Dynamic Tactical
Shooting & 3-Gun

The affordably priced, highly versatile, crystal clear
Low-Powered-Variable-Optic you have been waiting
for is here. Meet the Tomahawk.


Both the BDC and MOA illuminated etched reticles are designed to instantly acquire your target at short and medium range from a preset zero at 50/200 yards.


With the true 1x optical performance, this riflescope and its reticles are designed to act like a red dot sight at short range. Keep both eyes wide open and maintain focus on the single focal plane of the target.


Crank up the magnification and have confidence in those long range shots with ultra bright sight picture and reticles designed with ranging and long range holdovers.

Secondary Focal
Plane (SFP)

The larger reticle vs. the target size at lower magnifications afforded by the SFP is Ideal for 3-Gun, allowing you to find, and drill, short range targets faster.

Bolo Throw Lever

Because your holdovers are only accurate at the highest magnification, the Bolo Throw Lever included with the scope allows you to crank up and slam down the magnification in a split second.

1-8x24 with Guerrilla Dot BDC

Superior Optical

The Tomahawk series smashes the myth that you
need to spend half your paycheck to get clear,
good quality glass.

Bright and Clear
Sight Picture

The Tomahawk boasts edge to edge optical clarity throughout the magnification range.

True 1x

Impressive true 1x magnification. Get on target faster without changing and adjusting your eyes to focus on through a scope without true 1x. Magnification.

Quality Glass,
Premium Coatings

Containing rare earth metals, the glass is optimized for maximum resolution and brightness. The lenses are fully multi-coated for maximum light absorption and anti-reflection, and sports extra specialty coatings for anti-fog, anti-scratch, and hydrophobic performance.

An Eye Box
With Latitude

Usually riflescopes at this price range have a limited margin of error for eye placement, creating ellipses and blocking the full sight picture. The Tomahawk widens this margin of error, providing more flexibility in acquiring your target picture in situations that prevent your standard shooting position.

Fast Focus

Everybody’s eyes are different. The fast focus diopter allows for micro adjustments to maximize crisp, in-focus images.

Eye Relief &
Field of View

The optic system is a finely tuned machine, allowing for generous eye relief while maximizing field of view. You won’t get fatigued looking through this scope.

Zero Reset Turrets

Zero reset turrets provide more flexibility and just work better than most zero-lock turret systems. Zero the scope to your preferences and adjust your dial markings to mark your ‘zero’. Always know where your zero is without counting clicks. Great for turret dialers. For those using the BDC reticle, set your zero and leave the turrets alone- and if it accidently turns, simply dial it back to zero with a quick twist.

Glass Etched
Illuminated Reticles

The 11 position illumination turret provides crisp
reticle clarity for both low light and bright
daytime conditions.

Guerrilla Dot BDC

Calibrated for the AR platform with a 16” barrel and using 5.56 NATO 55gr FMJ, this reticle does it all. It has a 2 MOA quick strike red dot, an 18” outer circle for quicker strikes at short range, holdovers out to 600 yards, and ranging capabilities for plinker plates and human shoulders out to 500 yards.

Guerrilla Cross MOA

This reticle combines quick strike capabilities as well as standard MOA markings for windage and elevation adjustments. It has a red cross with a 0.5MOA center crosshair, and an 18” outer illuminated circle. Use the red illumination markings for quick strike capabilities, and the black markings for more standard MOA calculations.

Takes a Beating,
Holds Zero

Ever have that feeling that you need to treat your gun with kid’s gloves because you are worried about damaging the glass? Well, you can shed that mindset with Swampfox. The Tomahawk is shock resistant to 1,100 G-Forces, waterproof, sand proof, and pretty much gorilla proof.

    Surprising under-rated ...

    Posted by Rusty in Oregon on Feb 13th 2019

    THIS is a great optic, that surprised me because I'd never heard of the company until I saw a review online. Wanted a little more magnification than the common 1x6, but didn't want covered turrets since I like making my own distance adjustments. This optic has crystal-clear edge-to-edge glass, bright illumination, smooth but firm adjustments for magnification and diopter, and seems solidly built all the way around. Compares very favorably with much more expensive optics I own and shoot. This one is lining up to be a new favorite for AR-15 shooting in the CCB to 200 yard range.

    So far so good

    Just received my optic this week. Took it to the range and zeroed it in. Glass is clear. Turrets are very nice and clicky. I still have to do more testing with it. But for a really good price point optic I give it 5 stars. Also their customer service was great. There's only 2 companies I would use now for price point optics and SwampFox is one of them.

    Awesome quality out of the box. Just a sleek clean design for your own application for your favorite AR platform rifle. This is not a paid for endorsement just amazed at the quality for the money!
