Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Cap!! Having used other caps for a few years and never having one last more than a year, I picked up one of these a few weeks back and am very impressed. It's easy to get on and off the scope if you're trying to, but there's no way it's popping off accidentally. The opening mechanism is quiet and even more importantly it seems very sturdy. A little prying this way, a little bending the other way, and this cap isn't even bothered by it. I'd moved away from scope caps over the last year as I got sick of breaking them but after using this one I'll be picking up more for my other rifles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Be careful! I was recommended the Defender O-56 for my Crossfire II 3-12x56 by Vortex Optics and it's a BAD fit! The O-56 made for 62-66 mm uoter diameter and the Crossfire has 70,4 at the absolut end and about 74 mm on the focal grip. It is possible to force it on but then it flip open almost by it self. If you mount it just on the end where it's 70,4 mm it will fall of.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from To loose This is the first negative review of a vortex product I've ever made. I have these on a genii 4.5-27 razor and they are extremely tough but they don't fit tight enough. The objective cap comes off every time I open it and I lost an ocular cover with my dope disc while on a hunt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well! Just make sure of sizing prior to purchasing Flip cap works well with my Razor HD GEN II 4.5-27X56 optic. Was a perfect fit, works as it should and flips up easily with spring assist, and clips shut and stays shut without any issues. Just pay attention to sizing, and it should fit just fine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could be better I have these for my 4.5-27x56. The problem is that the objective cover wants to come off when trying to flip open. This happens about 70% of the time. Vortex needs to make a real lens cover.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad fit Agreed: These caps do not fit well. Just purchased an objective lens cap for the Razor HD II it feels like these will slip right off.

I have a Vortex Crossfire II 4x12 50AO scope and can you tell me which model flip scope covers, for both the eye piece and objective, I need for it. I want to get the ones to use with your data discs. Thanks!

Will the model 56 Defender cap fit on my Vortex Crossfire AO Hog Hunter 56mm objective lens? My model scope isn't listed as being one that's compatible. Thanks.
Asked by: John
It will fit, but it is very snug. It'll take a little elbow grease and doesn't seem to line up perfectly but it works and does not obstruct you field of view.

Will the flip cap 56 fit my Crossfire II AO Hog hunter 56mm objective lens? Will the flip cap eyepiece cover fit my eyepiece as well? My model is not listed as compatible, so I'd like to be sure before ordering. Thanks.
Asked by: John
The eyepiece will fit the Hoghunter. The O-56 will fit the objective, however it is very snug and does not fit perfectly.
