Excellent brass button compass Review by Paul
This button compass is accurate, reading magnetic North exactly with my Cammenga 3H lensatic compass. The all brass housing is a cut above the plastic button compasses on the market. The octagram needle moves smoothly and efficiently. The tritium dots are easy to see at night. Over all a durable quality product well worth having.

Whether a back up for a B.O.B. or a primary general direction compass, the FB NATO Compass will serve you well for years. I borrowed one from a friend while in the Service back in the 80's for a Recon Mission and have been impressed with it ever since.

Ordering from A.S.E. is easy, shipping was fast. I'm very satisfied with my purchase. Thank you A.S.E. (Posted on 5/10/2014)
