The actual image is even clearer than in the pictures, it is difficult to get the Iphone to capture it.
PVS-14 $2350 + shipping
From now until the next time I bump the thread I will be doing a 36 hour "black friday sale" and will do $2150 shipped on the PVS-14 + case. To boot I have a USGI picatinny mount I will throw in at no extra charge! SPF to brommeland
Up for sale is a newly assembled PVS-14 built from a commercial PVS-14 housing purchased from AB Night Vision, and a Litton M851 commercial production GEN III autogated tube (tube autogating confirmed by Dino1130 on the night vision forum by checking his Litton tube production database).
The tube is an astounding performer, great crisp image with one tiny black pinprick on the very edge of the tube at 5 o'clock- you can't even see it on the pics it is so small. The tube does not have a spec sheet, but I have included a pic of the tube info and serial number if you want to do a little research.
The housing has a special 4 position switch installed by Adam at AB Night vision. The positions are 1. ON with IR 2. ON, 3. Off (i.e. flip up mount off) and 4. "DEFINITELY OFF" (complete override of flip up system for positive off). This is a really great feature if you have ever fiddled with a flip mount that got "confused"
The housing and tube were sent to Ed Wilcox who inspected, cleaned, assembled, and nitrogen purged. I think I still have the receipt from Ed and will include it if I can find it. He did the work about 2 months ago. I personally have about 3 hours on the tube.
The PVS-14 will come with a lens cover and hard case, blade tech brand I believe. Fits the case nice and snug, and case has room to stick some spare barreies in it.. I can't ship batteries through the mail so you will have to provide your own CR123 batteries (it runs on one battery).
The only reason I am selling is it is a neat piece and great performer but I have other night vision and need to pay some bills. Not looking for any trades as they don't pay mortgages or car repairs.
I will ship insured, figure $40 for shipping (if more I will eat the rest. THREE DAY INSPECTION upon receipt. Please note this means you can try it out, but if you do some dumb shit like look at you car headlight with it and burn the tube, or decided that you want to take it apart, it is yours, end of story. I hate to say that but a guy bought a PVS-4 off me once and thought that "three say inspection" meant he could gut it, break it, and send it back!
If for some reason you are not happy, as long as it comes back in the same condition it left I will refund your purchase price less shipping. You will be responsible for return shipping, packing it securely with no batteries in it, and including all the accessories and insuring it. I just want to be clear on all of this as we are doing a transaction on a near $3000 piece of electronics equipment!
I accept USPS money orders, no checks or online payment on this one. Payment due within 7 days of purchase commitment, no exceptions unless prior arrangements are made.
If you have any questions email me. The pics should tell the story well, but I don't mind giving more info!
