Most Helpful Customer Reviews
These are very fragile and not really suitable for hunting. It is hard to believe that they couldn't even take the time to properly flare the hinge pin so it doesn't fall out. I already had to re-center it when it started to fall out one side. I have a target rifle with a ridiculously expensive scope and these caps will protect the lenses while it is in the gun case, and while I'm setting up on the bench. If you want to use these caps out in the woods you would need to buy several of them so you have back-ups to replace the broken flip-up lids. At least they are cheap. This is just one more example of a product that could be very good if they worried less about making big buck profits for themselves and/or their shareholders. American-made and American-designed products are often of shameful low quality because companies want to make more than just a fair profit...that want to make a killing, and the customer and employees get the short end of the stick!
I have read the reviews about these covers however I am 70 now and do not go on excursions to wilderness areas so I can not attest to their durability. I can tell you that I put them on a Vortex 50mm scope wit the sun shield attached. They went on snuggly and will not just fall off. What I didn't think of is that if you adjust the objective lens the scope cover turns also and then when you flip it open of course it might open side to side or bottom to top.
I am a prepper an don't know if the SHTF scenario will actually happen or not so my gun sits in my closet, loaded just in case, with these scope caps on and closed. I can tell you that under those circumstances that these caps fill my purpose.
I ordered this item on January 17, 2017. I called Amazon on January 22, 2017 and spoke with Rod D. (supervisor) and Nel A. (customer service rep) regarding my issue. Neither were able to resolve my concern. I ordered the wrong size of item. I meant to order a size 16 (1.66-inch 42.2mm) The ASN ID for the size 16 is B0014VXBDM. Both Rod D. and Nel A. received this information. The item is sold by Amazon and costs the same as the size 02A ($4.99). I simply wanted to return the 02A and get a Size 16 as a replacement OR purchase the Size 16 on its own (since i ordered the wrong one - it was my mistake). I was told this is not an option. If I return the item, I will simply get a replacement of the same item **the wrong sized item that i don't need**. I was told I can get a refund for the item of $4.99, but because it's an add-on item, it would cost me 5x as much ($25) to place another order for a size 16. So, I'm left with two options: 1. Return the entire order I placed ($140 before...
