Springfield Armory has already launched a pair of special deals for 2019—the M1A Gear Up Promotion and a Defender Series sales event. Both began Jan. 1.

Buyers who purchase any new Springfield Armory M1A rifle between January 1, 2019, and March 31, 2019, are eligible to receive two 20-round magazines and a fourth generation M1A scope mount. The package is valued at $265 and customers can receive these items completely free by redeeming within the M1A Gear Up promotion dates.

Consumers in restricted states are eligible to receive two, mil-spec 10-round magazines that are compliant with state laws. New owners can either mail the Gear Up Promotion form, with proof of purchase, or for faster service, can initiate the redemption process online at Utilizing the website minimizes turnaround time but is not mandatory. Estimated processing and delivery for the Gear Up promotion is between 8-12 weeks.

As an added option, customers can upgrade their M1A Gear Up package during the redemption process to include a select Vortex optic at a discounted price. Optics included in the promotion include the Vortex Diamondback 4-16x for $215 ($449 MSRP), Vortex Strike Eagle 1-8x for $215 ($499 MSRP) and the Vortex Crossfire for $105 ($220 MSRP).Full details are found at

Springfield Armory is also offering its first-ever Defenders Series sales event, featuring the original XD 4-inch Service Model and 3-inch Sub-Compact Model at a special price. The promotion is designed to encourage new shooters to invest in their first firearm and introduce value-driven customers to the Springfield Armory brand.

The promotion gives customers the opportunity to purchase an XD 4-inch Service Model or XD 3-inch Sub-Compact Model at a $339 MSRP. Customers who buy the XD as part of the Defender Series package will receive an invitation to join The Defenders, a community of enthusiasts who will receive Springfield Armory communication including exclusive offers, giveaways and discounts.

“We are thrilled to offer a special package to encourage first-time buyers into the market,” said Springfield Armory CEO Dennis Reese. “By offering our XD 4” Service Model, an excellent introductory firearm for new shooters, we hope to promote a passion for shooting.”
