The RETICLE-TRU ALIGNMENT DEVICE–US Patent # 8800154. Innovated by Jerry Schmidt–the Acetal model machined by Midwest Welding and Machine, and the Aluminum model machined by Advanced Innovation–is a precision tool designed for aligning the reticle when mounting a telescopic sight to a firearm. This unique tool will accomplish the alignment task without the need for a bubble level, and without the need for a distant external reference object–in effect, the device can function as a “stand alone”. Therefore, because no external reference object is needed, the technician can mount the telescopic sight in a small room absent of windows, or even out in the field, where often there are no man-made horizontal or vertical references present–objects such as either a roofline or the corner of a building to obtain visual cues from–to align either crosswire upon to achieve a plumb or level reticle. In addition, because the device does not depend upon the use of a bubble level, the technician has no concern for inadvertantly moving the firearm off of level while working at the vise, or breaking delicate parts in the busy shop. The occasional hunter or soldier who might consider bringing the device along while out in the field, need give no concern to breaking the device, for it is comprised of a solid block of either Acetal or Aluminum, having no delicate parts that can bend or break. The RETICLE-TRU ALIGNMENT DEVICE–a tough, versatile gadget for the serious gunsmith and marksman.
The tool can be used in THREE METHODS:
The PRIMARY METHOD — Both the bottom and top indicators are utilized. The bottom and top indicators are aligned on specific index references on the central axis of the firearm. The bottom indicator may be indexed upon: references on some rifles such as the tang, the groove in the tang, or the bolt; references on a shotgun such as the receiver; references on a handgun such as the frame, or backstrap–while at the same time the top indicator may be indexed upon references such as the scope tube, elevation turret, front bell of the scope, barrel, front sight, or barrel bead.
The SECONDARY METHOD — Only the bottom indicator is utilized. The bottom indicator is aligned on a specific index reference on the central axis of the firearm. The bottom indicator may be indexed upon: references on some rifles such as the tang, the groove in the tang, or the bolt; references on a shotgun such as the receiver; references on a handgun such as the frame, or backstrap.
The AUXILIARY METHOD — The bottom flats and outboard corners are utilized. The flats or beveled corners are aligned with either a short straight-edge, or a short section of a cleaning rod that is temporarily resting on top of the mounting base in such a manner that the object is at 90 degrees to the axis of the firearm. The intial purpose of this method was to mitigate those situations where the ocular may be off-set from the central axis of the firearm, either due to errors in machining, or improperly installed “dovetail front/windage adjustable rear” style rings. However, this method also works very well with the picatinny rail system so commonly used today, and this is especially so if mounting a scope that has very high turrets, as the turrets may in some cases obscure the view of the barrel.

The SCOPE-TRU is a product that is made entirely within the state of Montana.
The SCOPE-TRU ALIGNMENT BAR–US Patent # 8745914. Innovated by Jerry Schmidt, and machined by Midwest Welding and Machine–is a precision tool designed primarily for INSTALLING and CHECKING the alignment of “dovetail front/dovetail rear” style rings; and, INSTALLING and ALIGNING “dovetail front/windage rear” style rings into their bases. By using the SCOPE-TRU ALIGNMENT BAR for these ring installations, the rings can be installed with considerable precision, such that both the front and rear rings are in nearly perfect axial alignment with each other, and in nearly perfect parallel alignment with the axis of the firearm barrel. This is especially the case when mounting the “dovetail front/windage rear” style rings. When properly aligned, each ring is subsequently “squared” at 90 degrees to the axis of the bore.
When scope rings are aligned in this manner, the scope tube itself remains stress free, and the “witness marks” or “ring kinks” so commonly seen in everyday installations on firearms are essentially eliminated. In addition, this precision parallel alignment of the “ring axis to bore axis” will result in greater long range accuracy, minimizing or eliminating “progressive long range windage error” as shooting ranges increase. Finally, this level of precision ring alignment will ultimately assure that the windage adjustment turret of the scope will remain exactly at, or very near mechanical center. It is then that the telescopic sight will offer the very best performance that it was designed for.
The SCOPE-TRU can also be used to ALIGN “windage adjustable cross-slot” style front and rear rings. These rings can be aligned with each other, while at the same time aligned so that they are in nearly perfect parallel alignment with the axis of the bore. By using these rings, the installer can more easily achieve an acceptable alignment in the horizontal plane in those cases where the receiver holes are drilled somewhat “off-center” with respect to the action’s centerline, or in those cases where the receiver contour is finished out in a manner that may cause the rings to slightly tilt–both of these are situations that will often create problems where excessive correction may be needed.
The SCOPE-TRU can also be used to quickly CHECK the potential “ring axis to bore axis alignment” of several other types of scope ring and mount systems–systems that it may not necessarily be used for in the initial installation procedure.
In addition, the SCOPE-TRU can also be used as a “trouble shooting” or “problem solving” tool where there may be issues such as ring height disparity that must be corrected if the disparity exceeds the .012 to .015 threshold.
