I have seen on here and other places pictures of bp barrels lit up like daylight.I have used small flashlight and even a laser.I know if breech plug was out would work.Non removable breech plug.I am trying to look at a thirty year old barrel that finally has had a conical removed.It stayed that way so long because a puller was screwed in and flat broke off.
I tryed digital flash camera. Solid black output.

I made a light from aluminum tubing, 2 AAA batteries. Put a foil plug in negative end, crimped bulb end to hold and make contact to a flashlight bulb. Just a hair too big for a 45 cal but can thin the tubing so it will fit. Painted the very tip of the bulb black so it doesn't have a glare.

I bought the endoscope, and it is a good unit BUT it doesn't focus on the rifling. Brown fuzz is all I see, and a sharp image of flat breechplug end when I get there. Anyone heard any tips for getting them to work?

You can get tweezers with an integral torch, you take the torch out and works for .45 and above, about 2 or 3 dollars off eBay

I bought a six pack of lighted nocks for arrows on amazon for like $12. They work great and will fit as small as a 32 cal rifle. You can turn them on and off and they have a 20 hour battery life each. Should last for years.
