Description

With the lensatic compass opened wide and held level, turn it horizontally until the azimuth is directly under the black index line. Holding the compass in this position, rotate the bezel until the luminous indicator is over the N arrow of the dial. With a basic understanding of land navigation, you will be able to safely navigate your position with ease. This handheld compass is water resistant, sand proof and constructed with a powder coated aluminum frame for top endurance. Accurate to +/- 40 mils, it works impeccably time and time again. Performs perfectly in temperatures ranging from -50° F to 150° F. 

You can choose between two versions, one comes available equipped with multiple Tritium micro-lights, providing uninterrupted illumination for over 10 years. The phosphorescent (glow in the dark) version has been used as a reliable substitute to the tritium model for decades. It is the same compass that has served the US military except that the self-luminous tritium has been replaced with phosphorus paint.  A tool that no one should be without when the situation calls. This item is in short quantity, so invest in your gear now and don’t wait till its too late. Color: OD green. Dimensions: 6” x 4” x 3” carry case included equipped with single A clip.

Is this a new or used item?

My Compass arrived unused in brand new condition. The enclosed pouch was also unused like brand new.

What is the manufacture year on these? I want to purchase a tritium but want to know how old they are.

Apologies but compass was purchased as gift for avid hiker, but with full endorsement of friend who has served in military for over 10 years. Military friend stated it was exactly like the one he was issued for survival training.

Tritium has a service life. What date of manufacture do these version have, please? It was a sad day when I had to replace the tritium sights on my Smith & Wesson 1006 10mm.... jussayin.

For the price, it was a piece of junk. I wouldn't spend a nickel trying to fix it.
