Swampfox Optics just officially dropped a new optic for subcompact pistols using the RMSc footprint, the Sentinel II (see our review here). It comes with either a green or red 3MOA dot, has a 50,000 hour battery life, and a body of 7075-T6 aluminum.
What makes the Sentinel II unique is that the optic window is actually slightly larger than the base giving you more viewing area than would otherwise be possible on an RMSc sized platform. It also has an integrated fixed rear sight (that’s located in front of the lens) for micro compacts that sacrifice the rear sight to allow for optics mounting. Swampfox is coming out with their own front sight to pair with it too, in case your factory front sight is too low.
The Swampfox Sentinel II has a more rugged build than the first generation Sentinel and there’s also an optional add-on Ironsides Shield for additional protection if you think you need it. MSRP is $269.00 which is pretty competitive for an optic with those features. Check out the details below.

Crafted for precision and built to stand guard, Sentinel II showcases a fusion of advanced features in a sleek, cohesive design. Designed for concealed carry, this micro pistol dot sight maintains the standardized RMSc footprint and its familiar slimline profile while maximizing visibility with a larger 20mm window. Its most unique feature is the patented removable rear sight guide installed in front of the window. This guide provides backup support for micro pistols that sacrifice their rear iron sights for dot sight compatibility. Sentinel II displays a 3 MOA dot in either red or green illumination and is equipped with Swampfox’s Shake N’ Wake auto on/off feature for grab-and-go readiness.
Sentinel II is a rugged micro dot sight designed for everyday carry. Combining manufacturing experience and consumer feedback, we’ve made great improvements to design an optimized compact optic solution. The RMSc footprint provides compatibility for most optics-ready slimline pistols while its recessed hood design and shielding lens coatings protect its larger viewing window. Sentinel II stands as the latest advancement in Swampfox micro red dots.
Despite its slim RMSc mounting footprint, Sentinel II maximizes visibility for quick target acquisition with a new 20mm objective window – an improvement over the 16mm lens of the first generation optic. Fully multi-coated to resist scratches, fog, and water, and protected from glare by rear hood serrations, experience improved clarity no matter the shooting conditions.
Sentinel II is uniquely equipped with patented removable rear sight guides from Night Fision. Installed forward of the optic window with titanium screws, the hardened steel and black nitrided precision guides not only act as an alignment tool but also as a distinct landmark for those familiar with traditional iron sights. For shooters desiring more, pair the guides with a matching height yellow jacket tritium front sight, coming soon for Glock, SIG Sauer, and Smith & Wesson M&P Shield subcompact handguns.
Featuring a crisp 3 MOA dot in either red or green and 10 manual illumination settings, Sentinel II stays at the ready longer with a bottom-mounted CR2023 battery and Shake N’ Wake auto on/off. Brightness settings 1 and 2 are night vision-compatible with settings 3 to 8 for low-light and indoor applications, leaving settings 9 and 10 ideal for daylight shooting.
Manufactured from tough 7075-T6 aluminum, Sentinel II offers improved durability over its previous generation. A new body design better protects the LED emitter from the elements and provides enhanced protection for its recessed lens against surface racking. Armed with robust design features and optional add-on Ironsides Shield, Sentinel II is capable of withstanding everyday use and abuse.
