Re: BC Flip up sizes

In the first post it has SWFA 10x42 #20eye #30OBJ (both models) this is not correct. I own both models, #20 fits the first model for eye, the HD eye takes a #19eye and #30OBJ.

Re: BC Flip up sizes

anyone have a positive ID on sizing for IOR 9-36x56? Looks like #51 objective...not sure on the eyepiece? looks way bigger than their largest size? (using Midways' chart)

thanks in advance!

Re: BC Flip up sizes

Wotac 4-14x44 FFP

18 eye
33 objective
Very tight fit on both.


I'll post the IOR 6.5-24x56 FFP caps later tonight, if they fit.

Re: BC Flip up sizes

IOR 6.5-24x56 FFP

Objective 51
Eye The 18 will fit but it is absolutely too tight, go the next size up. I fought putting the 18 on for 10 minutes after boiling in water. It works but you will need to pry it on. Note: I left the rubber eye ring on the eye piece.

Steve the caps you need are 19EYE & 40OBJ.</div></div>

Im pretty certain the OBJ is not 40. I ordered a 40 and there is no way that thing will fit.

The 40 is not the correct size for the objective on the SS 5-20x50. The 40's intended objective size is 2.250", +.025" or - .01". The SS 5-20x50's objective OD is 2.365", so a size 44 appears to be the correct objective cap.

Re: BC Flip up sizes

Just confirming that the 44 is the correct size objective cover for the SS 5-20x50 HD, with the newer, thicker BC caps. Got one today and it's tiiiiiiight. May want to soften in a bit with the boiling water trick before sliding it on.

Thanks for the info! I ordered my optic today and will be grabbing the BC caps and will report back on the fit.
 
Re: BC Flip up sizes

I had some trouble getting a correct size for my IOR 2-12x Spartan objective side. The chart on the package said it would fit but it was so tight that when I put the cover on, the polymer ring would enlarge and the flip cover would not stay closed. I swapped it out for the next size up, which was too loose. So I used some 3M painters tape and wrapped a couple of bands of it around the end of the obj, it works like a charm even on my DTA 338Lapua.

Re: BC Flip up sizes

Sooo...I felt like a caveman trying to put a square peg in a round hole. I just could NOT get the cap on the end of my objective! (NXS 50mm, size 43 cap) I felt like a moron, but I finally did it! and that thing is NOT coming off! haha

Has anyone used the next size up? I'm not worried if it's not super tight like it is now, just as long as it doesn't fall off when you move the gun aroung.

2.5-10x44 has a 1.630 ocular. which means the 16 is too big. it seems the 14 would be a better fit.

I confirmed this today. The #14 is the correct eye piece.

Just had the same experience, took some patience to get it on and make sure the 43 cap would shut properly. I am happy, its just gonna be a bitch to remove it if I ever need to.

I disagree. I ordered the #16 and it was too big and others have commented on this as well. Everytime I engaged the release lever, the whole cap shifted askew...I knew it wasn't a fit just by how loosely it mounted. I bought the #14 and it is perfectly snug.

You might be right. Mine doesn't move as much but it moves slightly- I just ordered the 14 to see if it fits better.

Just a few I hadn't seen on here yet, or in the case of the Falcon didn't have a solid answer. </div></div>

Just a heads up...This is the incorrect size for the Falcon. The 46 obj is too small to fit. I bought two. After asking on the forum, apparently not the quality they used to be. I'm over it. I went with a Bikini.
