Cheap Guns For Sale Online and Where to Buy Them
1. Falkor Defense Caitlyn PSR
- Price: $2,499
- Caliber: .223 Rem/5.56 NATO
Now the Falkor Defense Caitlyn PSR Wyle AR-15 is not a cheap gun in the traditional sense. But you are looking at a firearm with a major discount. The RRP of this rifle is $3,499, so this is a full $1000 off the sticker price.
You get a matched receiver set machined from billet aluminum and the handguard is a stress-bearing member thanks to a clever DRACOS Straitjacket Barrel System. That’s just the start of the trick tech that makes this one of the sweetest shooting AR-15 rifles and arguably the best AR-15 for sale right now, certainly in this price range.
There’s a Mission First Battlelink Tactical stock, Geissele SSAE match-grade trigger, Dracos Ace muzzle brake and a whole host of other goodies. It’s a class act of a rifle that you could take serious target shooting or hunting.
It was our top choice in the best designer AR-15 rifles for sale in 2019 and we’ve got no hesitation in naming it one of our bargain guns of the month, even though it isn’t a cheap gun.
2. Kel-Tec KSG
- Price: $625.99
- Caliber: 12 Gauge
The Kel-Tec KSG is one of those love-hate shotguns that I have to confess I kinda love. The failure to feed issues have been over reported and there is an easy fix with a polish of the feed ramp. Besides, if this gun is good enough for John Wick then it’s good enough for me…
Essentially you’re looking at a 12-round pump action shotgun, one of the best high-capacity shotguns out there in fact. And if you fill the two separate tubes with mini-shells then you can basically light up the world and enjoy 12-gauge brutality with AR-style capacity. For home defense, that’s an awesome recipe.
They’re normally well North of $700 and tend to be even more than that. At Sportsman’s Guide, you can get it for $649.99 and they’ll give you a $25 gift card. Regular buyers should consider joining up with Sportsman’s Guide discount club too. Do that and the price of the Kel-Tec drops to $619.99.
If you want one, this is the best price for the Kel-Tec KSG that we have seen for a long time.
3. Mossberg 715T Tactical .22LR
- Price: $229.99
- Caliber: .22LR
If you’re looking for a .22LR starter rifle, or just a cheap AR-style 22 Rifle for shits and giggles, then you will struggle to beat this price for the Mossberg 715 Tactical 22 Rifle.
This rifle is an evolution of the legendary Mossberg 702 Plinkster autoloader platform. The Mossberg 715T gets a flat-top upper receiver with a full length Picatinny rail for red dots and scopes. The quad rail forend is a little much for a 22 rifle, but then if you’re training for the real deal AR-15 then it’s handy to have the hang space we guess.
You get a free-floating barrel that is pretty accurate and a great basic 22 rifle in an AR layout for less than $230.
4. Adams Arms Small Frame .308 Patrol Rifle
- Price: $1,099.92
- Caliber: .308 Win
A decent .308 Win Mag rifle can set you back serious money and this one should be more than $1,700.
Rainier Arms is clearly trying to offload this brilliant little Adams Arms Patrol at a discount price. It’s a 16 inch barrel, small frame, relatively lightweight .308 Win Mag hunting rifle that you can also enjoy at the range. As an alternative to an AR-15, it makes a great home defense firearm too, if your ears are already blown out…
Adams Arms is one of those niche brands with a small and yet devoted following. Generally when people buy one long rifle online, they go back for more. It’s a similar story with Red Rock River and Stag Arms: repeat business is their main business.
So this rifle is going to be a step above the standard fare you can get in .308 Winchester for just the wrong side of $1,000. It’s a nice AR set-up with a low-profile handguard and an 8.15lb weight that is a solid start for a bigger caliber hunting rifle in an AR platform.
5. Taurus G2C
- Price: $174.99 (With Rebate)
- Caliber: 9mm
OK it’s not a massive saving, but the price of the subcompact 9mm Taurus G2C does seem to fluctuate between $200-250, depending on the dealer.
This discount Taurus G2C is $199.99 and then there’s a rebate to take it to a genuine $174.99. Good luck beating that price. This is a legitimately good deal then and it might convince you to pull the proverbial trigger on this personal defense star. Cheap handguns used to mean a Hi-Point. Taurus has changed the game in the 9mm pistols market.
It’s the proper double stack version, rather than the single stack Taurus G2S, and this is the gun that has been making waves and is widely considered the best concealed carry for sale in 2019 if you are aiming cheap.
At less than $200, it’s hard to argue and we think it’s a great option for small gun safes around the house to make sure you have total coverage.
If you need to go much cheaper then you might want to start looking at airguns for sale. Basically there are cheap handguns, and cheap handguns. This is a great gun, that happens to be cheap.
6. FN 15 SRP Tactical Carbine
- Price: $999.99
- Caliber: 5.56 NATO
Euro Optic won’t have many of these fine and now finally discontinued FN rifles at this price, but the
The FB-15 Tactical II is now on the shelves, and it’s better, but is it almost $500 better? Probably not…
It’s a workhorse of a direct impingement rifle and it’s great for home defense, range shooting and whatever else you like to do with your AR-15. A full length Picatinny rail gives you the space for a red dot or other options and it really is a solid all-rounder that law enforcement officers around the world rely on.
This is a high-quality AR-15 for starter rifle money and the FN in various forms has made our best of lists of the best AR-15 for sale regularly. So this is a good price and the gun reviews love this 5.56 rifle. It’s a solid saving, and that might be just enough to swing it for you. If so, you’re welcome…
7. Taurus 617 Revolver
- Price: $359.99
- Caliber: .357 Magnum/ .38 Special
A six shot .357 Magnum revolver is a pretty devastating weapon, so imagine what you could do with seven shots? Well now you can have them, at the right price, with the Taurus 617.
We’re getting a bit Spinal Tap here, we know. But the Taurus is a cool revolver that comes with a better reputation than some of the Brazilian company’s semi-automatic offerings. We love the matte stainless steel finish too.
Cheap handguns rarely fill us with joy, but this one actually isn’t that cheap. It’s just a big discount on the standard $450 asking price and it’s a solid lump of a handgun for sale that should serve you well. It’s basic, it will put a hole in most things and it shouldn’t go wrong. It isn’t a Smith & Wesson, but then it’s a fair chunk of change cheaper.
8. Springfield Armory Saint Edge
- Price: $1099.99
- Caliber: 5.56 NATO
This isn’t the entry-level AR-15 that people are having issues with. It’s the range topper that was introduced at more than $1,500 less than a year ago.
Springfield Armory is reshuffling its line-up with the Victory and clearly needs to get rid of these Saint Edge rifles at a discount price. That’s good news for you and me, for now. They’re clearing the shelves for a Gen 2 made with cheaper parts for a lower RRP of $1299.99 that is now advertised on the site.
I don’t see how Springfield Armory can make a top of the line rifle for $1299.99 and that makes me think they’re going to dumb down the Saint Edge and then possibly lower the price of the entry-level Saint so the Edge, Saint and Victor don’t trip over each other.
And if that’s what’s happening, then grab yourself one of the proper first gen rifles while you still can. This is an absolute steal of a weapon and possibly the best AR-15 in the price range.
It was originally pitched at the POF Renegade Plus and Daniel Defense DDM4. It was seriously in that ballpark and that may have been the issue.
At the high price point, I could understand that. At this new, dirt cheap price point, though, we love it.
The gun is covered in Bravo Company Manufacturing AR-15 upgrade parts & accessories and it absolutely is a high quality rifle that scores well in the online gun reviews, all of em.
The match-grade trigger assembly is coated with Melonite, a proprietary Accu-Tite system keeps tension on the rifle and stops the upper and lower receivers working loose and the whole rifle weighs just over 6lb.
It comes with a flared Magwell, a premium M16 BCG and the receivers are machined from billet. The flip-up low profile rear sights are Springfield Armory’s own and this is a seriously kitted out rifle.
There is a lot to love about this rifle for sale.
The Springfield Armory Saint Edge clearly hasn’t worked at the price it was pitched at, but that means you can get an absolute bargain right now.
We have searched for them lately and stocks are depleted, but these are live links to gun sales or searches. So try em until you get lucky.
Where to buy a
Springfield Armory Saint Edge rifle
It’s kind of messed up, but the best place to buy a Springfield Armory Saint Edge online is Palmetto State Armory. They have had the most consistent supply in the last few weeks.
PSA doesn’t just make low-price weapons, it sells really good ones at low prices. Check here for the Springfield Armory rifle for $1099.99.
Honestly we’re drawing a blank elsewhere right now, stocks are out in most places and PSA is selling the Edge for just $150 more than the entry-level Saint. This is opposite world, and if you can find one, get it.
9. FN FNS-9L
- Price: $379.99
- Caliber: 9mm
You will probably have seen the last of the FN FNS compact handguns going super cheap, but the best deals are the 40S&W compact handguns. This is the long slide, long barrel version of the FNS and it is a real high-quality handgun.
The FNS 9mm Long Slide could be a gun that you keep forever. It’s not one of those guns you bought because it was cheap. It’s one of those guns that becomes the yardstick by which all others are measured.
It’s just the best of the striker-fired genre because it used to come with a premium price tag and had to justify it. At this price, it can stake a claim for being the best gun, the best 9mm handgun anyway, when it comes to value for money.
The trigger guard is undercut, the grip angle is great and the stippling is strong. The beavertail is nice and protective, you can spec a thumb safety mounted on the frame and there’s a stainless steel chassis running through that black finish polymer frame.
You can even change that if your gun starts to feel its age for a mid-life refresh.
The chamber and feed-ramp have been lovingly polished and that cold hammer forged barrel has been test fired on FN’s own rig to make sure your gun shoots straight and true. This is not normal cheap guns territory, at all.
Basically look at everything you would fix in a Glock 17 9mm and the FNS already is that gun. It’s a 5 inch barrel and it’s more elegantly proportioned than most full-size striker-fired pistols. The FN 509 is slowly taking over, but this might actually be the better firearm.
The stainless steel slide has just the right amount of serrations, together with a black nitride coating. The vertical trigger feels right out of the box and it’s a relatively heavy pull of between 7-8lb, which is something you might end up doing to a Glock as part of your long list of modifications.
There’s a rail underneath for a laser or even a dryfire training device that will save you money in ammo and improve your shooting technique.
FN Parts & Accessories aren’t as easy to source as, say, Glock spares. But this isn’t a custom gun either, there are plenty of these 9mm pistols out there in the world and you’ll find gun accessories no problem. Basically cheap handguns don’t look like this, so get one while you can.
10. Walther PPS M2 9mm
- Price: $269.99
- Caliber: 9mm
The Walther PPS M2 is a great little concealed carry handgun and some people think a Walther trigger is the best factory OEM unit in the striker-fired class.
It loses out to the likes of the Sig Sauer P365 Nitron and Springfield Armory XDMOd 2 in th overall stakes, but only by a whisker. And at this price, you might actually find you prefer the Walther PPS. It’s basically half the price of the Sig Sauer.
It’s an absolute bargain of a gun that goes into competition with the likes of the Taurus G2C and Smith & Wesson M&P Shield. It can handle that fight pretty well.
This is a compact personal defense handgun with an overall length of just 6.3 inches and a 3.18 inch barrel with polygonal rifling. You only get six rounds in the mag, or 7 if you opted for the extended magazine, but that’s enough for such a small, elegant, cheap, single stack CCW.
11. PSA AR-15 NATO Classic Rifle
- Price: $549.99
- Caliber: 5.56 NATO
Palmetto State Armory rifles aren’t for everybody, but if you want a straight and true starter rifle then this one really is one of the best AR-15s in this price bracket.
The handle up top and the classic profile are a tribute to the old-school M16 rifles that went to war in the hands of American soldiers. It’s pretty much a tribute act, rather than any kind of faithful recreation, but it’s also a fun rifle.
If you want to start buying AR-15 parts & accessories and tinkering with a simple base rifle, then this works a treat. You would be surprised how fast basic parts add up and there’s a lot to be said for starting with a PSA rifle and building out from there.
Now Palmetto State Armory rifles are good for the money, but inevitably you give up some of the fineries. You might find a slight color mismatch or a rough finish here and there, and the furniture is as basic black polymer as black polymer gets. But at this price? We don’t think it’s a deal-breaker.
The classic AR-15 costs just $549.99 right now, a serious discount as this rifle was originally marked up as $879.99.
That retail price sounds optimistic, to be honest, as this really does look like a highly stylised Palmetto State Armory Freedom Carbine rifle for sale that features in our list of the best $500 AR-15 rifles on sale in 2019..
But the sale price is just right. Snag a bargain now!
12. Ruger LCP 380
- Price: $199.99
- Caliber: 380 ACP
Yes this is the first generation Ruger LCP 380 ACP concealed carry. But the second gen costs a lot more. This gun was $169.99, now it’s bouncing around and you should always check the prices for a new Mk2, or something better, before you spend this much money on one of these 380 Auto handguns.
We don’t need to tell you too much else about this black polymer frame gun. It’s a concealed carry legend and arguably the best pocket pistol or a sock gun if you like a back up.
It’s a single stack handgun with small bullets, low recoil and not much else. It doesn’t do anything fancy, but it doesn’t do anything wrong. At this price, it’s a total steal.
If you just got your carry permit and you can basically afford a Hi-Point, get this instead. Thank us later.
13. Springfield Armory XD Service
- Price: $297.99
- Caliber: 9mm/45 ACP
This is another first gen gun, but it’s basically the same as the Springfield Armory XD Mod 2 minus the fiber optic night sights and the ridiculous Grip Zone stippling. You might even like the look of the Mk1 Springfield Armory XD Service a little more.
We found 45 ACP and 9mm versions of the compact handgun with the 4 inch barrel, and now we have found a 3 inch barrel Springfield Armory XD Service Sub-Compact pistol. This isn’t just a cheap gun, it’s a great cheap gun.
They are all there for $299.99 and that is kinda crazy, especially for the 45 ACP. The compact Springfield Armory XD is an absolute tack driver of a polymer handgun. Law Enforcement Officers love them, in part due to the grip and trigger safeties that combine to prevent accidental discharges.
It’s a great gun in any form and the double stack magazines mean they pack in more bullets than pretty much any other gun with a similar footprint.
They consistently feature in our best concealed carry and best handgun lists in Mod 2 form, and the first gen gun is pretty much as good in every case. They’re last season’s firearm, but they’re an absolute bargain.
14. Christensen Arms CA-15 Recon
- Price: $1,8499.99
- Price: 5.56 NATO
Now I’m a sucker for a good firearms sale, and the Christensen Arms is down from more than $3,200.
Now $1,800 still puts this AR-15 into very serious territory and you could have a POF Renegade Plus or a Daniel Defense DDM4 Pro for the same cash. It isn’t a cheap gun by any stretch of the imagination.
But the Christensen Arms is a designer rifle with an insane spec and it’s hard to deny there’s value here if you’re looking for these touches.
They include a carbon-fiber barrel, receivers machined from billet, a carbon-fiber handguard and more sexy high-tech measures. It weighs less than 6lb naked and it’s an awesome patrol rifle.
At $3,200 you might baulk. But at $1,7950, this discount rifle is an absolute bargain.
