Gosh, most tubes on units I have seen on the market have old pre omni VI non-gated tubes.
This one is probably a perfomer with such a recent tube (I heard that tubes that equiped SoF NODs were selected among the best, just like aviation grade tubes. Not sure about this info)

My tubes and some of my friends have new tubes. Myself i have omni 7 tubes from late 2012, another has the same tubes but older, another one with omni 8 and so forth.

It all depends on your contacts and what you're willing to pay. Nightvision in europe isn't really hard to get, you just have to be willing to pay. ;)

Right. But if I see pvs14 with up to date tubes on a regular basis (mine included), it looks rarer for pvs18

Gents any idea on what amount of lead is needed to CW a PVS 14, running mine on a Maritime FAST helmet which is a knock of (for the time being) . I have about 200g. But I reckon i need more. Thoughts/advice etc. Cheers as always!

I've always run a pound for the PVS-14 with a Rhino mount, so around 500g. That helps compensate for having the PVS-14 stick out.

I'm running Ops-Cores counterweight on my FAST Ballistic, and it is completely comfortable with all the included weights thrown in. I'm afraid I don't know how much they weigh, but Ops-Core is bound to have that info on their site somewhere.

And about my PVS-18 tube. It's not original tube for this PVS, i use PVS-18 housing with MX-11769 tube (for PVS-14). PVS-18 dont have manual gain control, so "tail" on tube be perlaced by SMR resistor (130 or 150 kOhm), all work fine. Also no problem to use MX-10160 tubes in PVS-18.

So you are stucked to a pre set gain, with no autogain feature like on mx10160. A bit annoying, I like to adjust the gain on the fly.
Cool stuff anyway, better looking than a 14.

I only run the anvis battery pack in my Maritime, but it works a lot better now that i have the luxliner with h-nape and arc adapters for my comtacs. I'll try it some more next weekend to see how it feels wearing it over time.

No, if you install a proper resistor like that the tube is going to behave just like a MX-10160.
The ABC (Auto Brightness Control) is still very much functional.
Also the manual gain on the PVS-14 isn't a "manual" ABC. It only adjusts the ABC, basically you adjust the brightness range in that the ABC is working in.

Avs 6. Pinged you a pm on FB about some PVS 14 repairs/ upgrades.
Anyone done business with ACT in Europe. Got stung and my 14 cuts out when using the IR. Other than that its perperfect. Want to be sure before I drop cash again. Thoughts comments?

Ah yes got it and replied! :)

You can see my feedback here: viewtopic.php?f=99&t=8416

ACT Sarl. isn't very old yet, (only about a year now).
And its just about now picking up some speed. ;)
