I have a vintage redfield widefield scope that had a front lens cover on it from Butler Creek, but broke. I am looking for a replacement for it, but they don't seem to be available. I would have used the indication numbers on the inside of the cap, but they were worn over time. I measured the outside diameter of the lens bell and got 1.47 inches. The chart on the package of the lens cover I bought indicates that it would require a size '3' cap. For some reason, the size 3 was too big Sad. . I used another little paper tool from the package to see what size I DO need and got this.... Im stuck between a size 1 and 2. I need some serious help here.

Update:  I talked to a guy from Bushnell about their Butler Creek products and he said that these "Blizzard" lens covers seem to have a typo. Where it says a particular size will fit on a certain diameter, they messed up big time as none of the sizes listed are accurate to the real thing. The lens cover that will fit is the size 01 eye, or the size 03 obj. Hopefully this will serve as information to anyone else who might have this problem.
