Likewise. Guess it's off to try and find a dovetail mount.





But in all seriousness, for some people these units just make the whole thing more doable. People look at NV cost as the price of the unit...it's really not. Once you're in a helmet, the mounts, an IR device or two for aiming, raising the mounts on your rifles for passive shooting, etc. you're really adding the difference between these units and a filmless unit. That's just the binos...the PVS14 at ~2350 could potentially get you into the game for under 3k with a helmet, used Rhino, and the new micro Steiner unit.

TNVC knocked it out of the park in terms of reading the market, and timed it perfectly.

Thanks man. It will be worth the wait, I appreciate it I'm pretty excited, thanks for offering these at such a great price.

I thought it was a good deal and pulled the trigger on a PVS-14.  I was Army until 2000 and used -7s a bunch.  I have a couple pair of those today.  They are familiar and they work.  WP is something I’ve wanted.  I have used them in trials and shoots before but did not have a set.  

I am excited to see how this set compares!  I’m hoping I get a winner!

I purchased a PVS14 few hours ago so I'll probably be backordered (#368310).  I've been tire kicking this for too long.  I've bought a Breach, a helmet and a bridge but never seemed ready to buy the PVS14.  This should allow me to finish off my helmet...until the bino bug bites.  Fingers crossed for hitting the lottery on the spec sheet.  I'm excited to check this out.

In for a pvs14.  Thanks to Bill @ TNVC, he was very patient and I'm now looking forward to the possibility of classes down here in Florida.  Where do you guys see your wait time?  My invoice just says "Backordered: 1."

So my question is, for a first NV device and probably only NV device for a long time, would you rather have a TNV L3 UF WP PVS14, or one of these new bino options?

If those are the only two choices with no upgrading then hands down the bino.

This comes up often and it's probably 9 out of 10 will take the binos.
Link Posted: 7/3/2020 5:16:44 PM EST
Alright, I'm in! I am keeping my fingers crossed that it meets or exceeds the performance of my OMNI VII GP tube. Also, I didn't realize TNVC charges your card right away on back orders? I guess it's a different vendor I was thinking of that only charges when they ship.

Now, off to sell some things to pay for the new purchase!

I'm the 1 out of 10 that chose the unfilmed white phosphor PVS-14 over binos.

I'm going thermal (either helmet or weapon) for the other eye.

Look a couple threads down for "Nice PVS 14 or Meh binos?"
I was asking the same thing. Personally i am probably going to go Binos, but I still really love the idea of having a top-of-the-line PVS14, if nothing else just for the novelty of being able to experience and show off the latest and greatest technology.

Late to the party but took wife out to dinner to discuss NV options. After a tall ameretto sour she suggested execute on this smoking hot deal immediately and she would run it if I decide I need a higher spec unit down the road. What a trooper!

Im greeted with a "we are reviewing your order" Wife said see you were too late....

I assured her we are good!

May be able to upgrade down the road, but I imagine it'll be quite a while.

Yep, I had been following that thread as well. Just figured I'd ask in here for comparison to this specific new setup.

Me too. And I'm starting to wonder if I should cancel and order binos.

I would love to have the nicer tube, but it sounds like it's worth not having the best to have binos.

It’s interesting how some people hate mono’s and others love them. A dual tube setup is certainly preferred but a mono certainly doesn’t suck.

Mine just indicates Backorder. Eh, I'm not worried. More excited than anything. I've been running a PVS 7 for about a year or so and am looking forward to running a 14.

Thanks!

Didn't know we were supposed to do that.
I simply ordered right off the site. Card was charged immediately and I received an invoice email in minutes.
