    Hey guys, thought I'd share a neat little project that seems to be wrapped up. I couldn't believe a scope level with an independently adjustable level was $150, so I made my own.

    Version 1 has been tested up to 338 Lapua Improved recoil and passed fine. Pictured is Version 2 which is a clamshell design with less pieces to lose. It is on my GAP/CZ/Manners 22. Excuse the bit of finish rubbed off, we were testing different bolt head sizes. A little bit shorter bolt and I'm totally satisfied. They thread into two captured nuts, and the whole assembly is bolted onto the scope via one bolt into helicoils sank into the plastic.

    Quite pleased with how it functions, and the finish matches a matte black scope perfectly.

    How much you going to charge? How long before you ship them?

    If there were to be potential buyers, I would like to streamline the design a bit for aesthetic purposes. That being said, I can have that done within a few days!

    The price will be $30. Threads are helicoiled in, so you're screwing metal into metal for good durability.

    I would definitely take 2 if you decide to produce them.

    If you make one in 34mm I will take one. Once I get my next scope I will purchase another. Let me know.

    First off. That is the coolest design I've seen.

    Would you be willing to license or share the file for personal use only?

    That would push me over the edge to purchase a 3D printer.

    If not I would like to discuss volume pricing.

    Thanks for the interest guys. I will be sending you each personal messages.

    Right now we would like to keep the design private jfseaman, I posted this a few places yesterday evening and it has taken off enough that we will be filing a patent.

    This is a side project for our main project, which I will show this site in a few weeks. It's pretty game changing in my opinion. That being said, we are just a few guys with fulltime jobs trying to develop things and a website at the same time. The website is on its way, but not worthy to show to the public yet.
