AN/PVS-30 UNS LR LP Clip-On Night Vision Weapon Sight 4G Photonis White Phosphor

The UNS™ LR LP clip-on Weapon Sight (WS), Type Classified as AN/PVS-30 adds the latest high performance Gen 3 light intensification night vision to most rifles and day scopes by attaching to the picatinny rail. This product is appropriate for front line long range rifles. Within the Knight Vision product line this model is currently in production for the US Army for use with the Knight’s Armament Company Semi-Automatic Sniper System (SASS), and other long range sniper rifles. The Knight Vision patented technology makes the product universal and assures the accuracy of your range-tested day scope boresight will not be degraded. When the AN/PVS- 30 is added in front, your existing optic, eye relief, and cheek weld are undisturbed. The refractive lens provides high performance light collection in a light weight design. Knight Vision patented Single Interchangeable Battery (SIB)® allows use of either CR123 or AA single cells, with a battery life exceeding 24 hours, and can be changed while you remain in shooting position. The highly efficient power circuit allows use of depleted flashlight batteries to provide several hours of operation. Single Interchangeable Battery (SIB)® U.S. Patent No. 7,576,516.

Delivery Time and Manufacturing Process for AN/PVS-30 UNS LR LP Night Vision Clip-On Weapon Sight 4G Photonis White Phosphor:

Most of our manufacturers do not keep products like AN/PVS-30 UNS LR LP Night Vision Clip-On Weapon Sight 4G Photonis White Phosphor assembled on the shelf. Night Vision tubes are kept separate from the body of the unit. When the order is placed, the manufacturer starts the order processing and assembly process which includes the following:

  • Order processing - we collect all the necessary information including address and phone numbers. We also make sure that our customer ordered the correct product for their needs and that the product can be exported by US law to the country of destination. In some cases a signed export compliance form is required.
  • QC - in this step the manufacturer will inspect all individual parts which will be used to assemble the night vision device for any defects.
  • Production & Assembly - during production, all the parts are put together. Night Vision tubes in inserted into the body of the unit and all the complex electronics for the device are connected. This process takes place in a special lab called the "clean room" as even a small speckle of dust can cause undesired optical effect.
  • QA - one the night vision device is assembled, it goes through a rigorous testing process to make sure it meets all the expected specifications and all parts function as expected. For this most manufacturers have a special "dark room" designed to allow testing of the units without causing incidental damage to the night vision tube by exposure to bright light.
  • Packaging - this is a key process as well. In most case your night vision device will be shipped to you directly from the manufacturer but sometimes needs to be sent to us first. In either case items need to be packaged securely to avoid any kind of damage during transportation.
  • Shipping - as described above items will most of the time ship from the manufacturer. For most domestic orders (unless shipping to POB or AFB) a premium shipper like FedEx or UPS will be used.

Only by following the above steps can we along with our manufacturers bring you - our customer - night vision products of highest quality, However as you can understand the above process can take several days to complete. For example if your device fails QA, the entire process restarts. Also at QC stage a manufacturer may realize that the tube they have in stock has a defect and a replacement tube needs to be ordered. Due to the complexity of this process, it is prudent to expect 3-4 business days for production and handling of the purchased device. Keep in mind that this process is designed to guarantee your satisfaction with the night vision device of your choice.  It occasionally possible to expedite the process for urgent orders but addional fees or other restrictions may apply.
