Well I was excited to get my G24 in, but it doesn't want to work with my DDA. The regular dovetail works just fine, but the adjustable side won't lock in. Anyone with the same setup have any idea where I should file to make it work for me?

Because there is no standards for dovetail specs they don't interface well with that specific combo. A INVG and DDA is the ultimate setup for a PVS14. Also the INVG will also interface with the Wilcox dovetail as well as the AKA2. The PVS15/18 mod on the Rhino II also will not interface with the Wilcox shoe.

Should have texted you this, but even on my norotos invg, the non adjustable dovetail side locks in just fine, but the adjustable side doesn’t engage the lock. It still locks in JUST enough to need to engage the tab to remove it, but not by much. I was wondering what you asked myself.

I've read that others state the same about the fixed dovetail. I try it out tomorrow and post my results.

When brand new my DDA with the PVS15/18 mod on the Rhino II only clicked in completely with the non-adjustable side. The adjustable side required quite a bit of force and did not fully engage - if you pulled forward you could pull the dovetail out of the socket. It has since worn in enough to click in a little easier and has better engagement with the locking tab

Its the adjustable side shoe on the DDA that I had issues with as well, even using all Norotos components. I had to remove some material on the shoe where the PVS18 socket latch engages to get it to lock in positively, which I wasn't all that wild about having to do with a $150 part. The non-adjustable side locked in perfectly.

Yep, seems to be my issue as well. I had an issue before with a dovetail adapter on my Rhino mount too, but it originally clicked into place. This one I spent a solid 30 minutes just inserting and removing to try and get it to lock in with no change. I went ahead and ordered the Wilcox J arm with on/off.

To be fair, 1/2 of the Norotos dovetails works perfect

But at the time I ordered it from y’all (last week) I had a rhino mount and AKA2 dovetail adapter.

Or just run the TNVC NPBM for a monocular and it works for the Wilcox AND Norotos dovetail mounts

I'll put up a pic later showing you exactly where to file.

what about RNVG dovetail to norotos pvs 15/18 socket?

When I talked to Vic a couple weeks ago on the phone he mentioned wilcox and norotos were told to "play ball" together and make their stuff work together by the military.

ETA: both shoes on my DDA work fine in the pvs 15/18 socket from my rhino 2 conversion

My rhino II dovetail and Wilcox J arm work together FYI

No luck with a G24 and the non adjustable side of a DDA. Both side disconnect with very little forward pressure.
