Swampfox Optics Blade 1X Prism

Do you find that the dot in your red “dot” sight is more like a smear or even a series of several small dots mashed together? If so, a 1X prism optic with an adjustable diopter, like the new Blade from Swampfox Optics, may be just what the doctor… er, optometrist, ordered.

Blade is the mission-driven 1x prism scope dedicated for home defense and law enforcement. Blade’s revolutionary Bullet Rise Compensating reticle compensates for optic height over bore at just 5, 10, and 15 yards when mounted on an AR-15. Available with red or green illumination, Blade’s etched reticle appears black when illumination is off. Shake ‘N Wake motion-sensing auto on/off saves battery life and is perfect for home defense. Blade is an excellent choice for shooters with astigmatism who have issues with dot sights. When you need speed and precision at in-your-face distances, trust the Blade.

Swampfox Optics Launches Arrowhead LPVO Series (1-6x, 1-8x, 1-10X)

Swampfox Optics just released their newest series of optics – the Arrowhead series. This new series is touted as their “duty rated” and even “bugaloo rated” line of low power variable optics (LPVO).

The Arrowhead line includes 1-6×24, 1-8×24, and 1-10×24 options with a choice of a BDC reticle or Swampfox’s Guerilla Dot MOA reticle. The reticle is in the second focal plane. The features include finger adjustable locking turrets, an included throw lever, daylight bright illumination with off positions between each setting on the illumination rheostat, and premium glass.

Many of the current crop of affordable 1-8x and 1-10x optics on the market have a tight field of view and small eye box. Swampfox claims that they have engineered their optics to have a generous field of view without constricting the eye box.

Swampfox Optics Adds New Scope Rings

Swampfox Optics is now offering two new scope ring options – the Hostile Engagement and Freedom Rings. Both types of rings aim to be high quality at an accessible price. They are machined from 7075 aluminum with hard coat anodized finish and are available in either 1.60″ or 1.93″ heights.

The Hostile Engagement Rings differ from the Freedom Rings in that they have mounting surfaces for MRD style options machined directly into the ring. There is a mounting surface on both the left and right side of both rings in a set.


New from Swampfox Optics: Spear Duplex

Swampfox Optics has rolled out a brand new reticle option in their Tomahawk LPVO line and it is one that really bucks the trends of heavy, floating, horseshoe reticles.

The new Spear Duplex features a floating central dot aiming point and cross hairs with heavy outer edges for the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock crosshairs (similar to a German #4). The central dot size varies across the Tomahawk line (2 MOA in the 1-4X, 1.5 MOA in the 1-6X, and 1.3 MOA in the 1-8X). The crosshairs are offset from the central aiming point by 2MOA (4MOA from crosshair to crosshair) which makes for a useful bullet drop and ranging reference.

This reticle could be a good option for a number of users who require a simple sight picture and a zero for maximum point-blank range. With SBRs and AR pistols at an all-time high in popularity, this reticle could be a great choice for someone wants to add an LPVO to their shorter barreled firearm that won’t match with many of the BDC style reticles on the market. It could also be a great option for hunting and field rifles that will rarely be shot at more than 300 yards.

The Spear Duplex is available now across the entire Tomahawk LPVO line.


Swampfox Optics News – 1X Prismatic Scope in the Works

Prismatic optics with 1X magnification are an attractive alternative to red dot sights for many shooters. These optics often feature a diopter adjustment to fine tune the focus and an etched reticle, both of which help mitigate astigmatism and other common vision problems. Prismatic optics are even being used to wring out a little bit of extra precision in competitions like the Tactical Games where a 1X optic is required.

Swampfox Optics has released some details regarding a 1X prismatic optic that they are working to bring to market. We already know many of the basic details of the optic. The reticle will apparently have a large ring with either a central dot or chevron aiming point. If it is a chevron, it will likely be larger than the one used on the Primary Arms Cyclops and the reticle will likely forgo any ranging features.

The illumination will be powered by a single CR123A battery which is located beneath the optic. This will create a fixed lower 1/3rd cowitness mounting height on an AR15 (or similar). Swampfox Optics is planning to offer it in both “shake awake” and “auto-off, push to reactivate” configurations.

Swampfox Optics Marketing Director, Mike Branson, states that one of his design objectives for the optic is to have a larger forgiving eye box. In his words, “I want eyebox, eyebox, and oh yeah more eyebox.” If this optic is to be a true red dot replacement, it will need plenty of eye box.

As of the time of this writing, there is no estimate for when this optic will be available. Details on the production optic may change before it actually makes it to market. Stay tuned for more information.
