anti-canting equipment

while watching "the one mile shot' by G.David tubb he speaks of the importance of the anti canting devices. ive done abit of research on the web and all that i can seem to find are the bubble levels that attach themselves to the scope or rail but not the ones that fit on the muzzle of the rifle. his reasoning for having a level at the muzzle seemed quite reasonable since he said, if the eye looking through the scope is focused at infinity then by having a level on the muzzle you dont have to change the focus of your eyes but you can look through the scope with one eye and with the other you can check the canting and both eyes are focused at infinity.
can you tell me who supplies anti canting devices that fit on the muzzle, as portrayed in Tubb's DVD?
thank you

    go to the US optics website they supply the best i have seen
    Their are 4 models a scope mounted one
    a scope mounted one that folds away
    a weaver base one
    and a weaver base one that folds away
    They come with a metal protestive lid that screws over the bubble for when it is not in use.

    I have one of the Weaver base folding units on the way in the post at the moment

    If you dont want one of these Sinclair does have them the model i would reccomend is the ofset Sinclair model not the flip up ones.

    I have only found one that mounts on a dove-tail sight block at the muzzle. That was about 10 years ago, and it sits on the front of a scoped M-70 target rifle.

    Al the rest that I have are on the scope or scope base.

    If you want one like on a T2k (I wouldn't), then you should arrange to have the muzzle turned for this device before it's lapped.
    If you simply clamp one onto an existing barrel, your tune will change but the barrel should shoot as well.
    You never know.

    You don't have to watch your cant really. I put the crosshair on the target as it naturally levels, and glance at my scope mounted level to confirm all is in order. If an illusion exists, I take that into account in my shooting.
    For one shooting situation, without change, there is no need to look at it further.
