New from Noisefighters! The AX14-PRO™ is the most advanced PVS-14 J Arm to date. Less than half the weight of a USGI J Arm while offering superior lockup, rigidity, and ruggedness. The proprietary rotating knuckle provides a full range of articulation; allowing for a tight stow against the helmet, as well as flat stow position while deployed. The AX14-PRO features a rearward sweep positioning the PVS-14 at an optimal distance from the eye. Multiple anti-rotation features, as well as reinforced joints, are utilized in the AX14-PRO design. The use of 316 stainless steel washers provide a smooth eye to eye transition while being maritime rated. The integrated tether point on the rear of the dovetail allows for lanyard/tether attachment, without imparting torsion force onto the PVS-14. What this all means is the AX14-PRO J Arm is the most advanced and feature packed PVS-14 J Arm on the market.
The Noisefighters AX14-PRO™ is a featherweight night vision monocular mounting arm for the PVS-14 and similar devices, produced with cutting edge manufacturing and material technologies. The AX14-PRO weighs only 0.9 oz / 26 g total, or approximately 52% less than a milspec J-Arm, yet it is significantly more rigid due to the unique design. Just attach a monocular, snap the complete assembly into an industry-standard dovetail helmet mount, and enjoy. An intuitive, friction-based mechanism allows users to swing the PVS-14 monocular in front of either the left or right eye and perfectly adjust for interpupillary distance.
The AX14-PRO is the successor to our original X14-Arm and includes a new, desirable feature: a knuckle is integrated into the arm which allows the entire monocular to both swing away from the eye temporarily and, when not in use, tightly stow against the helmet, significantly lessening the chance for damage during movement under doorways or out of vehicles. This knuckle is supplemented with metal washers for smooth and consistent movements. To be clear, the articulating knuckle permits full range of motion and tight stowing on both the left and right side.
The mechanism is pretensioned at the factory and should never need to be adjusted, but a simple hex key wrench may be used for adjustment as necessary.
A slight rearward sweep of the inner arm helps position the monocular eyepiece closer to one's eye and provides greater compatibility for those with larger helmets.
Multiple anti-rotation features prevent the monocular from rotating and loosening with vibrations.
The choice of a high performance polymer from Arkema® produces a nearly indestructible monocular mount. The highly impact-resistant material chosen for the AX14-PRO should absorb shocks and bounce back into shape instead of fracturing when dropped, bent, or otherwise stressed.
All hardware is made of genuine, passivated 316 stainless steel and mil spec anodized aluminum for the ultimate in salt water corrosion resistance. The AX14-PRO is truly maritime rated.
A tether (or dummy cord) attachment point is featured on the rear of the AX14-PRO to keep the entire system secure.
A no-questions-asked, transferable lifetime warranty is included. The Noisefighters AX14-PRO is proudly made and assembled in the U.S.A. and was designed by a Marine Corps combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan.
