Found an old MX-7793/PVS1 at a garage sale for 40 bucks and want to get it going. Anyone know where I can find batteries and some more info on this old beast. Would be neat to get it running for my retro setup.

Thanks Guys

The PVS-2 battery adapters for AA batteirs should work? I beleive the input voltage is the same as the pvs-2.

Keep an eye on the surplus sites as well like Murphy Junk. You would be surprised by all the stuff you can find for older night vision scopes. I pick up stuff on the cheap all the time for parts. Many times there are good deals. They get new stuff in all the time and i check it once a week or so.

Replacement for the BA-1100. Used in TVS-2 and maybe PVS-1, PVS-2, TVS-5? Uses 4 each AA Batteries

$ 17.50 to U.S.

Shown here about 1/2 way down the page http://www.prc68.com/P/Prod.html

Should do the trick?? The price sure is right...

Looks like the OP's needs are handled, but whenever you guys are looking for something wierd like this, give Ed Wilcox a shout. It's hard to stump him on old NV gear.

Woo Hooo! Got the AA conversion kit today and tried out the old beast. Works amazingly well (or at least better than I thought).

Thanks for the input fellas!
