Swampfox is a newcomer in the sports optics market with its headquarters in Colorado, USA. The company was established in 2018. Through the name Swampfox, the company pays homage to Francis Marion, a military officer who fought in the American Revolutionary War, who went by the nickname Swamp Fox. The names of Swampfox's products are also inspired by American history. The company strives towards providing value for money, and for now, they have been most prosperous in the field of red dot sights. Their products are made in a factory in China, and the same can be said for this red dot sight.
Swampfox Liberty 1x22 is a compact and open reflex red dot sight that also sports a modern look. The device features plenty of angled cuts on the frame and even on the body, which adds to its unique appearance. Liberty most certainly stands outs of the crowd, which is achieved by its elegant design.
These red dot sights do not come with a low Picatinny mount, which suggests that they are intended for handgun users. Swampfox Liberty is excellent for competitions and open carry situations. If the user does not wish to mount this sight on a rifle with a Picatinny rail, Swampox has a suitable adapter in their offer.
Swampfox Liberty 1x22 has a robust feel to it, the frame around the lens is remarkably solid, and it also sports a body made of 7075-T6 aluminum alloy.

The sight operates at 1x magnification, which allows the user to easily use it with both eyes open. The glass is fully multicoated to provide a clear, bright image. Swampfox Liberty also features an anti-glare lens coating. Some blue tint can be observed at the upper part of the field of view, but the consumer should not be bothered by that during use.
Swampfox Liberty is only available in one version when it comes to illumination, and that is with a red, central dot of a 3 MOA size. The dot produces no star effect.
There are 10 levels of illumination available, and the user can control the intensity with two buttons on the side. The buttons are flush with the housing and produce crisp clicks. To power on the illumination, the "UP" button should be pressed. To turn it off, the "DOWN" button should be held for 3 seconds.
Liberty is equipped with the Shake 'n Wake function, meaning that it will turn off after four minutes of inactivity to preserve battery life. As soon as the device is moved, the illumination will be back on in an instant. As this function is fully unobtrusive to the user, it cannot be deactivated.
Swampfox Liberty 1x22 comes with a warranty period of 2 years.
