A friend of a friend of a friend is selling a used VQ Lightweight THM barrel and I'm helping my cousin spruce up his 10/22 on a short budget.

What should I be looking for as signs of damage? (ie: improper cleaning via rod damage, etc.)

If it was only cleaned with a brush once or twice, it might be very difficult to see.

If you have a borescope, you can use it. You'll probably see lots and lots of tiny little scratches if a bronze brush has been used. They may even appear as large scratches.

That's about all that I can help out...

Good luck! :D

After you clean it out look through it. Make sure there's enough light on the other end ;)
Check for what looks like rings. If you see a ring it could be damage from firing the gun with an obstruction in the bore.
