    There are so many bits and pieces that the former soviet countries still have laying around and much sort after especially in Kazakhstan, which is right out on the limits.

    Be aware though of the lack of Health and Safety on many of their "tube" items like night vision, laser illuminators especially the early ones made of plastic housings and shaped like a pistol or tube based. I will see if I can find a photo so you know what to avoid. They are highly dangerous when put close to the eye.
    The best policy is, if it looks "industrial" or shows signs of being dropped steer clear of it.
    Some examples of what I mean below with the pistol grip version I alluded to with an illuminator on top which have all been dropped in service:

    Right, so better test these items with a camera rather than yourself. I think I saw something like the NVG pistol image you sent, I dismissed it as a film camera but seems I was wrong, are they worth looking into?

    not physically turned on anyway................they are what they are, so be cautious. Not worth a great deal.

    When they were issued in the late 60's early seventies, we in NATO were always told that every Rusian soldier was issued with his canvas bag and night vision aid, and it was these little beauties they referred to.
    Thats says it all if everyman was issued these, as there was literally only one nightvision aid issued to a Platoon of Britishicon soldiers at the time, which didn't really change until Afghanistan came along variants of what was called the Starlight scope.
    Not even in Iraq did we have personal access or issue to good night vision zeroed to weapons to be of any use against an enemy at night.

    I only speak for the UK, the U.S. lads may have a different tale to tell and personal issue may have been more prevalent.

    Iím 1 day away from buying these binoís and Iíve been wondering just how sensitive are they? Can you expose them to artificial lighting from 100-50m away or will that damage them? Also can you look directly at the moon with them?

    You must remember night vision devices require light particles to make them work. That light is then magnified millions of times by Electrons (power) operating the night sight, converting Photons into an image on a green phosper screen.
    To point any image intensifier at bright sources of light will only do damage.
    If you can imagine pointing a torch at a Cats eyes, you will see how quickly their iris's close right down to a slit, that will give you some idea as to the amount of light being let in, and that very same light is far too much to be intensified for the technology you have there.

    There are many new image intensifiers that will allow a certain amount of light in, but the technology is more advanced like the Holographic units going from light into darkness and changing over instantly. They have lots of protection built into them.

    1st generation tubes, will leave you with a mark on the image (or burn) which cannot therafter be removed, so always employ the rubber cover over the front lens with a pin hole dead centre, that will help protect the tube from unecessary light damage, and they can then be used in lighter scenarios, but not headlight type of light if you get my drift.
    Hope that info helps?
