I need info about scope covers

I just recently bought a NcStar Mark III Tactical Scope 3-9x42 Mil Dot.

This is going on my M4, I'm getting ready to head to Iraq. The thing is I don't want to have to screw with these dust covers, I would like to get the flip up style protective lens but I'm having problems finding the right ones.

I've looked at the Butler Creek lens but I can't find the ones I need. Any help would be appreciated.

I checked Midway but there's no listing for the scope and so no dimensions. The OP's best bet is to measure the scope and then pick up the covers at the local gun shop.

the eye is 30mm, and the objective is 42mm, that's what I know.
I'm not staking my life on this but I think it's a nice scope and I can't complain because it was given to me as a gift. Thanks guys

If you can't find scope covers try the neoprene covers. Secure them on both sides of the adjustment knobs with a zip-tie, then just pull them off of the objective and eyepiece lens when you are ready to shoot.
