Anybody pick up a good deal on Black Friday?

Post by gun toting monkeyboy » Mon Dec 01, 2014 6:37 pm

I snagged 2 complete AR uppers from Diamondback Tactical (one of the companies Taurus bought up) for $207 a pop, shipping included. Remember 2 years ago when you couldn't get anything for 5 times that price? I went with the .300 Blackout simply because I don't have any of those yet. There were some other good deals out there, but I blew my toy fund on these. What did you guys pick up?

Nothing quite as good locally as last year. Found some good ammo locally. $9.99 a box for blazer 9mm, $15.99 a box for .45acp.

I picked up a Burris AR-332 3X Prism Sight on sale for $239. After an additional $100 mail in rebate, it puts the cost at $139 shipped.

Not a great deal but used the code: J2Y for 10% off some stuff from Brownells...better than a kick in the head. And a DD 10.3" 5.56mm barrel for $20 off at Midway. Also picked up some miscellaneous stuff from PSA for their sales prices but it was pretty much the same as their regular sales.

They had a 15% off sale for all in-stock firearms at the BX but nothing I couldn't live without so I passed.

Picked up at stripped lower at a LGS for $79 out the door, 3 boxes of 20 green tip 5.56 ammo for $9.99, 200 .22LR for $7.99, and 200 .22LR subsonics for $8.99, also a really nice cleaning kit that looks like it could clean an 12' barrel with all the extensions it has, really nice kit over all.

Then I spent a bunch at REI clearance, new Mountain Hardware soft shell jacket, nice rei brand pants in earth tones, and a MSR whisper light repair kit.

Then I decided I hadn't spent enough money yet so I bought 8 of the cr123 rechargeable batteries with a charger for under $20 before tax and shipping.

I should say this wasn't black friday but small business Saturday and cyber Monday, because the hell with going out and fighting mobs of people to save $10 on something.

Yep, avoided brick and mortar until later Friday afternoon, then it was just the bookstore and bulk retailer, and that was only because my parents were in town and wanted to stock up before heading back to the sticks. Did get on teh interwebs and order a couple more AR and 10/22 mags from PSA, and American UTG adjustable buttstocks from CTD. Not necessarily major sales, but decent prices on stuff I want to keep in inventory anyway.

An 16" 300 Blackout barrel(pistol length, cuz i wanna shoot da subs with a can someday) made by AAC w/ a gas block for $129. I wasn't planning on getting it(I'm slow building the upper), but that was too crazy a deal not to pick up.

Got a stripped upper from Primary Arms a few days earlier for $39.

I picked up a 13" Troy Alpha free float tube from Primary Arms for $120. I cut down my front sight and blued it instead of buying a low pro gas block. It was shockingly easy to install.
