Swampfox Holiday Gift Guide 2023

By Joe Kriz


The holidays are just around the corner which means time is running out to get gifts for all of the gun owners on your list (or yourself, we don’t judge). We asked the team for recommendations of companies they love and gear they use and compiled the gift guide below. No product categories are duplicated, so there’s bound to be something for everyone.

If you happen to get something off our list, show our friends some love and tell them Swampfox sent you. Happy holidays from Swampfox Optics!

Holiday Gift Guide

Flatline Fiber Co. Rifle Slings

Made by hand right here in the U.S., Flatline Fiber Co. Rifle Slings are the perfect gift for any recreational, hunting, or tactical rifle shooter. Available with and without padding, the minimalist slings are constructed from durable 1” Nylon webbing with Ladderloc buckles for quick adjustments. Available in nearly a dozen colors and patterns, slings come with opens ends for desired attachments or can be purchased with QD swivel mounts for plug and play use.

MSRP: $50.00-64.00

Drew Meyer Defense CHOPSTOP MOD 2

Every rifleman has a preferred handstop; some like full-size vert grips, others prefer angled. For those somewhere in between, the CHOPSTOP MOD 2 from Drew Meyer Defense offers an ergonomic middle ground inspired by popular modifications to the BCM Gunfighter Grips. Designed with an 82-degree forward angle, all-side texturing, and a small concave thumb cutout, the MOD 2 mounts to any M-LOK rail and features integrated cable management.

MSRP: $34.95

MSRP: $34.95

Cloud Defensive REIN Micro

Bigger isn’t always better and the Cloud Defensive REIN Micro is proof. Measuring 1.29” smaller and 1.5 oz. lighter than the standard REIN weapon light, the Micro maximizes performance with 1,000 lumen output, 95,000 candela peak beam intensity, and a 40-minute run time. When mounted to any defensive rifle, the REIN Micro – available in black and FDE – offers more light on-target for better situational awareness and improved survivability.

MSRP: $399.99

Amend2 Magazine Packs

You can never have enough magazines – just ask @fromtheguncounter. Luckily, firearm accessory manufacturer, Amend2 Magazines, also understands this and offers magazine packs for popular pistols and rifles. Where legal, pick up a 5-pack of their best-selling 34-round 9mm Glock Stick Mags or a 7-pack of Mod-3 AR-15 Magazines for 5.56/2.23/300BLK rifles. We run Amend2 mags in many of our guns and trust them for both their reliability and durability.

MSRP: $89.95-111.93


When you need a better grip on your gun, GOON TAPE Raid Tape is our go-to for improved handles. Made from cotton and synthetic fibers, Raid Tape can be installed in minutes on pistol and rifle grips, magazines, and knife handles for moisture-wicking ergonomics, and can even be used to secure cables to your firearm. Often sold in rolls of black and ODG, RAID TAPE has endless uses, which makes it the perfect stocking stuffer for any shooter this holiday season.

MSRP: $7.99

Gunbutter Triple Package

We can’t believe it’s not (Gun)butter! But in all seriousness, Gunbutter has been keeping guns –including ours – running for 20 years. Proven to stop jams and better protect firearms from extreme conditions, their Triple Package of Gunbutter lubricant, Trigger Butter locking lug grease, and pen oiler is a non-toxic, non-corrosive, and low oder gun cleaning and performance solution. Each product can also be purchased separately to spread the buttery love.

MSRP: $53.95

Spyderco Carry Knives

Guns and knives go together like Christmas and the movie Die Hard. Based just North of us in Golden, Colorado, Spyderco produces some of our favorite everyday carry knives. From the ultralight Para 3 Lightweight and easy-open Delica 4 Emerson to the flagship Native 5 and micro Chicago, Spyderco has a knife style, size, and colorway for everyone. If hunting, fishing or survival is more your style, they also have blades suitable for game, fish, and the outdoors.

MSRP: $87.00-200.00

Savior Mini Loose Sac Ammo Carriers

If the shooter on your list is like us, they probably have and enjoy shooting guns in different calibers. But when you have multiple guns and multiple calibers, organization is critical to getting the most out of your range time. That’s where Mini Loose Sac Ammo Carriers from Savior Equipment come in handy, offering a four-pack of labeled soft bags with just the right capacity for a few hours on the range. Plus, they come in a variety of colors and camo patterns.

MSRP: $24.99-25.99

VIKTOS Operatus Fleece Jacket

While many range goers will hibernate indoors during the winter, the VIKTOS Operatus Fleece Jacket will keep any gun owner shooting even when temperatures drop. Reimaging the field liner into standalone outerwear, the fleece jacket features FiteLite insulation, rib-knit waist and cuffs, a drawstring hood, and Gunvent sidearm access for a quick draw from concealment on and off the range. Tactical, but casual, get the Operatus Fleece Jacket in Ranger or Greyman.

MSRP: $150.00

Swampfox Optics

Of course, this wouldn’t be a complete gift guide without a shameless plug of our own optics. New Sentinel II, Liberty II, and Justice II are perfect fits atop handguns of any size, while the multi-reticle Liberator II adds personalized precision to any rifle. For those with astigmatism, the Raider 1x Micro Prism offers a clear-etched reticle, while the Warhorse 1-6x LPVO is a winning combination of speed and precision. No matter the optic, give the gift of freedom this holiday with Swampfox.

MSRP: $249.00-639.00
