Just FYI for anyone researching...

Just ordered my -14's late Saturday night.  Spoke with Vic on PM here and Jaimie (ops manager for them) called me today - they are running 2-3 weeks lead time on these right now.

carry on

I also have another 14 that's been on order for a week now. So it might be another two weeks? I was told a couple of weeks. I was looking forward to getting it next week. Sounds like business is good!

Back when I ordered mine the wait was up to 6 weeks, but holy crap, they were worth the wait!

I was 7 weeks I believe. I can't remember because since the day I got it, I haven't looked back to the days without.

Man I want one of these.  I got to wear my first pair last weekend at The Walking Dead Zombie Prepper Multigun Match and they were awesome!  I am very tempted.

Thank all of you guys for your orders! Like Vic said in a few posts above, we were sitting with stock on the shelves all but a few weeks ago. Supply and demand fluctuates our lead times, but we always try to keep it manageable.

If I would have known it was going to be more than 2 weeks, I would have bought the milspec version.  I assume that one was ready to go?

I don't think they stock those either. When I ordered mine a couple months ago, itt shipped it to them,  then they shipped it to me. It took about a week. So another week for tnvc-pvs isn't to bad.

LOL. Vic has a great bunch of guys building his 14's. I have met some of them and they do a wonderful job. It will be well worth the wait. It takes a little time to build one to milspec standards. I can slap one together in 15 minutes but to do it right takes a good hour per unit. Well worth the wait. Congratulations !

The hardest part believe it or not is just getting it dust free. No matter how hard you try to maintain a "clean room" dust is always the enemy. The shop built units are put together by some good guys !

I ordered my TNVC PVS14 this month and was told it'd be a couple weeks, but got a shipment notice after only a couple days.

Mine was probably a fluke, but these things can happen. Either way, it's nothing like the wait for a suppressor. Piece of cake!

I had a chance last weekend at the Zombie prepper shoot to compare my factory ITT NEPVS14-17 to the TNV-14 L3 unit.  Although my unit was a hand select and has smoking specs, the TNVC build was every bit as clear, blemish free, and bright.  If I was doing it over again today, I'd have no concern going with their PVS14.

Considering getting a Sentinel for xmas.

Talk about impatient! I just found out it will be couple more weeks wait through tnvc, so I ordered another in stock tnv pvs14 for another vendor with next day air. Should have it tomarrow by noon!  I feel your pain. It was hard for me to pass up a in stock tnv-14 with a 31 s/n and .6 halo!!  Now the wait for the other should be easier to handle.

Try calling TNVC and speaking with someone first if you are interested in either thermal or NV, works much better than a PM.

Trading Place Pawn has some new TNVC PVS-14's in stock including a few in Multicam at better prices than direct.

Holly shit, that's SMOKIN' right there.  Damn!  I have a hand select that meets omni 7 specs I am super proud of and always brag about, and that one beats mine I think.  What is your resolution on that tube?

mine shipped.  so I would say the lead times right now are about 16-17 days.  which is two weeks-ish.

Res is 64. They have a 72 res in stock ready to ship, but the other specs aren't near what I have. I wasn't really in the market for another 14, since I have two, and one on order with tnvc. But after I heard those specs it got me really interested real fast. Also it's my cleanest blemish free tube, I'm super happy with this one

I waited for mine and it was worth it. The quality and customer service you get helped make me feel very secure spending a decent amount of coin on them.



Jamie kept me updated all the way. I was given real estimates, not the BS 2 weeks cookie cutter line most companies will give you. TNVC is doing it right.

I'll never forget the first PVS-14 I purchased, I couldn't wait to get it! I'm sure the unit you get from TNVC will be top notch, please do share the specs.

I remember that day well.  I was out my door and at the UPS truck before the driver even had a chance to put it in park :)

Only thing that rivals that is my anticipation right now, been waiting on my FLIR T70 to ship for a couple weeks now and it's been all I can think about.  I keep telling myself it'll be shipped any day now. Come on FLIR, pump those units out!  I know TNVC will deliver again, they always do.  This time of year down here my UPS deliveries come on a golf cart so I'll be watching the road like a hawk as there is no tell-tale diesel motor sound to tip me off like there usually is with the big brown truck, just a silent electric golf cart zipping around the neighborhood.  Oh, and delivers are about 5 hours later in the day than off season too

If I am understanding you correctly, can you pretty please wait until at least the 14th of Dec? That's usually when I get a little bit more money that I didn't have before.

Tomorrow will be the 3 week mark for me. I think everytime i email and ask if they know a ship date i get bumped to the back of the list for being annoying. I wish i had my pvs14 tonight, we were finishing combining our last field of corn and the coyotes were running through it and picking the pheasants off like crazy. Of course i didnt have my ar with me either.

I have a few questions, but I wont be ready to buy until March next year so I figured I would call sooner. Lokking to get a 14 and some sort of FLIR.

From all the reading I have done online TNVC looks like the people I will be going with.

I thought the same thing. Emailed Jaimie once so far.  Probably won't see it until 2014 now.  It'll probably ship when I go to work next week so I won't get to use it anyways.   Ha!  Timing, I'm bad at it.    No complaints about tnvc though, happy I went with them and they shipped the rest of my order right away.  Of course they didn't have to build it and install whatever elfen technology or black magic that makes night vision possible.  Probably....casting a spell or something.  A spell that requires a battery yes, but.....

I didn't really think that was the case, but couldn't find the right frown face to show my sarcasm. Your staff has been awesome to work with. Kyle helped me pick out the NVD that would be best for me, and Jaimie has helped me add to my order twice now and has always gotten back to me right away when i ask about the status. I was number 10 as of wednesday. Fingers crossed you got a big shipment of tubes in!

Are the L3 tubes more readily available right now?
