thats why I want it.

there are no AN/PVS scope's in the classified's the only gen1 NV scope is a shitty Yukon, not nearly as hilarious because it's a normal looking scope (not ridiciously big) and it's shitty on top of that.

Like I said if anyone can point me to a AN/PVS in canada or one of equal dimension's please do.

I'm not looking for any old Gen1 if I was going to just get a NV scope because of it's NV capability I'd buy a top of the line unit and not even waste my time with Gen1 night vision.

I'm looking at this because of it's sheer laughable size, not because it's night vision or Gen1 or what it's capabilities are, like I said, don't care about functionality or practicality and I can't seem to find any in Canada so I looked abroad

Ive read up on ITAR and it's only given me a headache, just a bunch of crap explaining what it is, no list of can's and cannot's for export like our's has written down,

EDIT, just found more about NV on ITAR, it spoke of gen3 and gen2 require's export permit (AKA you'll never get one) but it doesn't even mention anything about gen1, it just goes to thermal/flir
