Springfield Introduces SAINT and SAINT EDGE SBRs

Springfield Introduces SAINT and SAINT EDGE SBRs

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

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
