Springfield Armory's Duel 3 in Full Swing


Get in on this, guys and gals. Springfield Armory's going wild.

Sept. 19 marks the company's third duel in their Duel 3 promotion. In this firearm face-off, Springfield's new 4-inch XD Mod.2 is going up against the 1911 LW Champion Operator. Which one do you think will win?

0919 - Week 3 Duel

The company's deemed Sept. 16's Duel 3 promotion as "Wild Wednesday," and it gave away 25 brand-new Springfield XD-S 4-inch .45 ACP handguns, totaling more than $14,000. On Sept. 23, Springfield will hand out 50 more of its 4-inch XD-S pistols.

This promotion marked the halfway point of Springfield's Duel 3 giveaway, which is the largest gun giveaway ever offered.

"To date, we've given away almost $63,000 worth of product," said Chad Dyer, marketing manager for Springfield Armory. "Basically, we wanted to give our customers a chance to have some fun, and we wanted to reward them. We also wanted to integrate other manufacturers, and they seemed pretty excited about it."

In addition to the XDs, winners will also receive a Pro-Shot universal cleaning kit.
