Wise enthusiasts shop early for the holidays, long before that special gift is out of stock, shipping schedules back up past New Years and porch thieves gather. Shooting Illustrated hasn’t seen any Santa tags or gaggles of mischievous elves from manufacturers, but the offers and incentives are awfully festive. For non-procrastinators it’s an opportunity to take a few names off your holiday shopping list early—perhaps your own.
One of the industry’s foremost leads the way. Purchase any new Springfield Armory Saint rifle or Hellion bullpup between Nov. 1 and Jan. 31, 2024, and you could qualify to receive a Gear Up package worth up to $500. This special promotion includes a free red-dot optic, an extra magazine, a single-point sling and $200 Alexo Readywear voucher.
For the optic, a Vortex Crossfire redeems with the purchase of a Saint Victor, Saint Edge or Hellion rifle. The sight features a 2-MOA dot that is quick to acquire in close quarters, while remaining fine enough to promote pinpoint accuracy at distance. A 3.5-MOA dot Hex Dragonfly comes with the purchase of original Saint model rifles.
In addition to the optic, all Gear Up packages include a versatile Grey Ghost Gear single-point QD sling, additional magazine and a Springfield Armory Webstore-redeemable $200 voucher for Alexo Athletica x Springfield Armory premium readywear. New owners must complete the online redemption form by Feb. 29, 2024, and some restrictions apply. Visit the promotion’s webpage for full details.
CZ USA is offering rebates of $75 and $50 on select semi-auto and pump-action shotguns purchased by Dec. 31. New over-under and side-by-side owners may also qualify for $100 back on their purchase. Full details are here.
Buy a new Daniel Defense DD3, DDM4 or DD5 from Daniel Defense or an authorized dealer by Nov. 18 and there could be a new Vortex SPARC Solar red-dot sight in your future—for free. Visit DanielDefense.com to learn how to claim the $400 value.
Trijicon is offering its first-ever rebate program for select RMR and MRO reflex sights. It runs through Dec. 31 and offers a $100 consumer rebate for RMR Automatic LED, RMR Adjustable LED, and Dual Defense Kits. In addition, Trijicon is offering a $50 consumer rebate on the Trijicon MRO and MRO Patrol model reflex sights. The MRO HD is not included in the incentive program. Full promotion details are online.
You can also save 10 percent on purchases of select models of Armasight’s thermal Contractor sights right now. New owners can receive the savings as a 10-percent rebate or gift card, but you must take home that new night-vision optic before Dec. 31. Five models qualify for the savings.
Undoubtedly there are more promotions, incentives, savings and holiday pumpkin spice lattes in our future. In the meantime, for those of us who don’t procrastinate and prefer squash-free coffee, there’s a whole lot of deals already going around.
