US NightVision Corporation has a reputation as a leading manufacturer and distributor of the latest and highest quality night vision and tactical equipment that is known world wide. Their dedication to customer service, satisfaction and support is exemplary and sets an extremely high standard for the entire industry. Whether you're looking for body armor, a thermal imaging weapon sight, or a hands-free night vision goggle, USNV has a huge selection for you to choose from.
The AN/PVS-22 Universal Night Sight is a reliable and user friendly night vision sighting system that can be adapted to nearly any riflescope with a 40mm (or smaller) objective lens. This front-mounted optic delivers high-quality intensified images directly into the focal plane of your firearm's day-time optic.
The optical system of the AN/PVS-22 is parallax-free so it can be installed without needing to re-zero your scope. Your scope's reticle and variable magnification remain unaffected, and will operate normally.
This night vision attachment system is designed without prisms or other mechanisms that can go out of alignment.
Once the AN/PVS-22 is installed, you're ready to engage your target with confidence and precision. This is a repeatable, reliable, and simple night vision solution without complicated mechanisms that can go out of alignment. Additionally, a manual gain-adjustment is configured into this NVD. This allows you to fine-tune the intensity of the image to match the surrounding environment.
The AN/PVS-22 simplifies your night vision weapon sight requirements, while greatly enhancing the flexibility and efficiency of your firearm. Your response time to any low or no-light situation will be radically reduced, and the benefit of having one single firearm and sighting system that can handle nearly any situation goes without saying.
The nighttime imaging performance of the AN/PVS-22 is handled by a premium third generation image intensifier built in the USA by ITT. This premium tube delivers extremely well detailed images thanks to its specified resolution of 64 lp/mm. This image intensifier also features an autogated power supply; autogating maintains the systems ability to deliver high-quality imaging while operating under dynamic lighting conditions. This reduces the incidence of bright-light blooming and washout caused by high levels of illumination within your field of view.
There are many different variables that affect the distance that one can see with a night vision device, among them the object's size, the level of details being sought from the object and the conditions of observation. Night vision devices detect much further under a full moon and clear skies than they will under a new moon and cloudy skies. Many different formulas are used to determine the statistic of maximum viewing range and the method of calculation varies by manufacturer. The important factors to consider when evaluating any night vision device are the intensifier tube's generation, s/n ratio, level of magnification, specified resolution, along with the clarity & light transmission performance of the optical stack.
All night vision devices sold by B&H have mechanisms in place to protect the intensifier tube from a sudden burst of bright light, but this does not mean that bright light doesn't damage the device. No matter what, bright light in any form is not good for the longevity and performance of image intensifier tubes.

Third generation night vision devices feature a gallium arsenide photocathode that produces significantly more photoelectrons than the multi-alkali cathode of 2nd generation NVDs. Gallium arsenide provides a significant increase in photo-response and tube life. Their enhanced resolution, gain, and signal to noise ratio results in greater clarity and overall performance than previous generations of night vision.
