Did you know that Fix It Sticks also makes a scope mounting tool (the Scope Jack) and a bubble level kit?  When the Varminter crew visited the Fix It Sticks booth at the 2020 SHOT Show (Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade Show), they showed us their latest products for mounting your scope accurately and efficiently.  Although this overview covers both products, they are actually sold separately and designed to be used independently.

We requested a set of each, so the folks at Fix It Sticks sent them to me.  Included in the video above, I show the steps to install a scope using the Scope Jack, as well as an overview of the Bubble Level Set.  Below, I briefly explain each of the steps using both items, but the video, though long, is a much better tutorial of their use.

Fix It Sticks – Scope Jack and Bubble Leveling Kits

The Fix It Sticks Scope Jack:

The scope jack is a scope is a tool that is designed to aid in the rapid mounting of an optic. This tool requires the firearm to have a picatinny rail.

 

The first step in using the Scope Jack is to have your optic set into your rings and leave the screws a bit loose so the optic can rotate. 

 

The Scope Jack then mounts to the picatinny rail by way of a thumb screw. 

 

Once mounted you raise the scope jack using the 1/4″ head on the side of the mount until it comes into contact with the bottom of the turret housing. 

 

Then slightly rotate your scope until the turret housing is flush with the Scope Jack. 

Finally torque down the scope ring screws to the optic manufacturer’s recommended values. 

 

The Fix It Sticks Bubble Level Kit:

The bubble level kit also is designed to aid in the  mounting of an optic and also requires the firearm to have a picatinny rail.

The first step in using the Scope Jack is to have your optic set into your rings and leave the screws a bit loose so the optic can rotate. 

The bubble level then then mounts to the picatinny rail by way of – describe screws. 

Place your firearm in a secure mount and rotate until the picatinny bubble level is leveled.

Once level you then place the small level on top of the elevation turret. This is done because the top of the turret should be parallel the the horizontal line in your recital, and therefore will be perpendicular to the fall of gravity.  

Then slightly rotate your scope until the small bubble level is leveled. 

Finally ensure both bubble levels are level and then torque down the scope ring screws to the optic manufacturer’s recommended values.
