Very happy with them.

I ordered a Wilcox G11 mount and Tor-mini from you last night.

Is the G11 the correct mount for the included J-arm?

Yes. I'm running the same setup. It's much more stable than a Rhino or Rhino II, but I'm still debating on changing out to a dovetail and g24. It leaves some room to be desired.

The TOR-mini is great. Easy to use, plenty powerful, and tiny. My only issue is the battery, as it's fairly unique and not found at most stores. I ordered a 6 pack and haven't run through the stock battery yet.

anyone know what the fedex shipping weight is for a PVS-14?  I just got shipping info from TNVC but not sure if it's my NV or a few other things I ordered a while back.

shipping notice says 3lbs.

My order confirmation gave a 16 week backorder, has this been pushed left or right at all?

I don't mind either way, just not sure if I should expect it next year or this one.

I was quoted 8-10 weeks and my PVS14 should arrive today, 13 weeks from order date.

I’d say the 16 week is just a rough estimate particularly since TNVC is at the mercy of their suppliers.  Clearly the number of orders was significant enough to cause some delays in the chain.

PVS-14 order placed 7/5, received today.

Luminous: 2299
Radiant: 260
Halo max: .98
Burn in EBI phot max: .86
2x10-6 max: 69284
Center resolution: 64
FOM: 2060.8

only noticeable blem is seen here.  

ETA: got to use now that it got dark, there's a few noticeable blems that show up which arent a big deal, the one in the photo is bigger than I realized. Hopefully it'll be less distracting as I use it more.

Just call them up. They have always been transparent with me when asking for updates or new ETAs on previous orders.

Man, the wait is killing me. Ordered back on 7/10 and called to check status today since I was given an estimate of 12-15 weeks. They told me it'll likely be another 4-6 weeks

Ugh, I was 7/13 order date so even worse for me.

Flip side, I forgo feeling guilty about spending on the new toy by calling it a Xmas present

I ordered my PVS-14 on 7/8/20 and received it 10/20/20

Specs are:

Luminous: 2137
Radiant: 237
Halo: .79
EBI: .47
2x10-6: 69105
Resolution: 68
FOM: 1713.6
Signal to noise: 25.2

one dark blemish right in zone 1

Just based off other's specs mine seems to be on the low end for FOM and S/N.  Is that just me being overly concerned or are these numbers OK.

I've only had a brief chance to use them in a neighborhood environment so lots of stray light.  Curious to try them out in the woods.
Link Posted: 10/26/2020 10:48:22 PM EST
After sending mine in for repair due to power flickering... TNVC gave me a replacement that dropped pretty significantly in FOM. Went from 2448 FOM to 1497 FOM. I haven't played with it much (< 5-10 minutes)...

Questions:

Was it flickering from the get-go?
Also...OUCH! I am glad TNVC has already addressed this. That's not cool.

Out if curiousity why is that not okay?

Someone who got a 1450 fom unit is supposed to be happy with it as its above minimums?

I mean we all want the best nightvision for the cheapest price of course. But just seems contradictory to me.
