Featured Deals of the Week – 9/27/19


    What is up my fellow firearms enthusiasts. It’s Benjamin F coming at you pre-written with another Featured Deals of the Week. As always please lock your seatbacks in the upright position before breaking open your wallets.

    Ruger Mk IV Hunter 22lr Stainless Steel & Wood – $559.99

    What the deal is:

    Right yeah. Why would you want to pay upwards of $500 for a 22lr pistol? I get it. It’s a good question. The answer is that a 22 can be a nice gun too, and this is a nice gun. It’s a target pistol, comes with a fluted barrel, and has a pre-drilled and tapped receiver for a Weaver or Picatinny rail. If you’re looking to seriously upgrade your plinking, or maybe do some work in a rimfire pistol competition, this gun is for you.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    Retail on a Ruger Mk IV Hunter in Stainless Steel and Wood usually runs about $650, and I’ve seen them listed for more than $700. So at just $559, this is a steal.

    IWI 941FS-9 Steel 9mm with 2 magazines – $472.81

    What the deal is:

    Isn’t this pistol just gorgeous? I mean the aesthetics of it are incredible. Then, of course, the internals are basically a CZ-75 short recoil clone, so it handles well too. Add in a frame-mounted safety (which for some people is very important), and two 16-round magazines? This is a pretty sweet setup on sale here. This is the model with the 3.8″ barrel, not the 4.4″ one.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    The Jericho 941 steel frame 9mms tend to go for closer to $550, or higher. So at just $472, you’re getting a pretty solid discount on your space cowboy gun.

    Ruger BX-25×2 10/22 50 round tandem magazine – $37.99

    What the deal is:

    Honestly, before today when I was poking around for deals, I had never even heard of this kind of 10/22 magazine. It took me a little while to figure out exactly what was going on here. This is, essentially, two BX-25 magazines secured together, so after you finish one, you flip it over, and can start shooting from the second. It is, in my opinion, really freaking cool, and if I wasn’t currently living in a ban state I’d have snapped one up.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    Generally speaking, these tend to go for between $40 and $50. Since they’re on sale at GunMag Warehouse for just under $40, you’re getting some decent savings on what is, in effect, a novelty. You are also paying less than what you would for two separate BX-25 magazines, so all in all, not bad.

    CCI Speer Sub-Sonic 22lr 40-grain hp 100 rounds – $5.99

    What the deal is:

    Anyone planning on doing a little pest control or going varmint hunting, this deal is for you. Some CCI 22lr subsonic rounds with hollow-point bullets. Perfect for taking small game, or suppressed plinking. This ammo is clean-burning (or as clean-burning as 22lr gets), and will go bang every time you pull the trigger.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    Anyone who buys 22lr knows that $1 means a lot when it’s a price difference over 100 rounds. This is about $1 below any other pricing on this round I’ve been able to find, giving you a CPR of $0.055. Not bad at all, if I do say so myself.
