Default Wtk has anyone every seen a ordnance tool borescope in a box

Hello all,purchased a ordnance tool I believe. It is a borescope that has ordnance marking along with numbers and what operation numbers it is to be used for.
It has H&R markings that makes me believe it my have been for the M14 maybe ?
Could also be used to inspect the M1 GARAND also. Thanks for any help
It is missing its power supply. It uses a 2.5 vdc power supply.
I try and add some pictures tomorrow, thanks for looking, Peter

That is not the type I was thinking of. I have one from Rock Island Arsenal, serial number 10. They are quite rare. It's thought that only 25 were made back in 1947.

Do you think for the M1 or the M14 ?
It is missing the battery box though
Thanks for the reply Ted

The drawing number on the box is an M14 barrel drawing.

That's what I thought, by the nomenclature. Looks like from Harrington & Richardson. Thanks for the update

Box appear to have a date of July 11, 1962. So that was designed for inspecting M14 bores, as the M1 program had ended by then, but I assume for rebuild purposes it could have been used. (H&R didn’t rebuild M1s, but they made M14s circa 1960-1963).

I'd be curious to look at the operations to complete an M14 barrel.
By the markings, it appears to be used to inspect the following operations:

"Oper 345, 475, 510, 512 520"
