I'm looking at scope level/anti-cant devices for my f-class/varmint rifle.
Which one(s) do you use/prefer and why?
I like the idea of a rail mount as I'm pretty comfortable with the trueness of the rail that came with my action (stiller tac-30). But if the mount isn't machined well, then I don't think it'll sit level on the rail when snugged into place.
I like the NF due to the name/reputation, but I've got EGW rings on my NF scope.
I like the looks of Scoplevel because it sits up high for visibility and should exaggerate the amount of cant. But, it looks like it might be cheaply made.
I use a b-square rail mount. It was only 15 bucks out of Brownells.They also have a scope ring type as does Vortex for 30-40 dollars. I used a small rod and levels for arrows to check my rail mnt and they where very close.I like the looks of the ring cap type for a NF. Would be curious if it fit M4 leo cap. Flatline and USO BOTH MAKE flip out levels, but are pricey, Flatline has the cosine mnt built in one model.
Location: The rifle range, or archery range or behind the computer in Alaska
Re: scope level anti-cant recomendations
I really like the USO level. NOT the flip out version. There were too many mixed reviews on the flip out. So I got the fixed version and LOVE it. I like it because I can see it without moving my head like I did with the type that was mounted on the top of my scope. Mounted to my rail right under the parallax adjustment knob, its out of the way. It is solid, durable and has a threaded cap to protect it with a threaded hub on the reverse side so you dont loose the cap. It is a very well made, quality tool. Even mounted in front of my ACI (side of rail low mount) I can see the top of the glass/bubble.
I too was concerned with how level it would be when mounted to my rail and it is SPOT on. USO will NOT let you return it if you dont like it but Midway USA sells them and will let you return it.
I have tried several types and this one is my favorate.
The USO fixed gets my vote.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
I squared up my rail with a B-Square and then put a Vortex on my scope that sticks out on the left and very easy to see with my left eye while my right eye is looking through the scope. Then if I move the scope from one rifle to another it makes it easier to put the scope into other rings with the bubble showing when the vertical cross hair is vertical.
