Will the LaRue PVS-14 mount fit any of the yukon monoculars? Could the yukon be easily modified to work? Thank you in advance.

I would also like to see the specs to the Yukon monocular.

Off and on, I've been drawing up mounts for lower end NV monoculars to mount behind a NV compatible EO or Aimpoint. Never pushed it past that but I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking like this.

As far as the Yukon and the LaRue mount goes, I'm betting there's a bit of custom work that would need to be done to make it work, but it may be doable if the person was properly equipped and motivated.

I was thinking of one like this:

or on of these

It looks like most of them share the same basic body but with different lens attachments. What I was thinking is that the rubber piece around the objective could be cut away like some do for the aimpoint 3x mag. They have an objective lens of 24mm....which makes me think that there might be a 30mm tube under the rubber. But maybe that just wishful thinking.

Very interesting, too bad they don't sell the 1x NV monocular by itself. I think I would prefer the 1x with EOTech over the magnified verisons.

Keep us posted if you get one of these...

Wouldn't a 2x work better? Red Soldier has the 2x Yukon for $139.99 shipped. You could get the rifle mount for $49 and get the appropriate riser for the EO Tech.

You may be able to clamp on the front lens housing, but I'd not bet on it.

Here's another option:

Thanks for the links. Thats a really good price. I also spotted this on the site: Link Not too expensive so I can replace the first one if I ruin it. I'd really like to do the co-witness thing if I can since I have most of the set up already (for work). If I go this route I will keep you informed. Thanks.

Messing with Cheap night vision in my experience is a bad idea.

I had an ATN night sight for $550 and a ANPVS-4 for $1200 in 2nd generation + and the ATN was a damn joke and the PVS 4 was the heavy bastard they are and not all that clear while it did have plenty of light amplification.

Now I have a PVS14 with Gen 3 Omni 5 pinnacle tube [filmless autogated] and it absolutely rocks. I think it will be a while before better night vision is availible outside that really expensive four tube 80degree goggle.

I spent $1750 on the first two and had a lot of grief selling them both for about a combined $400 loss. It's not worth the time and money buying cheap night vision.

The Yukon 1x24 is a decent little NV device, resoluton is alright though it has quite abit of distortion at the edges of the image. All in all it is a solid little scope for the price. I loved the PVS-14 when I had one to play with but I couldn't justify buying one.

Well here it is, probably the first ever Yukon rifle mount made specifically for the AR-15 platform. It is in the first rough prototype stage right now but will line up with either the Aimpoint or Eotech and should clear a low profile BUIS. I hope to finish it by the years end, after which I will post a detailed how to for anyone else that needs a cheapo but decent little night vision rifle scope; for FREE of course. The total cost should be under $30 worth of materials and could probably be done by any home tinkerer.

The 1x24 works great so far when I did a little trial. The Aimpoint clone is from Jack in EE and I reviewed it recently.

Please don't steal my idea, if you do please give credit where it is due. Without further to do here is my very rough prototype.

The eye relief is annoying, I don't doubt for a moment that this setup is only for squirrel shooting.

Well since I already let the cat out of the bag here is the 2nd way to do it. It is mounted on my Ar for comparision but I wouldn't trust this method of mounting on anything more powerful than a .22LR; nevertheless it is definately food for though. Requires 1 Viking tactics flashlight mount and a willingess to sand. Once the side of the mount is reduced (you can see the sanding marks in the picture) and the front rubber cover of the scope is removed simply slap it over the IR illuminator and Voila:





Thats right, a ghetto quick flip.

The house in the background is the same one.

They are so far the best-cost unit I have come a cross.

how do you like that hogue handall on your Tango Down grip? I have a TD grip and find is extremely comfortable; does the Handall improve on it?

I like it quite a bit. My perfect grip would be the A2 but with the finger groove moved up a bit. But since this is an imperfect world this was the next best option. I like the TD grip but it lacks a really good texture or real retention grooves when I am using my bare hands. The handall allows me to shoot the AR barehanded and not have to worry about slip off when I'm full of sweat and dirt.

I also found that the little handall made reloading a bit easier because there is now a pressure spot to exert leverage whereas the TD does not.

Bottom line: Simple, adjustable, reliable and cheap.
