Hawkeye Borescope for Shooters

New, limited-edition, low-cost Hawkeye borescope kits are being offered by Gradient Lens Corporation. For years, gunsmiths have been using borescopes to diagnose malfunctions in firearms. Borescopes are slender tubes filled with fiber optics to light the subject and glass optics to relay an image.

The Limited Edition 17-inch Hawkeye Precision Borescope Kit contains the borescope, a 90-degree adapter (which allows the shooter to see lands and grooves inside the barrel) and the light source. The borescope is focus-preset for 20/20 or corrected vision in a .22/.30 barrel and is operator adjustable. The kit is for any shooter who is seriously concerned about accuracy. The 17-inch kit retails for $495, and the 7-inch kit is $395.

Gradient Lens Corporation developed the Hawkeye Precision Borescope in 1986 for the shooting market, and it has become very popular among benchrest shooters, varmint hunters and firearms manufacturers. Today, gunsmiths use borescopes for diagnostic purposes, firearms manufacturers for quality control purposes and bullet manufacturers in conjunction with ballistics programs. Borescopes are used to identify fouling, erosion and tool marks that significantly affect accuracy.
