Can you put a 10160 tube in a PVS-7? or is it a different size?

What are the common failure points on a PVS-7?

I know a lot of people like them, and I have a line on a cheap parts kit but need to know what kind of tubes to look for before I buy it. I figure it'd be a fun spare to throw on a cheap helmet for when I take my nephews or daughter hiking and hunting. Unless my wife decides she needs them, lol

No, a PVS-7 requires a 10130 format tube. Only used in a PVS-7 and a couple of rifle scopes and binoculars.

Bayonet lug can break but if it does buy a 32.00 Wilcox Dovetail shoe and use it in any dovetail lowering arm. Unless the kit is super cheap most used Gen3 AG PVS7 sell for 900-1,300 used. NOS tubes run for 800-1,300. Either way it's a great unit for the money still in use by Mil and LE all over the world.

thanks for the replies everyone. Due to my crappy internet over here I missed out on a sub $400 parts set. I don't have a 10130 tube but I'm sure I could have found one.

oh well. guess I will keep looking for a cheap PVS-14 kit or maybe a MUM-14
