What is the BNVD 1431 MK2 Omni7?

The BNVD-1431-Omni7 is a binocular night vision device (BNVD) that consists of an American 3rd Generation Omni 7 Image Intensifier Tube, American Mil-Spec Optics by Carson, and a housing made by the Argus Company then optimized here in the USA.

The American Image Intensifiers are 3rd Generation from the Omni 7 contract, which was the last green tube contract before the US Military largely switched over to black-and-white night vision. This means you get a tube with all the latest characteristics, including a gated power supply, and with most of the performance as well, and by going with a green phosphor tube you get to keep a lot of money.

The mil-spec Carson Optics are standard military use and Made in USA. They are the standard by which everyone judges systems.
