If you’re a gunsmith you cannot afford to not have a Hawkeye Borescope. First, you will quickly acquire an intimate knowledge of the effects of your tooling and work. What is the best way to set up a barrel and hold a reamer while cutting a chamber for the cleanest and truest results.? What effects have your reamer sharpening had? What is the bore finish really like in the new barrels you’re receiving? How does one maker’s barrels compare with another?
The Hawkeye Borescope can view the interior of more than just the bore, you can also view inside the rifle bold to see if the striker or spring is making contact and dragging where it should not. You can see the effects of polishing a chamber or sizing die. You can quickly determine if an accuracy problem is due to some anomaly in the steel, bore fouling, or throat wear. Unlike other gunsmiths, you will be able to provide your client with visual proof of what is wrong with their firearm.
