Topic review - Lensatic Compasses
Author Message
  Post subject:  Lensatic Compasses  Reply with quote
There are two types of "standard" lensatic compasses that we know of. They are identical in appearance. The NSN's are 6605-00-151-5337 and 6605-01-196-6971. When inventorying them, all you need to check is that they have a lanyard and pouch, and the needle floats (i.e. it actually rotates like it should). There's no official, published, BII list. Many compasses have had a lot of wear and tear, and the lenses might be cracked or the needles might be frozen up.... so your inventory is a good time to check these things.

For some reason, compasses are always an "issue" during change of command inventories. That's partly because they're small, easy to misplace, and a lot of people have bought "their own" compasses. So, sometimes, units tend to forget which ones are unit property vs. individual property. Plus, Soldiers frequently sign them out for PLDC / WLC / BNCOC, etc, and might PCS without realizing that the compass is unit property.
