AN/PVS2 scope mods and mounting Q's.

Postby Davros » Fri Mar 22, 2013 7:44 am

Hi All,
Got an AN/PVS2 scope I want to mount on a .22 or air-rifle hehe. Just because I can. Only I can't right now...
I want something Elcan style, but no way for $400US.
Wondering what those airsoft scopes bases are like. My guess is too sloppy and would need some shims installed etc? I was thinking to detach the scope from one and use the mount. I have no need for calibrated elevation etc.

Or, I could mount the scope rigidly to a picatinny rail and use a laser to provide a reticle. On that note, where to get a cheap ir laser with 'click' adjustments - hate those Allen key ones - that is low enough power not to damage the scope. Or what about using a visible laser that has been reduced in power?

At the moment getting a UK tube with no reticle, and a few reticles from Surplus Shed.

Has anyone ever modified an AN/PVS2 to have an adjustable reticle?

Cheers for advice,

Dave

Hi. What reticle patterns you have?

Hi NVS500,
The tube I plan to use has no reticle. The surplus shed one I have on order is a plain Jane "X".
Cheers,

Dave

Thanks Sormi,

That's what's on it already. I need to either replace this or find an adapter to a weaver dovetail or picatinny rail..,
And from memory those guys don't export :(

Cheers,

Dave
