Product Description

Maximum magnification is 6x higher than the minimum, giving you incredible flexibility. Kentucky Long takes everything we love about the Patriot series and adds red reticle illumination and locking, re-settable target turrets. The first focal plane Sharpshooter MOA or Sharpshooter MRAD reticles pair with 0.25 MOA or 0.1 MRAD-per-click adjustments. Includes includes high quality flip caps, 3" sun shade, and both low- and high-profile throw fins.


5-30x56 MOA back in stock late June.

Step Your Game Up

You demand great glass, a smart FFP reticle, and adjustable parallax, but that’s not enough. You want reticle illumination for low light situations and locking, zero-resettable target turrets. You want a ton of zoom– top magnification 6 times greater than the starting point. You’ll get all that and even more when you step up to Kentucky Long.


Eleven brightness settings illuminate the Kentucky Long’s Sharpshooter reticles in red. You can make precision shots before the sun comes up or after it goes down, in a variety of low light shooting situations. Reticle illumination is powered by a single CR2032 3v battery included in the box.


Kentucky Long’s intelligent Sharpshooter Grid reticle is available in MOA or MIL/MRAD variants, matched up with 0.25 MOA-per-click or 0.1 MRAD-per-click tactical turrets. You can use Sharpshooter on any caliber rifle for ranging confirmation and elevation / windage holdovers, even at extreme target distances.


We include both low-profile and high-profile magnification fins with your Kentucky Long. Choose the fin height you like most and install it anywhere on the magnification ring that’s best for your setup. No shopping around the aftermarket for a throw lever. No concerns about what will fit or how much it will cost. We’ve got you covered.

Superior Optical Performance

Kentucky Long’s 6x zoom ratio stretches the magnification range in both directions. At minimum magnification you get a wider field of view, and maximum magnification is really MAXIMUM.


Kentucky Long provides excellent edge-to-edge optical clarity throughout the entire magnification range. The fast focus ocular keeps the reticle sharp, while side-focus parallax adjustment helps you see every detail in the target area.


You can mount Kentucky Long on heavy recoiling rifles without worrying about getting smacked in the eye, thanks to its forgiving eye relief. Field of view is fantastic thanks to the 6x zoom ratio and state of the art optical engineering.


The whole point of a high magnification scope is to see the target more clearly. But if you are fighting a tiny eye box and can’t get a clear view through the scope, you aren’t seeing the target clearly at all. Kentucky Long’s exit pupil and eye box characteristics are maximized at all magnifications, making it faster and easier to use than competitor scopes set to the same magnification.


Like the Patriot, Kentucky Long’s glass contains rare earth minerals. Each lens is carefully crafted to boost optical resolution and brightness. All lenses are fully multi-coated for anti-reflection and maximum light transmission. The coatings also give the Kentucky Long glass its anti-fog, anti-scratch, and hydrophobic properties.


Everyone’s eyes are different. Kentucky Long’s fast focus adjustable ocular makes it easy to keep the reticle sharp at all times, regardless of magnification level or target distance.


Kentucky Long’s side focus parallax adjustment knob eliminates accuracy-robbing parallax problems, getting your target sharp and in focus quickly.

Tactical Turrets



No tools are needed to lock and unlock Kentucky Long’s turrets. Simply pull them away from the scope body to make adjustments, then push them towards the scope body again to prevent unwanted rotation. Once they pop down into place, your settings are locked down.


After sighting in Kentucky Long it’s easy to adjust the turret markings to indicate your “zero”. Shooters who prefer to dial for windage and elevation can quickly return to zero at any time.


Kentucky Long’s tactical turrets feature precise, consistent movement you can feel in every click. Sharpshooter MOA reticles are paired with 0.25 MOA-per-click adjustments. Sharpshooter MIL reticles are paired with 0.1 MIL-per-click adjustments.


Sharpshooter MOA is an intelligent reticle that is easy to navigate yet always precise. Easily measure the size of objects viewed through the Kentucky Long down to 0.5 MOA to find your distance to target, then shift your point of aim and use the 36 MOA holdover grid to compensate for range and wind.


Sharpshooter MRAD is an intelligent reticle that is easy to navigate yet always precise. Easily measure the size of objects viewed through the Kentucky Long down to 0.1 MRAD to find your distance to target, then shift your point of aim and use the 10 MRAD holdover grid to compensate for range and wind.


Can an optic this affordable actually last on your rifle? Hell yeah it can, and it will. Kentucky Long is shock resistant to 1,100 Gs of shock, waterproof, sand proof, and pretty much gorilla proof. If you do break it somehow, no worries– we’ve got your back with the 50,000 Round Guarantee.

Sharpshooter MOA
Sharpshooter MRAD

Sharpshooter MOA is a ranging and holdover reticle using the Minute of Angle mathematical system. With the help of a ballistic calculator or a few basic formulas, you can use Sharpshooter to estimate the range to target, then hit it without adjusting your turrets using the holdover aiming cues.


Other reticles give you one or two hash mark dimensions to use for range estimation. If the target size doesn’t match up, you must make your best guess based off those limited options. Sharpshooter MOA incorporates subtensions from 4 MOA all the way down to 0.5 MOA. Less guessing; more confidence.


With range to target established, you can use Sharpshooter’s holdover grid to shift your point of aim, compensating for both bullet drop and wind conditions without ever having to physically adjust the scope’s 0.25 MOA-per-click target turrets. The holdover grid extends 36 MOA down with precise wind hold dots extending to a maximum of 24 MOA to each side of center.


Due to the optic’s First Focal Plane construction, the measurements or subtensions in Sharpshooter MOA are correct and true at all magnifications. You never have to worry about being at the “wrong” magnification to range estimate or use the holdover grid.


Sharpshooter MOA is compatible with any caliber. As just one example, using a 100 yard zero, Sharpshooter MOA will provide holdovers for a standard .308 Winchester rifle to hit accurately past 900 yards in 20 mph winds.


In order to range targets or objects with Sharpshooter MOA, use the MOA ranging formula:
Target Size (inches) x 95.5” / Image Size in MOA = Range In Yards

In order to obtain an accurate range estimation, you need to know the size of the target in inches. Using either vertical or horizontal hash marks, measure the target dimensions in MOA as you view it through the scope. Multiply the target’s actual size in inches x 95.5”, then divide that result by your MOA target dimension observation to get the range to target in yards.

Assuming this combatant is 6 feet [72 inches) tall, and his body length comprises 15 MOA in your reticle, how far away is he? 72 x 95.5” / 15 MOA = 460 Yards


Example #2: Assume that you have ranged a target 400 yards away and your ballistic calculator or bullet trajectory chart indicates that the bullet will drop about 6 MOA at 400 yards. If you want to “dial for dope” you can turn the elevation turret up to 6 MOA and fire using the center of the crosshair. However, it is faster to leave the scope zeroed, abandon using the center aiming point, and count 6 MOA down on the crosshair’s hash marks, using the numbers on the right of the dot grid as a quick reference. Looking through the scope, you will appear to be aiming high of the target. Gravity will push down on the bullet as it flies the 400 yards to hit the target’s center of mass.

    Kentucky long

    I ordered the scope on Tuesday and by Friday afternoon it was in my mailbox. That was the first of many things about this transaction that was pleasing. Opening the box to find the flip up lens caps, sunshade and even the battery already included was nice also. Mounted it on Saturday and took it to the range on Sunday. Fired first shot from about 8 power and then cranked it over to 30 and could see exactly where the round went. Used the turrets to make adjustments and bam it was spot on with the second shot. The turrets offer nice feel and sound while adjusting. You could easily adjust without taking eyes off target if needed. The sight picture is so good it's hard to believe I paid as little as I did for this scope. I have friends that have paid twice to three times as much and not had scopes this nice. The lighted reticle was really nice to have in the bright sunlight. The one and only complaint I have is there was not a SwampFox sticker to slap on my truck. Lol

    The Kentucky Long Rifle is a fantastic scope and you wont find a better value. With edge to edge clarity the glass is fantastic. The turrets have an audible and positive click when adjusting. The push/pull locking system is great. The edged illuminated reticle is clear and easy to read.

    Pre ordered this scope when it was first listed and waited a month to get it. It was well worth the wait. I have it mounted on my 6.0 mm creedmore rifle and I am shooting clay pigeons out to 500 yds. There is nothing bad to say about this scope. It performs as well as my vortex scopes and virtually the same warranty. I now own 4 of the swampfox products and will continue to buy more. For the quality and price you wont be disappointed.
