Right in the beginning of the game, Dennis tells you it's important to take radio towers because you can get guns for free in stores as a result. He's awfully unspecific as to how exactly this works, though.

Does each radio tower you enable, regardless of location, make free your bottom-most not-free tier of weapons, or do specific towers make specific weapons free, or what?

Furthermore, does taking over the towers have any effect on which weapons unlock (but still cost money) or which customization options are available for weapons?

I found a tower weapon unlock list here:

Radio Towers reward you with free weapons and items and they also unlock nearby Supply Drop missions. You’re rewarded with free weapons based on the amount of Radio Towers you’ve unlocked, not by the specific Radio Tower itself. This means that if you want a specific weapon, you can just go for the quickest/easiest route to get there, without having to do a specific tower the other side of the map. The below weapons have been placed into categories along with how many Radio Towers you need to get them for free.
