SHOT Show Highlight: All-New Lyman Sights & Tools

posted on January 23, 2020


The Lyman family of brands offer everything from reloading equipment and snap caps to grip sleeves and knives. Among the new products introduced at SHOT Show 2020 by Lyman are a second generation of the company’s Borecam digital borescope, the AccuSight pistol sight installation tool and Saddle Sights, a new line of ghost-ring shotgun sights.

Borecam Pro Wireless Borescope

The Lyman Borecam is a digital borescope that allows shooters to visually inspect their guns’ barrels for rifling and chamber damage, and while it is a capable enough tool in its own right, Lyman felt that the original could be improved upon. New for 2020 is the Borecam Pro, an update that betters its predecessor in several meaningful ways.

First off, according to Lyman, the resolution of the new version is many times sharper than that of the old unit. Secondly, whereas the Borecam could only take still images, the Borecam Pro also has the capacity to record videos of your barrel’s interior.

The original was also hamstrung by being physically tethered to its small monitor, and not only is the new version cordless, but it does away with the monitor altogether, instead allowing the images to be viewed on your smartphone or tablet via the Borecam Pro’s app. Compatible with firearms with bore diameters of 0.20” and greater, the updated borescope will retail for $340.


Lyman’s new AccuSight takes the frustration out of installing new dovetail-style sights atop your handgun or just re-adjusting the ones that are already on there. CNC machined from billet aluminum, the AccuSight features four horizontal and one vertical clamp to accommodate a host of different slide patterns.

A large handle provides plenty of torque for pushing even the most stubborn of sights, and the AccuSight works with both drift-adjustable front and rear sights. MSRP: $130

Saddle Sights

Sold under the TacStar name, the new Saddle Sights series are an easy, reversible way of installing ghost-ring sights atop your favorite shotgun without the need for a gunsmith. Made from durable polymer, the rear sight installs using the gun’s existing trigger assembly pin holes, while the front sight locks in place using a non-marring clamping block.

Offered for both the Remington 870 and the Mossberg 500/590 patterns, the $45 Saddle Sights are adjustable for both windage and elevation, and the front sight is dimensioned for clearance with extended tubular magazines.
