A borescope for a rifle is a small camera that can go inside the barrel for inspections purposes. Maintaining rifles can be a chore when you need to take everything apart and still cannot see clearly into the barrel. A borescope removes steps by allowing access to the smallest parts of a rifle with ease. Even better, the devices can take both images and video for better diagnostics.
Borescopes with a screen include a portable device with a screen for visuals. With the included screen, you do not need to connect the device or worry about cords; simply turn it on and get started fixing your rifle. They are useful and multi-purpose diagnostic tools with either a flexible or rigid camera at the tip. Add in ring light at the tip for even better visibility for diagnosing, making this an exceptional tool to care for your weapons with a smart investment.
A borescope can help to inspect guns before purchase, make sure the weapon is clean, identify areas of fouling in the barrel, check for defects, and inspect the insides of cases and other components. In addition, the camera provides crisp, clear, and up-close views inside of smaller items. Overall, a borescope can save you time, money, and energy as it cuts the workload down dramatically when it comes to cleaning and repairs.
Turn on the included screen and make sure it’s fully charged. The borescope uses plug-and-play to make it easy to use. Once you turn the device on, you are ready to go without internet access. Insert the borescope into the rifle, slowly taking your time and wait for the camera to come into focus. While in use, take photos or video along with inspecting the device. After, wash the borescope and store all the pieces in a storage container in a cool, dry location.

As the borescope includes a screen, you need to use the included screen to take images, and then you can remove the micro SD card and insert it into your laptop to view the images and videos. If you prefer to view all the images on a larger screen, consider getting a USB rifle borescope as these can connect to a laptop with an included USB cord.
You can use a gun borescope for non-gun inspections, but they are optimized for looking inside a gun barrel with a focal distance of ½ to 1 inch, so it won’t work for all applications. The side-view mirrors are best for up-close surface inspections and won’t have as wide of a field of view as our dual-lens camera probes. Gun borescopes are typically rigid probes because that makes them easier to handle and turn inside the barrel, but it’s not a requirement. Our regular inspection endoscopes are suitable for gun inspection so long as they fit down the barrel. Single-lens camera probes will work the best because they include a right-angle mirror accessory. The right-angle camera on our dual camera lenses will NOT work well to inspect the flutes inside of a rifle barrel because they usually are too close to the lens and the focus will be blurry.ntent
While it may be possible to rent a gun borescope, we do not offer that service and believe it is better to simply buy one. Our entry-level USB pistol borescopes start around $50 and will work with any Windows PC, Mac OSX computer, or Android mobile device - so they are not expensive to own.
Yes, you can find the 5-Mirror Set of caliber-specific mirrors on our accessory page. Teslong borescopes usually come with a 0.20-inch diameter mirror to fit .22 caliber or larger barrels. While these mirrors will fit in larger barrels just fine they will have some slop and move around, which can affect focus and image quality. To get the best focus and see the largest area we offer the 5-Mirror Set designed to inspect .20, .243, .30, .38, and .40 caliber barrels.
