BNVD Single Gain 3rd Gen XLS Green Phosphor Night Vision bino

This listing is for the BNVD Single gain control  with GREEN PHOSPHOR  Elbit systems 3rd Generation XLS GRADE  AUTOGATED TUBES.

NEW factory built units with 10 YEAR WARRANTY!!


The NVD-BNVD-SG Binocular is a dual tube goggle with gain control. The BNVD-SG operates with a single gain control knob that controls both eyepieces simultaneously. Depending upon the amount of ambient light, the user can adjust the tube brightness (gain) lower to compensate for overly bright conditions or to increase the gain under extreme dark conditions. The BNVD-SG can be used as a monocular by choosing which side you want to use as your night vision eye and rotate the other side/arm of the binocular up and out of the way. This enhanced capability allows the user to rotate either monocular channel away from their eye while leaving the other monocular channel in place. This provides the operational flexibility to use the BNVD-SG as either a dual-eye or single-eye device. When used as a monocular, the user can operate the BNVD-SG with weapon mounted sighting equipment without sacrificing night-time situational awareness. Best of all with all the added features, the BNVD-SG is still substantially lighter than the AN/PVS-7 single tube goggle!

NVD-BNVD-SG now features a “Tactical Monocular Cutoff”, which turns off power to each channel of the binocular whenever a channel is rotated up out of the users’ line of sight. This eliminates stray light emitting from the monocular eyepiece, which would reveal the user to anyone else on the battlefield. The BNVD-SG has an automatic system power cutoff whenever the BNVD-SG is flipped up into the helmet mounted stow position, and then powers back on when it is flipped back down. This feature can also be turned off via a four position ON/OFF switch. The BNVD-SG is submersible to 66 feet (20 meters) for up to 3 hours. The BNVD-SG is available with an optional battery pack, which holds 3 “AA” Alkaline batteries for run times exceeding 50 hours.

The BNVD-SG can be used with optional 3X Afocal Magnifiers. Each 3X Magnifier can be either slide onto each objective lens or screw into the threads on the objective lenses. For extended use, it is recommended to screw them on to prevent the lenses from falling off. These magnifiers transform the BNVD-SG into a fixed 3X Magnification Binocular.

 All tubes are high quality Harris/Elbit Systems tubes that come with a 10 year tube warranty which is the best in the business.


 This system complies with MIL-STD 810G, MIL-PRF-A3256342A(CR) and MIL-PREF-49427(CR).



You asked for a lower cost dual tube night vision set and we heard you. No one wanted the fragile foreign made copy housing, they all wanted a lower cost FULL FEATURED DUAL TUBE SET- the American made BNVD Single gain unit!


Since the tube is upwards of 90% of the cost of a Night vision device, in order to get a lower priced NV device you have to go to a lower cost tube. A lower cost tube in general means a lower grade or lower performing tube.


Elbit systems grades their tubes via three designations with the XLS grade of tubes on the bottom of the list. These are tubes that for whatever reason- lower SN, more blemishes, etc. did not make the cut for the higher graded SLH tubes like we use in the High Performance grade systems. 


READ- Note on XLS tubes- manufacturers grade tubes and the XLS grade tubes are the lowest grade tubes made by Elbit Systems. They offer an affordable option but you must understand the following: Every night vision tube is different but these XLS grade tubes will in general offer lower performance, lower specification and more blemishes in the tubes compared to a Elbit SLH grade tube as used in our “High Performance grade” units which are also FURTHER sorted by specification and clarity of tubes.  Your purchase of a unit with an XLS grade tubes requires your understanding of this and your acknowledgment of what they are and are not. There will in general be more cosmetic issues with the XLS lower grade tubes and in general the performance specifications could be much lower than a SLH High Performance grade unit.  Any purchase of a unit with an XLS grade tube means the customer understands and agrees to the purchase of a unit with lower performance. No “hand select” tubes for this extremely low price. You are buying a low grade tube unit because of the cheap price and the customer absolutely must understand this. We offer these xls tube units solely as a low cost alternative but we recommend if possible you look to the HIGH PERFORMANCE (HP+) SLH grade of systems where possible.

Why not a "Sentinel"?  Why not just buy a "Sentinel" dual tube set?  

Sentinels are a heavy unit that DO NOT ARTICULATE and only have a five year warranty!

Our BNVD'S DO ARTICULATE and individual channels (sides) shut off individually when you roll them up to the side (see pics) or the whole unit shuts off when you flip the entire system up in a helmet mount configuration. Sentinels do not have manual gain control, our BNVDs are available with or without manual gain control.  Our BNVDs have a 10 YEAR WARRANTY. So your getting MUCH MORE FEATURES FOR LESS MONEY WITH A LONGER WARRANTY!!!  These are the US made durable military tested housings, not the foreign knockoff DT housing with less features!

Read the review of this unit from Max Velocity of Max Velocity Tactical, one of the top names in Tactical training-

Use BATTERY PACK option to add the optional battery pack housing and pack. This absolutely HAS to be ordered with the unit and cannot be added later however  a single AA battery will run this unit upwards of 40 hours, so you may not feel the optional battery pack is even necessary, but if you ever think you will want that option, it absolutely has to be ordered with it. Call if you have any questions.

If you would like a Wilcox G24 helmet mount- use the G24 option to add a helmet mount.


If you would like a colored Housing in Flat Dark Earth use the options menu and put a "1" next to the color option you choose. If you do not choose a color the standard Black housing will be shipped. Pictures show a Flat Dark earth housing.
