Borescope

The recent few posts made me wonder if you guys have checked out the Teslong bore scope. If not, you owe yourself to get one, best $50 you'll spend for barrel inspections and cleaning routine validation. 8-)

I have been wanting one of those for some time now. The price point on others have kept me from pulling the trigger:) Almost afraid to get one as a few barrels have seen some heat from excessive shot strings in dog towns.

YUP, we have one similar.
Nice to know whats going on inside BUT what'cha going to do about it?
Not shoot the gun?
Some powders and brands of bullets are a problem and if you wanted to extend the life you may change something.
My guns are tools when they don't cut the mustard I replace them or the barrels,
DO to the increasing cost of energy, Gas,and Electricity. The Down turn in the economy.

I've been wanting to get something like this for a while. I can see down the barrel of the .50 muzzleloader pretty easily, but the 7mm and .308 less so. Thanks!

Image quality is on par with a Hawkeye ($750 for least expensive model) and better than the Lyman ($230). I have the flexible shaft version but a rigid tube version is available for $70 (came out after I bought mine).

Had wanted a Hawkeye for years, could never justify the $$$. Thought about the Lyman when it hit the market, and even though it was more economical, I wasn't impressed with image quality. Hawkeye image quality for $50 sealed the deal for me.
