US Military Tritium Compass

Official US military Lensatic Compass
NSN 6605-01-196-6971

(newest version)

This Tritium Illuminated Military Lensatic Compass has been used by U.S. troops, foreign militaries, search and rescue, law enforcement, and special forces.

Built to the demanding specification MIL-PRF-10436N, battle tested through rigorous shock, water, sand proof, and functional from -50o F to +150o F.

A total of seven Tritium light sources provide maintenance free readability in total darkness for 10 years without external power or the need to "recharge" using a flashlight.
The compass features a sapphire bearing and the card is induction damped for fast settling with an accuracy of +/- 2 mils.

The compass card has both the standard 0 - 360 degree scale, as well as the 0 - 64 Mil scale (one yard at 1,000 yards). The bezel rotates with detents every 3 degrees so you can change the heading reference a known amount without looking at the compass.

The front sight has a magnifier to simultaneously view the magnetic heading when taking a sight.

When unfolded flat, the marching compass has a straight edge with a standard 1:50,000 map scale. The folded compass measures 3 inches (7.6 cm) long, 2 1/4 inches (5.7 cm) wide, 1 1/8 inch (2.9 cm) thick, and weighs only 5.3 ounces (150 grams). This compass is protected by a durable waterproof cast aluminum case painted olive drab.
