Digital endoscope in a Pedersoli 45/70 barrel

I made this short video with my new toy: a 7mm USB endoscope. I have been using my Pedersoli Rolling Block 45/70 for 7 years now for sport shooting and hunting. The rifle is very accurate indeed. I was happy to see that the Pedersoli bore is really mirror bright on the lands and in the grooves as well. I was also happy to see that after so many joyful shooting days the rifling is still sharp and clean. The leading is not really an issue for me thanks to the nice polishing of the bore. It is enough to clean it with a patch saturated with Roble only once a year. The bore is so smooth, only a a few drops of gun oil obstruct the light.
