for Buttler Creek doen't have either of those sizes.

Does anyone have the same scope or a scope of the same size, if so could you provide me with some assistance in figuring out what size covers I need.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide me.

Try this: http://www.eabco.com/flip_open.htm

Having said that you're best to go to a store that stocks them because some from the charts are just way too tight.

I just went through a bunch of BS trying to get correct fit.

good luck

You need a #19 Eye (43.9mm) and a #29 Obj (48.7mm).

You need a snug fit.

BHP9...Thanks, I'll give that a try....Hopefully it will work for me.
There's not shops close to me so I would have to drive a ways to go and try them out before I buy them.
