    This is, quite possibly, the best price/quality option on the Night Vision market.

    Those would be fine, I'm expecting $3K-ish for the NODS, plus helmet setup, then maybe DBAL price ranges of $1K give or take for the laser / IR laser.

    Maybe $5-7K per setup (2-3 kits).

    $5-7K all in per unit.

    LE purchases?

    Gov pricing on PEQs is sweet

    Not LE, but we might have an avenue for a .gov purchase.

    You really need to consider the B.E. Meyers MAWL. Nothing comes close to it for an IR laser/illuminator. If money was an issue I would by a lesser quality tube to afford the MAWL.

    The B.E. Meyers MAWL-C1+ represents a true paradigm shift in laser system design.

    Eurodriver, do headaches factor into your decision making process on whether to upgrade to binos?

    I was an 0311 from 2005-2009 (2/6 Fox), and using a PVS14 used to give me a headache if I used it for more than an hour. But I haven't been able to use one since to know if it could be alleviated with a different helmet suspension system, and I didn't know at the time that turning down the gain could help some.

    Did you get headaches in service, and if so, does your current set up alleviate them?

    edit : maybe I missed it, I've seen other people in this thread talk about fatigue from 14s, just not your experience with it

    As my stock investment continues, I watch this thread. I am torn on pvs14 vs binos.

    Long story short, I want a mawl and nods for $2800. I put that into the market in march and have now used very limited, a 14 and BNVDs. I'm still torn. 14 with gain turned down was fine. Bnvd felt more natural...but I didnt feel all that more capable...and 3-4k dolla saved is quantifiable capability too...
