I think it came out pretty clean.

The only thing I did notice is the chin strap bands do tend to get inbetween the muff and my ear a little.
They are flat against my face so it's not really effecting much.

How do you guys get around this?

I don't. I just bent the metal arms to make them seal as best as I can. If I know I'm going to be shooting more than a couple rounds, I'll re-arrange the straps and change length so they run OVER the muffs.

I don't have any issues with noise, because I wear surefire sonic defenders under the muffs whenever I use helmet mounted muffs -- because they always seem to hurt my hearing otherwise.

I finally got a good deal on a ballistic highcut, mostly because it was black. But my krylon skill know no bounds.

Also got a great deal on a TNVC helmet dickmod. Balances really well now. And finally got to put the cover @augee sold me ages ago on a real helmet.

My first PVS-14 and helmet setup. Still learning figuring out the wants vs needs. TNVC put me on the right track though. The white phos image is unbelievable for what I need vs the rifle mounted Flir that I have as well.

I now see what all the bitching is about the J-Arm. Seems like a cheap pos compared to the optic it's holding.

Great info in this section of the forum.

I might be wrong but your admin light is on upside down I think. Not that it matters. It still works. But the battery compartment looks like it might cover a patch you out on the Velcro behind it.

It's definitely possible lol but since I'm a shifty lefty I needed it on the right side. All of the attachment points and styles are so foreign to me that I just put the sumbitch where I needed it.

Thanks for the insight. Trying to get some hog blood on this setup tonight....

Most of my optics are NV capable but I use my NV on my off eye. It works great except that I can not get a sight picture with the NV deployed. The end of the NV touches mt weapon and prevents me from getting a good sight picture through my optic. I can easily retract the NV and carry on (my helmet and Comtacs don't interfere.) So what is the SOP on this? What is the most practical way to go from NV operations to a solid target acquisition? FYI, I have this issue on many different platforms, from subguns (MP5, UMP, M10) to carbines (AK, AR, G3, Aug, Tavor etc) so I don't think it is that. Perhaps it requires an artificially high mounted optic?

Thanks!

Also, can someone tell me why my linked images show up as a link instead of an image? I used the "insert image" option.

It's what I run. Go back a page or two, you'll see my setup. FAST Bump, Norotos DDA and AKA2 arm. Worlds better than the J-Arm and Rhino mount, no rattle, and it locks in all positions. AND you get a halfway-up detent for when you're in and out of vehicles.
