    It is getting a little concerning (and aggravating)

    i have notice in the past when ordering stuff from like MidwayUSA, that a lot of times, the tracking number is for UPS, but once they hand it over to the Post Office, you can't track it anymore.. which sucks!

    Update as of 6:25 this morning:
    Delivery scheduled today, it’s at my local post office. Yay!
    Teslong also gave me a $30 credit.
    (hasn’t shown on credit card yet though)

    YES!!!! That's awesome on the credit. Think they need to use a more reliable, traceable shipping service. Like I said, my order from China hit LAX airport on the 1st, and died there, after 2 weeks of shipping time. But, ta-da , AMAZON to the rescue....rsbhunter

    Well, as the saying goes " you don't know what you don't know". This thing is impressive!!!! I can see cleaning sessions going on for days.... Only kidding...but WOW. For the price, I am going to buy another one and have the mirror set for a larger bore. I can see things being sold out on and off for months to come. If anyone is reading this forum, and on the fence about buying one, do it! I can't wait til I have the time to go thru the bores of my different firearms and observe the bores , leads, and rifling so that I know what's what.Again, thanks to the op for bringing this to our attention, and the members who have posted pics and video about this great item....rsbhunter

    Ordered mine last week from Amazon and received yesterday. I'm very pleased.

    I normally don't run a chamber mop after cleaning. Found some detached bronze bristles in the chamber.

    Some minor carbon/copper in bore. This barrel only has 138 rounds down it.

    Some carbon discoloration at the end of the case mouth leading into the 45° transition from neck to free bore.

    Some improvement in bore after 2nd cleaning.

    I took the 90° mirror off and took a longitudinal shot. This is the chamber shoulder transitioning into the neck. The transition from neck to free bore is in the distance.

    I'm absolutely blown away by the clarity and usefulness of this tool. Longevity will be the next hurdle to clear. But at $50 delivered (Amazon Prime), it's a no brainer to give it a shot.

    Looked on Amazon today, already out, showing the 17th availability....have been cleaning guns since 7:00 am....difference between fouled and clean is amazing!!!! I am thinking of getting different sizes of plastic tubing, maybe 1/2" long to slip OVER the cable by the camera to center it in bores larger than 22....Happy, happy, joy joy.....rsbhunter

    Makes those $1000 scopes obsolete.

    Will recommend rubber O-Rings (different thickness for different bore diameters).
    Slip one on about a 1/2" back from the head, and another 2 to 3" further back.

    (I use them on my wand style bore-scopes as well)

    Ok....WTH is this? Will start a new topic if i should? Cleanung my RRA 223 nmA4 after getting the borescope....i was warned not to look down there!!! It almost looks like etching to me, but what do i know. I have never used, or let sit in my barrel any of the nuclear chemicals...Sweets 7.62, Copper Killer, etc... have been soaking the bore with wipe out accelerator and wipe out foam....The pic is after cleaning with Bore Tech carbon cleaner and Copper cleaner.....any thoughts on what that is??? rsbhunter
