    What the deal is:

    You know what time it is. It’s Veteran’s Day sale time. Head on over to Combat Armory’s website and take a peek at their prices. See how everything is already damn near half off? This is another 25% off on top of that. So for example, if you wanted their match grade Glock 19 barrel which normally retails for $219.99, it’s on sale for $99.99, and with this code, you get it for $74.99.

    Kel-Tek RDB Bullpup 5.56 with 17″ Barrel – $729.99

    What the deal is:

    I’m going to be completely honest. I do not get, or like, bullpup rifles. Of course I’m also left-handed which means that it’s a pain in the ass switching the ejection port so I’m not blasting myself in the face with gas and shells. This gun eliminates that pain, by having a unique straight-down ejection system. The shells fall out of the buttstock. A pretty neat gun, with a unique twist.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    So what’s the street price on these? Most of the places I’m seeing it listed seem to be averaging about $775 to $850 (although one poor deluded storefront had it at $1200). So not a smoking hot deal, but a decent discount and definitely the lowest price it’s currently listed at. This price is the Cash/Check/TxtACheck price. TxtACheck will create a virtual check for you, so you don’t actually need to mail one in.

    Complete Polymer80 Build Kits – $469.99

    What the deal is:

    This is about as much “not technically a gun” as you can get. This is literally everything you need to build your own handgun. After maybe two to three hours with a file and a Dremel, you have your very own faux Glock. They come in Glock 17, 19, and CL, and you can get plenty of upgrades from RMR cuts, threaded barrels, compensators, to optics.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    If you want to build your own Glock, this is as cheap as it gets. There are other build kits out there, but they tend to go for about $50-100 more, and they can get even more expensive from there. Buy it because you can get it shipped to your door, spend two hours fondling it, and come out with a perfectly functional handgun.

    Athlon Ares BTR 4.5-27×50 APLR3 FFP IR MIl – $549.99

    What the deal is:

    This is a good scope. It is not a great scope, it is not a bad scope, it is a good scope. It holds a zero, it doesn’t cause too much eye strain, and the reticle is perfectly fine. If it was at its normal list price, it would be competing with the Vortex Viper PST Gen II 5-25×50, and from what I’ve seen, most people prefer the Vortex. However, it is not being sold for a normal list price which is:

    Why it’s a good deal:

    Normally this optic sells for about $850. However, it is listed on Amazon for Prime members at $549.99. If you are not a prime member, then it can be found at MKMachining for the same price.
