Re: Xtreme Hardcore Rail

The more I think about this.... If you mounted the rail and then plumbed the scope to a plumb line with the rail level reading level, that would probably work OK. The reticle wouldn't necessarily be perfectly aligned to the bore but it would probably be close enough to work.

    You know this subject keeps bubbling up and it's really hard to make a point just posting. Someone (rifle smith) should make a video starting right at the receiver showing the process all the way up to installing the scope.

    Great thread!

Adjusting the level so it plumbs the scope is step 2.

    Like I said in my first post, it's a great idea.... but the devil is in the details.
    How would one go about installing a rail with the scope already mounted to it?

    That was my point. That said, I think the way I described in the next post (#36) would work.
