With 24 pages of deals and plenty of giveaways at store locations on Black Friday, Cabela’s is this season’s one stop shop for hunters. However, with some deals lasting only 5 hours, and only the first 600 visitors in line having the chance to win either a Browing Hunter bolt action rifle, or a Bradley Original Smoker, this stop will have to be among your very first. Here, we will take a look at the just leaked Cabela’s Black Friday Ad, cover some of the best deals, and answer some of the biggest questions about Cabela’s for this Christmas shopping season.
Cabela’s Best Black Friday Deals
This year, while other items such as clothing and outdoor cooking equipment do have steep discounts, Cabela’s has put most of their deals on guns for hunting and self defense, as well as optics and ammo to make sure these can be used as effectively as possible. As such, we’ll categorize the deals into Hunting Rifle, Bow and Shotgun deals, Pistol deals, Ammo and Accessory Deals, and other items with particularly good deals being listed thereafter.
Best Cabela’s Rifle and Shotgun Deals
- DPMS Oracle AR-15 for $500 (a $100 savings). While certainly already a budget AR-15 option, the DPMS Oracle is widely considered a great choice for a budget or first time semi automatic rifle platform and is now offered at a rock bottom price. Including a 16 inch barrel, a six position adjustable stock, and chambered in .223 Remington, this range gun is as American as it is a great deal. For those wanting to use sights beside the standard irons, the Burris AR 332 deal listed below in accessories may be a great option.
- Ruger American Bolt Action Rifle with Vortex Crossfire II Scope for $479.99 (a $120 savings). With a crisp trigger that can be adjusted for a 3 pound pull, a lightweight stock, and a pre-bore sighted 3-9×40 scope, this is a great gift for both novice and experienced hunters alike. Do keep in mind that depending on your state, there may be caliber restrictions if used for hunting. As such, it is my personal recommendation to seek the .30-06 and .308 Winchester variants, as both combine adequate power and typically inexpensive ammunition.
- For those looking for a deal on an elegant shotgun, Cabela’s offers the CZ-USA Teal Over & Under for $300 less than normal price at $549.99. This classic design is great for both bird hunting and clay shooting, featuring a 28 inch barrel and can be chambered for either 12Ga or 20Ga 3 inch shells.
- Lastly, for those who prefer crossbows to rifles, Cabela’s is offering the Carbon Express SLS package at $369.99, saving you $230. Offering to shoot bolts up to 355fps, this Highlander camouflaged beauty could take most of your typical hunting prey. Do keep in mind however, that not all states allow for crossbow use, so check your state guidelines before purchase.
Best Cabela’s Pistol Deals
- Beretta 92 FS .22lr for $374.99, savings of $75. While not the standard 9mm model, Cabela’s is currently offering an exclusive Beretta 92 FS model with a 5.3 inch barrel, and a 15+1 capacity in standard configuration. Compliant models are also offered in states applicable.
- Kimber CSE pistols will also be for sale, saving $100 off the normal ticket price of $650 to $900. Kimber is often known for their reliability and performance, and with the CSE models, nothing different can be said. Offering selections in the popular 9mm, .45 Auto, and .380 Auto chamberings, there is something for every shooter in the somewhat compact, 7+1 design.
- Glock G43 with Night Sights for $549.99, a savings of $150. with a barrel length of just over 3 and a third inches, the G43 9mm is a steal for the price, and with the Glock’s reputation for reliability behind it, may make for an excellent concealed carry pistol. This is only helped by the TRUGLO night sights. Capacity for this pistol is set a 6+1.
Best Cabela’s Ammo and Accessories Deals
- Burris AR 332 for $349.00 . A solid sight choice for the aforementioned DPMS AR-15 model, this Burris sight offers decent scope range for the rifle, and with mail in rebate also comes with a free Fastfire Red Dot Sight, worth around $250.
- Leupold VX-6 3-18×50 Riflescope for $949.99, a $550 savings. One of the biggest and best names in rifle optics, Cabela’s offers a top of the line scope for mid-range prices. This is an excellent gift for the long range enthusiast.
- ADI .223 and .308 ammunitions for 20% off, at a cost of $10.39 to $17.59 per box.
- Winchester 9mm Luger Bulk Ammunition for $129.99 (a $40 savings).
- Cabela’s 18-gun cabinet for $189.99, an $80 savings. This cabinet offers plenty of storage for ammo, handguns and rifles at a great price, and includes a free pistol box. The cabinet itself allows for safe storage with a 3 point lock system.
