Tactical Night Vision Company (TNVC) is releasing a range of new products for 2014, including updated versions of the PVS-4 and M845 optic, as well as a new standalone thermal device from N-Vision Optics, the TNV/Sentinel Binocular Night Vision System, and the Wilcox Raptar laser system. Scroll down to watch a video for more information about these new products from TNVC.

New for 2014, TNVC is offering a completely refurbished version of the PVS-4 optic system, which was popular with the US Military in the late 80s and early 90s. TNVC has incorporated the legacy Catadioptric optic system and replaced the Gen2 tube with a brand new Gen3, making this the perfect optic for long-range hunting.

Similar to the PVS-4, TNVC has taken the M845 and updated it with a Gen3 image intensifier system. The M845 Mk.4 is a 2.8x red dot sight with a wide field of view and a recoil rating up to and including 7.62x51mm NATO. It is an ideal sight for nighttime hunting.

TNVC is also offering a new standalone thermal device from N-Vision Optics. This user-friendly device comes with selectable reticles, a removable eyepiece, and an image which can be set to infinity, making it a perfect clip-on device for long-range rifles. This is a cost-effective, dual-purpose system.

Also new for 2014 from TNVC is their new TNV/Sentinel Binocular Night Vision System. This is a flexible system perfect for law enforcement, military and civilian sportsmen. It has a magnification of 1x, a resolution of 64 lp/mm, and is powered by a single CR123 lithium battery. In addition, the Sentinel platform allows for the use of either an aviation mount or a bayonet mount.

Lastly, TNVC has made available the Raptar laser system from Wilcox Industries. The Wilcox Raptar and Raptar Lite is a laser module with an infrared laser Pointer, visible laser pointer, infrared illuminator, and an infrared laser range finder. It mounts to MIL-STD-1913 RIS/RAS and STANAG-4694 rails. In addition, it can be mounted to a Picatinny Rail via a low-profile adapter.
