NVO PVS-14 Gen 3, Mil-Spec Green
The PVS-14 Night Vision Monocular System is the most versatile night vision monocular available today. It is currently in use with all branches of the United States Military as well as many Law Enforcement Agencies. It can be used handheld, weapon mounted or helmet mounted. It is also the preferred night vision optic for many foreign NATO forces.
It allows the user to view their surroundings in full Gen 3 night vision detail while maintaining their natural vision in their unaided eye. The PVS-14 can easily be weapon mounted behind most collimated and reflex daytime optics. Some common examples include Trijicon ACOG, Aimpoint and Eotech Systems.
Gain control allows the user to adjust the brightness of the unit so that he or she can have the perfect balance of night vision clarity without a blinding excess of light. The PVS-14 also has an onboard IR illuminator for use in extremely dark environments at short range.
The units are extremely well built and carry a 10 year warranty. Gen 3 image intensifier tubes have an average life span exceeding 10,000 hours of continuous use before any noticeable performance degradation. This means that the unit will likely last more than the lifetime of the average user.

“Skullcrusher” style headset, 2 brow pads, J-Arm headset adapter, demist shield, sacrificial lens filter, daylight filter, rubber eye cup, shoulder strap, soft carrying case, lens cleaning paper, operator’s manual, and neck cord. 10 year warranty.
