They are readily available at most gun supply houses and on the internet.
Night vision sights, binoculars, scopes, etc. but very expensive! Try cabelas or Midway, Brownells.

Night Vision binoculars and scopes are perfectly legal to buy over the counter and any good gun shop and even Wally World will have them.

This will get you to a commercial distributor for the ITT AN/PVS-14, a night vision monocular that is the current issue for the US army. This is a great sight and if you wear it on your non dominant side, you can aim your weapon without removing it. Or if you have a red dot optic on the gun, you can wear it on your shooting side, set the optic to it's lowest daylight setting (I don't like military NVG settings, they're too low if there's any ambient light)and keep the rifle in a centerline hold while looking through the sight with your NODs. There are many different techniques and tricks of the trade when operating under NODs, but for the equipment itself, go with this device. And if money is not a factor, I recommend you buy two of them. I need a set too.

the AN-PVS14 is a superb monocular, I do recommend however that what ever you decide on, check the generation. Every night vision device has a generation wich is basically the technology that it uses. To my knowledge wich doesnt go very far, the highest generation available is generation III (3) it is what the standard military NOD's use and is very effective. Good luck
