    “broekzwans”The problem I had with the hawke bubble level is that it’s made for 9-11 mm and my rail is 11 mm. If you use them on an 11 mm rail they will start to climb upwards when tightening. Therefore I don’t use them anymore..


    Darn, I just ordered one of the Hawke levels.  Well too late now, I will see how it does on my HW95 with an 11 mm rail.  I am not shooting much past 60 yards, but was wanting to see if a level helped some of my horizontal stringing at that range.  I have a target at 60 that is on off camber ground, and notice I shoot a little left on that target due to the cant.  Not much at that distance, but noticeable.  We will see how it works out, I may have to spring for a higher end level if it doesn’t work, or try shimming it.

    A bit of topic…

    I believe that gun manufacturer should have those build in to begin with. Just like DAYSTATE does on some of their models. Just my 2 cents.

When mounted the hawke level is consistent so that’s not the problem and consistency is key when canting. As long as you always cant the same amount it’s just a matter of compensating for that shift. 

    I shoot a lot at different distances, also past 100 meters so with that already canted bubble it didn’t make it easier to shoot at those distances. Now with a properly aligned bubble level you don’t (or barely) have to compensate for the increasing effect of cant over distance.

    Good point Broekzwans, I guess if it was off you could actually scribe a new level lines on the housing for the bubble to line up with, as long as the bubble was not maxed out at its extremes in the housing.  I will hang a plumb line to make sure the scope and gun are level (both leveled during mounting), and see where the anti cant bubble lines up and mark it.  It was cheap so we will see how it works out.

    Or for the low low price of $1999 one could get a SigSauer Tango6 with built in LevelPlex into the reticle. They need to redesign their web layout, very sketchy on which models have it. Other websites say it’s on most the Tango6 lineup.
    “LevelPlex allows the user to remove unwanted cant from the shooting system to +/- .5° of accuracy, 6 times more accurate than a typical bubble level.”

    But is it springer rated? LOL

    Dude, I have no idea (joking aside I wish I could tell you). I called and found out the Tango4 line parallax is marked at 50 yards. Clearly for powder.

    The Tango 6 18x 44mm model is 25 yards. They are redesigning the 6 series so all have LevelPlex. I cant understand what they put in these to be 3x the gravity of Earth…a 3-18x 44mm is 37.6oz?! ARE you KIDDING? Unreal. The big boy 4-24x 50mm is 40oz. That’s insane.
