The Ultimate Firearms Destination for the Gun Lifestyle

Amazon Prime Day Gun Gear Deals (2023)

Catch the gun gear deals going off during Amazon Prime Days, stock up and save some cash.

Amazon isn’t the top destination for most shooters’ gun-buying needs. True enough, you can pick up air guns there, including the dead-serious pre-charged pneumatics. But that’s about the extent of the mega-retailer’s arsenal. No shotguns, no rifles, no handguns, no ammo.

That said, Amazon does tend to offer a pretty decent array of firearms accessories and gunsmithing tools, not to mention other odds and ends shooters find handy. Riflescopes, torque drivers, ear pro, among other offerings are fair game and generally come in at a passably fair price. This is particularly true if you are a Prime member and get to take advantage of that sweet, sweet free shipping. And there’s no better time to put that membership to use and load up on firearms gear at Amazon than Prime Days.

We came up with some of our top picks of Amazon gun gear for the sale, which if you’re impatient, you can just jump forward to. But if you’re unfamiliar with the retailer’s annual summer sale, we’ll give you a quick primer below.

What The Hell Are Prime Days?

Basically, the stretch—running July 11-12 this year—serves up some of the best deals Amazon puts forth in the calendar year. Of course, there is a catch—you must be a Prime member. Like it or not, that’s many of us if not most of us anymore. But if you aren’t, don’t let this dissuade you from checking out the gear below or the sale itself—there is a work arounds if you find something you can’t live without. Namely, Amazon offers a free 30-day Prime trial—which you can cancel anytime. No fuss, no muss.

Amazon Prime Day Gun Gear Picks

ATN Thor LT Thermal Rifle Scope 160 3-6x

Prime Days ATN

Thermal rifle scopes have been pretty hot lately, but not everyone can afford to buy one at their typical prices. If you feel that you’ve been missing out and want to dip your toe into the thermal optic world too, this heavily discounted ATN Thor LT may be the most affordable way for you to accomplish that. Will it be the best thermal scope you can get? Probably not, but if all you want to do try some night hunting, the 3-6x magnification and 475-yard maximum detection range should get the job done. The scope mounts via traditional 30mm scope rings, has a rechargeable battery with an advertised 10-hour runtime and it features both black hot and white hot color palettes.

ucho 34dB Slim Noise Shooting Ear Protection

Prime Days ucho

Are these Chinese knockoffs of Howard Leight Impact Sport earmuffs? Undoubtedly. Are they worse? Almost certainly. But when the originals have an MSRP of $95, it’s understandable why not every shooter has a pair. If you’ve been looking for the most affordable set of electronic shooting hearing protection that you can buy, this is it. They have an advertised Noise Reduction Rating of 34dB, which is great assuming it’s an accurate measurement, but above all it’s hard to argue with the price if you’ve just been wanting to give electronic hearing protection a try.

Vikeri Mini Trail Camera

Prime Days Vikeri

There are lots of great uses for trail cameras, and it can be a good idea to have one lying around even if you’re not an avid hunter. This Vikeri Mini is on a pretty decent discount and seems to have all the features one would want in a trail camera. The camera is motion activated and only has a 0.2 second delay once triggered. It monitors in a 120-degree wide angle and can detect motion from up to 65 feet away. It’s also capable of capturing either 20MP HD pictures or 1080P videos. Whether you’re trying to find game or you just want to keep an extra set of eyes on your property, this is a good tool to have.

Pohaku 13 in 1 Pocket Multitool

Prime Days Pohaku copy

A multitool is always useful to have around, but the best ones are quite expensive. If you’ve wanted one that you could beat up, throw around and lose without worrying about it, this deal is worth a look. Besides having a typical pocket knife blade, the Pohaku also features needle nose pliers, standard pliers, wire cutters, a can opener, two files, three screwdrivers, a rope cutter, a saw and a serrated knife. Not bad for $14, and it even comes with a storage pouch and can be operated by just one hand.

Barska 18-36x50mm Spotting Scope

Prime Days Barska

If you do any kind of target shooting at ranges beyond what the naked eye can see, you’re going to be walking downrange to check your hits more often than necessary. The remedy is a spotting scope, and if you don’t already have one, this deal is a good time to change that. For a reasonable price, this Barska offers just about everything you’d want in a basic spotting scope. It has a generous objective lens of 50mm, a magnification range of 18-36x and is completely waterproof and fog proof. It also comes with an extendable sunshade, a tabletop tripod, a lens cover and a carrying case.

Blackhawk Omnivore Holster

Prime Days Blackhawk

Maybe not the perfect holster for everyone, but the Blackhawk Omnivore makes having multiple pistols a lot easier. Designed to fit almost any pistol, the Omnivore comes in three styles – built for pistols with 1913 Picatinny rails, pistols with SureFire X300 lights, and pistols with Stream Light TLR 1 & 2 lights. Built to use the railing or lights for the locking retention, the Omnivore can eat almost anything and keep it secure. Dedicated holsters are generally a little better, but this is a great “do all” that wildly reduces the number of holsters you need to have on hand to shoot your armory.

Mantis X3 Shooting Performance System

Prime Days Mantis

Training is not optional, but it can be expensive and hard to find time for. Dry fire is a great way of improving and maintaining skills without having to go to the range or spend ammo on money. But there is a way to make dry fire even more useful, that is the Mantis X3. Combined with the Mantis app, this system senses and tracks everything your firearm does during dry fire and live fire. This gives you a complete record of your grip, handling, aim, recoil, follow-through, and a ton more. Works with iOS and Andriod, the Mantis X3 is a huge step forward for anyone looking to improve their skills.

Wheeler Manual Firearms Accurizing Torque Wrench

Prime Days Wheeler Driver

Just about every screw on every firearm has a torque rating. You might not always know what that rating is, but at some point, someone gave it one. This is especially true for mounting optics on rifles and pistols. Those little screws are sensitive, and the difference between goodly tight and stripped is smaller than you might think! One of the first fundamental tools a gun owner should have after a cleaning kit is a decent torque wrench measured in inch-pounds. Wheeler’s F.A.T. Wrench is a great buy. You get the wrench, some common bits, and a nice little plastic case that will keep your new tool safe at the range or in the shop.

Wheeler Engineering Gunsmithing Screwdriver Set

Prime Days Wheeler Screwdriver

Most of us already have at least some tools, but those aren’t always the same as gunsmithing tools. First off, tools built for guns are hollow-ground for a better fit in the parts. Not as big of a deal with most modern guns, but a huge deal for anything made 30ish or more years ago. Secondly, there are a lot of common firearms that take special tools. Not all of them, but a good number. Ever try working on a revolver without the right tools? It’s not fun! Wheeler’s set of 89 bits is a great place to start that should cover most bases, even some of the less common but still widely made firearms like S&W and Ruger revolvers.
