SHOT Show: New Bargain Guns for 2013

SHOT Show: New Bargain Guns for 2013

With so many new options rolled out at the 2013 SHOT Show, the task of picking out your perfect gun becomes a more complicated task than you may have anticipated. Weighing the pros and cons of each firearm in the hopes of narrowing your decision may be enough to make your head spin.

But if price is your determining factor, consider yourself lucky that we're around. After all, why break the bank when you can get a quality product for a competitive price? In order to make your search a little easier, we've has rounded up eight brand new bargain guns for 2013, straight from the SHOT Show floor.

CZ 612 Series

CZ-USAintroduced its new CZ 612 pump-action shotgun line at the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. Available in the Home Defense, Wildfowl Magnum and HC-P models, the 612 line is fitted for 3 1/2-, 3-, and 2 3/4-inch shells and has already been a part of several national championship competitions.

Price: $290-409

Kahr CW380

The Kahr CW380 is a smaller version of the Kahr P380, featuring a 2.58-inch barrel. Available at a more competitive price, the CW380 still includes all the features of a Kahr Arms pistol, including a conventional rifled barrel with integral rails mounted on the pistol's polymer frame, a slide that locks after the last round — a feature missing on many value-priced .380 pistols — and a drift adjustable white bar-dot combat rear sight and a pinned-in polymer front sight. Available in February-March, the CW380 will ship with one six-round magazine.

Price: $417

Remington Model 783

Proving once and for all that a super-accurate hunting rifle doesn't necessarily need to be expensive, Remington's Model 783 features a new CrossFire trigger system factory set at 3.5 pounds, though it's also user adjustable from 2.5 to 5 pounds. The Model 783 is also fitted with a SuperCell recoil pad, and is available in .270 Win., .30-06 Springfield, .308 Win. and 7mm Rem. Mag.

Price: $451

Ruger LC380

Ruger's latest concealed carry offering, the LC380, is built off the company's LC9 and features a light recoil spring which allows the slide to be easily manipulated, making it one of the lightest recoiling pistol in the Ruger family. The LC380 is also dovetailed with a 3-dot sight system, plus a loaded chamber indicator just in front of the rear sights.

Price: $449

Stoeger Uplander Longfowler

Engineered with 30-inch barrels and available in 12-gauge, the Stoeger Uplander Longfowler is ideal for the waterfolwer who needs to knock down a bird at the edge of the decoys. The Longfolwer comes with a stain-darkened hardwood stock and has the look and feel of the type of traditional waterfowl gun that our fathers and grandfathers grew up with. The Longfowler will be available this March.

Price: $449

Taurus Millennium G2

New from Taurus in 2013 is the Millenium G2 PT 111. Part of Taurus' Carry On Series, this 22-ounce 9mm sports a thin profile with a 3.2-inch barrel. The PT 111 includes a Picatinny rail and a loaded chamber indicator, and a 10+1-round mag capacity. The Millenium G2 is also available in a .40-caliber model, the PT 140.

Price: $350

TriStar Pistols

TriStar rolled out its line of competitively priced handguns at the 2013 SHOT Show. These Turkish-made pistols feature a popular Tanfoglio-based design and are manufactured at a NATO-approved factory that supplies pistols to 28 military forces across the world. TriStar pistols are shipped with a hard carrying case, two magazines, a gun lock and a cleaning kit, and are available in 9mm, .40 and .380.

Price: $419-429

TriStar Viper G2 Synthetic

TriStar's flagship firearm, the Viper G2, is available in a variety of gauges and finishes, but it's the Viper G2 Synthetic's price point that earns a spot on this list. Available in 12- or 20-gauge, the Viper G2 Synthetic features three Beretta/Benelli choke tubes, a fiber optic sight, and ships with a shim kit. Based on the Winchester SX3, the Viper G2 Synthetic can go up to 1,000 rounds between cleaning.

Price: $499
