The Wilcox G22E is a variant of the extremely popular G24 night vision goggle helmet mount. The G24 has become the unofficial go-to mount for U.S. and Allied NATO SOF units. Spring-boarding off its popularity and taking into consideration operator feedback, Wilcox developed the G22E with the most notable features being the removal of the breakaway feature and the extension of the fore/aft travel rail.
The G22E features a dovetail interface for direct attachment of standard dovetail NVG’s such as Nocturn Katana, Act in Black DTNVS, and any PVS-14s that have a dovetail arm. It is one of the most adjustable mounts available with full vertical, fore/aft, and tilt adjustment to place NVG’s in proper position for operators. Incorporating operator feedback, Wilcox increased the length of travel for the horizontal adjustment, giving the G22E a total of 1.4″ (approx 1/3″ more than the legacy G24). This added length helps to better accommodate shooters wearing protective or corrective eye-wear and gas masks.
When flipped up into the stowed position, the G22E places the goggle in a more vertical orientation in front of the helmet. This helps provide a lower profile for the operator.
