The covers that came on my Aimpoint actually do not pop up anymore. I figured a ton of people have ordered the covers for the aimpoints so does anyone know which ones to get? Just looking for some descent quality pop up versions.

On my Leupold LR 6.5-20x50mm it came with a pop up cover on the rear lense, the front cover was just a standard cover, do they make a cover for the front that you hit a button or is that how the standard is for pop up covers, only in the back.

[url]http://www.excaliburenterprises.com/scopes/butlercreek/butlercreek.html[/url] With your measurements of the OD on the OBJ and EYE ends, you might find something right on or close. I have gone slightly undersize and gotten a good tight fit. I've used slightly oversize and put electrical tape around the scope to get a tighter fit. Hope you find the ones that work here. Good Luck.

Here are the real thing: [url]http://www.arizonagunrunners.com/Products/Aimpoint/aimpoint.html[/url] The Butler Creek will be too long for the OBJ end (you will need to cut it down quite a bit).

You might try these covers. They work better than butt-ler creeks. [url]http://www.quakeinc.com/category.cfm?cat=4[/url]

Butler creek uses hard plastic for the bells of their covers. Quake uses a softer rubber compound which seals better around the scope, binocular, flashlight, etc. I have them on my scopes, flashlights, binoculars. They have a red LED colored lens for NV, clear, and yellow as well. I'm not saying trash the ones you have if they are working properly but if your looking for new covers give them a try.
