What Are This Week's Deals:

Rounding up the right gun is linear-algebra tough right now. A surge of panic buyers are snapping up pistols, rifles, shotguns, slingshots and peashooters (not to mention ammo) fasters than they roll off the line. In a bid to aid our gun-buying audience, we’re rounding up a few weekly gun sales we believe hit the mark for quality, affordability and, above all, availability. In full disclosure, we’ll make a few bucks (it won't cost you extra) if you use our links. If you don’t, no hard feelings, we get it. Remember, nearly all these items are time and availability limited, so don’t wait … you'll regret it if you do.

TriStar Cobra Tactical

WD tristar-cobra-tactical

Known for performing well above their price points, TriStar’s shotguns are typically solid values. When it comes to extremely affordable home-defense pump-action shotguns, it’s difficult to beat the Cobra Tactical. The 18-inch barreled 12-gauge can handle 3-inch shells and has a respectable 5-round capacity. It’s a pump-action, in turn, reliable as the day is long and has some nice extras, such as a spring-loaded forearms for fast cycling, Picatinny rail on the forearm for accessories attachment and blade front sight. And right now, the Palmetto Armory has them at a price that can’t be beaten!

Black Aces Tactical 12-Gauge

WD Black Ace

A nifty system, all in all. Black Aces’ Tactical 12-Gauge is more than a typical pump-action, it’s a system. The 18.5-inch barreled gun is sold with both a shoulder stock and shockwave grip, allowing shooters an extremely versatile and nimble system. The shotgun is chambered to handle up to 3-inch shells, has a 5-round tubular magazine, front and rear sights and comes with three chokes and a hard case. The nickel plating is nice too, giving the gun a measure of corrosion resistance.

Charles Daly AR-12S

WD Charles-Daly

A pretty svelte and effective system, the AR-12S is also an affordable box-fed shotgun option. A gas-operated semi-automatic, the gun proves a relatively smooth and reliable shooter. AR-style accouterments—carry handle, adjustable buttstock, AR-style controls—make the gun a familiar option for anyone that’s handled the rifle. The 19.5-inch barreled AR-12S comes with a 5-round magazine, is chambered for 3-inch shells and compatible with Beretta/Benelli chokes.

Tristar Sporting Arms KRX Tactical

WD TriStar KRX

The KRX Tactical has been around a spell and has proven somewhat popular. Again, this is a gas-operated, box-fed semi-auto patterned after the AR-15. Thus, the gun is very familiar to many shooters, with its controls and ergonomics what you’d expect them to be. It has some solid upgrades on many of the guns in its class, including a chrome-lined chamber and barrel, full-length Picatinny rail on top and fully adjustable rear sight and fiber optic front.

Ammo Sales

Par for course, ammo is tight out there folks. But Lucky Gunner has two 12-gauge ammo deals available, both 00 buckshot.

Nobel Sport 2-3/4″ 00 Buckshot

WD Nobel

Fiocchi 2-3/4″ 00 Buckshot
