I’ll do my best to put this quick list of guns that I find on my regular searches for the cheapest guns online. These are almost certainly limited to one, or a few models that are in the back of the stockroom at one of our favorite gunbrokers.
We only work with the best online gun stores and we do the legwork. We find the best deals, the most interesting guns and the best prices online.
It’s going to be a totally mixed bag, so make sure you check right to the end, as there might be a gem for you.
Best Gun Deals of the Week
- Price: $299.99
- Type: Pump Action Shotgun
This simple pump-action shotgun is a bargain. At this price, you could have several dotted round the house and a shotgun can be a devastating home defense weapon. Everyone should have one of these or a Mossberg Shockwave, too, and this price is just ridiculous. So if you want a shotgun, you’re going to have to try pretty hard to beat this.
- Price: $561.00
- Type: Semi Automatic Compact Handgun
In our recent piece on the best Glock alternatives, Walther was nibbling at the heels of the HKVP9 and some people claimed it’s actually the best handgun in the world.
The high retail price of $599 meant it struggled against equally competent firearms that are just cheaper. But it’s amazing the psychological impact of this $38 price drop. It’s not the biggest sale, but it brings the Walther down to Glock money. If you want one, now is the time…
3. SMC DP-12 Double-Barrel Shotgun
- Price: $1316.43
This isn’t exactly on sale, but it is a pretty rare find on the mainstream sites.
This is the infamous double-barrel shotgun, the DP-12. It’s a 14-round, aircraft-grade aluminum gun with two 18.75″ barrels.
Just watch it in action…
4. CZ Scorpion Evo 3
- Price: $739.00
The 9mm Scorpion is a perennial favorite and this is the best price we can find for this awesome little range gun, home defense specialist, tacticool monster or whatever you want it to be.
You can keep this simple polymer semi-auto clean and basic, or attach a brace, lights and lazers. That bit is up to you, but this gun is a brilliantly accurate range gun and if you add a tactical brace then it’s a truly versatile weapon.
We love these guns and if you don’t own one, you really should.
- Price: $1,699
- Type: AR-15 Chambered in .223 Wylde
This is a sexy AR that you just hope works as good as she looks.
The Rigid Rail handguard is basically skeletonized and and this really is a minimalist gun, right through to the lightweight stock. There’s a Picatinny rail up top and nothing is wasted. Every part of this gun is functional, or it is just gone. The smoke Cerrakote finish looks the business too.
The .223 Wylde obviously allows you to use 5.56 NATO or .223 Remington, but you can just treat it like a pretty, lightweight and pretty hardcore AR-15.
It weighs 7.5lb, despite looking like an absolute flyweight. You do get a forged lower receiver, Battle Arms Development upgrades more or less everywhere and $300 off right now. It’s a designer gun, for sure, but I think it could be a real shooter as well.
5. Ruger SR1911 Compact Commander 45 ACP
- Price: $707.99
This isn’t a full-size 1911. Instead you get a 4.25 inch barrel and a relatively compact weapon that gives you 7+1 rounds of 45 ACP.
It’s a heavy hitter, the low-glare finish is stunning and this simple, understated 1911 is actually our favorite.
At this price, more than $200 off RRP, we think it’s a bargain.
6. ZEV Technologies G17 Dragonfly
- Price: $1484 ($300 OFF)
This is the superb ZEV Technologies Glock 17 conversion. It’s a 4th Gen Glock under there, as you can see from the handle, but this is a full ZEV conversion for money that’s not 100% crazy.
It’s a black-on-black design, which is surprisingly understated for the custom Glock world, and it’s a match-grade weapon that you could easily take it into a variety of competitions. Or you could just enjoy your new number one range gun. The triggers are famous, that slide is a massive improvement over the Glock original and the whole gun is just perfectly balanced.
You should own a Glock taken to the nth degree at least once, and this way won’t break the bank completely. Just a little…
7. Mossberg Patriot .308
- Price: $274.99
This classic .308 from Mossberg comes with a 22 inch barrel and it should be $396, but you get more than $120 off if you buy right now and that is a bargain. I have been pushing Creedmoor hard of late, but some people like a .308, this is an honest gun and it’s an ideal back-up or even a starter kit.
8. Springfield Armory XDMOD.2 40 S&W 4 Inch
- Price: $474.31
Again this isn’t a massive price drop, but it’s enough to turn an absolute stellar handgun into a steal.
Some people reckon Springfield Armory has the best trigger set on the open market and the XDMOD.2 is pretty much a modern masterpiece. It isn’t much more exciting to look at than the Glock 19, but it’s enough. The grip safety is a great concept and you might find you group shots with this gun better than almost any other.
It’s a tack driver at the range and this 40S&W gives it real stopping power. Despite the compact size you get 12+1 rounds and that’s a lot of this bigger caliber ammo. This isn’t the real sub compact, it’s a direct rival for the Glock 19, and it’s a really good one.
9. Springfield Armory 1911 A1 Loaded Target 45 ACP
This certainly isn’t cheap, but look at the workmanship on this classic 1911 with a five-inch barrel. It’s a 7+1 and spits out violent 45 ACP, so if anything is going to give you stopping power then it’s this thing.
Lightweight titanium firing pins, a delta skeletonized hammer, drilled out trigger and fully adjustable sights are among the highlights. But really this gun is jewelry and you could have it on display, it’s that elegant. It’s a lot of 1911 for the money, so get yours now!
9. Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0 Compact
- Price: $459.99
OK, it’s another Glock 19 rival, but the Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0 Compact is a great EDC and this is a great price.
You’ll never regret owning one of these. It’s the 4-inch barrel version, so it’s the natural rival to the Sig Sauer P320 Compact, as well as the Glock 19. That’s a tough crowd, but the Smith & Wesson more than holds its own and some people wouldn’t swap theirs for the world.
You get 15+1 rounds of 9mm Luger and about $40 off.
10. Sig Sauer P320 Compact
- Price: $499.99
In my humble opinion, this is the most complete handgun on the market right now and it’s way below Glock money right now. While the smaller P365 Nitron has problems, the bigger P320 is an absolute gem. It’s accurate, it’s comfortable in the hand and it just works. It’s a 17+1 round weapon in this spec and that price is an absolute bargain. Get one. Get two…
