Springfield Armory's Duel 3 in Full Swing
September 16, 2015
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?
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.
In addition to the giveaway, Springfield is also sponsoring its Gear Up & Go promotion, which runs until the end of December 2015. Any purchase of a Springfield XD, XD Mod.2, XD(M), XDS or 1911 handgun will include a free two extra magazines, a dual-pistol range bag and a double-mag pouch.
