Need info about Litton M845 tube

Postby H_exar » Tue Sep 25, 2012 12:39 pm

Hello

I have a sight - Litton M845 Mk1. Does anyone have information about what intensifier is installed in this scope?
I also have trouble with reading gain parameters given in the instructions. They are usually served in a different way (something like this: Gain - 20,000-35,000).
I think about selling it, how much it might be worth? Its is fantastic scope but I can't even mount it on real firearm (legally).

The M845 uses a Gen II Litton M801 image intensifier.

You'd probably know it better as the AN/PVS-5 tube.

Can you make a picture of the front side of the tube (photocathode) without flash so that we can see its color?

Early K and M power supply.
Is it a 9916 tube with a slim power supply?
