Blade is the mission-driven 1x prism scope dedicated for home defense and law enforcement. Blade’s revolutionary Bullet Rise Compensating reticle compensates for optic height over bore at just 5, 10, and 15 yards when mounted on an AR-15. Available with red or green illumination, Blade’s etched reticle appears black when illumination is off. Shake 'N Wake motion-sensing auto on/off saves battery life and is perfect for home defense. Blade is an excellent choice for shooters with astigmatism who have issues with dot sights. When you need speed and precision at in-your-face distances, trust the Blade.
Some Swampfox optics are intended to be flexible “do-it all” scopes. This isn’t one of them. Every aspect of Blade 1x is optimized for the home defense and law enforcement patrol rifle application. Blade 1x has only one goal: help you master real-world close quarters shooting.
BULLET RISE COMPENSATION
Gravity always pushes bullets down, of course. But at very close ranges your scope’s mechanical offset, or “height over bore” comes into play. If your optic is aimed straight at the target at “in the living room” distance, your barrel must be aimed at a significant upwards angle to make a precise hit matching point of aim.
Close quarters shooters have known for years that “you need to aim a little high up close”. Blade 1x is the first optic to account for this and offer dedicated holds for 5, 10, and 15 yards distance when used on an AR-15 or similar platform.
A BUMP IN THE NIGHT
Blade 1x is available in red or green reticle illumination variants. The first two brightness settings, N1 and N2, are night vision compatible. Settings 9 and 10 are daylight bright.
Blade features Shake 'N Wake motion-sensing illumination technology. After 225 seconds without motion, reticle illumination shuts off to preserve battery life, leaving the etched reticle to remain in black. When the optic is moved even slightly, illumination instantly resumes at the previous setting.
Select your favorite brightness level and put your home defense gun away. If there’s a “bump in the night”, you don’t need to worry about adjusting your optic– as soon as you grab it, Shake 'N Wake reticle illumination will resume, ready for whatever comes.
THE ETCHED RETICLE ADVANTAGE
We love red dots– especially the ones we make! But red dots aren’t ideal for everyone’s eyes. Astigmatism or other medical eye issues can make them a poor choice. Blade 1x features a chemically etched reticle and fast focus adjustable ocular lens for a great sight picture even for shooters with imperfect vision.
Blade’s reticle won’t “wash out” like red dots can when used together with a bright weapon light at close range. If your lumens overwhelm the illumination, your reticle remains as black silhouette instead of disappearing at the worst possible moment.
A COMPLETE SOLUTION
Packed with premium glass, tough construction, and backed by our 50,000 Round Guarantee, Blade 1x comes with everything you need to get completely set up, from high-quality flip caps to the Honeycomb Anti-Reflective Device. There are no accessories to buy separately– it’s all included in the box from the start.
CLOSE QUARTERS OPTIC, LONG DISTANCE QUALITY GLASS
Blade 1x is optimized for close quarters shooting, but it features the same excellent glass found in our long-range precision optics. Containing rare earth metals, Blade’s glass is fully multi-coated for maximum light transmission, anti-reflection, anti-fog, anti-scratch, and hydrophobic performance.
Unlike red dots, 1x prism scopes have constraints on eye relief and eye box– the amount of space behind the scope where your eye can acquire a valid sight picture. To rival the red dot’s legendary target acquisition speed, Blade 1x features an incredibly forgiving eye relief and tremendous 13.5mm exit pupil.
After setting the fast focus diopter for your eye, shoot Blade 1x like you would shoot a red dot. Both eyes open, focus on the target, and GO!
A SERIOUS SCOPE FOR A SERIOUS JOB
Building an optic for the law enforcement and home defense applications means our customers are potentially trusting us with their lives when they buy the Blade 1x. We take this responsibility extremely seriously.
Blade was designed to be as rugged as possible. It is manufactured with precision and care. Like all Swampfox products, it is backed up by our 50,000 Round Guarantee: if your Blade 1x ever stops performing as it should, we will repair or replace it. But we know the best warranty of all is the one you never need.
