The Swampfox Tomahawk 1-8x24 is hands down the best value LVPO on the market today. This optic provides clarity, durability and accuracy that is unrivaled by any other 1-8x Low-Power-Variable-Optic at similar price points. Sporting a Second Focal Plane (SFP) glass etched illuminated reticle designed for dynamic shooting, and a throw lever for rapid magnification adjustment, this highly versatile scope is ideal for 2 & 3-gun competitions. Choose between three different reticle options: the Guerrilla Dot BDC™, Guerrilla Cross MOA™, and the Spear Duplex™.


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 50/200 yard battle sight zero.


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


Crank up the magnification and have confidence in those long range shots with the Tomahawk's ultra bright sight picture. Both illuminated, glass etched reticles incorporate ranging and long range holdover aiming cues.

Second Focal
Plane (SFP)

The larger reticle vs. the target size at lower magnifications afforded by the SFP is ideal for 3-Gun competition or tactical shooting, allowing you to find and hit those short range targets faster.

Included Throw Lever

Because your holdovers are only accurate at the highest magnification, the included throw lever allows you to crank up or 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 entire magnification range.

True 1x

Impressive true 1x magnification. An instant 1x sight picture gets you on target faster, without having to adjust your eyes' focus.  

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

Rifle scopes at this price range often have a limited margin of error for eye placement, creating ellipses and blocking the full sight picture unless your eye is positioned perfectly. The Tomahawk widens this margin of error, providing more speed and flexibility in acquiring your sight picture at full magnification.

Fast Focus

Everybody’s eyes are different. The fast focus adjustable ocular allows for micro adjustments to keep the reticle sharp at all times, whether illumination is on or off.

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. This system works great for shooters who prefer to dial for windage and elevation. For shooters using the reticle holdovers, set your zero and leave the turrets alone- and if the turret somehow gets bumped, simply dial it back to zero with a quick twist.

Glass Etched
Illuminated Reticles

The 11 position illumination turret provides crisp
reticle contrast 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 1.3 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 humanoid target shoulders out to 500 yards.

Guerrilla Cross MOA

This reticle combines quick strike capabilities as well as standard MOA hash marks for windage and elevation adjustments. It features a center cross with a 0.5 MOA center aiming point at the cross intersection, and an 18” outer illuminated circle. Use the red illumination markings for quick strike capabilities, and the black markings for standard MOA ranging and holdover calculations.

Spear Duplex

The Spear Duplex reticle is a simple, clean crosshair surrounding a center dot that can be illuminated in red. Fast and uncluttered, Spear Duplex offers no ranging, bullet drop compensation, or other advanced features. Zero in so that the center dot matches the point of impact at your preferred distance, and enjoy the simple, instinctive shooting experience.

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? You can shed that mindset with Swampfox. The Tomahawk is shock resistant to 1,100 Gs of shock, waterproof, sand proof, and pretty much gorilla proof.

    A breakthrough at this price point

    Posted by Dan K. on Jul 10th 2019

    Let's face it, inexpensive Chinese scopes feel it, no matter whose name is on them. Not this time.

    Packaging is not cheaply done. When unboxed, it FEELS like a Leupold quality tube, the right combination of weight and lack of bulk to give you confidence. Glass is good, way better than you would expect. eye box is as forgiving as they claim, adjustments are crisp, illumination is extremely bright, the throw lever could maybe use a fatter screw but at this point I am basically looking for something to complain about just so I don't come across as an unhinged fanboy.

    Very impressed.

    1-8 tomahawk

    Posted by Hunter on Jul 5th 2019

    Great optic for the price point! Little fuzzy at 8 power, but super clear glass 6 power and down, low light situation very clear through the optic. Definitely would buy again, but would opt for the 1-6. Roughed and dependable

    Tough optic

    Posted by Gary Wallace on Apr 26th 2019

    i used the Tomahawk 1-8 this year for coyote hunting. my rifle lives a hard life during season. in and out of the truck, NEVER in a case. thrown in the back seat. banging off creek banks and iron gates in all kinds of weather and cold temps. the scope performed beautifully and repeats excellent. glass was clear the whole year in all conditions. you won't be disappointed.

    Used for varmint hunting

    Posted by Gary Wallace on Apr 18th 2019

    i used this scope in full on GI field conditions for coyote hunting. Cold weather, banging of gates and brush. in and out of vehicles, never in a rifle case. i found this to be a solid optic. repeatable adjustments and clear glass in all conditions. the ONLY reason i gave it 4 stars is i would like a zero stop added. in low light it would be nice to dial it down to the stop and know where you're at in elevation. sometimes in and out of vehicles optic knobs are rubbed and can move. it wasn't much of an issue with this scope but i like zero stops on my scopes. BUT it is a great optic. i used the cross hair reticle. looking forward to a PRS scope!

    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

    Posted by Chris on Jan 12th 2019

    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!
