Who is Rural King?
Rural King is like Walmart for rural America, selling everything a family would need to run a farm, ranch, or home in the “country”. Rural King sells everything from tractors, grills, and chainsaws, to livestock feed, lawnmowers, and cultivators. Now, Rural King has opened up a new section to their store, called RK GUNS, which sells dozens of different pistols, shotguns, rifles, and bows.
Rk Guns is a newer department in the Rural King storefront that sells every type of firearm we would need for any situation. This blog will focus on some of the great deals they offer for pistols and rifles while explaining how to get the best price for each gun. I will give two examples from each gun type to give you an idea of what RK Guns has to offer. To make it clear, Rural King is not developing weapons; instead, they sell guns from almost every major gun manufacturer at the lowest price on the market.
Savage Axis II 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle
Savage Arms has gotten a reputation for producing quality “starter rifles” that come in every caliber and at a very affordable price. I have shot many Savage Arms rifles and I think they have gotten a bad rap, based on the price they’re able to offer their customers. Would I buy a Savage over a Remington or Baraga? Absolutely not, but I can confirm that they produce very good rifles, capable of making every shot that comparable brands can make. I love the lightweight and low trigger pull of around 2-3 lbs. A 22″ barrel length gives the shooter enough to reach distances of up to 600 yards for expert shooters, which is phenomenal for the price they offer. The free-floating barrel gives this rifles reduced felt recoil and easy barrel changes if need be. One thing I can say with 100% certainty is you’ll never find a brand new rifle with these capabilities for this price.
|Savage Axis II 6.5 Creedmoor|
|Barrel Twist Rate||1 in 8″|
- Most affordable hunting rifle
- Great trigger pull weight
- Comes with scope
- The twist rate is capable of handling the heaviest rounds available
- The stock feels a little cheap
- It needs a lot of practice to get your MOA down to what it needs to be
- Inconsistent at further ranges
- Rugged synthetic stock
- Factory-mounted and bore-sighted 3-9x40mm Weaver scope
- Button-rifled, matte blued barrel
- Free-Floating Barrel
Why You Should Buy This Gun
This is the best starter hunting rifle on the market with a brand new rifle and scope for less than $400. If you’re new to hunting or need a back-up rifle, this would be an excellent choice for anyone. As I’ve mentioned before, this rifle may not come zeroed in at a sub 1.0 MOA, but with enough practice, you could zero your rifle in at 1.0 MOA at 100 yards.
Where Can I Buy A Savage Arms Hunting Rifle?
There are more than a few dozen places around the country to buy a Savage Arms hunting rifle, but we prefer a few places that we normally conduct business with. The first place, I would go to is Palmetto State Armory because they offer great Veteran discounts. The next place to go would be Brownells, due to their extensive supply of rifle parts, “Gun Guru” service, and their amazing warranty on all parts and guns sold. If you want to save the most money, you could always go to a bidding site, such as Gun Broker. You could find new and used guns for a lower price than you’d normally find at a major store. However, be aware of people taking advantage of you and there are no warranties or service guarantees. Finally, RK Guns is relatively new to gun sales, but they still keep the same great quality customer service that has been standard with Rural Kind for decades.
KIMBER 84M HUNTER 6.5 CREEDMOOR 22″ RIFLE
The Kimber 84M Hunter is the most affordable Kimber rifle they make at their factory, but I would never call this rifle cheap. The price is low, but the process they go through in making guns is the same as all Kimber rifles, meaning it comes with its sub MOA standard barrels. This rifle, chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor is capable of killing big game from Moose to Elk and every species of deer in North America. Weighing only 5.5 lbs and only 41.5″ long, this rifle is perfect for carrying over long distances and rough terrain.
|KIMBER 84M HUNTER 6.5 CREEDMOOR 22″ RIFLE|
|Barrel Twist Rate||8″|
- Sub MOA Accuracy, guaranteed
- The twist rate of 8″ allows for heavier rounds
- Amazing price for a new Kimber rifle
- One of the best triggers for a hunting rifle in the world
- Warranty issues reported
- Some feeding issues have been reported with multiple rifles
- The stock is not the best
- A detachable magazine for quick, easy loading and unloading
- FDE Composite stock
- Satin stainless steel barrel finish
- Stainless steel barrel and action
- Twist rate (right hand): 8″
- Adjustable match-grade trigger
- 3-position wing safety and Mauser-style claw extractor with controlled round feeding
Why You Should Buy This Gun
I would buy this rifle simply based on the name attached to it because I know when I buy a Kimber, it’s going to be a good product. Personally, if I were going to spend money like this on a rifle, I would spend an additional $500 and get the Kimber Hunter. Regardless of the feeding and extractor issues reported, I think that is more of an outlier than the norm for Kimber. I would buy this rifle if I were in the market for a lightweight, well-made hunting rifle under $700 that I know will work when I need it.
Where Should I buy the Kimber 84M Hunter
RK Guns is a great place to buy your rifles, pistols, and shotguns because they offer great prices, relative to their competitors. They offer no warranty because they are a 3rd-party seller, but they do offer help if you get a defective gun or you decide you don’t want it. Buying from Palmetto State Armory will give you the military or Veteran discount (if you’re a Vet). Palmetto State also offers a great warranty that ensures you’re getting the best possible product you could get.
Kimber Micro 9
The Kimber Micro 9mm is one of the best concealed carry pistols made anywhere in the world due to its size and capabilities. At 6″, this gun can fit in your waistband, ankle holster, under your jacket, or on your hip with incredible ease and comfort. You will not lose any mobility, comfort, or agility with carrying this gun and still trust that it works when you need it. RK Guns gives one of the best prices I have found anywhere, including Palmetto State, Brownells, and Gun Broker. There are many configurations that will make the price fluctuate from anywhere between $400-1,000, all depending on your needs and aesthetics.
|Kimber Micro 9|
|Trigger Pull Weight||7.0 lbs|
|Magazine Capacity||6 rounds|
- Incredibly light
- Small enough to carry anywhere
- Cheap to own
- Manual safety
- No adjustable trigger
- Ambidextrous safety
- Stainless Steel slide
- Stainless Steel Barrel
- Aluminum Frame
- Checkered grip for excellent control
Why You Should Buy This Gun
I would buy this gun if I needed a concealed carry 9mm and needed it for self-defense as law enforcement or personal defense in public. Kimber offers great guns from their pistols to their rifles and you know what you get with each of their firearms. If you put your life in the hands of Kimber, you won’t be disappointed and more importantly, you won’t worry about its reliability in your moment of need. As a police officer, this is a great secondary pistol you could use with an ankle holster. Due to the recoil and trigger pull weight, I do not recommend this gun for amateur shooters, unless you’re willing to put the time in to practice with it.

Glock 19 Gen 5
The Glock 19 is now the most popular handgun in the United States with hundreds of thousands sold and hundreds of thousands more being prepped for sale. RK Guns sells multiple configurations of the Glock 19 and all models are sold at a lower price than most other options from other sellers. The Gen 5 with aftermarket sights is a great gun with a confirmed history of reliability, durability, and performance. If you’re interested in learning more about the Glock 19, read this blog.
|Glock 19 Gen 5|

- The new finish will extend the life of the gun by years
- The new fingerless grip adds stability, accuracy, and comfort
- The new marksman barrel increases your range to at least 25 meters
- Stock sights are not very good
- Safety mechanism takes time to learn
Do RK Guns Offer a Warranty?
As far as I can tell, there is no warranty offered from RK Guns because they are a 3rd-party seller who does not manufacture guns. As tough as this seems to swallow for customers, this is standard practice by the majority of all companies, including Cabelas, and Gun Broker. The way to make sure you don’t get screwed over if you receive a defunct product is to inspect the gun before you make the FFL transfer. Once the transfer is complete, RK Guns will not accept returns.
What is RK Guns Price Match?
One of the best reasons to buy from RK Guns is knowing that no matter what, you’ll receive the best possible price from them, guaranteed. Rural King understands that every other company has sales and sometimes those sales undercut their price, so they make a promise that if you find a price for the same product at another store, they’ll match that price, regardless of the price difference. This is a great example of their commitment to offering the fairest possible price on all their products.
