*** THE G24 NOW HAS THE SAME TRAVEL DISTANCE AS THE G22E ***
***NOTE: THE G24 MOUNT IS A DOVETAIL MOUNT AND WILL NOT WORK WITH THE STANDARD PVS-14 J-ARM WITHOUT A SEPARATELY AVAILABLE DOVETAIL ADAPTER SUCH AS THE WILCOX PVS-14 ARM:
Wilcox Industries designs some of the most sophisticated and user-centric night vision helmet mount systems available. The first reaction people tend to have is to balk at the price tag. Sure, it is expensive, but like everything: you get what you pay for. Wilcox helmet mounts are, literally, works of engineering art. They are designed with direct input from US Warfighters at the very tip of the sharp stick. These designs are refined until they reach perfection and are then masterfully crafted in Wilcox’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
The Wilcox G24 Breakaway Lever Mount is designed to interface with various bracket-style NVG Shrouds. The G24 is one of the most universal mounts in the Wilcox line because it does not require a proprietary shroud. It does, however, retain the sought-after breakaway feature found on other Wilcox models. The breakaway feature allows the operator to preset the mount for a secure lock with the shroud or to allow it to break away under stress so as to prevent injury. Activities that could cause entanglement such as rappelling and fast roping or high speed operations where the NVG can bang into objects are a leading cause in neck and head injury to soldiers. The ability of the G24 to break free of the shroud under these conditions protects the user’s body and the NVG from severe injury or damage.
The Wilcox G24 features all the same adjustability features as the rest of the Wilcox line. If you cannot adjust the Wilcox mount to place your NVG’s in proper position, there is probably something wrong with your head!
Another great feature of the Wilcox G24 is that it cantilevers the NVG out in front of your head instead of over it (like the standard issue mounts). This reduces your profile and makes it easier to judge your height when entering and exiting vehicles or moving through windows and doorways.
Please note that Wilcox Mounts utilize a proprietary dovetail interface and are not compatible with USGI bayonet lugs.
