Swampfox Optics Raider 1X20 Micro Prism Sight


SKU: Swampfox_Raider Categories: , ,


Introducing the Raider, a versatile 1×20 micro prism with expansive eye relief for fast and clear sight acquisition. Utilizing etched reticle technology, choose between either the Bullet Rise Compensation (BRC) or a single 6 MOA dot. It features a T-2 footprint for exceptional versatility between mounting platforms. This micro prism distinguishes itself with a die-cast zinc alloy body, providing a robust housing capable of withstanding impacts without loss of function. Available in red or green illumination, the Raider’s etched reticle appears black when the illumination is off. Its Shake N’ Wake auto on/off feature conserves battery life and is perfect for home defense.

The Raider’s primary focus is close quarters applications, featuring its Bullet Rise Compensation Reticle, which is ideal for short-barrel 5.56/.223 platforms. Many optics optimized for close-range engagements fail at attempting to maintain long-range capabilities. However, the central point of the BRC reticle upholds a 50 to 200-yard zero point, keeping the BRC primarily focused on close range engagements while allowing longer distance shots.

According to the CDC, approximately one in three people experience some form of astigmatism, which significantly impacts their ability to use red dots. The Raider serves as a great alternative to standard red dots because the reticle is not projected onto the glass and into the user’s eye, but rather illuminated within the optic, preventing a starburst effect. The Raider’s reticle will also not be washed out by a weapon light, unlike red dots. When the light is activated, the reticle remains a black silhouette instead of disappearing.

Height-over-bore issues can complicate short-range engagements when zeroed for mid to long range distances. The Raider’s Bullet Rise Compensation reticle features dedicated holds specifically designed for 5, 10, and 15 yards on AR-15 and similar platforms, while still providing a hold for the 50/200 yard zero point.

Now available for pre-order, we offer a single 6 MOA dot reticle in either red or green. This single dot reticle functions similarly to a conventional red dot, but with added benefits of being housed within a prism and featuring an etched reticle.

The Raider is available in either red or green illumination, featuring 10 illumination settings. Settings 1 and 2 are NVG-compatible, settings 3 to 8 cater to low-light and indoor applications, and settings 9 to 10 provide daylight brightness.

Shake N’ Wake comes standard with the Raider, helping you conserve battery life and maintain an advantage over your opponent. After 225 seconds of inactivity, the illuminator will shut off, leaving the etched reticle to appear black. If the optic detects any movement, it will power back on to the previous illumination setting.

Unlike other 1x prisms, the Raider doesn’t compromise on sight picture, boasting an impressive 70.7-foot field of view (FOV) at 100 yards. Combined with its 15mm exit pupil, the Raider allows for quick target acquisition, rivaling red dots in speed. Utilizing the rear diopter, you can operate the Raider with both eyes open, maintaining a high level of situational awareness.

Equipped with the industry-standard T-2 footprint, the Raider offers versatile mounting options, enhanced by the durability of titanium mounting screws on each included riser. The package features a low-profile 1.1″ mount and a medium 1.6″ mount, allowing for immediate customization. Its T-2 compatibility ensures the Raider can be mounted on any suitable mount, riser, or offset.

The Raider features a unique lens cover design for user-friendly operation. These innovative covers are connected to the battery compartment for easy stowing. To utilize the optic, you merely remove the front cap and attach it to the battery cap. Then, unfasten the rear cover from the quick-focus diopter and snap it onto the front cap. If you choose not to use the lens covers, you can easily remove the battery cap and slide off the mounting ring.

Your Swampfox product comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty, providing robust protection against manufacturing and material defects. We offer a 10-year coverage on the LED, with lifetime coverage on all other aspects. If the product encounters any performance-compromising damage, we are committed to repairing or replacing it. This warranty does not extend to intentional or cosmetic damage, or to optics that are lost or stolen.
