Swampfox – Liberty & Justice

Swampfox Optics announces the Liberty and Justice, next generation red dot sights optimized for every day carry and law enforcement use on reciprocating pistol slides. Liberty is the standard window size variant with a 22mm wide window. Justice is the “big window” variant with a 27mm wide window. These optics represent a significant step up compared to last year’s Swampfox “Kingslayer” model and show that this new brand is on the attack in 2020.

 Reticle and battery life:

  • 3 MOA red dot 
  • Top Mounted CR1632 battery: no re-zero needed
  • Shake ‘N Wake motion sensing auto on/off
  • No timer based auto-off 
  • Ten brightness settings via flush push button
  • Real world battery life: one year

Swampfox Product Marketing Director Michael Branson:

“These are the same emitters that other companies claim 50,000 hours of battery life with, but nobody really carries around their optic on setting #3 all the time, so that’s not real world. No circle dot or green reticles, the 3 MOA red dot is the only emitter that gave us the battery life boost needed for every day carry. With Shake ‘N Wake helping avoid waste, you can carry either Liberty or Justice every day at a daylight bright setting, and never have to push a button if you don’t want to. It wakes up when it’s on your body and sleeps when you put it down. Change your batteries every Christmas just in case.”

Construction:

  • 7075-T6 aluminum
  • Hardcoat matte black finish
  • Rated to 1500 G force shock
  • IPX7 Waterproof
  • RMR footprint
  • Scratch-resistant, fully multicoated glass

“If you’re going to look police officers and serious concealed carry guys in the eye and tell them this scope is ready for that use case, you better make it tough and you better really test it. We figured out that the old side tray battery setup was a failure point during drop testing. Going to a blackened stainless steel top cover was much stronger and made the whole body more narrow, so Liberty and Justice function perfectly in ALS law enforcement holsters. Departments aren’t going to adopt your product if they have to go custom holster hunting. Liberty will be the first to have the stainless steel Ironsides Shield available for purchase separately. Ironsides surrounds the optic and diverts all impact forces around the optic and straight footprint. So if you rack your slide on a barricade, if you drop your pistol, if you have it on a shotgun and it falls out of the vehicle, those hits beat up on Ironsides while the optic inside remains safe. Even without Ironsides attached, we’ve never rated any optic at 1500 G of shock before, so the toughness level achieved there is groundbreaking for us.”

MSRP for Liberty is $249, with Justice at $259. Swampfox has an aggressive discount policy for law enforcement and military customers and a T&E program for departments who want to “try before they buy.” Both optics are available now at www.swampfoxoptics.com.
