More deets and pics of your set up? I've got a few PNVs and I've seriously considered rewiring them to be more practical.

For now, mine's just rigged on two 9V batteries with a switch, but I'm working on a CCFL transformer with condensator bank to hike up the voltage for it with my father. The goggles run on 14kV so not a trivial mod, but absolutely doable.

There was some internet forum with wire diagrams for the said transformer but name of the site escapes me right now. Same site had plans to make rhino adapters for PNVs but apparently that project died down. I machined my own crude adapter from aluminum, not gonna win any beauty contests with it but at least it works.



Obligatory pic related is art. Don't ask, I have no answer for you.

Going to the gym in my complex just now, I saw an elderly gentleman walking his dog. He was OCing a pistol in such a fashion that I'm not sure I was seeing it right. I had to get closer.

He had a slim leather holster, barrel sticking out, trigger guard barely covered, obviously meant as a concealed owb holster. The gentleman had it set up as a crossdraw holster.

Are you getting the image? It's a skinny fucking swatch of leather with minimal coverage with THE GRIP FACING OUT FOR ANY WHO WISHES TO SNATCH IT!

>"P-pardon me sir? I'm afraid I must speak."
I point.
>"That is a very poor setup."
>"Well, I like it."
And on he walked.

What crazy bullshit have you seen?

The most recent dumb shit I've seen was a police officer using a holster like this one. He was wearing coveralls, so maybe he was a pilot or something? But I was a little alarmed because I was looking down the barrel of an officer's gun, while he was refilling his soda.

Cops are fucking terrible with guns.

shoulder harnesses are popular with helicopter pilots if they aren't using a chest holster on a survival vest.

My dad couldn't have been happier. It's his 60th birthday today. He's a former DoD/Civilian Department of the Navy employee. He saw a MIRV test off the coast of Cuba in the early 80s. Currently works as a HVAC engineer.

Nice! I have a blemished tube from a PVS7 given to me by a friend in law enforcement. I've tried bidding on dead PVS7's and parts but the stateside sellers reject it for Customs teasons (itar). I keep trying anyways, hope to luck out eventually.

Where are you located? There are some Russian NV scopes that use MX10130 tubes. Not sure if we can get those in the US but maybe in Euroland.

4chan /k/ here.

I made pic related earlier last week. I have a vectorized version available as well.

I know plenty of OPERATORS love the Rhodesian camo pattern, but it is nearly impossible to find a reputable company to get reproductions from, and originals are priced so high that they cannot/should not be worn for OPERATING.

>$500 short sleeve bush shirts

I mainly wanted to do historical reproductions using similar fabric and cut as the originals, but many anons have expressed interest in a "modern" version using modern materials and cuts as well.

I have set up a poll to determine what uniform cut(s) will be manufactured:

www.surveymonkey.com/s/L7YJP2F

Both historical choices and modern choices are available. The choices are based on things posted in the original thread on 4chan.org/k/:

It's not exactly Rhodesian but there is a German company that sells airsofter stuff that contracted a while back to have a kinda-sort-Rhodesian-ish pattern made.

https://www.begadi.com/be-x-fieldjacket-opfor.html

What they've currently got left of that batch is 65-35 NYCO BDUs in a few different sizes.

I don't work for them, can't speak for the quality, and suspect shipping from Germany to North America might cost quite a bit.

But if you've got to have Rhodie camo, it's the only thing going right now that looks anywhere close to the real thing.

Trident Military used to sell "Rhodesian" (actually a somewhat similar looking Pakistani milsurp pattern) camo but they ran out of it years ago.

Ah, I just did a bit more digging.

SARCO, of all people, claims to have some surplus uniforms in a similar pattern in stock, and even printed fabric by the yard:

http://www.e-sarcoinc.com/ngo-contractor-uniforms---atafrex.aspx

Once again, I do not work for this company, and know nothing about the quality, but at the very least they seem to be offering Rhodie-style patrol caps with the flap in the back to keep the sun off the back of your neck.

The khaki base in these pictures looks quite a bit darker and yellower than in the Begadi product, but that could be the lighting. The single picture of the fabric they're selling makes it look much lighter and less saturated, almost off-white or pale grey.

Picked one of these up and in general I'm pretty happy with it, but I have two questions:

- What the hell do I do with those straps in the mag pouches?!
- Any advice on getting the stink out? I boiled it overnight with some powdered oxyclean; instead of smelling like death, it now smells like wet dog and oxyclean. Definitely an improvement, but I'd like to generally not stink, if possible.
>> No. 18211 ID: 6ca38e
If the straps are sewn into the part of the pouch that is away from the body, they are probably lifter straps. Put your mags into the pouches so that the straps are under/behind them with the top sticking out, then fasten the end to the velcro to hold them in. Need a mag in a hurry-ish, grab the strap and pull upwards to lift the mag out until you can get a decent grab on it. Never seen a chest rig use lifters like that, normally you see them on IFAKs or the like. But that's the best I can figure from the picture.

Can't help ya with the smell, unfortunately.

> straps in mag pouches

Mine didn't have those straps, did I get jibed? What sting are you talking about, mine is like 'mil surplus' smell
