With the help of y'all, we can make this an informative thread for those seeking mounting hardware info for our beloved AN/PVS14
Alas I only have two, a USGI and a PRI.

The PRI mount is height adjustable, it will clear most of the rear BUIS. Pictured is a Troy rear BattleSight, with the PRI mount at its lowest setting


PRI mount at its highest adjustment.


The indentations/grooves for height adjustment.


The front of the PRI mount, probably should have numbers etched along with the increments. Curiously, these little lines are in Inch, though they appear to be in milimeter



Here's a USGI mount. It's a cantilever mount with a big mounting screw wheel below that effectively eliminates any possibility of using a flip up BUIS with it unless you mount it IN FRONT OF the BUIS or mod the mounting screw wheel From what I hear, the rationale behind this is you'd take the whole thing off and put the A3 removable carry handle on as your BUIS. The nut that's supposed to cap the end of the thumb screw (above the letter TOOL) is missing. It's a terrible way to secure the mount on the rail


Another view of the USGI PVS14 mount


Now your turn

I do not own any NV, but I do like the futures of the ARMS mount. It seems very thought out.

LaRue Tactical QD Mount Retails for about $150 USD.


Low profile, can be used over the tallest folding BUIS


Simple design is easy to put on and take off.


Allows for installation of headgear adapter while unit is weapon-mounted


Aligns perfectly with EOTech and M2


Goes from weapon to Rhino mount in seconds. The LT hardware is very lightweight...

lol I did say PVS14 Vic
But I'm glad you brought up MUM14, its mounts and those for the PVS14 aren't interchaneable.

Just giving credit, where credit is due.

Since it looks like I have finally gotten this pic posting thing figured out, here is one using the USGI mount until the PRI arrives.

haha wife will probably slap you upside the head if she finds you with a helmet and an NVG on walking around the house

Actually, she clicked off a surprise pic of "nerd guy" [meant in the nicest way, of course] to E-mail to her friends when I stepped out of the "dark room" [aka walk-in closet]. When I let her try the unit, she commented, "pretty damn cool".

Duffster - that is a much different mount tha the original cantilever design that came with it. Looks like it might actually clear a BUIS rather than having to push the whole thing forward on the receiver, which only works with the MRP .



Link Posted: 10/9/2005 8:18:34 AM EDT
Ah my fault, I didn't read Vic's post carefully enough, he did say a new mount for MUM-14

Looks close to mine too (Classic Protec...mega cofortable, no strain on the ol' skull)
This rear-mounted stronbe gives it near perfect balance.

Here's a USGI mount I modified(dremeled) to fit over the KAC 300M BUIS
