Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Something I can recommend

#1 Post by HectorFuego » Thu Jan 02, 2020 5:04 pm

Got Teslong borescope for Christmas. Cool tool that plugs into the USB port on my computer. They are about $50 on Amazon. I tried it on my Winchester 69A bolt action .22 which has a 25" barrel. With the bolt removed, I was able to scope the thing going in from the breach all the way to the muzzle with a little room to spare. Picture quality is good and you can view in real time or take pictures to archive.

If you can't kill it with a 30-06 you ain't in North America.

Could you take a screen shot and show some of the views. Is the rifling too close or can you get a nice distance view down the bore or just a small section? Does it have adjustments to alter the amount of bore length to view? What model is it?
Is it this one?

To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.

That looks like the one I have.

The rifling is pretty close due to the 45 degree mirror, but it might be possible to remove the mirror and look down the bore - mirror just screws on. I've taken some pics but since photobucket decided not to play nice, I don't know how to post them. Also, they look better view on the screen in real time than they do when I snap them.

I have the same unit & like it a lot.
It works either length ways, without the mirror, or to one side with it. For sideways use you simply screw in or unscrew the mirror for best focus. This varies with bore size.
It has 2 parts, a rigid rod with camera head & adjustable light, & a flexible cable that attaches to the computers USB.
You go to the website & download the 2 apps in a couple of minutes.
The rod is plenty long enough to run along a full 25" (plus the bolt raceways in the receiver) of an Enfield o4 Mk1 so its plenty long enough for lots of uses.

Here's my video of my first attempt at using it. You simply slide it or rotate it to see anywhere in the bore you're interested in.
Length ways has a narrow band of focus, sideways is IMO more useful, but both work. Pardon the jerky movement this was my first effort with a little practice its much smoother.

Great video, Tommy. That's pretty much what it looks like in action.
