New from Springfield Armory is the Tungsten Gray SAINT Victor 5.56mm, combining purpose-built performance with a unique and appealing Cerakote color option. Applied to the upper and lower forged 7075 T6 aluminum receivers as well as the free-float M-Lok handguard, the Tungsten Gray Cerakote finish gives this SAINT Victor a distinctive look as well as added protection.
As with all SAINT Victors, this new variant features intelligently thought-out performance upgrades for professional grade reliability. Enhancements include a premium nickel boron trigger, Melonite-coated barrel, enhanced Melonite-coated carrier group and a pinned low-profile gas block. This specific model features a B5 Systems Type 23 P-Grip and B5 Systems Enhanced SOPMOD collapsible stock for enhanced control and performance.
The bolt carrier group employs a heavy-duty M16-pattern bolt carrier along with a 9310 steel bolt, featuring high-pressure testing/magnetic particle inspection (HPT/MPI). In addition, the SAINT Victor rifle comes outfitted with SA spring-loaded flip-up iron sights that are adjustable for windage and elevation. Topping off the 1:8” twist 16” CMV steel barrel is the SA Muzzle Brake, designed to simultaneously reduce muzzle rise and soften perceived recoil.
“With a proven track record of performance, the SAINT Victor family of AR-pattern firearms has a hard-earned reputation as duty-ready carbines,” said Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “With this new Tungsten Gray version, Victor fans have a new option that will not only turn heads, but also perform when it counts.” The Tungsten Gray SAINT Victor comes with a 30-round Magpul PMAG Gen M3™ magazine, and has an MSRP of $1,179.
