Default Galil SAR Barrel Colonoscopy

Have you checked your barrel's rectum? Is it over 40 YO?


My old barrel scope dies a couple months ago so I picked this up for $20......Ive used the hell out of it and it hasn't broke yet, so I figured I share. I kinda wish I got the bluetooth model but this works ok on my phone or laptop. Its got a 16 foot length.

Its a great bore scope and you can take video easy and adjust the light....Kinda makes it nice if you selling a barrel to a skeptic.

Other things Ive used it for...

Finding the clog in my house Vacuum (In the walls)
looking inside the sparkplug hole of my engine cylinders

Looking in the Kitchen drain for wifey lost ring....(nope not there )

Voyeur hot neighbor (well not yet )

Yeah Im bored at work

Kinda sucks seeing the pitting, ah well.

Man I feel like watching Doctor Who now

Yeah....resolution is really good....I was going really fast with the camera....the light was low....these come in handly for allot of things.....I have allot of older barrels and some you really need this to tell how good or bad they are...Galil SAR barrels for late 1970s are known for really smooth throats...while the early to mid 1980s are known for pitting from the gas hole forward like this one in the video....the 1980s barrels also will pit bad on the outside surface mostly forward of Gasblock and also at chamber.

1978 1979 SAR barrels seem to be the best aged as far as holding up. They also have what seems to me the best chrome lining.......

I know I know...yadda yadda yadda

Got mine! Excellent resolution, LED light output is easily adjustable and water resistant. The only negatives I see are: Not compatible with IPhone (I think?), not compatible with any of my 5.45x39 rifle barrels.
Thanks Mullicrk!
