Compact, fast-handling, combat grade 5.56 platforms for LE and Civilian use.

Springfield Armory’s SAINT AR-15 series has expanded to include the new SAINT and SAINT EDGE SBR, featuring 11.5” barrels – selected as the best balance between length and ballistic performance of the 5.56 cartridge.

The SAINT SBR with a forged lower receiver, and the SAINT EDGE SBR with a lightened billet lower, include a free-float handguard, featuring Springfield’s proprietary attachment system. With four attachment points anchoring it to the barrel nut, this M-Lok compatible handguard was designed to withstand the hard use of law enforcement and military operations. Under the handguard is Springfield’s pinned multi/mode adjustable gas block for suppressed or unsuppressed use.

Other features include a light-weight profiled 11.5” CMV barrel with A2 flash hider on the SAINT EDGE, and a government profiled version on the SAINT. Both are Melonite finished inside and out for corrosion resistance, with an optimal 1:8 twist.

Each of these short-barreled rifles are machined from aircraft grade 7075 T6 aluminum and are Type III hard coat anodized. The lower receivers are equipped with the Accu-Tite tension system, to reduce movement between the upper and lower receivers. No corners were cut on the MPT (magnetic particle tested) enhanced M16 bolt carrier group – the heart of any premium AR. This BCG is finished with super-hard Melonite and carries a 9310 steel bolt.

Upgrades on the SAINT EDGE include a billet lower with QD mounts machined into the receiver, and weight reducing cuts that lighten it by two ounces. More features include an ambidextrous 90-degree safety, and an extended mid-sized charging handle. The trigger is an exclusive proprietary short-reset single stage design, while the GI trigger on the SAINT SBR is nickel boron coated for a smooth and grit-free feel. You can also find a Bravo Company stock, pistol grip, and Magpul Gen M3 PMAG on these combat grade short-barreled rifles.

 

SAINT SBR MSRP: $1049

SAINT EDGE SBR MSRP: $1299
