The Argus BNVD-1431 Mk.II night vision binocular is an affordable articulating night vision solution that features vast improvements over the legacy. It is one of the best binocular systems for the value and is assembled in house. We are the only company in Canada working directly with Argus to improve and evaluate the BNVD-1431 series of products. Our feedback and recommendations led directly to many of the improvements made to this housing. Our weatherproofing service is no longer necessary as all changes have been made at the factory, and the Opfor Night Solutions upgrade screw kit has been supplied to the factory so all units come with them as standard.
The housing itself features articulating pods with adjustable joint tension and interpupillary stops, a central power knob that doubles variable gain control, and can be powered by a single AA battery or an external battery pack.
Our BNVD-1431 Mk.IIs make use of your choice of 1600+ FoM Photonis Echo White Phosphor, Autogated image intensifiers or NNVT White Phosphor image intensifiers. We only offer premium quality lenses with our systems from Carson Industries, and Rochester Precision Optics. Lenses are very important when it comes to image quality, and while lower quality lenses are still useable, lower quality lenses will result in lower perceived resolution, and higher perceived image distortion.

We are happy to offer Photonis 4G+ tubes on pre-order. Fulfillment is estimated for January 2023. 4G+ is the highest grade of tube offered by Photonis and is the choice for many European special military and police units. They have improved autogating, improved flare coatings, and significantly higher tube specs and quality of assembly over ECHO tubes.
4G+ Minimums are as follows:
FoM: 2200 or higher
SNR: 30 or higher
Resolution: 70 lp/mm or higher
