    Sig p320 x-series with 500 rounds – $729.99-849.99 + Free S&H

    Image Provided by Sportsman’s Outdoor Superstore

    What the deal is:

    Sportsman’s Outdoor is offering a combo deal of not only discounted P320s, but throwing in 500 rounds of Winchester 9mm Luger with them. Your choice is between the carry sized P320 X-Carry, with a 17-round capacity, or the full-sized P320 X-Five with a 21-round capacity. The X-Carry comes with 3 magazines, the X-Five with four. The only real difference between the two is in size (and therefore concealability). The X-Carry is 1.3″ wide, 5.5″ high, and 7.4″ long. The X-Five is 1.6″ wide, 5.8″ high, and 8.5″ long. Whichever you prefer, it comes with 500 rounds of Winchester 115gr 9mm Luger FMJ.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    To start, both handguns are decently discounted, 15.4% off for both. The X-Carry was originally $132 more, and the X-Five was originally $155 more. However, with this deal, they also come with about $100 worth of 9mm ammunition. While it’s not carry ammunition, it’s 500 rounds of range-time. The deal also qualifies for free shipping to your local FFL.

    Lancer l5 ar-15 30 round magazines – $18.49

    What the deal is:

    GunMag Warehouse is selling Lancer L5 Magazines. These magazines have become something of a hot commodity recently. They’re aesthetically pleasing, come in a multitude of colors (as of writing, black, FDE, translucent smoke, translucent red, and translucent FDE are in stock), and are on-par with PMAGs for quality. They have hardened steel feed lips, an impact-resistant body, non-tilt follower, and the top of the magazine catch is steel as well. Overall these are really high-quality magazines, which combined with their visual appeal makes them sell out fast.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    While these magazines aren’t on discount, it’s a deal that they’re back in stock. In private sale, these have gone for $50 each, and people have paid that much for them. Fortunately, however, they’re back in stock for $18.49 plus a flat $4.99 S&H on up to 3 magazines.

    Heritage rough rider 22-Combo single-action – $158.43

    What the deal is:

    1800 Guns and Ammo is offering the Heritage Rough Rider chambered in 22 Combo. It’s a 6-shot single-action revolver. While it’s not as practical as most of the guns and ammo on these deal lists, it’s a fun little gun. I love cowboy action guns, so I might be a little biased. That said, it’s still a neat little plinker. The barrel is 4.75″ long with a 1:14 twist, and the cylinder will accept 22LR or 22WMR. It’s a great gun to train on, to teach new shooters with, or to give as a gift.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    1800 Guns and Ammo is selling it for $92.30 off their regular asking price, or just under 37% off. That’s not a bad deal, and 1800 Guns and Ammo has a price-match guarantee, so if you find it anywhere else for cheaper they will match that lower price.

    Surplus gong bundle – $137.97

    What the deal is:

    ShootSteel.com is offering a bundle of three surplus steel targets. The bundle includes one 1/2″ AR500 12″x20″, one 1/2″ AR500 8″, and one 1/2″ AR500 4″. All targets come with a full warranty and has been freshly shot blasted. It does have some minor blemishes as it’s come out of long-term storage, but if you’re about to start dropping lead on it that doesn’t really matter. These targets minimum safe range for handguns is 10 yards, and for magnum rifles is 200 yards. They are rated up to 300 and 338 magnum rifle rounds, and ShootSteel endorses using 7mm Magnum, 30-06, 300 Magnum, 338 Magnum, and 45-70 on them.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    You’re getting three good steel targets from a reputable supplier for $40 and 22% off their asking price, and their asking price isn’t a bad deal as-is. Most AR500 targets on the lower end of the price spectrum come in at 3/8″, and aren’t as good with full-power rifle rounds. Considering these are 1/2″, freshly shot blasted, and rated for magnum rifle rounds? It’s a good price. ShootSteel also has other surplus bundles with other shapes and sizes of targets for the interested.

    Stag ar-15 lower with magpul furniture (blem) – $189.99

    What the deal is:

    Stag Arms is offering its blemished lowers for sale. The lower has all Magpul furniture, a CTR stock, MOE Grip, and Enhanced Trigger Guard. The receiver is your standard Stag Arms lower, made from 7075 Aluminum. The trigger is a Mil-Spec Single Stage, and the safety selector is right-hand side. As mentioned, the lower is blemished. Stag describes the blemishes as “minor tool marks” or “flaws in finish” or having a “slight imperfection”.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    Stag is offering these blemished lowers for just under 40% off, saving you $120. A lower that is usually more than $300 for $190, if you don’t mind a blemish. If you’re building your dream AR, and you want everything to be just so, this isn’t the deal for you. If however, you don’t mind some minor aesthetic blemishes, you can put that $120 towards a better upper or maybe a nice optic.
