Scored my pvs14 for 30 bucks on a 9minded raffle lol, that's the only reason I have night vision.

full power laser isn't necessary but would be nice. The vampire light works great compared to the c illuminator.

30 dollar PVS-14. Man.

I will say I think krdt should hold out for full power. (If you want to call a PEQ-15 that, technically the LA-5C is full powered )

Going from a PEQ to using an ATPIAL-C kind of felt like messing with a toy. The illuminator is how you say......el ghey? but much better than nothing of course. Gotta love stupid restrictions, can buy guns but no quality IR lasers. Don't want to fry a retina even tho you can fucking SHOOT somebody in the eyeball instead.

Agree about waiting for full power/ restricted...

Except for the clone aspect, the MAWL beats the pants off of any other civi laser out there. I even dumped my full power PEQs once I got a MAWL. No more worries about getting it fixed, no worries about the man and or CID seeing my shit and I get 90% of the same ability within the abilities of my guns.

But, theoretically, airsoft battery boxes, would be were I would start looking.

Now $30 is something I could budget for, lol.

I kinda already want an ATPIAL to finish off the CQBR, but I can't see spending $1200 on a C model that is apparently barely even usable. Definitely not interested in spending that kinda money and adding weight to the gun for looks alone. So, I figure I might as well get something that would actually be usable with NV. If I didn't go the full power route I'd probably just go with a Vampire to save weight and money.

Problem with the Vampire route is you'd have no laser. And with helmet mounted NODs that makes NV with rifle almost useless. If you got a weapon mount for your PVS, and mounted it behind your EOTech, then you'd be good. But just remember for helmet mounted you need I.R. illum and I.R. laser. At least if you want to be able to aim without trying to play monkey fucking a football aligning a helmet mounted PVS with an optic

Haha, yeah... good point. Really only interested in having a helmet mounted setup so I can actually look around without waving my gun about, lol. Sounds like a full power will kill two birds - be the most useful for NV and add a little clone correct cherry on top.

This is a "down the road" purchase anyway. Pretty much already decided the next money pit will be URGI 10.3 clone - when the rail/URG becomes available. I was already wanting to do an Mk8 10.3 build, but at this point I might as well just wait for the Mk16 and do it right. Hell, I still need to swap the LT150 on the Mod 0 for a Wilcox and get a tan G33 for my CQBR. Shit never ends :\.

Hence the risers. Attachment Attached File


Now, I think technically with that combo, it is either about the same height or exactly the same height as just using an EXPS, but still, lol. So much easier to see through optic with NODs if you have optic up higher.
Link Posted: Yesterday 3:45:57 PM EST
HK416 is taller than an normal M4. So the XPS and Wilcox riser is about on par with an EXPS, but those Wilcox risers are again on HK416s which are taller. So overall - that setup is sitting taller than a Block II with no riser.

Also - I shoot more with my EOTech under NODs than I do with the laser. It's not useless.

Yeah, I'm aware of the built in riser on the 416's. I meant, that aside, if you put an EXPS and an XPS with that riser setup on any gun, I think it would be at or roughly the same height. But my original point was that risers make passive shooting a lot easier.

Edit: I'm wrong anyway. I can't get the 553 to fit on the rail without totally removing the La-5 and switch setup, but even sitting on top of the rails it's slightly lower than the XPS + riser.

The c model is very useable, the it laser goes farther than anyone in this thread would use.

The illuminator is shit though.

As said above. The C model will be fine for you. I can see the laser farther than I can shoot (I can aim it at a tree line 1k yards away and see it). The illuminator is what is lacking, but it's still not that bad.

[Last Edit: Yesterday 4:51:42 PM EST by JohnnySasaki20]
Yeah, I mean, you can get a surefire or something with a vampire head and use that as your illuminator, but a peq15/la-5 illuminator looks and works entirely different. The IR flashlight is going to be a flood, so everything is lit up, and that fucks with the gain on the NOD's, so everything that isn't lit up by that flood light is now in darkness. That generally means everything up close is lit up, but everything outside basically 50-100yds (idk, guesstimate) will likely be much darker. The peq15/la-5 illuminators are not floods unless you want them to be (If you put the cap back on the illuminator, it sort of works like a flood, but it's still different), they're basically adjustable spot lights, and don't really change the gain on your nods. So it lights up the thing you're aiming at, and that's it.

Think of it this way. The illuminators are basically just higher powered lasers that you can defocus. A flashlight is sending light out in every which way.
Link Posted: Yesterday 4:58:11 PM EST
Unless I replaced my M300C with a Vampire, I'd be getting it as much for the illuminator as the laser. I suppose a C and Vampire would be the most cost effective, but it sounds like a full power PEQ-15 might be better suited for my intended uses - mainly shooting wascally desert creatures at night (coyotes, jackrabbits, etc.). Obviously need to do a lot more research before I jump into anything, but I appreciate all the input.

Regardless of any preference, the full powered PEQ-15 is the way to go. I never even used the I.R. capability of my 952V after I got my PEQ. No reason to.
I used the onboard PVS illum and/or my Surefire I.R./white helmet lights for the small stuff. PEQ-15 HIGH/HIGH setting for everything else. I did also have a USGI weapon mount that I would mount my PVS on behind my comp m2. I really enjoyed that setup as well but helmet mounted is superior IMO

Try doing all of that with 7's and iron-sighted A2/4's.

That's when you just aim with tracers.

Heres the 1st round of pics, its not very dark out and the distance is about 25 yards. Ill take some more after while at longer distances. I have a lot of ambient light around my house so its hard to get the best comparison.

The images are taken through an iPhone X, they aren't even close to the quality i am viewing through the PVS14.

Don't get me wrong id love a peq 15 but i can't justify the cost and lack of warranty for the environments and distances i shoot at.

Yeah, I'm outside in my backyard right now. I really can't take any pictures that will show you the difference on camera. Maybe if I concocted some tripod setup with a DSLR, I MIGHT be able to find something that somewhat resembles what you see in person, but even then I'm doubtful.

Anyway, this is just straight pvs-15. No illumination, no laser. Range is maybe 10yds max.:

Attachment Attached File


This is pvs-15 with a wmx200 illuminator (an overpriced IR flashlight). It might work out to 50yds if it's pitch black out. Any lights and it's workable range is maybe 10-20yds.:

Attachment Attached File


And here is the lowest setting on the peq-15 (laser and illuminator). I forget what the lowest IR setting is, as far as power goes. TNVC always seems to be off on their numbers, and I don't feel like looking for the manual atm, but it's probably around 3.0mW on the illuminator and 0.6 on the laser (you can't even see the laser in the pic, but it is clearly visible in person):

Attachment Attached File


Now I didn't edit those in any way other than to crop them. I didn't even bother taking a high power picture, as it's already washed out on the low power. It obviously looks better in person, but the illuminator dims with distance, and that's why the higher power is needed. It dims much faster than you'd think. Frankly, this looks fine in person. As in not washed out at all. I wanted to take a picture of it at greater range, but some light on the house I was going to aim it at washes everything out on camera, to the point of the low power not even showing up. Again, looks fine in person, but I guess cameras, and phone cameras in general aren't all that great at translating this sort of thing.

Anyway, this is just straight pvs-15. No illumination, no laser. Range is maybe 10yds max.:

This is pvs-15 with a wmx200 illuminator (an overpriced IR flashlight). It might work out to 50yds if it's pitch black out. Any lights and it's workable range is maybe 10-20yds.:

And here is the lowest setting on the peq-15 (laser and illuminator). I forget what the lowest IR setting is, as far as power goes. TNVC always seems to be off on their numbers, and I don't feel like looking for the manual atm, but it's probably around 3.0mW on the illuminator and 0.6 on the laser (you can't even see the laser in the pic, but it is clearly visible in person):

Now I didn't edit those in any way other than to crop them. I didn't even bother taking a high power picture, as it's already washed out on the low power. It obviously looks better in person, but the illuminator dims with distance, and that's why the higher power is needed. It dims much faster than you'd think. Frankly, this looks fine in person. As in not washed out at all. I wanted to take a picture of it at greater range, but some light on the house I was going to aim it at washes everything out on camera, to the point of the low power not even showing up. Again, looks fine in person, but I guess cameras, and phone cameras in general aren't all that great at translating this sort of thing.

Wow I'm surprised by the wmx, not feeling bad about passing on a few of them now lol.
