Swamp Fox Optics

Is anyone familiar with this company and their LVPO optics? I was looking at optics and came across this company. They are based in Colorado and appear to have opened shop in July 2018. Wanted to get thoughts from those who might have run across them. They have three versions starting at$269-399.....

Thanks in advance.

Interesting. I like the fast adjust zoom lever as stock. With a 50,000 round guarantee (marketing, but hey whatever works - just say lifetime) really no downside. I'm sure they are private branded from somebody, but that's common in every industry.

Some YouTube stuff here, haven't watched: https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...wampfox+optics

If they came in a smidge under Primary Arms/Vortex - they'd clean up I think. Reticle is cal. to 55gr out of a 16", Second Focal Plane.

Edit: Wonder if they're Batt Boys? Francis Marion?

This made me ROTF off their Instagram feed - I'm stealing it

Thanks for this, I was about to pull the trigger on another Vortex 1-8, this gave me another option, at a better price point. I'll update after a range session.

$263.19 for the 1-4 scope and mount with that code - pretty cool, thanks (didn't buy but may later). I think SFP is fine for Joe average - I can't imagine only wanting 2 or 3x for something... it'll either be 1x or 4x, so the BDC being "off" on SFP scopes wouldn't matter - for *me*. I wonder what the battery life is? If they could add a Holosun/SIG "vibration awake" to it, it would be cool.

Thanks for all the information (and coupon code). dbuck1031, let us know how it performs. Very interested in picked one up. I run a red dot at work, but am looking at one of these for my personal rifle. Never used LPVO, but was confident I could get some great info here.

Strelok Pro (maybe +?) has the Swampfox Reticles in the database.

Did all the research yesterday - definitely getting this optic, just have to decide on 4x or 6x for a 16". Vortex was out, then it was SF or PA. I like the ACSS Reticle, but the Guerrilla Dot BDC reticle seems close. Actually think Second Focal Plane is better for a 0yds-X00yds rifle - for me. Better turrets. Just need to learn how to range with it:

If you have a DD214 or Cop credentials - Swampfox is on 'ExpertVoice' with a discount more than the code that was posted here.

I had to use IE on the site, Firefox had errors - And the site is kind of a pain to register with (at least for me). But you pick a 'Group' (I picked 'SOF Veteran' - they have a bunch of others, like LE or Army, etc...) and upload redacted certs/orders/214, etc... Approval took a day. Then find Swampfox (or any other mfg, there are like 500), take 2 "Quizzes" and you get a code for multiple purchases.
