Any one tried one of the Lyman bore scopes? I know it is not top of the line model but interested if my cleaning routine is working.

Lyman Bore Scope

" . . . but interested if my cleaning routine is working. "

It will do that job very well!

Maybe not the absolute best bore scope, but WAY, WAY, WAY better than nothing!

Just try not to get too 'picky' about the fine machining details that now jump out at you.

Good luck!

Don

Agree, it is worth the price. it is better than nothing. I would be up for an option at perhaps 1.5 x the price. It is Lyman or nothing unless you pay a very lot more.

I like mine and will do well for most things a borescope is used for. I caught mine on sale at Midway. after Lyman a definite increase in price. One note it will not work with 17 cal. if that matters to you

Lyman borescope is good for the price. It will tell you if you cleaning routine is working or not. There is a learning curve, and after some time passes, you might notice things you didn't see previously. It's because you didn't know exactly what you were looking for and/or recognize what you were seeing. It's a fun tool and you will learn a great deal from using it. What really made it worth the price for me is finding out what products actually work best for removing the carbon ring and fouling in the chamber / leade area. Also, what works and doesn't work for removing lead from the barrel. Using the borescope and finding products that actually work has saved me a lot of elbow grease, time, and money.

Yeah that.

Bummer Lyman doesn't make one for .17 caliber firearms that would also work with larger calibers.

I do not use the little rubber donut that they provide. I use a bore scope to guide the scope in the bore. You have a little wiggle room to get closer to the sides for a better focus on areas of interest.

I did purchase the Lyman bore scope and it did show my cleaning was not working. They say rime fire barrels only need patches and some gun oil to keep clean but not mine. I was doing that and then tried Hoppes and brushes but still lead. I have some boretech rimfire blend on order and will see how that works.
After I get the barrel clean I will monitor my cleaning so I won't have to do so much at once. I was using VFG felts and pull through after every range trip but I guess that was not enough.

I've got one and like it a lot. For the money it's worth it. Easily see fouling and carbon ring and results of cleaning. Showed me how many brush passes I need to completely remove that ring.
