Been looking for one of these. But I want one for iPad/iPhone. I'm addicted to the portability of these devices.

This is a nice one, tho. Hmmmmm, decisions. Thanks!

I had a cheap one from years ago.  Wasn't enough resolution to see much.  This looks a lot better.  Pretty cool.  If it's on Accurate Shooter it must be pretty good.

I'm afraid to see what my barrels look like on the inside.

No problem Bushido......... this thing can also do colonoscopy on you.

Let's see what's inside your barrels............ :D

Thanks Ren.

Mine came today.
Tried it out and looks really good and clear.

I haven't seen the Hawkeye borescope at about $750, but for $50 this looks good.

I've been looking at Ren's first posting regarding the accurateshooter website as well as the Teslong Forum Thread which is a link in the article.
Gotta look at lots of barrels to figure out what to look for.......... lead fouling, copper fouling, rounded lands, etc.

I agree. Other than determining how much carbon is built up in my grooves or replacing the barrel, what good is it?

determining the presence of a carbon ring which degrades accuracy significantly
if your cleaning regimen is adequate
gas port erosion
WHEN to replace a barrel and when NOT to.

Tempted also.

So if my barrel does look like this but I'm getting 0.3 moa, what does it mean?

It means you're also using shitty ammo that compensates for the shitty barrel. They cancel each other out.

I got to figure out how to cut the glare by adjusting the brightness with the thumb switch, and screwing/unscrewing the mirror head for focusing.

When looking at the bore, there are dust particles all over the mirror no matter how well I clean the tiny mirror with lens wipes..........

The dust, coupled with the glare diminishes the image quality.

It surely doesn't look like the images in this blog...........
