I'm looking online for a sighting compass and have seen prices ranging from $12 to $170. Will a cheaper one be OK for surveying properties? Anyone have any recommendations?

When I am running property lines this is what I use. I have used it on forestry contracts requiring accuracy of +/- 3 compass degrees and never had a problem. I find the peep compass to be considerably more user friendly and accurate than sighting compass. The only issue is it does not have a declination adjustment.
