I am a firm believer in the quality of Leupold optics, but I'll admit that I was a little skeptical when I first heard the concept of how this device works. Finally, curiosity got the best of me and I sent off about $30 to get one. It was just a matter of time .... I just had to know how well it would work.
As usual, I was impressed by
the Leupold quality, but the real proof always comes after the testing. The picture at the left is
almost the exact size of this device and it is small enough to easily fit in your pocket. This bore sighting tool
attaches itself to your muzzle by its magnetic base. It works on rifles, pistols and shotguns; and it
doesn't require batteries or barrel arbors.
Caution: I recently heard about a shooter that forgot to remove one of these magnetic bore sighting tools before shooting. His rifle blew up, and his barrel was pealed back like a banana. He survived, but it cost him a trip to the emergency room. This is actually quite easy to do, because when your scope is adjusted to a higher power . . . . you can see right through this optical device as if it wasn't even there. It's a great tool . . . . but be careful.
