Springfield® SAINTTM AR-15 5.56 NATO/.223 Remington Semi-automatic Rifle with Free Float Handguard
Springfield® believes it's every American's right to own a capable personal defense rifle. To that end, they took aim at the sub-$1,000 AR-15 market…and blew everything in the price range out of the water. As the ultimate refinement of the "everyman" AR-15, the SAINTTM combines innovations like the Accu-Tite receiver mating system with the perfection of the platform's hallmark features.
The quality of a rifle begins with its foundation. That’s why the extra-tough Type III aircraft-grade 7075 T6 aluminum upper and lower receivers are joined using the Accu-Tite system, ensuring a solid fit that eliminates rattle and shake. The 16" barrel is treated with Melonite®, and features a 1:8" twist rate for total ammo flexibility - the SAINT will handle heavy 80-grain and ultralight projective with equal ease. Inside the upper receiver is a full-auto-weight M16 bolt carrier group machined from Carpenter 158 steel. Each and every one is shot peened and magnetic particle inspected for long-term durability. Completing the foundation, the SAINT features micro-polished trigger components treated with nickel boron for extra smoothness.
The new SAINT AR-15 with Free Float Handguard elevates performance to the next level, with a patent-pending Free Float Handguard system that accepts almost unlimited M-Lok customization. It’s pinned low-profile gas block makes wobbly set-screw blocks obsolete. The elevation-adjustable, flip-up front sight, and dual aperture flip-up rear sight can be folded down or utilized to co-witness with optics.
