Walther Competition Rifles

Along with rimfire and centerfire handguns, Walther makes competition smallbore and air rifles. Look carefully below — this Walther LG400 Alutec air rifle is different than any gun you’ve ever shot — it has an ELECTRONIC trigger. The LG400’s sophisticated, battery-powered trigger offers a precise, super-light release that is more a “touch” than a “pull”. For top-level Olympic and World Cup competitors, the electronic trigger offers a competitive advantage.

Modern Walther Defensive and Sport Pistols

Walther Value 9mm — The Walther Creed at $249.99

Walther Creed  9mm carry pistol handgun bargain cdnn sale discount

While Walther makes premium pistols, such as the steel-frame Q5 shown above, Walther also makes good reliable pistols that cost much less than a Glock or Sig polymer pistol. The Walther Creed offers excellent ergonomics, good accuracy, and well-designed controls for just $249.99 at CDNN Sports. This gun, designed to be a value-leader, emulates Walther’s more expensive PPQ model (MSRP $649.00) at a much lower price. The Creed’s frame size and shape is the same as the PPQ, but the Creed lacks interchangeable backstraps. Slide and trigger are very similar.

About Walther
Walther ArmsCarl Walther and his son, Fritz, created the first blow-back semi-automatic pistol in 1908. Today, Walther’s innovative spirit continues with the PPK, PPQ, PPS, and Q5 Match Steel Frame series. Military, Police, and other government security groups worldwide utilize Walther firarms. Service and quality continue to be benchmarks of Walther success. For more information, visit www.WaltherArms.com.

Bargain Finder 162: AccurateShooter’s Deals of the Week

Accurateshooter Bargain Finder Deals of Week

At the request of our readers, we provide select “Deals of the Week”. Every Monday morning we offer our Best Bargain selections. Here are some of the best deals on firearms, hardware, reloading components, optics, and shooting accessories. Be aware that sale prices are subject to change, and once clearance inventory is sold, it’s gone for good. You snooze you lose.

1. CDNN — Winchester XPR Rifle $289.99 after $75 Rebate

Winchester XPR Rifle Rebate discount full hunting sale

We like the Winchester XPR as an affordable, entry-level hunting rifle. The three-lug bolt has a short throw, the mags seat easily and the rifle balances well. CDNN is offering the XPR for just $364.99. That’s a great price, but it gets even better. Winchester is offering a $75.00 factory rebate, lowering your net cost to just $289.99. This CDNN deal is available now for four popular chamberings: .243 Win, .308 Win, .270 Win, and .30-06 SPR. Winchester’s $75 Factory Rebate applies to any new Winchester XPR or Model 70 rifle purchased from August 1 through October 31, 2018. For more info, visit Winchester’s Trophy Season Rebate Page.

2. Midsouth — RCBS ChargeMaster Lite, $199.99

RCBS Chargemaster Lite

Tired of weighing your charges one by one to get the accuracy you’re looking for? Midsouth has the RCBS ChargeMaster Lite electronic scale/dispenser on sale for only $199.99. This is a great chance to pick up one of the best off-the-shelf powder scale/dispensers for an excellent price. You can pay up to $260.00 elsewhere. Supplies are limited so now’s the time to buy if you’ve had the ChargeMaster Lite on your shopping list.

3. Grizzly.com — Bald Eagle Rests $165.00 – $199.95

Bald Eagle Deal front rest cast iron slingshot

Bald Eagle (by Grizzly) offers one of the best value-priced front rests on the market. We’ve seen F-Class shooters win matches with the Bald Eagle Slingshot Windage Rest, which costs less than a fifth of a premium co-axial rest. For a new shooter, this is a very cost-effective solution. One Forum member purchased this Bald Eagle BE1006 rest for his grandson, deciding it was the best rest under $300.00. Both rests shown offer a cable (with large knob) for easy windage adjustment. The Slingshot model, in cast iron or aluminum, has an elongated front leg for added stability. This also brings the Windage knob within easy reach. The aluminum version (BE1005) is considerably lighter and $35 cheaper, so it may be preferred by rimfire and varmint shooters. Note: Front sandbag sold separately.

4. Al’s — Vortex Razor HD 20-60x85mm Spotting Scope, $854.99

Vortex Razor 20-60x85mm 20x60 Spotter Sale Discount Spotting Scope

Here’s a great deal on a high-quality spotting scope from a top optics maker. AL’s Sporting Goods has last year’s model Vortex Razor 20-60x85mm spotter for only $949.99, including eyepiece. But it gets better — use Code ALS10 for another 10% off, bringing the final price down to $854.99. This is a very good spotter for the money and as Vortex will tell you, “buy a Razor now and we’ll always replace it with a Razor in the future”.

5. Cabela’s — Garmin GPSMAP 64S $199.00 on Sale

Creedmoor sports trimmer case kit platform

Cabela’s has slashed its price on the popular Garmin GPSMAP 64S unit, on sale for $199.99. This is an excellent hand-held GPS for hunters and hikers, with long battery life, good reception, and a fairly large screen. This unit features a High-Sensitivity GPS, Glonass Receiver, and Barometric Altimeter (important for your ballistics). The Garmin GPSMAP 64S is also available at Amazon.com for $220.90 with free shipping.

6. Creedmoor Sports — Wilson Trimmer Kit, $159.95

Creedmoor sports trimmer case kit platform

Here’s a slick set-up for precision case trimming. Creedmoor’s complete L.E. Wilson stainless trimmer kit features micrometer-adjustable length stop (.001″ increments), improved deluxe SS handle, and a special Creedmoor platform. The platform/mounting board can store 9 different case holders and comes with a polymer tapping block for knocking cases out of the holder. The platform also has four rubber feet. This system is also power-adaptable. The L.E. Wilson Trimmer Platform Kit is marked down to $159.95 this week. We favor this kind of system for trimming match cases.

7. Stocky’s — LR Stocks with Aluminum Bedding Block, $179.99

Stocky's Stocks Composite V-block stock

Here’s a good deal on a versatile Stocky’s Long Range Stock with aluminum V-block bedding system. For just $179.99, order this for Rem/Rem Clone long actions or short actions, with either narrow or wide (varmint/tactical) barrel channel. This would be a good choice for a varmint rifle. This is also offered with handsome hydrographic or web-pattern baked-on textured finishes for $199.99.

8. Palmetto State Armory — 500 Rds CCI .22 LR, $16.99

CCI Blazer 40gr .22 LR 22LR rimfire ammo sale

Here is a crazy-good deal. Get 500 rounds of CCI 40gr .22 LR rimfire ammo for just $16.99. That works out to just 3.4 cents per round. But act soon. This deal on CCI Blazer rimfire ammo expires Monday October 29, 2018 at 11:59 pm EST. If you buy five or more 500-count boxes (that’s at least 2500 rounds), you can also get free shipping.

9. Amazon — Jialitte Scope Bubble Level (30mm + 1″), $11.99

Scope Optic bubble level 30mm 1

This nicely designed Jialitte Scope Bubble Level is fully CNC-machined to close tolerances for a good fit. It features a 30mm milled inside diameter, plus an inner insert ring so it will also fit 1″-diameter main tubes — that dual-diameter versatility is a nice feature. We also like the way the unit is nicely radiused, and has a low profile in the middle. User reviews have been very positive. You could easily pay $35.00 or more for a 30mm scope level. Purchasers have praised this product — almost all verified buyers have rated this five stars.

Budget Boomer — Ruger’s .300 WM Hawkeye Long Range Target

Ruger Hawkeye 300 Wm .300 Win Mag Magnum Long Range Target Rifle Brezny Review Ammo Test

Ruger has produced an interesting Big Magnum that combines a nice stock with a quality 5R barrel with muzzle brake. The new-for-2018 Ruger Hawkeye Long Range Target (LRT) rifle offers outstanding bang for the buck in a large magnum chambering. MSRP for the LRT is $1279.00 while best “street price” is now under $1000.00. Honestly you could easily pay twice that much and not get a .300 Win Mag that shoots significantly better.

Ruger Hawkeye 300 Wm .300 Win Mag Magnum Long Range Target Rifle Brezny Review Ammo Test

The Hawkeye LRT has some nice features, including:

– Barrel (26″) with 5R Rifling and Hybrid Muzzle Brake
– Target Stock with two-way Adjustable Comb and Adjustable LOP
– Flush-mounted Lower M-LOK® Rail for bipod or bag-rider
– Angled +20 MOA Picatinny Scope Rail
– AI-compatible Detachable Box Magazine
– 2-Stage Target Trigger adjusts to 2.4 pounds
– Mauser-style 3-position Safety

3/4-MOA Three-Shot Accuracy with Factory Ammo
Ammoland.com gunwriter L.P. Brezny recently field-tested the Ruger Hawkeye LRT with a variety of factory .300 Win Mag ammunition. Most of his three-shot groups were in the 3/4-MOA range: Norma ECO Strke 150gr, 0.652″; Federal Premium BT Edge 200gr, 0.834″; Winchester Power Core 150gr, 0.726″. Handloads with 155gr Sierra TMKs did even better: 0.496″ for three shots.

Ruger Hawkeye 300 Wm .300 Win Mag Magnum Long Range Target Rifle Brezny Review Ammo Test

Tester Brezny was impressed with this rifle, saying: “I predict that like the [Ruger Precision Rifle], the Ruger Hawkeye Long-Range Target rifle that has been enhanced as an advanced tactical design at less than one-third the cost of most better-grade long range rifles, is going to see a whole lot of sales as a professional as well as civilian use in the year or two ahead.”

Ruger Hawkeye 300 Wm .300 Win Mag Magnum Long Range Target Rifle Brezny Review Ammo TestSolid Value and Good Features
With a tempting $1000 “street price”, we think this Ruger offers a lot of performance for the price. Accuracy is very good for a factory rifle. We like the two-stage trigger. It’s nice to have a +20 MOA scope rail. The toe of the stock works well with a rear sand-bag and the front M-LOK rail can be used to attach a 3″-wide bag-rider. This makes the gun very suitable for bench target use.

Too Heavy for Hunters?
The .300 Win Mag chambering is excellent for big game, but we doubt the LRT will actually harvest many big beasts. The reason? At 11 pounds before optics, (figure 13 lbs. with scope, rings, and sling) we doubt many Hawkeye LRT owners will carry this gun in the field.

However, for guys looking to punch paper and ring steel at 1000-1700 yards, this is an interesting option. We expect the main market for this rifle will be shooters who want to experiment with long-range (1000 yards and beyond) target shooting, without breaking the bank.

The Hawkeye Long Range Target rifle features a Mauser-style 3-position safety, plus a large, Mauser-type bolt release on the left side of the action:
