  • KAC-Refurbished AN/PVS-30 from USNV

    Bringing this over from the old SH. Let me know if linking to the old site is bad or verboten.

    http://www.scout.com/military/sniper...v?s=541&page=1

    Got mine yesterday and it had a FOM of 1981 which is a bit on the above average side of what others have been getting.

    Messed around and clipped it on when it got dark onto a Mk12Mod1 with the Nightforce 2.5-10x24 on it and with just ambient light, I was looking at a house that's up on a hill away from me at around 700 yards clear as it would be during daytime. Zero distortion, zero lack of focus.

    Wanted to see how the 10x would be as a baseline and was going to try up to 25x tonight, but overall I'm very impressed. Comparing it to an Armasite Co-X that refused to turn on and when it did it would shudder like a bad old TV after 5-6 uses until it just outright died, the 30 shows you what real equipment looks and feels like.

    Well, then. . Just tried it in front of my NF 2.5-10 X32. OK; pretty nice, pretty impressive. Added the IR illuminator - like the new Lady Antebellum song - " you look good". Very nice.

    Thanks, EP & NA.

    Now, lets go find some stuff to shoot................

        Hope to see mine this week, I have 3 rifles to use it on but looking forward to seeing it with the little NF 2.5-10X32. Just so happened I was called about the AMG and paid for that as well. Now I need to con someone in TX to let me try it out on a hog infested property. Not much to see out here in NM but I will take her out once it warms up later this year.

                        They think there's harm being done to the tube in the clip on because he has the lens cap open in the daylight with the unit powered down.

                          Yup just reading whats on the "box". The front objective cover clearly states Don't remove in daylight. But as KSE said there is not harm done with unit off, just something i try to avoid doing

                            its like putting "do not drink" on a bottle of bleach. its common sense not to open the filter with the unit on in daylight but alas these are issued to grunts so you have to spell it out

                                no harm in being cautious when it comes to that kind of money. Can you post the dealer and cost

                                thx

                                I did not contact lowlight but my post count between the old board and here should be about 500.

                                  There's a handful of dealers that are selling these units. Guys have gotten them from most of them but here's a few

                                  Prices vary

                                    Received mine yesterday and will have a week or so until I get it out to play. Short term plan is to use my Radius along with Luna for laser and illumination respectively. Welcome to other ideas of course...

                                      Not seeing the FOM... Where is it exactly? My serial number looks to be on the bottom of the AA battery housing. There is no serial number on the top plate.

                                                  I ordered mine on the 15th and still waiting for a tracking number. I got mine from usnv, almost sounded like they order them from KAC but and not in stock.
