    We are live with what we are calling our 2018 Scope Checkers. If you want to mount to a rifle, you must buy a Lower. Lowers will mount to a Picatinny rail or a Kelbly Panda F-Class "Picatnny". They will not mount to a dovetail/ Davidson. Remember, the host rifle doesn't have to be a bench gun. Most everyone that's serious enough about accuracy to check their scopes has something with a Picatinny rail to provide muzzle blast & recoil.

    There are lots of things that you can do with what we are calling our Uppers without ever mounting them to a rifle. Clamp it to a solid bench or put it in a vise in your shop & you can do a lot of cool stuff. These include tall target tests, scope leveling, ring lapping, scope zeroing, turret tracking, resistance to movement under nearby muzzle blast, watching a target over the course of a day to see what conditions do to image placement... the list goes on. For these reasons, plus the various rail configurations, we are selling the Uppers individually. Uppers are compatible with our previous generation checkers, as well.

    Upper + lower + flat rate shipping = just under $200. Could be the best $200 you'll spend in the pursuit of extreme accuracy.

    Thanks to those that helped with the design. You know who you are because you've already got one ;)...

    Get them here thru our online store.

    Thanks for the orders. We still have plenty of stock on the lowers, the double Picatinny uppers and the Picatinny/ Dovetail uppers.

    There are so many uses for these checkers. Ring lapping.

    Rainy day, can’t make it to the range, but still want to rough zero your scope when switching from 1 to another?

    Mount them both to the upper. In this case, the little Vortex was zeroed on this rifle, the larger NF is going on it for a gas gun comp out to 800 yards that my friend is shooting. I’m letting him borrow my hardware so he can get a feel for it before the spending really starts.

    Then open the garage, find a spot on the neighbor’s house to aim the zeroed scope at. Dial the other scope to cowitness. Reset the turret caps. That’s it, you’re pretty close. We also adjusted the diopter for my friend’s eyes, explained parallax, etc while on the tripod.

    Doing it this way instead of bore sighting on the rifle makes neighbors a lot less anxious !

    Co-witnessed.....I did a few things that were co-witnessed in my younger days, but that's a story for between relays
    I used to have Travis's energy, then I got old, but they still don't offer me senior coffee!!

    One way would be...
    • put two scopes on the scope checker upper
    • clamp the upper to a solid bench & level it wit with the leveling screws
    • dial the reference scope to a precise POA. Maybe a 1/8" dot at 100 yards.
    • dial the scope that you want to test to a known position on the target. For example, the target could be graph paper with a 1/4 MOA grid. You could start on a dot in the middle of the grid.
    • confirm that the reference scope is still aimed precisely at the dot it was originally lined up to (set-up didn't move)
    • crank knob(s) on scope that you are testing and see if it tracks as it should - the whole test, you must confirm that the set-up didn't move by looking thru the reference scope.
    There are other ways. You could do it with the scopes mounted to a rifle, but you'd probably have to do some dialing to re center the reference POA after each adjustment.
