Guns cost money. A lot of money. That’s pretty plain and simple, and you don’t need somebody to be telling you that.
Good thing that isn’t what we’ll be telling you today. Instead, we have ways to get the same amount of guns you need, but costing way less. This will save you a fortune.
Yup, you read that correctly. We’ve got a foolproof budget plan right here for you. What is it? Nothing more than a list of guns that are super cheap, but still high quality. No need to worry about smart spending if you have access to this list.
There’s no long string of steps to follow, or a morning mantra to repeat to yourself every day. Instead, when you want to go buy yourself a new gun, just pick something from the list. It’s all right here in front of you, a collection of quality affordable guns. Although sadly, none of them are free.
Here’s a list of quality guns with very low prices, from the folks at The Survivalist Blog.
Mossberg 702 Plinkster
Like all rimfire guns, clean it well after shooting or every 200-300 rounds. Do so and you wont have problems with it, 4lbs of lightweight accuracy and more importantly, accurate, reliable and less than $150.
Ruger SR22 handgun
Reliable, accurate, and with all rimfire again, clean it well after shooting. Ruger SR22s can be had for under $300 and many times used for under $200
FegPa63, P64, and Makarov 9×18
Virtually any Eastern European 9×18 handgun, the round works well, it will work in self defense. Most can be had for right at $250, well worth every penny.
Glock 19 or 17
Denigrate the 9×19 with a solid defensive round all you want, sure BALL ammunition sucks, it sucks in everything! Modern self defense ammunition makes the 9×19 round better than the .45 and virtually equal to the ,40 or .357 and does it at half the cost.
Pricing is $300 – $500 depending on used or not, and remember, unlike other firearms, used only means broken in on a Glock.
Springfields XD series in 9×19
I do not like this gun, however, I cannot in all good conscience not include it, it works, it is accurate, and absolutely reliable. There is nothing to dislike other than personal taste for myself. Thats all, and thats it. $400-$700
Canik 55 TP9SF
A new arrival to the scene, but at a price point of $350 brand new, you cannot miss this as a possibility. If you are prepping on a budget and new to firearms, THIS is the way to go.
There are dozens of approaches, builders and several calibers. My suggestion, stick with what is most popular currently, 5.56 is what you want it chambered in, or .223 wylde.
So here are the brand names I suggest, Palmetto State Armory, Delton, DiamondBack and Olympic Arms are all solid AR15 builders, they may need minor work as they are not as highly polished as a $1200 plus rifle. However, they are absolutely reliable and more importantly, the bottom side of all of these rifles can be found for between $500 and $700 apiece.
AK47 platforms or AKMs
Here is where things get fun. See the simple reality is I do not have as much trigger time behind one as others do. However, I do absolutely believe in the necessity of having multiple calibers available especially in popular calibers.
Red Army standard, Serbian NPaP, and Definitive Arms DAKM. Pricing ranges from $500- $1000 for the above listed names.
Enfields .303, Mauser 8mm K98, and Swiss K31 in 7.5×55
Iron sights at distance there are only these three rifles I can honestly suggest, that meet the criteria as stated. Each of these can be had for between $300 and $600 and should be looked at closely prior to purchase for signs of wear.
Remington 700, Mossberg 100 ATR, Weatherby Vanguard
The Remington 700, Mossberg 100 ATR, and Weatherby Vanguard are all wonderful long-distance rifles. The Vanguard was a sub MOA model, (not normal) and shot under an inch off of a bipod at 100 yards. The Remington and Mossberg both shot very well also. pricing ranges from $300 – $600 for these rifles.
Now you know several cheap but quality guns, and can buy on budget! Make sure to add a couple of these to your next shopping list.
