Here is some additional information that I found:

Data on the end of the intensifier tube -
ITT 272692-35 S/N 537XXX DC841

There is a 7-digit number engraved on the side.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for a replacement?

i'd say get a 10160a or 10160c type tube and it would not be too hard to fit it in - but make sure the tube is the damaged part and not just the housing - switch - wiring - contacts - etc. must have been a bad drop to damage the tube

I agree, must have been a bad or unlucky drop to damage a tube. Check the tube by applying 3 volt from CR123 direct to the tube connection pads to see if it lights up. This will confirm where the damage is, if it lights up damge is to the wiring in the housing.
If its the tube any MX10160 tube should fit your budget will the the limit on the spec's/age of the tube.

cheers

I sent this into ITT and it does have a damaged intensifier tube... Looks like I will be replacing it with another one. Is an F9800VG a drop in replacement for my damaged tube? What could I expect to pay for it?
