So I’ve acquired a ANVIS-9 and am now looking for a mount to use. I have the bead on a good deal for a G01 Mount for the F5050 PVS-23. Would this work with my ANVIS-9 (F4949)? What’s the actual difference between the G01 and G02?

Thanks Augee! I just got off the phone with Wilcox about 5 min ago and was going to report the same thing.

I actually recently dealt with this when someone asked to use their own ANVIS goggles and wanted to borrow a helmet and mount.
I’m sure I looked quite confused when it didn’t lock up properly. Fortunately I also had spare goggles. (Actually some TNVC Sents haha)

Exactly! Who mounts up ANVIS w/o using $0.02 of 550 cord?

(Have you gotten those back up and running yet?)

It was a humbling relearning experience. She was literally just putting them on real quick on the porch.

I epoxied it back together and it feels as solid as it did before it broke. Which is still pretty flimsy lol

At least your spouse did it. How understanding would she be if you were asking for $$ for the NV you just broke?
But also that looked like one of the cheaper “Oh S@&$” moments.
I’ve had to pay the bill b4 when other people drop my stuff.

Do they make an RNVG for ANVIS glass?

She’d be pretty understanding but definitely not the same, lol. That’s the tough part. Like many of us, I’ve taken people out to use gear, but lucky to not have had any of them drop anything (knock on wood). Definitely recommend not letting people borrow Anvis 6/9s.

I’m at a crossroads. I’ll post on my thread to not hijack this one
