It doesn't feel like the blemishes were post-production, but I don't know enough to say that for sure.

Here's an image: https://i.ibb.co/6XW51gV/IMG20230118025657.jpg

You can see the vague honeycomb pattern I was talking about in the sky. In any case, I'm not hoping for any further information, just sharing the image because tubes are cool :)

Thank you again for your thoughts.

Looks to perform like a very nice tube. I would just use and enjoy it. Lots of NV snobs are all about high spec tubes with data sheets. I have those tubes but really enjoy my no name bargain tubes that just work and work well for a fraction of the price. Nice tube !

No contract number but my info says it is Omni V and very late production. It is milspec but missing contract number. When you have it powered put your ear up against scope and tell me if you hear a faint whine. Should be a nice tube. I don't believe it to be gated.

New to the NV game - I've done some digging but can't find much info. If anyone can help ID/confirm them that would be greatly appreciated!

Tube 1:
ITT
272069-8
DC 0917

Tube 2:
MX10160C/AVS-6
ID NO. 13547-277177
EXP. NOV21
CAD 1840
CAGE 13567

No clue about the first tube besides seeing MUM14 tubes marked KM 272069-8. For the second tube I think its a OMNI7 and I know 10160C is a "high-performance" tube.

Thank you in advance!

Edit: found out that Tube 1 is a civilian tube. This thread is very helpful once I read through all the posts lol.

Here's a fun one - ITT F9801A (F4796)



The tube is mysteriously lablelled "Special tube" if you search for the NSN (which is 4710-01-391-7078)

Other than that I can't find much. I can see there's very basic specs for F9801 on David's omni chart, but aside from that I'm not finding much else.

Looking for any light anybody can shed on a tube I just got (which is currently non-functional).

Based on the most similar tubes in this thread, I'm thinking: maybe it's a Russian tube of some kind? Or maybe a repot or an AEO or something like it.

On the side it says "091014033347" and on the pigtail it says "LTE" (in a box) and "1807".

Oh, and it came out of what looks like an ITT PVS-14 housing. There is a spot on the housing where an ID plate was removed. Searching for LTE yielded some results for some ACTInBlack "PVS-14LTE"s which have an ID plate in the right spot, but other than seeing that they have European made tubes, that has been a search dead end for me.

Pictures (maybe, imgur is being weird): https://imgur.com/a/kud8XXa

Edit: looking like it's an NAIT repot.

Need some help fellas.  Tube labeled NV5050-XG7 I saw in this thread possibly an Everest tube.  Is that accurate?  

Where can I get tool to tighten retainer ring?

**I'll answer my own question: It is an EVEREST aviation tube.  Tool to tighten the ring is cut down gift card or the like or buy the tool from ebay.**

I can't find much on these tube.  Only reference to them is from this site.  Does it have a pigtail?

"Very late Everest Series"

Edit: I did find something.  Everest tubes are Pinnacle tubes with a programmable power supply.  I can't post the link I found to the pinnacle specs but if you use the WayBack Machine and punch in this link you will find them:

I wonder if "special" denotes an Omni tube that fell short in some respect as such was marketed as a commercial tube?

Hello everyone, I'm new here, new to NVG's, I just built my first ever device  a PVS14. I ordered a housing kit from Superior Tactical and ended up buying a Tube from someone else, they didn't have any info on it other then it's a MX-11769 in Green Phosphor. I tried to figure out what all the codes meant and got confused, I was hoping someone a little quicker than me could fill me in on the rest?

thank you ! So did I do ok then ? I've spent the last few months instant messaging with dozens of Chinese producers (probably just sales people) trying to get them to just sell me a tube for their own advertised prices, it seems they have all made their advertisements a year or more ago and now our Dollar doesn't carry the same weight, they all want hundreds more then what is advertised, I would have paid double what I paid for this tube just for a tube that doesn't have manual gain or auto-gain with a tube of 1400 fom.

Does any of the info on the tube or packaging tell FOM or who manufactured it ? or are those three stats the only things available with what I was able to provide?

That is an ITT US tube manufactured on the 47th week of 2019. You did fine depending on the price you paid. The specs I posted above will tell you the minimum FOM, not actual, as those are the minimum the Omni-VIII contract had to meet to fulfill the requirements.

64x25=1600FOM minimum.

Thank you, I appreciate your help. To be honest it wasn't cheap, I paid $1700 for the tube. My original plan was to build my first device for the experience and I had the intention of using a used or slightly blemished tube or even a Chinese tube to save money and just dip my toe into this world, I had bought the housing months ago from Superior Tactical so I was kinda already locked into going this route, overall it seems I could have bought one from a vendor and had a warranty but like I said I originally wanted to piece together a unit using a Chinese housing and a used/blemished tube or Chinese tube , but dealing with some of the folks selling that gear was more trouble then it was worth, plus the prices weren't far off from where I ended up.

The Chinese PVS14 housing was around $450 before shipping and taxes, so I decided to go with a Milspec US made housing from Superior Tactical for just a few hundred more, then same thing with the tube, I was only saving a few hundred dollars all said and done if I'd bought one of the used or blemished tubes I was researching, and all the dozens of chinese vendors I messaged with had a sliding price scale depending on the tube ie. white/green phosphor, autogated, manual gain, FOM ,anything over 1600FOM and they all wanted close to $3k after the included tax and shipping. Right before I pulled the trigger on a Chinese Tube with all the features I wanted I found this seller on Ebay, with basically a brand new unopened tube for half the price of what I was gonna pay for all the same features from a Chinese vendor. I might not have went the super cheap route I had planned but I'm very happy with the function and clarity of this tube.

Hello all, I have this tube that I pulled from an ATN 3P scope



On page 12, the user Advance posted a tube that looks nearly identical to mine in the sense that it has a Silver bullet top with a black body, and has a cutout for a removable pigtail

Would I be correct in assuming that my tube is also a  L3 Omni 8 tube? On the output side of the Intensifier there is a little rubber cap covering where the pigtail would be installed. It also seems like L3 tubes have 9 digits and the numbering on the side is consistent with other L3 numbering I've seen in this thread





Sorry I don't know how to embed pictures(it shows them in preview) I usually lurk here only. Thanks everyone

With those CAD dates they should be Omni-VIII. Those contract numbers are unfamiliar to me.

Hi, I've found this one for sales and I was wondering what kind of tube is. When turned on there is a distinct whine, it's gated and has autogain.

Also, with what kind of tube can be paired in a binos?
