You know what it's like when you tilt your crosshairs out of vertical—you can't hit a thing at long range. The reason is that your scope reticle is sighted in straight up and down to zero a bullet that travels in a straight up and down trajectory arch. If you tilt your gun to either side, the trajectory arch will no longer be aligned to your scope reticle. Not to worry, however. A scope level can keep your crosshairs in line.
A scope level attaches to standard 1-inch scope tubes and folds down out of the way when you're not using it. When you flip it up, you can actually see the bubble in the level when you're lining up your shot in the scope eyepiece. You'll never have to wonder about being out of vertical again.
