The PVS-14 is the all around best multi functional night vision monocular available. It's optics are the highest quality and the new redesigned battery housing (uses one AA battery) simplifies use with greater dependability and lighter weight. Most important of all, the PVS-14 has shown its mettle in the sands of Afganistan and Iraq and proven itself to be an invaluable tool on the battlefield.
With current contracts for production, numbering into the hundreds of thousands of units, the PVS-14 may well be the most highly produced night vision scope to date. One of the reasons for the PVS-14's greatest success is its ability to fill several niches. One is being head and helmet mounted. In this role, the PVS-14 allows the user to retain their night adapted vision in one eye while viewing their surroundings through the illuminated eyepiece of the PVS-14.
Another niche that the PVS-14 fills, is its ability to be weapon mounted behind most collimated daylight aimers and Reflex sights such as the ACOG, Aimpoint and EO Tech systems. This allows the user the ability to use their PVS-14 as a short range weaponsight.
Another advantage of the PVS-14 is its gain control. This function gives the user the ability to increase or decrease the tube gain. Under extremely dark conditions, gain control allows the user to adjust the gain upward, giving a better image. Under high light conditions, details can be washed out due to an excess of light. Lowering the system gain can allow those details to be better seen.
All NVD-PVS-14s now use a brand new battery housing that will cut off power to the PVS-14 when the unit is flipped up in a head or helmet mount. It will turn back on once the unit is flipped back down into viewing position. The user does not need to fumble with the on / off switch to reset the unit in order to turn it back on when flipping the unit down again.
