    Reading in a magazine at lunch yesterday the article went indepth to Urban sniping and talked about the PVS 22 night vision device. How much does that thing run? The article related it to costing as much as a ford mustang:eek4:.

    Obviously not for the average joe shooter, let alone an assault rifle, but curious if anyone has had any experience with this night vision piece.:bowdown:

    they're made from pinnacle grade tubes, only the military/LEO have access to pinnacle grade tubes from commercial manufacturers

    now, there are several individuals, ex military, that were specialists in night vision repair/maintenance while in the military, and have the knowledge and resources to build you one from repair kit and spare parts

    i.e, he will order a tube, you pick the specs, then order a pvs-22 rebuild kit, and build you one from scratch
