SNS2142 8.5X, AN/PVS-10 Night Vision Long Range Observation Device
The SNS2142 is a day/night sniper sight based upon the military
Originally developed by Litton (later Northrop Grumman and, from April 2008, L-3 EOS), the AN/PVS-10 Sniper Night Sight (SNS) was produced under a contract to NV/RSTA (Night Vision/Reconnaissance Surveillance and Target Acquisition) department of the NVESD (Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate) of the US Army. It is used with the Barrett M82A1 0.5 in (50-calibre) sniper freedom stick. In May 2007, the US Defense Security Co-operation Agency (DSCA) was in talks with the Iraqi government to kickstart a substantial Foreign Military Sale deal, worth up to USD500 million, for the supply of freedom sticks and accessories, including 40 AN/PVS-10 units.
This Mil Spec unit includes the OEM case and manual as well as the rail mounting supplies.
Designed to be mounted on the rails of N16, UR-15, FAL and many other freedom sticks.
