Available to US Customers Only: All ITAR Regulations Apply

KommandoStore is excited to offer new, high quality PVS-14s. Each unit is professionally assembled using NATO spec Israeli housing kits and low hour, M890-AV (MX10160 Form Factor) Commercial Grade Tubes from L3.

Each complete PVS-14 will ship with an image intensifier spec sheet based on archival data. This report lists a good estimate of specifications of the tube installed inside the unit.

Lead Time:

Units are fully assembled and ready to ship immediately after purchase. Customers will be required to complete ITAR compliance documentation prior to order fulfillment.

About the AN/PVS-14:

The PVS-14 was introduced into service at the turn of the 21st Century, replacing the US Military's ageing inventory of PVS-7 units. Key advantages of the PVS-14 are size and weight reduction over the legacy PVS-7 units---the compact, lightweight design of the PVS-14 monocular cuts both by nearly half.

At a compact 316 grams, the entire unit can easily fit in your hand, providing the average soldier with robust night fighting capabilities in even the worst low light conditions. PVS-14s can be worn on a lanyard and used as a spotting scope---more commonly they are helmet mounted for hands free use. Thanks to a huge volume of military surplus helmets and head mounts, you're only 30 minutes on eBay away from terrorizing hikers at 2am.

The Monocular Question:

Although the limitations of monocular night vision are obvious, the unique strengths of the PVS-14 system are rarely discussed. The form factor of the PVS-14 enables a great deal of flexibility and modularity---allowing users to get into night vision cheaply and add capability over time.

  • A single PVS-14 can be worn with a helmet, or around the neck as a monocular. This can be augmented by a second PVS-14, enabling binocular night vision.
  • Bino PVS-14 setups can be split up on the fly, allowing you to "donate" a single monocular to a teammate without losing your night vision capability.
  • The MX10160 intensifier tubes in our PVS-14 units can be re-used and assembled inside many of the most popular binocular night vision housings. This reduces the cost of evolving and upgrading your kit down the road. 

With this in mind, we consider the PVS-14 to be the best option for people looking to get their feet wet in Night Vision. If you decide night vision is something you like---congratulations, the PVS-14 is an ideal stepping stone as you move towards more complicated and expensive setups.

Equally, if you decide Night Vision isn't for you PVS-14s are easy to offload. As the single most popular night vision device in the US, there is a healthy secondary market for PVS-14s. Professionally built units with spec sheets, tend to not depreciate much at all.

Testing and Assembly:

Each PVS-14 is professionally assembled in our Night Vision Assembly Lab. A technician will test, assemble, and calibrate your unit according to military TDPs and best practices. This includes inspecting, testing, and cleaning all components as well as columniation, purging, and infinity focus during assembly.
While PVS-14s are (relatively) easy to slap together, small errors are easy to make and can have significant negative effects on your unit. 'Garage build' NODs can suffer from internal condensation, uncomfortable eye strain, reduced image clarity, and irreparable internal damage.

Warranty and Return Policy:

The unit as a whole is covered by KommandoStore's standard 30 day return policy, plus free return shipping. We will also facilitate servicing and support of your night vision, including warranty repairs if needed. Your L3 image intensifier tube is also covered by a 1 year limited warranty.
