Rebates, Free Gear and More Savings for Spring

posted on March 5, 2020

Savings are in the air, as we rapidly approach the first day of spring. Numerous companies are offering complimentary gear, rebates and other incentives for (forgive us) pulling the trigger on a new purchase now. Here's a quick roundup of some of the offers currently available: 

  • Purchase a new Mossberg MC1sc—Shooting Illustrated’s Handgun of the Year for 2020—between Nov. 15, 2019, and March 31 and you may qualify for a free matching DeSantis Slim-Tuk Holster for that new carry gun.   
  • Take home a new FN America Five-Seven or FN 509 Tactical before May 1 and you could receive a $75 rebate or free Streamlight TLR-7A Gun Light ($225 value), respectively.
  • Buy a Beretta 92X before April 1 and you could qualify for a $100 rebate. The promotion includes the Full Size, Centurion, and both the Compact versions—with and without accessory rail.
  • TNW Firearms is offering $50 back for enthusiasts who buy one of its standard Aero Survival Rifles or Tac Aero Survival Pistols between March 1 and May 31. The TNW Aero Survival product line is available in the most popular pistol cartridges and uses Glock magazines.
  • Hornady is offering free bullets to enthusiasts who purchase select reloading gear and Critical Defense ammunition for qualifying buyers of any of the company’s RFID-enabled RAPiD safes. Here’s a link to its "Get Loaded" and "Safe and Secure" 2020 promotions.
  • The “Buy More Save More” promotion from Crimson Trace ends March 29 and new owners of the company’s lasers, lights, sights and scopes can qualify for up to $200 back on their purchase price. The more you spend, the more you save—as the name indicates—but even if your budget allows you to only spend $58.95, you still get $10 back.
  • And Federal Premium hasn’t forgotten you need ammo to run your guns and gear. Buy four boxes of select varieties of its varmint or predator loads before May and you can qualify to get $5 per box. Both centerfires and rimfires are included in the Predator Payback promotion.

Don't miss out! If you've been planning a new addition or simply need to stock up, don't leave free money (or gear) on the table!

Why Lightweight Carbines Are a Game Changer

Technology and demand are driving a light-rifle trend that shows no signs of slowing down. Purpose-built, flyweight guns are a dream to carry and shoot, but the additional machining, exotic materials and manufacturing methods that can bring something like an AR rifle down to 4.5 pounds make it expensive.
