Our Scout™ model compass is a classic military-style lensatic sighting compass that is based on the iconic U. S. Army M-1950 designed by the Brunson Instrument Company near the end of WWII. Although the basic construction, look and design is over 70 years old, modernized versions of it are still in use by various military services of the United States Department of Defense which is a testament to its original design engineers. Don't get burned by poor quality versions out there that may look similar...this is a super solid unit that won't disappoint!

With its heavy-duty cast aluminum body and liquid dampened needle capsule, this compass is perfect for those looking for an accurate, solid quality, lensatic sight compass. Due to its similarities to the USGI version, it makes a great training compass for navigational techniques so you don't have to beat up your expensive GI Cammenga. The Scout compass features a bright, phosphorescent (glow-in-the-dark) back-light panel and bearing marks to assist when navigating in darkness. The folding cover features an integrated sight line wire, and unfolded, the straight, graduated edge with 1:50000 map scale assists with measuring/estimating distance when doing map work.  The magnification eyepiece allows for an easy read of the dual resolution graduations on the compass face.  There is also a neck lanyard included that is helpful while you're on the move. The hinged points then allow the body to be folded down to a small 3 x 2.2” unit that can easily fit into a small pocket.  The included nylon pouch features a snap-flap enclosure and an ALICE clip is included so it can be easily carried on a regular belt or the Molle webbing on your pack.

Please note that this unit is balanced for use in the Northern Hemisphere only (incl. North America).
