The TNVC TM-EO is a low-profile mount that adapts the EOTech 3X Magnifier to the Aimpoint Twist Mount Base, allowing operators to add magnification to their red dot optic. It attaches to the EOTech 3X Magnifier via two included bolts and places it at a “tall mount” height (lower 1/3 cowitness). The Aimpoint Twist Mount System is a highly versatile QD mount for affixing various optics to a weapon through its spring-loaded base that stays semi-permanently attached to the weapon’s receiver while the mount interface stays attached to the optic accessory. When the user requires the optic, he can quickly to add it to the gun, and remove it when not needed. This lowers the profile of the overall weapon platform while reducing weight. The TNVC TM-EO marries products from the two top red dot manufacturers in the market, providing a very versatile option to the operator.


Their TM-14 Twist Mount Adapter for the AN/PVS-14 night vision goggle has been a huge success. It allows two very useful optics to be swapped on the rifle: the Aimpoint 3X Magnifier and the AN/PVS-14 goggle. But, many users of EOTech products (a significant portion of the market) have not been able to embrace the TM14 because they would have to give up their magnifiers. But fear not, EOTech users; TNVC has you covered. Simply use the TNVC TM-EO and you can have the best of both worlds!

Designed as an intermediate-range night sight, the WASP CNVD is a new Picatinny Rail compatible, Clip-On Night Vision Device offered by TNVC, Inc. Offering clear night vision between 4X and 12X, the WASP CNVD produces relies on a 70mm Catadioptric Lens System that operates at an incredibly fast f/1.14 speed. According to TNVC, the image quality rivals that of most clip-on sights on the market at powers below 10X.

TNVC Torch PRO Infrared Illuminator Update

Friday, July 6th, 2012


The other day we told you about the new Torch PRO Infrared Illuminator from Tactical Night Vision Company. Turns out, in addition to being compatible with SureFire XM and Z59 Tailcaps, the Torch PRO LED head unit is also compatible with all 2-Cell SureFire G2, 6P, and C-Series Light Bodies. Naturally, this really increases the versatility of the unit. Users who already have one of these SureFire lights in a weapon mount can simply unscrew the head and swap in the Torch PRO head for night vision operations.


TNVC Torch PRO Infrared Illuminator

Wednesday, July 4th, 2012


The TNVC Torch PRO is the latest generation of the Torch line of Infrared Illuminators and yet again, shifts the paradigm. The Torch PRO offers a clean, smooth, and focus-able beam of infrared light is emitted from its high-power LED. Seamless mechanical focus allows adjustment between 1 and 10°, offering area or point illumination at distances past 800 yards!


Encased in a sleek yet rugged aerospace-grade aluminum housing with Mil-Spec Type III Hard Anodizing, the Torch PRO’s virtually indestructible LED provides the user with the best civilian-legal IR illumination on the market. A German-made impact-resistant glass lens system produces a crisp beam while the smooth focus ring allows for easy one hand operation. The wide flood allows for area illumination at close distances, while the tight spot aids in identification of targets at long range.


While the Torch PRO is a great hand-held illuminator, its 1″ tube allows for a plethora of weapon mount options. TNVC offers the Torch Pro bundled with the VTAC Light Mount. Its Tactical Tailcap mimics familiar operating procedures from other popular lights: Press for momentary activation, twist for constant-on. A built-in switch lockout prevents accidental activation during transport or storage. The Torch PRO is designed to stand up to field abuse, including complete water submersion.

Oh, did we mention compatibility with existing Surefire, LLC tailcaps? You read that right, the TNVC Torch PRO is compatible with Surefire XM and Z59 Tailcaps! You wanted options? You got options!
