All assistance will be appreciated by this newbie.



I am looking for a IV generation (filmless) night vision scope capable of being mounted on my M-4, helmet, and being hand held, etc.



My first choice would be a Litton product. I realize that since they have been taken-over by Northrop Grumman their small production has diminished even further. I would be willing to wait in order to get one of Litton's scopes if necessary.



My second choice would be from ITT. I understand that ITT produces a fine product, but not quite up to the standards of Litton. Whether this is a matter of quality of the lens or the scopes ability to stand up to the rigors of field use I do not know.





Thank you for taking the time to "enlighten" me.

Aren't there any military folks available that may have had some experience with both Litton and ITT night vision equipment, case in point the PVS-14? Gen 4.

Thanks,PeregrineAloft

I would probably have to say only two items would fill the requirements listed, the pvs-14 , and the insight technology mini monocular. Either unit would be capable of mounting to the m-4, head or helmet mount, or even handheld. The insight mini-monocular in my opinion would be the better package deal as it comes with everything to achieve your requirement out of the box, the pvs-14 would need to have a weapon mount purchased separately. As far as the tube requirement gen IV filmless, we have ITT in very limited quantities, with military getting 1st dibs.  Litton takes a little longer due to military demand and could be 30-120 days out.
 
Insight technology mini monocular      $3,999.95 
PVS-14                                            $3,999.95
