    Thanks, I'll look into it.

    I don’t understand why the lowly rino mount is so…lowly?
    I never had one fail in almost 10 years, including 3 in the sandbox.
    In and out of strikers/APC/blachawks and chinooks.

    They don't offer as much fine adjustment as a Wilcox 24 or a Norotos INVG. But, it's questionable how much "fine adjustment" you really need, to me anyway.
    The truth can only offend those who live a lie.

    Biggest improvement in other mounts is being able to ditch the bayonet-style mount in favor of the more secure dovetail as well as having vertical height adjustment.

    The now-issued RHINO II is actually a cost effective mount that fixes the adjustment limitations of the RHINO. Personally, I also prefer a mount that stows goggles in a lower profile than the RHINO/Norotos AKA2/etc., but there's nothing functionally wrong with them in that regard, just preference.

    Every failure I saw with the PVS-14 mounting was the shitty J-arm. Before picking up my personal binos, my -14 had a Norotos Dual Dovetail Adapter which I greatly preferred over the Wilcox J Arm it replaced. The J arm is the achilles heel of the -14.

    Norotos fixed the bayonet only mount issue. You can upgrade it easily to accept wedge mounts and ditch the shitty J arm.

    I've modded 2 so far, pretty easy and the result is a much more rigid mount interface.

    With a $70 Ebay Rhino 2 and the mount above, you're in a pretty good mount for $150.

    Esq.,

    Thanks for sharing, man. That's a great mod.

    Better off with a converted to dovetail Rhino and a Noisefighters X14 or AX14 arm than going with a G24.

    G24 is going to cost more than the converted Rhino and it has the stupid button release, whereas the Norotos Titanium mount is "force to overcome"- i.e, just push it up out of the way versus fumbling to find a button which new users can find difficult under stress.

    It will also stow closer to the helmet then as well.

    Also note that using any aftermarket J arm will make the auto shutoff flip up feature on your 14 stop working. Granted that feature sucks anyways and is the least reliable thing on a PVS14, but if you like that feature, know that you will lose it if you use anything other than the military J arm.

    Will the AX14 work with a G24?

    This is what I have (thank you @Lowdown3), I just got it but I like it so far. I like how the AX14 has the pivot point in the middle. Let's you get closer to your Helmet when stowed up, or you can swing up as if it were half a set of binos.
