If you are like me, you love picking up little gadgets and gear that make life easier. I’ve had this piece of gear for a year or so now, but I recently picked up a new scope to go on a rifle. Since I had to break it out I figured why not do a write up. After looking at the tons of scope leveling kits out there, I decided to give this one a try because of the way it works. Very quick and easy set up and I haven’t met a rifle yet that the system did not work on.
The design of the system is pretty genius and works with just about any firearm in three easy steps:
Step1: Level the rifle by putting the level on the top of the receiver. Once the rifle is level make sure you can lock it in place either in a vise or by suing a swivel bi-pod with a lock.**I realize I snapped the picture before it was level**
Step2: Place the barrel devise on the barrel and true that level to the action level. The thumb screw on the top of the devise allows you to adjust the level.
Step3: Remove the level from the action and drop you scope into its rings. You can either use the action level on the top of the scope turret or hang a plumb line to level the reticle. I do both. The reason for this is because the reticle could be installed with up to 20 degrees worth of offset depending on the manufacturer of the scope. So even though the scope itself is level, it is possible that the cross hairs are not level. That’s just how I do it….feel free to do it you own way.
So there you have it! Scope is on and leveled.
