Anti-Cant Device
« on: January 27, 2017, 09:18:11 AM »
I have been looking for a behind the scope "rail mount" bubble level (anti-cant device), however the only one I can find seems to be this one: http://www.operationparts.com/knights-armament-picatinny-rail-mount-anti-cant-device/ But that $70 price tag seems way too much for such a small device. I'm pretty adamant about one that is rail mount, that way I can attach it underneath my scope instead of off to the side. Scope mounts I don't think will work with my scope version. I'm considered getting a simple magnet back for 1/10th of the price and hoping for the best, but I'm wondering if any of you know of a cheaper version of this?

You could always do a MacGuyver of parts to achieve the same result:
This Rail attachment
with this bubble level attached to it.

Or something similar

Thanks for the replies!

I've considered trying to 3D print something as a guy I contacted did the same with his gun and it looked great. Unfortunately I don't have access to a printer yet but I will in a year.

I found this on amazon for $20

That might work, I'll do some more research on it. Thanks!

You might take a look on Airsoft Sniper forum, I do believe I saw reference to the same type of device allot cheaper BUT it was a while back and this is from memory. It may have been scope mounted, but I believe it was rail. But searching there may help some as well.

Take care!

I bought the 3d printed level I posted from Amazon, build quality doesn't seem to be the best but it gets the job done and has improved my shooting a ton. I tend to always cant my rifle right for some reason and this helped me correct it, definitely recommended.
