AN/PVS-7 & AN/PVS-14 NVD: ACH Lever Bracket Supply Sub

BLUF: Due to a production delay for the Night Vision Device (NVD) Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH) lever bracket, order the next higher assembly, NSN 5855-01-610-8704, as a substitute for the AN/PVS-14 and AN/PVS-7 for now, but you'll pay more.

Take note, Soldiers.

The advanced combat helmet (ACH) lever bracket, NSN 5340-01-509-1467, supports the AN/PVS-7 & AN/PVS-14 night vision device (NVD). There are currently delays in lever bracket production.

For units that have critical/high priority requisitions for the ACH lever bracket, there's stock available for the next higher assembly (NHA), NSN 5855-01-610-8704. However, there are some important things to know:
  •  The difference between the current cost of the lever bracket alone ($66.48) versus the NHA ($120) is considerable. For example, an order for 100 lever brackets with the NHA costs an additional $5,352. For existing orders, units must understand and agree to the price increase. For new orders, the correct price will already be included.
  •  Some of the currently open orders are old enough they may no longer be valid. CECOM can assist in cancelling the orders.
  •  If an order is valid and the unit doesn’t want the NHA, then the order will remain open and be filled based on priority when the delayed lever brackets become available.
