Featured Deals – Columbus Day Edition


    Hello my half a dozen faithful readers. I know you were all just utterly ambivalent when you didn’t see a DOTW post last Friday. But have no fear! It’s a special edition for Columbus Day and the first day of Sukkot for any other Jewish gun owners out there. Chag sameach (happy holidays)!

    M&P Shields on sale at Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore and $50 Fall Rebate

    What the deal is:

    As the title would imply, S&W is offering a $50 rebate on all eligible Shield handguns purchased between 10/14/19 and 12/08/19. The list of all eligible SKUs can be found here. Smoky Mountain Guns and Ammo is also having a sale on Shields, that stacks with the rebate. The Shield 2.0 9mm with safety is $250 after rebate. The 2.0 9mm without a safety will be $290 post-rebate. There’s also plenty of Shield 1.0s, Shields with Crimson Trace lasers, and EZ Shields.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    Aside from the $50 rebate, which is not exclusive but is done through Smith and Wesson, the reason I linked to SMGA is that they’re offering a discount on top of this rebate. Overall, plenty of savings, and you can pick up a reliable and fun shooter for a very low price.

    Wolf A1 T91 AR-15 T91 gas piston Upper 16″

    What the deal is:

    I actually didn’t know this until I did a little digging on this deal, but Wolf doesn’t manufacture anything. They’re solely an import business. For example, Wolf Gold 5.56 is made in Taiwan. This too is made in Taiwan and includes a few authentic T91 parts such as the handguard and charging handle. If you’ve ever really wanted to get your hands on a bit of Taiwanese military goodness, this is your chance.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    Well, I don’t see anyone else selling T91 uppers. Other than that, the barrel is hammer-forged 4150 steel nitride treaded, it has a very standard 1:7 twist, and of course, it’s gas piston operated.

    What the deal is:

    What? September sale? I know right? Crazy. But as it turns out PSA’s optics sale is through the end of October. Some of these sales have been mentioned here before, so I won’t bore you with them again. However, there are also some damn good deals in here. Like, say, Magpul MBUS back-up sights and a Romeo5 for $160. I’d strongly recommend keeping an eye on this page. As we get closer to October 31st and the end of this sale, I’d be willing to bet some fantastic deals are going to appear here.

    What the deal is:

    It’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s 15% off everything at TekMat. So… what the hell is TekMat? TekMat makes a variety of products, but their signature item is a gun cleaning mat. They’re the solution to ruining towels or hating cheap cleaning mats while trying to clean your guns after a day at the range. They come in a wide variety of patterns, both practical with labeled drawings of your favorite firearms, and fun, with fireman crests, Gadsden flags, and my personal favorite the “Join or Die”.
