Bore scope
« on: October 27, 2021, 08:57:35 PM »
I picked up a used 77 Sharps rifle and when I ran my first patch through I picked up a lot of gray smears, Lead, and my Hawkeye bore scope went under because a cat played with it and it rolled off the bench. Yes the cat is still walking around :D
I looked on Amazon for a replacement because of the repair cost of the Hawkeye and I found this.

https://www.amazon.com/Teslong-Borescope-Wireless-Side-View-Semi-Rigid/dp/B0813D65MD/ref=sr_1_19?crid=XZFKV95Z8XGY&dchild=1&keywords=bore+scopes+rifles&qid=1635380214&sprefix=bore+scope%2Caps%2C103&sr=8-19

Advertisement and ratings looked good so I ordered it. I cant say nothing but good things about this tool. It's sharp photo's and videos both with the angle mirror of straight look down.
I use it with my iPhone or the computer.
It also is long enough that I can reach the bottom of my 42" barreled Southern Mountain flint rifle and see the Ventliner sticking to far through and a fairly clean breach plug. This is really a surprise for as many years that I been shooting this rifle for it being this clean.

The first photo is looking down the southern rifle. The second is the lead smear in the 77 Sharps and the last is looking down in a shell case. [ Invalid Attachment ]  [ Invalid Attachment ]  [ Invalid Attachment ]

Rob,
A friend of mine after seeing mine ordered one that is not WIFI for less that is just as good but it needs to be plugged into the computer or phone.
Sure id nice to see the full length of a front stuffer.

This low cost scope is in my opinion better then my Hawkeye was. It has a lot more uses.
You can see how the case fits the chamber if your a cartridge shooter with out drilling a hole through the primer pocket
Also it gives you a good feeling to see you got the lead out of a rifle you just bought from a GG shooter and no pits under the lead fouling.  :D

It works both ways, WiFi or hooked up with the supplied connectors.
I  don't think you will be disappointed.
