Gripe - Burris Fullflield does not come with Lens Caps

I just got a 2.5-10X Fullfield IV. The glass seems bright enough, but there are no lens caps.

Many makers don't send out their scopes with caps. Part of the reason I usually order from SWFA is that they show you which caps fit the scope or sometimes throw them in.

I use flip-ups, but if the Fullfield II is like the F I, they don't work very well. I just put one on the objective end and go with that. They are nice scopes for the money, but I hate the way the entire ocular rotates when you increase magnification. That has kept me from buying more of them.

I would just be happy with 2 caps on elastic or one of those rubber bra things. Does not have to be flip-up.

I throw those away as soon as I get the new scope.

The rubber bra things and neoprene covers are funny when your sitting there and while trying to get them off, then they fling off like a rubber band.
Especially when you in your stand. And it's raining.

But, they make great slingshots!

I usually use the flip-up caps as well. Butler Creek has a a good range of sizes, both for eyepiece and objective. Depending on size, they can be a pain to track down in stock though. Otherwise, I would go with one of those rubber/neoprene "over the shoulder optic holder" covers.

Ive got a crap load of butler creek caps you can have for free. I thought they were great until i scared a deer away when I opened the cover. I got rid of all of them. You pay shipping and you can have a bag of all different sizes. Probably close to 10 pairs.

PS shipping is $100

If they could make them slightly more "rubbery" or stronger somehow where they hinge they would be decent.
Bending them around when its cold they are a little fragile if your not careful because of snags.
Ive had a few that broke unexpectedly but have just been snapping them back on to keep water out.
