I really wasn’t planning on buying one of these, as I have plenty of NVD/thermal items ahead of it on my shopping list, but best I can tell this is a brand new COTI for $3k, so I ordered one.

Not sure why they are so cheap (probably something newer and better coming out), but Eurooptics is a reputable company.

Vectronix appears to be the same company as Safran/Optics1 upon cursory google search.  Hmm.  

Fuck it I guess.  Don't want to miss $2.5k discount, but goddamn $3k is a lot of money if this turns out to be bullshit somehow.

I'm gonna be a little pissed if I order this and E-coti gets released to the public for a reasonable price right after.

FO'd.

I guess this puts to bed the temptation of the $900 S&W 500 magnum.

I paid 3800 out the door with taxes, this is a sweet deal for sure and EuroOptic is super legit. No worries buying from them, I have many times.

Hopefully this has the external charging port the pictures shows it but the literature doesn’t say it.
For anyone looking for the external battery Packs I have some for sale in the EE

Can you tell us why these are so cheap and if this will be a short run or a continues item at this price.

Also do they have the external charging port?

Haha I was like damn, got bit by the price drop fairy again. Only like a 500 dollar difference but still.

I got the pvs 31 pack with DICC and Coti charger, waiting on a helmet cover from A&A tac and then I will be done for this lid haha.

These do have the charging port, but you guys better buy those charging cables fast. A lot of guys are going to be picking them up now that COTI's are so much more affordably priced. It looks like this deal is going through August. Actually thinking of picking up a second at this price.

Me three.


Me four.

I’m like ‘3k, damn. But 1% cash back makes it 2,970...and I can swing that’

ETA: just called JRH and they’re a few bucks cheaper and give free S&H for ARF denizens.

Going to pick one up.

What does an aspiring citizen of COTI-stan need to mount this to a PVS-14 and/or RNVG?

Want to get any adapters submitted in the same order.

The mounting ring that fits PVS14 and RNVG objective lens housing or the objective lens lock ring is included with the COTI

You need a better credit card.  Mine gives me 2.5% cash back on all purchases.

I have the AA battery packs in the EE ^
I’m assuming you could splice the plug off mine and solder/heat shrink it to a different battery pack but I havent tried that.

https://nvincorporated.com/product/coti-31-5032-remote-battery-cable/

Splitter cable ^

@smeeg
@towerofpower94

Wills optics had the splitter cable and pvs 31 CWBP on sale for $750 so I FO'd. They had the PAS 29 battery pack for $450 but they are out of stock now so Smeeg has a good deal going there on the EE. You could still cobble one together on there for about $1500 with the 31 pack.

Here

ETA, looks like they still have the combo package but its $1200, I can't really tell because there is one for 1k but I am not sure if that one has the Y cable.

I have already had several situations where I see animals I would NOT have seeing with just my pvs14.  They definitely are a huge help with detection.

Thanks OP ! These have been on my radar for a while but just couldn't pull the trigger at the normal price. This deal was a no brainer. Got my tracking number already.

Use USAA for all the things and haven't researched another CC in years. Might need to rectify that, it seems.

Robert /JRH

Is the pvs-14 adaptor for the COTI different than what you reference above for the BNVD?

I’ve been able to get the ‘14 adaptor to work on BNVD-UL but the “buckle” placement is far from ideal.

Thanks!!!

I snagged one yesterday!

Got one of these too, hope to extend the battery life past an hour haha.

I'm glad to hear a vetted member of the community say these are legit.  I do feel bad that I sent my business outside the circle so to speak, but I had visions of this being a fleeting once in a lifetime, sold out in an hour kind of thing.  Like that amazon ACOG thing I wasn't around for but hear so much about.

After reading the thread, maybe I "need" an external battery pack also?

Goddamn my bank account is crying.  If I had my shit together and invested in the 'rona pit of the market this wouldn't make me feel so irresponsible.

Ugh, been on the fence with one of these since I put in an order for a DTNVS two months ago. Snagged this coti as well since I didn’t want to miss out on a deal. So will this mount to a DTNVS just fine? And if I want to do a remote battery, I’d have to get the 31 battery pack, cable splitter, and then wait for the new DICC to come out (they said they were working on it when I emailed them)? I knew NV was gonna be a costly venture, but holy shit. Man this is fun!
