    NM-300-2H Night Optics D-300M-2HP, Gen 2+ Night Vision Monocular

    Our Night Optics D-300M-2HP, Gen 2+ Night Vision Monocular
    Image Intensifier Tube Type: High Performance Generation 2
    Image Tube Summary: A High Performance Generation 2 Image Tube is the best Gen 2 image tube available. It gives vastly superior performance than the lessor Gen 2 MS (Mil-Spec) or Gen 2 ST (Standard) image tubes. The performance is very close to Gen 3, however the image tube life is usually quite a bit shorter than a Generation 3 image tube so when available in a similar price range we recommend going with the Gen 3 unit.

    Product Info:
    These great optics will yield close to Gen 3 performance at a $1000 less cost. One of the absolute best buys in night vision, our D-300 Monocular with the high performance image intensifier tube will not let you down. Bright clear images are achieved without even the need to turn on the built in illuminator on most nights allowing you to operate completely passively! Our most versatile system can be enhanced with a wide range of optional accessories to meet any mission requirement.

    Standard features such as Mil Spec optics, high-power, multi-stage Infrared Illuminator, and internal low battery and infrared indicators are packaged in a compact, rugged, weather resistant housing.

    Optional Accessories include weapon and helmet mounts, headgear, magnification lenses, red dot/holographic sights and camera/camcorder adapters.

    Great versatility, extraordinary features and affordability make the D-300 the best value in the night vision marketplace and the choice of Law Enforcement professionals and private users who demand exquisite performance, friendly controls and easy system customization for multiple modes of deployment.

    NM-P14-3S PVS-14 Night Vision Monocular, Gen 3 STM (Night Optics)

    Our PVS-14 Monocular, Gen 3 STM (Night Optics)
    Image Intensifier Tube Type: Standard Generation 3 with Manual Gain Control

    Image Tube Summary: The Standard Generation 3 image tube is an excellent value. Although these are nice image tubes they are typically not as good as the Gen 3A (Alpha or A Grade), however the Gen 3 Standard allows you to get Gen 3 performance at a great, great price!

    Noteworthy Features: Manual Gain Control
    Feature Summary: The Manual Gain Control is one of the best performance enhancing options you can have on a night vision device. This feature gives the user the ability to override the automatic gain control that is standard on most night vision units, thus allowing the manual gain adjustment to boost light gain beyond where the built-in auto gain would go in very low light situations. In essence it gives the user control to "tweak the brightness" of the device to the users preference based on current light conditions which will often result in resolving objects that were too washed out or too dark to previously be identified.

    Product Info:
    Our PVS-14 STM is the most affordable real PVS-14 Gen 3 on the market. It is equipped with a high quality new (not used or repotted) image tube. These PVS-14 units have manual gain control for improved performance in varying light conditions. Currently used by the US Armed Forces, the PVS-14  Monocular is the number one choice for conducting combat operations that include dismounted terrain navigation in extremely low light conditions. When outfitted with the proper accessories our PVS-14 units are capable of almost any night time optics task. Versatility, durability, and awesome performance sum up why these PVS-14's are our most popular pieces of night vision equipment.

    The highly versatile PVS-14 system can be used as a hand-held or hands-free single eye goggle, or as a night vision weapon system when coupled to a daytime close quarters battle sight.
    Simple user controls include a 3-position switch (OFF/ON/Momentary and constant IR). The system's Generation 3 image tube features Automatic Brightness Control and is protected by fully-automated sensors that shut off the unit within seconds if accidentally exposed to bright light. Sophisticated electronics turn off the PVS-14 when removed from the head or helmet mount or when shifted into to the UP position.

    Light weight, rugged and waterproof, the NO/ PVS-14 is a powerful performer for use in confined as well as open spaces.
    Optional Headgear is available for these units for "hands free Operation".

    Included items:
    • Hard Case
    • Sacrificial Filter
    • Demist Shield
    • Lens Tissue
    • 1 x AA Battery

    PVS-14 Night Vision Monocular, Gen 3 AGM-HS Hand Select (Night Optics) NM-P14-3G-HS | NightVision4Less PVS-14 Night Vision Monocular, Gen 3 AGM-HS Hand Select (Night Optics)

    Our PVS-14 Night Vision Monocular, Gen 3 AGM-HS (Night Optics)
    Image Intensifier Tube Type: ITT Pinnacle / Autogated Gen 3 - Hand Select with Manual Gain Control (includes data sheet)
    Image Tube Summary: Simply put our ITT Pinnacle image tubes are the elite level of night vision image intensifier tubes. These tubes are what is currently being used by our US Military and are currently available for civilian use, however export of these units from the U.S. like all Gen 3 equipment is strictly prohibited without a proper export license. These ITT Pinnacle image tubes are equipped with autogated power supplies that allow these units to excel in all low light conditions regardless of artificial "light pollution "that exists in urban areas. This autogating greatly reduces "halo" around any light sources and also eliminates the need for the unit to go into light-overload safety shutdown when exposed to excessive light. If you will be using your night vision device in urban areas or in "light polluted" situations than this image tube will double your night vision capability!
    Hand Select Quality: You wanted the best well we've got the best! Our Hand Select Image Tubes are spectacular! With a guaranteed signal to noise ratio of 27.00 or higher, along with their exceptional image clarity they don't get any better than these. In fact only a very small percentage of our image tubes make our Hand Select cut. With our Hand Select image tubes you can expect superior performance in the darkest environments thus giving you longer range and better resolution in very low light.
    Noteworthy Features: Manual Gain Control
    Feature Summary: The Manual Gain Control is one of the best performance enhancing options you can have on a night vision device. This feature gives the user the ability to override the automatic gain control that is standard on most night vision units, thus allowing the manual gain adjustment to boost light gain beyond where the built-in auto gain would go in very low light situations. In essence it gives the user control to "tweak the brightness" of the night vision device to the users preference based on current light conditions which will often result in resolving objects that were too washed out or too dark to previously be identified.
