AX14-ARM | Articulating, Featherweight Night Vision Monocular Mount
A single-arm mount that is 1/3 the weight and significantly more stiff than a milspec J-Arm, while also providing a tight stow against the helmet and allowing the monocular to be temporarily swung away from the eye. An excellent upgrade for single night vision monocular users.
The Noisefighters AX14-Arm™ is a featherweight night vision monocular mounting arm for the PVS-14 and similar devices, produced with cutting edge manufacturing and material technologies. The X14-Arm weighs 0.8 oz / 25 g total, or 55% 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.
The AX14-Arm 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.
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 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. In addition, the new articulating knuckle does permit full range of motion on both the left and right side of the AX14-Arm.
The choice of a high performance polymer from Arkema® produces a nearly indestructible monocular mount. The highly impact-resistant material chosen for the X14-Arm should absorb shocks and bounce back into shape instead of fracturing when dropped, bent, or otherwise stressed. For extra peace of mind, we added fasteners made of anodized, aerospace grade aluminum and stainless steel.
A tether (or dummy cord) attachment point is featured on the rear of the AX14-Arm to keep the entire system secure.
A no-questions-asked, transferable lifetime warranty is included. The Noisefighters AX14-Arm is proudly made and assembled in the U.S.A. and was designed by a Marine Corps combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Considerations to account for when using this product:
No auto-shutoff system is integrated. Users must manually turn off the monocular when articulating or flipping up and stowing equipment on top of the helmet.
