I like my Wilcox j-arm just fine (I got the one with switch).

If you want a mount without the up and down slop go with the newest version of the Norotos dual dovetail mount. Switching from the left eye to your right is quickly is almost never needed.

If y’all dont mind me butting in, I have a Pvs-14 from work I use hand held a lot and recently got a helmet to use at work and hunting if I can get more opportunities. I got a wilcox g11 mount and was wondering about the cheap jarm and different options. I have researched it but haven’t found anything solid and most info is 3years old. The Norotos seems like a good option, I don’t have anywhere close by to see different options in person, if anyone has the time to explain to good options to mount the Pvs 14 to Wilcox g11 I would appreciate it. Being able to adjust left or right eye is a must but it doesn’t have to be done quickly. If a tool and 5min is needed I’m fine with that. Thanks

Go for the norotos dual dovetail, it’s about as solid as they come with a g24. If you don’t have any requirement to switch eyes then just take the second dovetail off and save some weight.

As to getting solid lock up on a g11 with a cheap j arm. That is hit or miss. It’s a numbers game to find good fit with cheap j arms. Being able to switch eyes with cheap j arm is going to bring with it a wiggle and movement. Even after finding a good j arm to work solid with my 14 and g11 mount I ended up dumping it in the end. I kept breaking them or they got more sloppy over time.

I switch to a g24 and norotos dual dovetail in the end and was worth the investment. If I didn’t have goggles and was only using the 14 I would of went with a norotos invg and dual dovetail mount but the g24 is better for goggles I think.

Will the Norotos work with a g11?

Not the norotos is a dovetail and the g11 is a bayonet style lug. There are ways around but at that point you’re better off buying a g24 Mount or the INVG Mount and using dovetail j arms or the norotos arm. I understand if it doesn’t fit your plan or budget but there is no easy solution for cheap bayonet style j arms that I’ve been able to find but there are smarter people than me on here.

I learned something thank you. I didn’t know one was a bayonet lug and one a dovetail. I’ll keep that in mind. Thank you for your time.

The cheapest and most economical way is to sell your G11 (I may be interested), buy a Rhino II on ebay 50.00 and swap out the socket for a Norotos PVS15/18 dovetail interface from TNVC 59.00.

That's a great price for an online store and TNVC is top notch for customer service.

I just ordered the g11 I’m gonna try and call to change it to the g24 I suppose. I got a polymer helmet instead of carbon so the money I saved can go towards a good mount system. Thanks for the help.

The INVG mount might be a better solution if you only plan to use it with a monocular.
