Re: Product News: PNV-57E NOROTOS MOUNT v2

No worries. Let me know when you get it corrected. Fortunately the Army school in Louisiana was strictly day operations. Since it was a basic leader course, nothing too complex was done. I did take a Cyclop with me, which is part of my standard kit; never know when that will come in handy. Just made...

Re: Product News: PNV-57E NOROTOS MOUNT v2

I kind of understand how the mount works. From what I can figure out, the mount base bolts onto the Norotos arm with the corresponding screw holes. What is confusing for me is the the ring part. Where does it attach on the PNV? The middle bar? That seems to thin according to my measurements. The SLD...

Re: Product News: PNV-57E NOROTOS MOUNT v2

Cool. Appreciate that. I'll also look for a local CNC machinist.

I plan on mounting it on my Army issue ACH.

Re: Product News: PNV-57E NOROTOS MOUNT v2

Thanks for the file. How does the mount work? I presume the round clamp goes around the PNV center rod. What does the upper mount to? On my two Norotos mounts, I have a dovetail adapter area where a PVS J Arm would slide into. Ended up getting a Gen 2 of the Norotos mount as well. Once I get this pr...

Re: Cyclop Upgrade - IR Light

I'm using M42 55mm 1:1.7 Chinon lenses. One Cyclop came with a lens. The other didn't so I hunted around on eBay for one similar since I had decent luck with the other one. I was able to get the lens for about $25. Didn't want to spend too much since these monoculars are being used primarily for bas...

Cyclop Upgrade - IR Light

Was able to acquire two Cyclops with decent lenses. Overall, a decent rugged night vision monocular, but limited in ultra dark locations. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v704/Veers57/IMG_8909_zpsumbwmenl.jpg Decided to epoxy a Magpul MOE L2 rail to one side of each monocular. Then add a 1in flashl...

Re: Product News: PNV-57E NOROTOS MOUNT v2

How has this been going? Hoping to take my PNV-57E with me to Camp Balle near Ft Polk, LA for an Army school in April. There is an overnight field exercise and these would give me advantage over my peers. Plan on even taking my Cyclop monocular. Even if the mount isn't ready, I'll be able to use my ...

Re: PNV-57E Tanker Helmet Upgrade - Comm Headset

Thanks. The East German grenade pouch is perfect to mount on both of my PNVs to carry the battery and extra wiring. Couldn't find any 21st century pouches that could fit the transformer and batteries. Most of the 3rd Gen NVGs use small counterweight/battery pouches, too narrow for the PNV transforme...

Re: Cyclop Night Vision Monocular and AP-1 IR Light

You AP-1 is definitely LED! The laser diodes differ quite a bit. I got the laser version laying around here somewhere. I'll make some photos on the occasion. I am pretty sure that the older AP-1 got the laser diode, but they switched to LED at some point to reduce costs. That's good to know. I can ...
