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 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 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 0.5MOA 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? Well, 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.

The Guerrilla Cross MOA hybrid reticle is designed for rapid target acquisition in Close Quarter Battle as well as precision shooting for longer shots.


Need for speed is the name of the game in Close Quarter Battle. Focus on the illuminated portions of the Guerrilla Cross reticle when you need to strike fast.


The red illuminated circle has an outer diameter of 19 MOA, and an inner diameter of 16 MOA. For targets up to 200 yards, when speed is critical and you just need a hit rather than precise placement, aim big and frame your target in the horseshoe and fire.


The center illuminated cross has a total diameter of 4 MOA, cut in 2 MOA increments east to west, and from north to south. If speed is the still the name of the game but a bit more accuracy is required, focus on placing the entire cross on your target as you squeeze off your kill shot.


The center illuminated cross is comprised of 0.5 MOA thick lines, providing a precise crosshair that won't block your view on small targets. The center crosshair allows you to achieve tight groupings from 50-200 yards.


Inner bars represent 12 MOA, equivalent to a 12" Plinker plate @ 100 yards

A 12" plinker plate @ 200 yards, equivalent to 6 MOA

Man's shoulders [19"/20") @ 100 yards, equivalent to 20 MOA

Man's shoulders @ 500 yards, equivalent to 4 MOA


In order to range targets or objects with the Guerrilla MOA, the shooter needs to know how to use the MOA Ranging formula:

Target Size (inches) x 95.5"

Image Size in MOA

= Range in Yards

In order to obtain accurate range, you need to know the size of the target. Using either the vertical or horizontal hash marks, measure the MOA of the object that has a known size. The reticle has various points of reference to measure MOA, including the black hash marks which are all indicated in increments of 2 MOA.

Example #1: Assuming this combatant is 6 feet [72 inches) tall, and his body length comprises 15 MOA in your reticle, how far away is he?

72 x 95.5"

15 MOA

= 460 Yards

    Initial review of Swampfox Tomahawk 1-4x.

    Posted by David nathanson on Aug 12th 2019

    A bit of back story, I was looking to replace my UTG 3x magnifier with either Vortex or Holosun magnifier. When I started researching I came upon LVPO sights and decided this might be a better route. After a lot of research and I ended up buying a Bushnell 1-4x24 Illuminated BTR-1. This was a FFP scope and even with the great reviews it did not fit my needs. Reticle was too small at 1x for me to use comfortably and it never got mounted. Shortly after I ordered, Mike from Swampfox had contacted me and told me about the Tomahawk. After I sent the Bushnell back, I had multiple conversations with Mike. He was hugely informative and passionate about the product line and I placed my order for the Tomahawk 1-4x scope, with their gorrila dot reticle and mount. One last caveat these are the only 2 rifle scopes I have used, and my Holosun 515c.

    Packaging was good with a lot of foam inside, and very professional looking with instructions for the optic and the reticle. All parts and tools needed came with including battery, and throw lever.

    Scope look was nicely finished in a matte black with matte white (light grey) branding that was subtle and not obnoxious. The Bushnell had a more gloss finish with a 2x2 metallic sticker on the ocular end.

    Glass is to my inexperienced eye is very clear and bright, with no distortion. Better then the Bushnell and much better than the holosun. After mounting looking at my 25 yard target I could clearly see it under the reticle on 1x. I needed the magnifier with the holosun to get the same clarity.

    Mounting was easy with the help of their video and cantilever mount. The only difficulty was picking a location on the rail because of the huge eye relief. I'm used to nose against charging handle and back off. I actually needed to extend my brace to use the scope. I mounted the scope as far forward on the top rail of the receiver with out going onto the handguard. Eye relief is huge and mounting height makes it very comfortable to shoot.

    Reticle choosen was the Gorilla Dot and it is clear and precise. Not really sure how well holdover will work with 300blk. Strelok Pro version has all 3 reticle styles in the app. Illumination is very bright. Almost too bright on the higher settings causing a red ring around the scope even in bright daylight. The lower intensities are great and more than sufficient. Reticle was very visible in bright light even without illumination.

    Zeroing was easy with very positive and audible clicks. Zero with 115g supers was quick and simple. It was very easy to reset the turrets back to zero for the round chosen. I plan to also zero for subsonic and make note of the change for flexibility.

    Over all I am very pleased with the purchase and overwhelmed by the support provided by Mike. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested.

    Great Optic/Awesome Reticle

    Posted by Jeremy Standifird on Jul 16th 2019

    Superbly constructed body with fantastic glass. This is better than any of the bigger brands with similar, yet more expensive, offerings. What I love most is the reticle. The guerrilla cross MOA provides the perfect MOA design for fast acquisition at any magnification. And the illumination is great, making it all the better. I use it on my 6.8 SPC, and since Strelok Pro has this scope and reticle combo, I can create my dope sheets with ease. Well done, Swampfox. Welcome to the big-time!

    Sturdy and Clear

    Posted by Cameron A on Jan 17th 2019

    This optic upon unboxing was quite impressive. No blemishes or machining marks. turrets and dials all have very positive adjustments/clicks. The glass is probably one of the most impressive parts. Its extremely clear. Durability, tracking and zero hold have yet to be tested, but if my observations so far are any indicator, i'm sure this optic will serve me well once its put into use
