What is a Dove Tail Mount?
The Photonis Defense Breakaway mount is a mounting solution for your BNVD’s, Panobridge, or Mod Armory Bridge that enables you a secure attachment to a bump or ballistic helmet. Helmet mounting your night vision is superior in most cases as it offers the most flexibility of use (navigation, scanning, shooting both passive and IR) over simply holding a unit in your hand. Dovetail attachments are common on binocular night vision devices. Some of these units include: PVS-7B/D, PVS-14, PVS-7A/7C, PVS-15, PVS-18, PVS-21, & PVS-31. If you want to run a panobridge and two PVS14’s, or two MH25’s, or an MH25 & one PVS14, this dovetail mount will allow attachment to your helmet with the panobridge or Mod Armory Bridge (also available on our site).
What makes this mount so great?
The Photonis breakaway mount is very similar to the Wilcox G24 mount. Users of G24 mounts will feel at home with this mount. With that being said, the functions and adjustment knobs are in slightly different positions on the Photonis mount. Users will press a button to flip units down into action. Adjustments for tilt and fore and aft adjustments are very simple and intuitive to use.
