Bargain Hunting: Leupold and Nikon Riflescope Rebates

Both Leupold and Nikon are offering good rebates on select optics this month and for some time afterwards as well. So not only is it a great time to pick up some glass for your guns, you can even do a little comparison shopping.

Leupold is running a promotion on four VX-3 riflescopes, in 3.5×10-40mm or 4.5-14x40mm. You have your choice of standard or custom dials made to your rifle’s ballistic specifications. All the scopes come with a duplex reticle, although if you decide against the more expensive custom dials you can select other reticle styles with holdover marks, either Varmint Hunters or Boone and Crockett.Leupold riflescope rebate

Real-world prices for Leupold’s VX-3 scopes eligible for the rebate vary from about $440 to $600 and the rebate is good for $80. Purchases between now and Sept. 30 are eligible for the rebate, and you can see the other details and specifications of the promotion here.

Nikon's BDC reticleNikon’s promotion is considerably larger. While the rebate is smaller, $30, it is good with the purchase of any riflescope with Nikon’s BDC reticle. The reticle is a bullet-drop compensating design based on a duplex reticle with small openings along the bottom crosshair for easy adjustments for holdover without obscuring your target.

The rebate is valid with 44 Nikon scopes and isn’t limited to just riflescopes. The promotion covers handgun, shotgun, rimfire and even crossbow scopes across a wide range of prices, including scopes from their P-22, Monarch, Prostaff, Buckmasters, Inline XR, Coyote Special, Force XR and Bolt XR series of scopes. For the more tactically-inclined, the rebate also covers M-223, P-223 and M-308 riflescopes.

You can see a complete listing of the scopes eligible for the rebate and all Nikon’s promotion details here. Nikon’s rebate is also good for purchases made starting today through to Oct. 6.

Both companies are also running promotions on a few other things, including Leupold’s Cascades and Mojave binoculars, Nikon’s Prostaff 7 and Trailblazer binoculars, and other shooting accessories, including motion-detecting cameras and laser rangefinders.

Whether you’re gearing up for hunting season or squaring off your 3-gun kit these rebates will help you set up your firearms just the way you want, for less. There’re just bargains everywhere.
