    I've never used a rail mounted level, but I think it would be much easier to install than the ones on the scope--they are a real pain in the butt!

    I don't think they work any better , but I prefer it on the scope. I can check it more easily since it's in the same plane as my eyes.

    I use rail mount just for the convenience of mounting. Being a right handed shooter, I mount mine to the left side which makes viewing very easy. Not saying there better or worse than other types, just my preference.
