Since you shelled out for the equipment I would urge you to practice with the weapon system. Night operating is vastly different than daylight ops. Many little things you dont want to learn when you need it on the job so to say. You can do most night drills and practices with weapons unloaded and in your own house as well. But you need to operate.

Also. get a fucking lanyard or something on that shit asap. You are going to have it fall off the helmet, its a fact of night operations in actual lived and worked in environments. And congratulations, I wish more /k/ gear queens would sell a few of their dozen weapons and buy ANY night vision equipment. Unless you have someone else handing you off equipment or you are an range fud, being able ot operate at night in any situation is critical.

>and lots and lots and lots of lithium batteries.

>make sure your shit can handle rechargeable lithium batteries if you grab those, they run hot compared to normal and may fuck your cheap Chinese knockoff shit up.


3d5b3b No.515532

>>515530

I buy boxes of 50 energizer cr123's every couple of years. There are no good rechargeable versions from what I've read on battery forums.

For the lanyard, would simple fishing line attached to the rhino mount, work?


64e7a0 No.515534

>>515532

Battery supply is good unless you expect long term supply issues. Best to consider at least one battery per night of operation will be used. While they can last longer if you change them out mid op the next night. Judgement call on that. The last couple of years have seen several advancements in rechargeable lithium's, but not a requirement and not something to gamble with if you do not feel comfortable with what is going on and why in those things. Please remember to NEVER use non lithium batteries if you leave batteries in your equipment, you do not want acidic leaking to be a thing when you come back to your stuff after a few months.

As for the lanyard attach it directly to the helmet. I've had entire assemblies(horn and shroud) fall off mine (for stupid reasons) and from your pic it looked like yours is the old style attachment which isn't bolted in to the helmet (guess what failed me). But for a stop gap while you play with it anything is better than nothing. But long term kit setup you need to remember to retain either an fast release system or an breakaway system which will not cause you to get hung up on something later. I bolted mine to the shroud (baseplate the rinohorn hooks to) for the lanyard in with the screw. I shelled out sixty bucks for the retractable system, but my first setup used 50/50 cord looped thru the washer nigger rigged under the screw of the shroud, then attatched an pair of plastic rings thru the 50/50 loop to another loop of 50/50 which attached directly to the pvs7 I had at the time.

The plastic rings were the break point should the nvg's get hung up on something, helping to stop the risk of decapitation. They also doubled as an easy place to attach and detach the nvg's lanyard itself. With your setup I might suggest hooking it thru one of the straps near your ear under the helmet with a small carabiner or something like that so its easy to fully remove during the day. You shouldn't have the lanyard be more than 12'' extended from its mounting, preferably less so you minimize cordage hanging. This is why I prefer the retractable retention lanyards that are sold now.


3d5b3b No.515538

>>515534

Understood about the batteries, my model nvg can only accept cr123's so basically it can only run lithium anyway.

As for the mount, it is a rhino mount, but it's screwed into the pasgt helmet as I had the strap as seen on anon's 3rd pic seen here >>515493 but I stupidly over cranked it and snapped the plastic (why?) locking mechanism. However, I noticed that the rhino mount does had a hole that covers the screw on the front for the harness of the helmet

Being a creative sort, I used a slightly longer screw that was long enough to get to the harness but not poke my head, and still have the mount nice and secure to the helmet. For all intents and purposes, that rhino mount is pretty much permanently attached to the helmet. In any case I'll take your lanyard advice before I take this out camping and practice night shooting.

Any good tips on how to drive well with nvg's?

If you want to spend under $500 look at the armasight spark. It's gen 1+ but they made it close to low end gen 2. Aside from that, you're looking into spending roughly $1,000 to $3,000.

I got lucky on eBay getting my monocular.
