In the old (pre-Wheeler Professional Reticle Leveling System) days, mounting a scope was a big production. The old way was to first set a rifle to level it out. Back then the scope was placed in the rings, and the shooter used their eye to level the horizontal bar of the reticle. The shooter would adjust the vertical component, until it was properly perpendicular to the axis of the rifle. This method was effective most of the time, but not always. It also took a lot of time and effort.
Nowadays, there are some fairly affordable reticle-leveling systems available. But for professionals who mount scopes for customers, a much more effective system is needed. That’s where the Wheeler Professional Reticle Leveling System comes in.
The Wheeler Professional Reticle Leveling System is probably the most effective tool that can be used to align a scope precisely. It’s made from anodized aluminum, and it comes with factory adjusted calibration set screws, aluminum level housings, Computer Numeric Control machined aluminum level housings, and a protective molded case. It also comes with an easy to understand and implement instructions.
This system can be used for just about any type of firearm. The list includes falling block action (aka dropping-block or sliding-block), bolt action, pump action or semi-autos, including AR platforms.
Pros and Cons
This is probably one of those tools that when used, people can’t tolerate anything less afterwards. The Wheeler Professional Reticle Leveling System is a supreme example of a tool that helps people mount a scope correctly. With this instrument, leveling out the reticle on a new scope takes an astonishingly short amount of time. The instructions are quite easy to follow as well.
Of course, the bad news here is the price. But for those who tend to mount scopes regularly such as gunsmiths and dealers, this tool is priceless. It may even be a worthy investment for those who have bought expensive scopes, since mounting such a scope incorrectly renders them virtually useless.
Some people simply want the best, but others need the best. When it comes to mounting a scope, some people who do it regularly for their customers have to make sure that they’re doing it right—and that they’re doing it quickly too. With this system, they can be sure that they’re mounting a scope correctly.
When it comes to quickly setting up a scope for maximum precision, there’s probably no other system out there that can match the excellence of the Wheeler Professional Reticle Leveling System. It’s that good.
