Crossbow level

Do any of you folks have a level attached to your bow? If so, where did you attach it? Thanks,
Hank

I mounted mine on the scope. I put a level on the riser and adjust the scope level to match. I use one eye for the scope and the other to check the level.

I have them on the scope and on the riser. I prefer them on the riser and have it mounted on the flat part of the riser just to the left of the broadhead cutout in the riser front. I like the Cir-Cut Archery level bubble that simply sticks on with the included two sided tape. You'll be amazed how your groups will tighten up immediately with the use of the level bubble.

I have one that mounts to the scope rail. Great for practice and sighting in (you probably cant the bow more than you think).

It doesn't look like there is any room on my Equinox riser so I guess I'll have to get a scope mount level. Where would I get one in Canada? Thanks for the replies fellas.

I don't need it for hunting, but I am intrigued by fellow members shooting to 100 yards target practicing and I would like to get in on the fun. :D

....I do not know if you can get this in CA....I came across it on ebay...the description say it is made by Excalibur Crossbow...but i do not recall seeing it or hearing anyone speak about it....It might be Excalibur's since a $5.00 item sells for $25.00 :? :lol: :lol:

25.00 bucks for that? :shock: Sheesh. Does it have genuine Saskatchewan seal skin bindings? I may have to manufacture one.

I epoxied a small tube level to the right hand dovetail. It works great. I can focus on the level and the reticle at the same. Long distance plinking here I come! :D If I get good at it I might mosey on down to the gun range and challenge a few rifle shooters. :wink: Have a great day everyone.

I just bought a rifle scope level off eBay for my micro 335 for long range shooting. It is going to mount on top of the front scope ring band.

Lots of cheap options on ebay & amazon but the shipping costs are retarded. Cheapest option I could find in the local hardware store was a string line level. I carefully took it apart with a set of side cutters :mrgreen:. Used silicone to attach to riser.

That's what I did. My old torpedo level donated one of it's levels to the cause. :lol:
