M-88 Warrior's Compass
Francis Barker Military Liquid Prismatic Compass
The Francis Barker traditional military liquid prismatic compass is currently in service with many defense forces around the world, and has been for many years. It is the compass that officers of the British Army have used for many generations. New lands and territories were surveyed, Empires were built, and military victories won as a result of the ability to accurately determine position and direction. Francis Barker also made the compass and sundial that Dr. Livingstone used on his Africa expeditions. His company also made a garden sundial for Charles Dickens, and precision instruments for many other illustrious citizens and noblemen since it was founded in 1848.
The M-88s prism sighting system allows the user to shoot extremely accurate azimuths. Quick, precise settlement of the liquid filled dial assembly allows for rapid use of the compass in field conditions. Five self-luminous tritium light sources enable night operation.
Extensive environmental testing and rigorous quality control measures ensure that the M-88 can operate with precision in the most difficult climatic conditions.
The M-88 makes an outstanding gift for: departing leaders; newly commissioned officers or NCOs; graduates (Ranger School, Q-Course, BUD/S, OCS, Sniper School, etc.).
The M-88 Warrior’s Compass is built to the same exacting standards as the M-73, but is made from aluminum alloy to reduce weight and cost. It is extremely accurate and dependable with tritium for night use.
