My cell phone has a flashlight app.
3M doesn’t make Velcro, Velcro does. 3M makes hook and loop.
Congrats on the naughty nods though!
See, I’ve got the opposite problem. I’ve got two ballistic helmets and no nods....
Going to have rectify that. But right now they are nothing more than a high priced toy I’d use occasionally.
Kinda like those ballistic helmets
Not disappointed in performance in the least. Too much cloud cover to look at stars and the residential neighborhood has too much light to really give it a go but I got to test everything and fine tune the fit. If it's within your means it's a game changer in capability let alone the fun factor.
I'm going to set up the ballistic helmet tomorrow night.
Like a kid with a new toy on Christmas.
Well, they were sales samples/demos....so all I had to do to get them was work....
I have a bump helmet, just need the NVG’s. What’s a reasonable brand?
How much do NVG setups like these (the ones posted in this thread) cost?
If you go the route he did, and started from nothing, Helmet, mount, Green phosphor PVS-14 kit. I would budget 2750-3K before sales/buying used.
Dual tubes like the RNVG will run you about 4-6. ANVIS like what I posted will run you a bit more as there specialty products.
PM me and we’ll get you sorted out when you’re ready.
Will do. Thanks.
Wow, nice toys.
There are a handful of American companies that are putting out quality product. AK_Stick has some good information to get you started. I spent about a week watching YT and reading everything I could on the subject before committing. Essentially you want a company with a good reputation that has been in business for awhile and isn't going anywhere. Pretty much like anything else. Then you need to figure out your budget, think of a number between 2.5K-40K Then wait for a sale or promotion when your budget and desired tube pops up.
As mentioned above, this was right at 3K minus the Surefire light. I didn't need the helmet but it came as a package deal and buying the tube alone wasn't much less.
My LGS (owned by a LEO) had a deal a few months ago on FLIR Thermals so I picked up a Themosight Pro PT 233.
It’s mounted on a dedicated “night weapon” although it has quick mounts so I can use it as a hand held and not compromise zero.
It’s great for picking out any living creatures in pitch darkness......... but I should have been less impulsive and gone with the one of NV rigs you guys are referring.
Funny thing FLIR has now stopped selling to the gen pop to focus on the military and police demand. They have promised to provide service to legacy customers
Warranty service till your warranty is up.
They are closing out the line and getting out of the thermal weapon sight game completely.
The PTS is a solid entry level scope though.
Thanks. I didn't know that.
I called them when it was first announced. I should have asked more specific questions.
I love toys, those are great!
I wanna play!!
Grab all your toys and we'll meet up at AK_Stick's house
I'll be there!!
I'll bring my night vision helmet, too...
