    Question Rattling compass

    Picked up the Silva Ranger CL this weekend. Noticed that it(the needle I assume) rattles when I move it around. It's not deafening, but could be the difference between make and break when trying to sneak up on an animal! Is this normal? I've never noticed this noise with any other compass I've used. Thoughts?

    Just checked my trusty Brunton & it does the same. I gotta say the popping in my knees & elbows is louder though :-)

    I doubt I am as quiet as that compass either, I was just surprised because I hadn't heard it before. It reads correct according to my other compasses so I guess I will take it as it is. Thanks
