    I have the Lyman. The image quality is not quite as good as a high-end traditional optical bore scope, but it is good enough for examining the bore for fouling, imperfections, and erosion. I am very glad that I finally added one to my toolkit.

    Mostly curious on how well they work. This was the first one I have seen that will fit down a .22 caliber barrel. Last time I shopped couldn't find anything this small, not sure the 5.5mm linked by maxxhavoc will fit in a .22.

    It will work in a .223 and it rubs on the rifling, but not enough that it is difficult to get down the bore. It will not work in a 223 with attachments such as the 90 degree mirror

    It will not work in a 22lr.
