Re: Pictures of bubble level ...

Can someone tell me how high the B-square bubble level is above the top surface of the rail underneath the scope tube.
I have .290" from the top of my rail to the bottom of my scope tube.
Will this bubble level mount on a Picatinny rail?
Thanks in advance.

Yes, this level is made to mount on a picatinny rail. I think mine was $17 or so.
They hardly weigh anything and don't get in the way like you might think they do.
Oh, and they are reversable so you can use them on either side of the scope.

I bought it from Brownells at around $25.

It measures 0.25 inches thick above the rail.

Does not require a slot in the rail.

I'm thinking blue Locktite on the screw. (I blue locktite everything ...)

Haven't got to try it out as it rained all weekend.

I use the same level. When shooting from a bench, I have little difficulty keeping things stright up and down. In the field, off a bipod, things are different. Changing locations, uneven ground, visual obstacles, and prairie dog fever all add up to canting your rig. The level is a nice tool that helps you 'learn' the proper position for you and your rifle. As time goes by and your experience increases, you'll find yourself less dependent upon the device.

Anything that boosts shooter confidence is generally a good thing.

I found it at Mid South Shooters Supply for $17.50 and will be ordering one Monday. There are two styles listed. I believe the one I need for my IOR incline rail is the Weaver style. Correct?
