    Look around, you can find used PVS14 in your range. Just make sure to get the spec sheet and have people that know what you're looking at to determine if its GTG or not.

    What are you going to be using it for? I was in the same boat and found a good deal on an nyx gen2+. I had never used NV but was pretty impressed right out of the gate (ignorance may be bliss) on the performance vs some of the stuff I had read. I use it for hunting and general navigation at night and it works great.

    I’m sure gen 3 is better but I’m not kicking in doors and on a short budget it has worked great.
