    After reading the FB cook off thread....

    I got to wondering since my musket is one of the ones that supposedly had the breech threads incorrect. So I looking into confirming one way or another if my musket chamber was incorrect. A buddy suggested a USB borescope. I checked it out on Amazon and yup, for about $16 you can get a bore/endoscope that will hook to your android phone via usb. Here's what I saw-

    For a couple bucks and an android phone, this ain't half bad.....

    I bought one of these too. The first one lasted about 15 minutes. They sent me a replacement and so far so good. It is fun to look down the barrels of your revolvers and such to see if you have misalignments.

    Money making potential.

    Does anyone else see a chance to make a couple of bucks here?

    You can sit in your camper or sit at Sutler's, your choice.

    Neat pictures!!

    One could also use this to check if a weapon that has suddenly lost it's accuracy has a skirt stuck down in them thar lands!
