Springfield® SAINTTM FDE AR-15 5.56 NATO/.223 Remington Semi-automatic Rifle
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 projectiles 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. The result is the feel of a competition trigger with the appropriate pull weight for a defensive rifle.
But what's on the outside counts too.
Unlike most AR-type rifles that leave the factory with standard mil-spec furniture, the SAINTTM includes meaningful upgrades across the board. The Bravo Company Mod 3 Pistol Grip offers a more vertical orientation designed to support a natural hold when shooting from the modern combat stance. The Bravo Company buttstock offers positive cheek weld areas, a rubber butt plate for traction, and both QD and fixed sling attachment points. Like the Accu-Tite receiver, it’s designed for tight, rattle-free operation in any of its six positions. The all new and exclusive Bravo PKMT two-piece FDE handguard covers aluminum heat shields but offers a super-slim profile. KeyMod attachment points allow placement of accessories according to your personal preference. In short, you’ll feel the difference.
