I got the calipers out instead of trying to measure with the tape and had 51.5mm on the objective, 40.5mm on the rubber eye, and 41.3mm on the eye piece.

I found an old Butler Creek chart that list 14/33 for the 2.5-10x44. That lines up pretty close to my measurements so I’m going to order those.

I’ll update after I receive them.

I ended up ordering Monstrum instead of Butler Creek. They were a little cheaper but could get here about a week faster.

They are a soft rubber and fit a range of scopes. I ordered 37-42mm for the eyepiece and49-54mm for the objective. I only installed them today but initial opinions are positive.

Does their eyepiece cap push to open like the Butler Creek? My Vortex caps don’t, and always pull off when trying to pop open. That’s why I want the Butler Creek.

Good question. I need two eyepiece caps myself. The Vortex caps I have want to slide off when trying to open.
Put a wrap of tennis wrap or even tape on the end of the scope and then slide the Vortex caps over it and they will stop sliding.

Hmmm! I just read your other post where you said yours don't flip open. You must have different Vortex caps on yours than I have on mine. I use the Defender caps.

They flip open, but by pulling the tab away from scope. Butler Creek makes their eyepiece cap so that you push forward toward the scope. Makes a huge difference.
Here’s one on my Ruger:
Wood Font Writing implement Flooring Garden tool


push the red lever
Wood Gas Writing implement Musical instrument Idiophone


and it silently pops open.

The Monstrum does not have a lever like the Butler Creek you do push on the corner of the cover itself to pop it open.

I’ll have it out hunting this weekend so I should have some more experience by Monday.
