If you go and look at https://www.ar15.com/forums/armory/US_Omni_Classifications__Table_of_Differences/18-317705/ for the NSN without dashes you'll find a listing.

So, basically autogated manual gain MX117679/UV high performance tube produced by Exelis (cage code 13567 should be on it somewhere) during the OMNI-IV-VI eras but not on an OMNI contract as best as I can tell. Unless you have more data printed on the tube, like a contract number.

Pics might help.

Interestingly the ARFCOM chart above lists a MIL-PRF which was a requirement for OMNI VIII (MIL-PRF-A3256363).

So... Like maybe you have an older product high perf tube? Really need pics to see more numbers.

I sent a link on here sorry for the late reply
I don’t see anything else on the tube itself
Hopefully you have some more insight that can help

Ultimately I paid so little for it and it sounds like I got a really good deal on it.

You Got a once in a lifetime deal.

Is it gen3 autogated?
I’m pretty new to nods
I currently have a NVS14 (Russian I believe) Gen2+
