    I have had one of the Apple compatible models for several months and love it. It is very easy to use and produces a good image. In the past I have used the Hawkeye optical bore scope and the Lyman borescope with the attached video screen. The Teslong produces as good an image as the Hawkeye combined with the ability to record the image, at 10% of the cost. Much better resolution than the Lyman.

    They work great, you will not be disappointed . This is not a great example, quality can be way better than this pic.

    A bore light can make it hard to see how rifle bores are. Looking forward to the camera.

    You will love your Teslong scope. Within a week I had it down the barrel of everything I own just doing inspections. It is a great way to see how clean your regimen is.

    I will caution you two things about owning a borescope. 1) it magnifies everything. So you will see something small like a hair and it will look like a crack. Doubt what you see so you don't jump to conclusions. 2) If it isn't broken, don't fix it. If you have something that shoots well and accurately, don't jump to replacing a barrel because you saw some throat erosion or something on the scope.

    It's due in tomorrow. Thanks for the tips. Im curious to how bad my mosin bore is i can see a lot of what i call cross hatching. Just looking though it from the ceiling light. It shoots great with tula ammo though. Im trying to develop some lighter loads for it. But not getting anywhere. PPU ammo don't do too good in it, Their bullets are .310. The tula is .311.But the kick kills me. And i start flinching. I did load some 150 grain .311 speer bullets tonight. With 42 grains of IMR 4895. My 1893 Argentine Mauser shoots well with .311 123 grain bullets with 14 grain of red or green dot. Nice light load. But the mosin does not like them.

    I have one and like it. I use it more as a curiosity. As stated above if it not broke dont go and changing barrels because of something you saw.

    Ok got some pics of the mosin bore. It sure does magnify the image. I can see pitting. And some deposits?

    It was pretty hard getting the right app to work on my phone. The version that works with Android 10 and up wasn't on the Google play store and you have to find it elsewhere. So as long as you have one device that uses it, that should be enough. If you look closely at the USB plug that fits into your PC, it should have a tab where it folds down to a micro-usb. It was quite a surprise seeing that on mine when I got it. If the connector looks like a normal USB plug, you may not have it.

    Adjust your mirror a little in or out to get a better image. All I can tell is you have some build up on the lands. Maybe from corrosive ammo.

    All the mirrors are the same, because they break easily. Adjusting how close they are to the camera is useful for looking at specific spots with different calibers. Flip through your instruction manual. There should be some diagrams in there to explain the focus length of the mirrors easier.

    I noticed the light can be adjusted too. And i have it working on my phone too now. Im planing on taking some of my wheel guns out for a spin. I'll take some before and after cleaning pics too.

    The Teslong is worth it. It'll drive you mad though so be ready. Sometimes you don't know what you can't see :)

    It sure is handy. I been on a cleaning mission with my milsurps. What i thought was pitting in my mosin. Turned out to be fouling. I still have what i call high spots. But they are also getting less and less. Here is pics i took the other day. 1st one is the mosin and the other the 1891 mauser.

    I have that same scope & it's great for the money.
    Before that I was using a wireless scope that sends the image to the phone over wifi. Too expensive, too complicated, too fat to fit a .22 barrel and the image wasn't as good as the $40 Teslong.
