Wasn't thrilled with the quality

    The compass itself worked incredibly well! There was never any question as to whether the needle was pointing North, or if it was binding. The compass worked great. The declination adjustment was nice. I was thrilled that it was made in the states... until I wondered why it clicked as I turned the azimuth ring. I realized the sighting "tower" nearest the cover was glued in crooked interfering with the ring and also causing readings to be slightly off. I decided to ignore this until I realized that the thermometer was also off by 10 degrees. I didn't buy this for the thermometer, but I figure it it's on there it should read accurately. You know? So is it possible that you may get one that wasn't assembled on a Friday? Sure, but I decided to look for something a little higher-end after this and took advantage of backcountry's excellent return policy.

    I received your compass for fathers day....

    I received your compass for fathers day. I am more familiar to the hand adjustable declination compasses. So this tool free adjustment, unless I missed something should the little yellow arrow still move around all the time?
