Stuarts Tips: I have owned and extensively used a Hawkeye optical borescope for 25 years. The 17″ version. This has been the industry standard. Not only have I used this for my own firearms but also extensively used in my Training business (Bench Rest Training). I have seen through many thousands of barrels. I have found over time that 90% of the use is mainly for looking in the first 6″ of the bores. That is the area which tells most of the story. Then 10% of time checking at the muzzle area. A borescope can be very helpful, particularly for checking fouling and erosion in the bore. Checking whether your cleaning operations are actually removing all the fouling on not. This Teslong rigid digital borescope is surprisingly very good indeed and extremely good value for money. This now makes the possibility of owning a borescope, which is normally a very expensive item, open to most shooters due to the inexpensive price point. The images are easily viewed via your phone or a laptop compared to placing your eye in an awkward position behind the optical Hawkeye scope. The Teslong unit has a flexible USB lead that is 1.5m long. The quality of the images at least equals those from a Hawkeye optical view in my opinion. The Teslong is fairly quick to connect up. Your phone or Laptop can sit on a table or bench next to the WIFI adapter and the 1.5m connection cable is flexible enough to easily let you rotate the unit inside the barrel to cover the 360 degrees.
Connecting? Download the APP to your phone (or compatible tablet) which is called Mo-view in APP Store or Google Play Store. This is a free APP. Turn on the Teslong WIFI adapter, wait for the WIFI symbol to show up and then on your phone connect to that WIFI network in your phone settings. Each WIFI adapter has its own specific address and will show up on your list as “WIFI Cam xxxxx”. Once a connection is achieved you then plug in the borescope cable (USB) to the end of the WIFI adapter unit. This turns on the borescope and LED lights turn on. On your phone open the APP (called Mo-View) and the live images will appear.
From within the APP you can also choose to take a photo, or video also.
The other Teslong borescopes are 26″ long. I also bought one to test out. It works just the same but being 26″ long is more awkward to handle and use compared to this compact 10″ unit. It’s also more expensive. This compact 10″ borescope and it’s box is easy to pack and take to the range with you too. The only disadvantage is you get to see maybe 8″ of the front of the bore and 10″ from the muzzle end so you miss out of some area in the middle of most rifle barrels. But in my experience the advantages of compact size, ease of use and price outweigh that only disadvantage. Especially since in my 25 years experience using the 17″ Hawkeye I rarely look at the very middle anymore.
I recommend it.
