Anyone know who manufactures scope caps for the T50? Checked out the Butler Creek sight and they don't offer one for the massive 60mm objective end. Also looking for a rubber shade for the eye piece if anyone has one for sale.

I bought some Butler Creek flip-open caps for a scope recently, and the packaging showed a handy size guide. According to it, there's a cap available for your scope bell size, number 10 on the chart. Just make the conversion from metric to Imperial. HTH.

Any issues with the Blizzards staying closed? I have a set of these for my Elite 8-32 and the friction fit just won't stay closed - I heard that the BC's with the latch (i.e. Multi-Flex) solved this issue. Anyone else have this issue with Blizzard - maybe I just got a lemon set.....

EDIT - the objective diameter is 67mm

No issues with them staying closed, I need to push the flip caps firmly to snap them closed (and they stay closed, even with a good bump on the rifle's butt), and the effort to open them is quite noticeable. Regarding the bell diameter of your scope, the biggest cap listed on the chart goes up to 2.50'' (#11), which equals to 63.5 mm, so not appropriate :? . Out of curiosity I went on the Butler Creek site, and the biggest cap listed is for a 65.4 mm cap maximum (Flip Open series). Wouldn't you be able to get caps from your scope manufacturer?
