L3 Filmless 1701 models are sometimes referred to as "comspec" or commercial spec. However, that generally does not mean they are inferior to Milspec tubes.  1701 tubes can carry a higher Signal to Noise ratio over a typical Milspec tube, but might include an extra spot or other cosmetic blemish that puts them outside the bounds of more narrow Milspec standards. They may also be completely clean but have a single spec that is outside the Milspec range of acceptability. More rarely, there aren't obvious reasons for them being deemed 1701 tubes and appear comparable to Milspec, yet carry a discount to them.

"In the tube pictures, what are the rings with numbers inside them? Are those dots above the center circle actual blems / spots on the tubes?"
Each circle in the provided test image denotes a "zone" (1, 2, or 3). The dots above zone 1 are NOT spots in the tube but are imposed on the image for spot size comparison.

PANOBRIDGE

“What Noisefighters has managed to do with the Panobridge is incredible. The fact that I can stow a lightweight, compact, panoramic night vision goggle in my cargo pocket is game changing. The Panobridge presents the first worthwhile alternative to quad tube goggles that I’ve found. It is simple and tough, and by integrating standard AN/PVS-14 monoculars, it eliminates many logistical headaches.” -Retired Master Sergeant Bob Keller, owner of Gamut Resolutions training group and a ten year member of the U.S. Army 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment - Delta (Delta Force).
“Most people and organizations can’t afford quad tube goggles. The Panobridge, coupled with two AN/PVS-14s, is the first alternative to quad tube goggles that I can now recommend for those looking for panoramic night vision." - Jon "Mochabear" Dufresne, owner of Kinetic Consulting training group, a former U.S. Army Ranger, and current executive protection and law enforcement consultant who is additionally on staff with Sage Dynamics.
"So, basically, the Panobridge, in my opinion, it's the best dual PVS-14 bridge mount available right now." -Nitewalker, from his video review.

BACKGROUND ON THE PVS-14

The PVS-14 is the all around best multi-functional night vision monocular available. Head or helmet mounted, the PVS-14 allows the user to retain their night adapted vision in one eye while viewing their surroundings through the illuminated eyepiece of the PVS-14. The new battery housing completes the perfect package by allowing the user to power off the unit when in an upright position and power on when flipped down. 

Gain control gives the user the ability to increase or decrease the tube gain. Under extremely dark conditions, gain control allows the user to adjust the gain upward, giving a better image. Under high light conditions, details can be washed out due to an excess of light. Lowering the system gain can allow those details to be better seen.

Additional features of the PVS-14 include an infrared LED with LED indicator and a low battery indicator.

We include the following with every purchase:

  • 2 PVS-14s
  • Data Sheets
  • Objective Lens Caps
  • AA Lithium Batteries
  • Panobridge

I got a PHENOMINAL set of high FOM DTNVS that Ryan helped me pick out. He walked me through the pros and cons of different NV systems and even sent me pictures through the tubes of the actual units I was interested in.

This was a night and day difference compared to the big-hitter shops I’d been talking to previously. They either didn’t know their inventory well enough, or charged a premium just to browse what they had. Ryan, on the other hand, kept everything up front, so I knew exactly what I’d be getting if I decided to order from him.

I can’t say enough good things about Ryan! He’s by far Apollo’s greatest asset and an all-around genuinely awesome guy. If I’m being honest, he seems more concerned with making his customers happy than he is with actually making money. Super knowledgeable and treated me like good friend instead of someone fighting for their place in a queue.

Without a doubt, I WILL be doing more business with these guys and ONLY these guys

Huge shoutout to Apollo Gear Co for the best transaction I've had with any retailer in any industry

I used the live chat feature on Ryan's website to ask a question about the resolution of a set of tubes, not expecting to actually get a response, but he responded and sent me the full spec sheets, and we talked there for a while before he just gave me his number and told me to call him, where he then proceeded to talk to me on the phone for roughly an hour about my options with his wares and about night vision in general. And this was all at 8-9PM at night. Last night, in fact.

He had mostly won my confidence so I went ahead and bought one of the DTNVS sets from the flash sale, not the set I originally planned but the set he talked me into, and not even 24 hours later UPS was at my door with them in a giant exterior box, with a smaller box with a free hard case inside of it. He expedited the shipping for free because I told him I wanted them for my trip to Glacier.

I've never had an experience this smooth and this positive with a retailer online or in real life. That's to say nothing of this set of nods, which are mind mindbogglingly good. Huge shoutout to Ryan and Apollo Gear Company for hooking me up fatty style with the nicest pair of tubes I've ever looked through in less than 24 hours.

DTNVS Buying Experience - Apollo Gear Co

I have been looking to step up from my PVS-14 to a nice L3 WP DTNVS for a few months now. I talked to a few vendors and but eventually ended up going with apollogearco.com and I wanted to give a shout-out to Ryan at Apollo Gear Co. He was incredibly responsive and helpful even when I was bothering him on a weekend while he was away from his office. We messaged back and forth quite a bit and ended up hand picking a spotless unit that I’m very happy with, and Ryan threw in a bunch of extras for me that he definitely didn’t have to do. Overall 10/10 experience, if you’re in the market for some nods check him out.

First-time NV buyer, just got a Panobridge kit

[Ryan was extremely helpful throughout the whole process, sending down-the-tube photos, talking about specs and choosing tubes to complement the left and right sides, and throwing in extra kit and going over the various options. I ended up getting a mount, Agilite counterweight pack, Comtacs, and some other stuff on an already-assembled helmet. The packaging was sturdy - foam-lined case inside padding inside the box. Ryan came back immediately when I had a question about altering the focus-limit ring a week after, too. Absolutely recommend this company.]

Bought a set of L3 WP RNVG’s from Apollo Gear and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Ryan is really knowledgeable and he’ll fill you in on any questions or concerns you have in order to feel confident in your purchase, plus he won’t rush you into a sale. Solid dude.

Quality inventory from what I’ve seen. Great customer service. Fast shipping and he’ll make sure to follow up with you. Would buy and WILL BUY from Apollo again soon.

First night vision purchase, Photonis Echo PVS14 (specs in first caption). Big shoutout to Apollo Gear Co!

After weeks of research I had started looking at Photonis Echo intensifiers pretty heavily as they seemed like the best bang for the buck for my intended uses, namely at work. I work for a smaller (150 sworn deputies) agency and our jurisdiction includes a mid sized city, several smaller cities, and unincorporated areas with no artificial illumination. In addition to normal patrol duties, I’m on the agency’s SRT unit and we are often required to respond to surrounding counties as well as our own jurisdiction. After speaking to Ryan at Apollo Gear Co about the various options out there, I decided that the Photonis PVS14 would be exactly what I needed.

Man I was not disappointed, the pictures in this post don’t do it justice because I am far from a photographer. I placed my order on a Friday evening and it was at my door in a nice hard case on Thursday. I took it out to a friend’s house and looked across the fields around her house, which normally are completely black even using a high lumen flashlight. I could see every detail for about 100 yards in every direction with no artificial light and minimal ambient light from the moon.

All in all I couldn’t be happier with the unit and I can’t speak highly enough about the outstanding customer service from Ryan. I’ve literally never had a business owner reach out personally about an order before this one, and the whole process was as pleasant as you could hope for. 100% recommend Apollo Gear Company and will definitely do business there again!
