Editor’s Choice: Springfield Armory Saint Victor 9 mm Carbine

Springfield’s Saint family of AR-pattern rifles and pistols has steadily expanded from one delta ring-equipped SKU in 2016 to a comprehensive line today that encompasses many chamberings, barrel lengths and feature sets—with the mid-tier Victor series, in particular, growing by leaps and bounds and arguably offering the most value.

Now, for the first time ever, Springfield has added a 9 mm Luger-chambered pistol-caliber carbine to its roster of Saints: the blowback-operated Saint Victor 9 mm Carbine.

Built on a matching pair of shortened forged 7075-T6 aluminum receivers and feeding from 32-round, Colt-pattern, metal magazines.

The 9 mm Carbine features a 16" Melonite-treated barrel capped with a Forward Blast Diverter muzzle device, a free-floating aluminum handguard, B5 Systems furniture, bilateral safety selectors and a nickel-boron-coated, flat-faced trigger.

Double Check Before Hitting That Purchase Button

Fake websites are one of the biggest scams and a painful reminder to slow down, particularly during the holiday season, and double check before hitting that purchase button when online. Ammo, gear and even firearms are not immune to the growing trend.
