Quality level at reasonable price?

Hey fellas, I have learned the leson of how important it is that your cross hairs be level when your shooting at distance. With this in mind could yal recommend a quality/affordable level for my rifle that would fit on my picatiny rail as now that I have my scope set I have no desire to change out rings for a ring mounted level. Thank's, Brad

    Define reasonable price Usually quality & cost rise in direct relation to one another.

    I've used & still have a Holland & have now moved on to the FlatLine Ops setup. Both mount to the scope tube, with the Holland, I had to remove the scope. With the FlatLine I did not.

    You can also add an ACI/ADI if you want in the future.

    I've used several different ones, all with good success. I am currently using one called Scopelevel that has been on a 22-250 for 10 years anyway. Inexpensive and it works great. Probably wouldn't be too hard to break it though.
    The other I am using is a Flat Line Ops unit that is mounted on a picatinny rail. The both work just as well.
    I had a Holland for a while and really liked the looks of that one, but sold the rifle before getting a chance to use it.

    I have a Badger Ordnance ACI with picatinny mounting bracket for sale. It was mounted, but never left the house. If you're shooting far enough to need a level, you will need to account for angle as well.

    I also have the Holland and Flatline levels. Both work well, are rugged and accurate, with the Holland being a more simple design and lower price.

    One thing I will add.

    The FlatLine OPS level was WAY easier to set than my holland. With the set screws under the level for both the neutral & extended positions, it was a BREEZE to set. Literally half the time to setup than my holland.


    Yup, it's a more expensive unit, but it's a better unit as well.
