Pitbull - Housing Kit

  • $ 275.00

The PITBULL Housing Kit is available for purchase through the retailers listed on our Dealer Info page.

The Pitbull Housing Kit includes the Housing and all necessary rings based on the style selected (PVS-14 or ANVIS). Lenses (eyepiece and objective) and the image intensifier tube are NOT included in this kit.
The Pitbull monocular housing kit is used to build a compact full function night vision monocular.  It has good ergonomics with a strong, robust design and proven electronics.  These monoculars can be used hand-held, weapon-mounted, or head or helmet mounted.  They accept a wide variety of accessories and use a side mounting area like the PVS-14.  This allows you to install J-arms, weapon mounts, etc.
The Pitbull has a built-in IR illuminator.  The switch knob must be pulled rearward to go into the last position and turn on the IR illuminator.  This feature prevents you from accidentally turning it on, as you are easily visible to anybody else with night vision when the IR illuminator is in use.  A small light will show in the edge of viewing area to let you know IR is active.  Another light will flash when the circuit detects a low battery.
Both housing styles use the proven PVS-14 Mil-Spec eyepiece which accepts rubber eyecups and can be used with camera mounts.
The Pitbull Housing Kit is available in two configurations:
The AVS-9 Lens Style uses the high quality mil-spec AVS-9 objective lens.  Many desire the coatings used on the AVS-9 lenses.  Also this is a great unit to use for converting your AVS-9 or AVS-6 binocular into a set of monoculars.  AVS-9 style lenses will accept the 3X afocal magnifier lenses, however the threaded adapter on the end of the lens is an epoxy-on design, so it isn’t recommended to use a magnifier while on a weapon due to the extra force from the recoil.
The PVS-14 Lens Style housing uses the proven PVS-14 mil-spec objective lens and offers a little more ruggedness and versatility than the AVS style lens.  The body of the PVS-14 objective lens is aluminum, which gives you a strong attachment point for accessories such as 3X magnifiers, or scope mounts.  As well, the PVS-14 style housing accepts mounts that clamp around the front end of a PVS-14.
