If you want an AR pistol that packs a serious punch, Springfield has an answer for you with its brand new SAINT Victor Pistol chambered in .308 Winchester.
The AR-10-based rifle is designed for defensive use, Springfield says, and features an HPT (High Pressure Tested) MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspected) bolt to confidently handle a heavy round count.
“The SAINT Victor Pistol in .308 gives shooters a premium featured AR pistol that delivers serious power in a small, lightweight and easily maneuverable platform,” says Steve Kramer, Springfield Armory’s Vice President of Marketing. “If you want a SAINT Pistol that offers more power than 5.56, then this is the one for you.”
The barrel is finished in Melonite and the gun features a pinned low profile gas block. The flat, single-stage trigger has an enhanced nickel boron coating.
The new SAINT has a 10.3-inch barrel and measures at just over 28-inches overall with the SB Tactical SBA3 five-position brace fully collapsed.
Other features include a BCM Gunfighter Mod 3 pistol grip, a 20-round Magpul PMAG Gen M3 magazine, a patented free float M-Lok handguard, and an SA 2-Piece Blast Diverter on the muzzle. All this combined “easily tames the .308 cartridge while remaining handy and compact,” Springfield says.
The forged lower receiver features Springfield Armory’s Accu-Tite Tension System for a tight, zero-movement fit with the forged upper, and the Picatinny rail allows you to mount the optic of your choice. For iron sight use, the slim, interrupted free-float handguard has Picatinny rail at the muzzle to mount a front sight.
