Shooters improve their accuracy by using a borescope application that assists in inspecting bores of new rifles before firing to locate copper, carbon, and lead fouling after firing, and to discover defects in used firearms before they are purchased. When a favorite rifle quits shooting, the Hawkeye is used to search for the cause. Often, fouling is the problem.
Gunsmiths use the Hawkeye to diagnose malfunctions, to prove to their customers that the repair is needed, and to prove that the repair was done. Customers are amazed by images of copper and carbon fouling, the erosion caused by “hot loads,” and cleaning procedures that don’t work.
Manufacturers use the Hawkeye to check the quality of incoming barrels, to monitor machining of chambers and rifling, and for final quality inspection on the shop floor. Images captured on video can be viewed by engineering, quality control and outside vendors simultaneously.
