Delivery Time and Manufacturing Process for ATN PVS7-3 Night Vision Goggles:

Most of our manufacturers do not keep products like ATN PVS7-3 Night Vision Goggles assembled on the shelf. Night Vision tubes are kept separate from the body of the unit. When the order is placed, the manufacturer starts the order processing and assembly process which includes the following:

  • Order processing - we collect all the necessary information including address and phone numbers. We also make sure that our customer ordered the correct product for their needs and that the product can be exported by US law to the country of destination. In some cases a signed export compliance form is required.
  • QC - in this step the manufacturer will inspect all individual parts which will be used to assemble the night vision device for any defects.
  • Production & Assembly - during production, all the parts are put together. Night Vision tubes in inserted into the body of the unit and all the complex electronics for the device are connected. This process takes place in a special lab called the "clean room" as even a small speckle of dust can cause undesired optical effect.
  • QA - one the night vision device is assembled, it goes through a rigorous testing process to make sure it meets all the expected specifications and all parts function as expected. For this most manufacturers have a special "dark room" designed to allow testing of the units without causing incidental damage to the night vision tube by exposure to bright light.
  • Packaging - this is a key process as well. In most case your night vision device will be shipped to you directly from the manufacturer but sometimes needs to be sent to us first. In either case items need to be packaged securely to avoid any kind of damage during transportation.
  • Shipping - as described above items will most of the time ship from the manufacturer. For most domestic orders (unless shipping to POB or AFB) a premium shipper like FedEx or UPS will be used.

Only by following the above steps can we along with our manufacturers bring you - our customer - night vision products of highest quality, However as you can understand the above process can take several days to complete. For example if your device fails QA, the entire process restarts. Also at QC stage a manufacturer may realize that the tube they have in stock has a defect and a replacement tube needs to be ordered. Due to the complexity of this process, it is prudent to expect 3-4 business days for production and handling of the purchased device. Keep in mind that this process is designed to guarantee your satisfaction with the night vision device of your choice.  It occasionally possible to expedite the process for urgent orders but addional fees or other restrictions may apply.

From on

Q: Is this a better set of goggles than the nyx 7 pro gen alpha? If so why is it. Question#2 How long are the black Friday coupons good for?

A: Hi Wes. If you are looking for a night vision goggle set, there are two way to go. One option is to buy a pvs7. PVS7 is a standard military issue design. These units can come with a variety of night vision tubes and you can pick the one according to your needs and budget. The other option is a PVS7 look alike goggle like NYX7 for example. These units tend to be cheaper at the same tube level and their accessories are often cheaper as well. There is not much difference in terms of functionality. We like NYX 7 PRO very much, if you however decide to get a PVS7, you should consider one of the Night Vision Depot models. They are direct distributor of ITT and will offer the best value for PVS7. Please let us know if you need any further help.
