Yes, Sir! I plan on building a second (*matching) -14 with one of them and then maybe use the extra as trade fodder down the road.

Is that an ether eyepiece as well?

How much does the ether lens weigh by itself?

What are the benefits of these housings over a standard mil-spec PVS-14 housing? Are they more rugged like the Vyper housings? Rubberized or a different coating on them? And, about how much do they run? I've seen the Vyper housings go for around $180 or so.

Something like 50 grams? In hand it is lighter than a standard piece. To my eye it seems better but honestly, *I just wanted to pimp my ride out.

ETA: *If there was an upgraded objective and batt housings I’d have bought them as well to complete the pimp-mobile.

Full aluminum with *heli-coiled inserts (*at least that what it looks to me). No rubber coating. The Vypers are still poly while the Hyper housings are aluminum if I remember correctly. These are $240 straight from KAC. After I bought the first one I decided to get two more for possible future build.

The hypers definetly seem to be the Gucci option price wise. Any experience comparing the two. Also in terms of weight, anyone have any idea of the stock body, vyper poly, kac, and hyper alu housings?
