Solid Brass Full Size Sextant - 10.5"


This is very CLOSE to the 'real' thing.  A finely hand machined solid brass sextant in hardwood cabinet. Has all the working parts and mirrors on what would be a real sextant. We DO NOT recommend buying this to be used as a reliable instrument for navigation.


Can be used to take some global measurements and as a teaching tool.
