Alumina Flip-Back Lens Cover – 40mm & Standard EP

Designed for Leupold scopes built after 2003, Alumina® Flip-Back™ lens covers feature powerful neodymium magnets to hold them securely closed and the triple O-ring seals provide maximum protection from the elements. Constructed out of durable 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum, they are precisely machined to allow for quick and easy operation, and a low-profile position, when open, make these Flip-Back lens covers stand above the rest. The round objective and ocular models can be rotated so they can open in any direction. Scopes built prior to 2003 can be threaded to accept Alumina accessories at a 50% discount, with proof of purchase, through the Leupold Custom Shop by calling 800-538-7653.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed First, let me say that I LOVE Leupold scopes. I own/have owned many over the years. I won't own any other scope. That said, I was extremely disappointed in this wrench. First off, it's not made in the USA like the scopes are. That in itself is a disappointment to me. And then it's just not well made in my opinion. The metal just seems too soft on it. I actually just put it up in my gun box and went to ACE Hardware and bought a Craftsman wrench that's made in the USA, has a lifetime warranty, and has much better metal for really torquing down. Again, I absolutely love Leupold scopes and optics, and own many, but I just wish they would put the same quality in their mounting tools as they do for their optics and mounting systems.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from One good cover, one bad... I just bought a new Leupold VX3i scope and wanted some covers to keep the glass clean...I bought the 40mm objective and standard eyepiece kit and while the objective cap works well, the eyepiece cover seems to be disfunctional. i tightened the eyepiece cover as snugly as I felt comfortable doing without risking damaging my scope or cover, however the cover rotates when open and slides down until it sits on the rifle. I know the covers are designed so they can spin on the rifle and be positioned at any angle, but my objective cap literally flops over every time I open it. I am surprised a Leupold cover designed for a Leupold scope doesn't function properly...I am considering returning my covers and trying a different brand - unless the cover itself may need replacement? Additionally, I have tried posting this question twice on the site and neither times has my question been answered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens Caps These lens caps are the most pefect lens caps available on the market. When installed, they look like they came with the scope. Perfect marriage of scope and flip-up lens caps

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Look and Function I bought a VX3i a few months ago and then decided to finish it off with some scope covers before hunting season this year. After shopping for covers and finding a set of the leupold covers it was a cinch to pick these for my new scope. The look of the covers itself was enough to make the decision to purchase. Once mounted I was very happy with the way these covers functioned - easy opening with a positive "click" when closing. A couple issues I encountered during and after the installation are worth mentioning to try and save others from the same problems. #1) The scope was mounted on my rifle so while attempting to screw on the front cover the hinge would hit the barrel. I had to unmount the scope to thread on the front cover. Since I used leupold mounts I was a little surprised that this happened. #2) The bigger problem was encountered once both covers were installed and the scope remounted. When attempting to operate the rifles bolt it would hit the rear cover release making it impossible to open the bolt with the cover oriented with the hinge up. NOTE: My rifle is a left hander so this problem would not be encountered by most. I wish that leupold would make a rear cover that would work with a left handed gun but do understand the economics of why they don't.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Discontinued battery pack - part #52644 The battery must have leaked inside the pack that fits under the tube. The threads are frozen. Looked for a replacement part and they have been discontinued. Looks like I now have a $900 piece of scrape metal. Thanks Leopold for the great service after the sale. Last time I purchase your products.
