Well, there’s snow on the ground (or will be, for some of us), they’re playing holiday music in the mall, and everyone is searching for gifts. Yep, it’s safe to say that it’s officially the Christmas season.
This time of year is perfect for buying a gift for that special someone, for friends, for neighbors, for family, and…well, let’s face it…for yourself. And nobody knows all of this better than the generous folks in the firearms industry.
Gun contests have been popping up right and left in hopes to attract new and returning customers to purchase a new firearm for the holidays. And, seeing as these often feature outstanding firearms and higher odds of winning than the lottery, they’re doing a pretty good job of getting people to buy in.
It isn’t just Christmas cheer that motivates these gun shops to give away their expensive firearms, either. After all, gun sales were on fire leading up to the presidential election. However, gun sales have been dropping like none other ever since Trump became our president.
Thus, gun companies, being full of cash from earlier in the year and full of hope for new customers, are looking to create new converts by tempting people with the incredible guns they’re giving away.
There are lots of gun contests to choose from. And, if you play to win, you’ll want to participate in the ones where you have the best odds. That’s why you’ll want to pay attention to the following list.
4 Of The Coolest Guns Being Given Away Today
Here’s four gun contests featuring the best guns and the best odds, as shown by Gun Buzz:
The Rhino .357
You’ve probably seen the Rhino .357 contest. This contest has been going on for sometime and over 17 of these guns have been give away for Free.
The reason you’d want a Rhino? It’s chambered in .357 which is a hefty round for self-defense.
And it shoots like a dream. The muzzle is at the bottom of the cylinder which reduces recoil tremendously for a great shooting experience.
The Saint Ar-15
What’s better than an AR-15? A FREE AR-15.
The Saint is an all-purpose AR-15 from Springfield Armory.
Here’s what they have to say about it.
‘ Like those who are unapologetic about protecting their legacy, the SAINT™ AR15 makes no compromises when it comes to features, engineering, and operator experience. As the ultimate refinement of the AR15 form, the SAINT™ combines innovations like the Accu-Tite receiver mating system with the relentless execution of core features.
The SAINT’s flat top design is optics ready and includes a flip-up rear aperture sight and fixed A2-style front. The 16-inch Chrome Moly Vanadium barrel features a 1:8 twist rate to handle a wide range of bullet types. The operation of the M16 bolt carrier group is managed by a mid-length gas system paired with a heavy tungsten buffer, resulting in an exceptionally smooth action. A good shot starts with the trigger, so that’s why the SAINT™ AR15 features micro-polished and Nickel Boron treated components. While it offers the right pull weight for defensive use, you won’t feel it.
Unlike most defensive rifles in its price range, the SAINT™ AR15 includes top notch furniture designed to improve both shooting experience and operator performance. An all new, exclusive Bravo Company PKMT KeyMod handguard packs heat shields and flexible attachment points into a slim and easy to handle form factor. The Bravo Company buttstock is rattle-free and complemented by a Bravo pistol grip designed to improve defensive performance.”
The one contest that a lot of people are really happy about is the Sig 1911 giveaway.
Ever since Sig became the go-to supplier for the U.S. Army’s service pistol they’ve been given a real shot in the arm. And to endear themselves to the U.S. gun market even more they’re helping arm tons of Americans with 1911s.
And there’s one in particular that’s Free right now.
The 1911 Army is a 7+1 compact .45ACP featuring an Army green annodized frame and black rubber grips with finger grooves. Weighing in at just under 30 ounces unloaded, each 1911 Army is machined to exacting tolerances and fitted to insure reliability and performance. The Army frame is machined from a lightweight alloy SIG SAUER uses only premium internal parts such as a match grade barrel, hammer/sear set and skeletonized trigger.
Kimber America Micro 9
This lovely .380 ACP comes straight from the venerable firearm manufacturer, Kimber.
A limited edition custom colorway, the Kimber America micro doesn’t just look great, it shoots like a champion.
As Kimber states… In many respects a miniature 1911, among the most important Micro design advantages is a single action trigger with the kind of short, smooth pull that ensures accuracy and builds confidence.
The thumb safety, slide release and magazine release are pure 1911 as well. Standard features include a lowered and flared ejection port for flawless ejection and a beveled magazine well for fast, positive loading. Sights are steel – not plastic – and mounted in machined dovetails for additional integrity. Each Micro includes a flush-fitting 6-round magazine and an extended 7-round magazine is available as an accessory.
