I'm most likely going to buy a Burris Signature Select scope but I'm a little concerned about using flip open "Butler Creek" style scope covers for it.  While reading up on the scope at chuckhawks.com I found this excerpt: 

 

There is one feature of the Burris Signature Select, while perhaps technically superior, that I have mixed emotions about. That is the one-piece power ring / ocular assembly. I can certainly see the less potential leak paths. However, it also inhibits the use of flip-out scope covers. With Burris' utilization of quad rings, the leak path reduction seems a bit more theoretical than an actual advantage.

 

Is the author saying that flip open scope covers can't be used on it or that it would just be hard to use them?   I assumed almost all scopes have some type of adjustment on the ocular end of the scope.  Wouldn't that inhibit the use of flip up scope covers on other scopes?  Also, I'm a newbie with scopes so any help explaining this in detail would be appreciated.

The Burris one piece, fixed ocular/power ring is a real turn off for me.

I saw a FF II the other day. While the optics looked good, the power ring spinning the eye piece sucked. IMO

It just seemed real hinky.

 

And yes, it would inhibit the use of BC caps. I didn't think of that until you mentioned it.

I run BC caps on all my stuff.

 

Whats the deal with nitrogen leakage you were referring too??

The link for the article on the Signature Select can be found here:  http://www.chuckhawks.com/burris_signature_select_3-10.htm

 

Can you elaborate more on inhibiting the use of BC caps?  Can you still use them on the Signature Select?  How is the Signature Select eyepiece different than other scopes?

You can use the BC covers on a Burris, I have.  Personally, I put zero stock into anything that Chuck Hawks says.  My guess is that Burris refused to pay his fee.

When you have the cap open, and go to change the power, the open lens cover is going to contact the stock, I would have assumed.

But according to ranburr, it's not a problem.

Actually, the author of the article is Randy Wakeman and it's a flattering review of the Signature Select. 

 

Ranburr, can you give more information as to how easy or not easy it is using BC covers on the Signature Select compared to other scopes?

You put it on just like any other scope.  I leave my scopes set on the same power 90% of the time, so there is no issue.  If you do change powers simply adjust the cover as you do.  The caps were never an issue for me and I have them on all of my scopes.
