    M1 bore, cheap bore scope fun





    above is the bore from my JCG build with criterion barrel that I shot in matches last year
    this is after a nice deep clean....it was not to bad


    and below is a the LMR I took off the rifle that I installed the criterion on. I wanted this LMR to shoot but it just never did. Best I could muster even with reloads was tad under 5 moa...

    The bore scope is just the cheap 14$ scope you plug into your phone or computer. Bought mine on amazon

    That would be a good buy for some of us...and handy. Specially for business, looking at a rifle someone wants to sell you...

    just be sure it works with your phone. they tell you how to check if it will work. I have a android LG destiny and it wont work with that but works with my home computer and pluggable digital viewer on my HP computer.... warning its a cheap piece but it works well enough for my needs

    this is the one I got it has the smallest head I could find at 5.5mm it almost fits in my AR

    This one works well:

    5 5 mm 6 LED US | eBay ... SwHnFVrmD6

    Well, now that link takes you to a full page of scopes the top one is the one I use, it is 5m long in case you have a long barrelled target rifle....https://www.milsurps.com/images/smilies/lol.gif

    OK, I'll be aware to read the fine print. I'd use with computer anyway. Phone would be handy for gunshow or shop.

    Wondering if getting the "lumps" out of the LMR barrel might not help. The barrel from my first Garandicon is hideous front chamber to muzzle, but it still shoots very well indeed! Pitted from one end to the other it is. But no build up of fouling or rust scale.


    My old Hawkeye borescope with right angle attachment would be super cool if it had a way to do photos. But it's proven to me that bore appearance often has little to do with accuracy unless you're going under MOA. And not always then.

    Yes very true... I have a friend who has a really nice bore scope I believe it's a Hawkeye also. He's can view 90' and you can adjust the focus extremely well. He looked in my 513t and I should not have....but it still will shoot MOA
    I will say this....If you like how your bore looks looking down the muzzle with your thumb finger nail in the chamber to reflect light end it right there....
    Even with this cheap scope I tell people your mint barrel won't look so mint any more.
    So don't bore scope you rifles it might change your feelings for them....

    Here is a type 99 I picked up a while back. A quick look with the convention eye down the pipe it just looks dirty...
    The scope shows its well worn at the throat end. I will be cleaning it up later.
