Hello folks,

This is my first post to this nice place!

I am looking for a flip-up cover for a 6-24x72 Zeiss scope.

the largest i can find are 3" , but the OD of the scope is 80mm.


Thanks in advance,


pyro

I dont use flip ups to the ones I have, I am instead using the Scopecoat neoprene covers.

The big XP6 does actually fit the 6-24x72 including sunshade and rubber eyepeice.

Those scopecoats are on my SuB 3-12x42 and Aimpoints, the scopecoats are great to protect the scope when it's stored in my rucksack while the aimpoint is mounted and vise versa.

 

Regards Technika

High quality scopes in this group should have screw on covers, even if it requires having them made, if it doesn't already come with them. Euro focus eye pieces are a pain with flip ups (or vice versa)

The Zeiss comes with "Bikini covers" but i dont like that solution at all.
It is indeed a shame that they not even offer flip-up covers.
Neoprene covers are not what i am looking for.
The gun is already protected in its bag for transport,
I want to protect the "big" lens from debris and rain an the way throgh the woods.

When I am hunting I always have the sunshield and rubber eyepeice on.

That is also great for protecting the lenses from rain and other problems.

But this is not a gun I am walking around with so therefor i don't have the need of flip open covers.

 

When moving around the flip ups are to be prefered but when hunting from a fix point the sunshield and rubber eyepeice is much more effective.
