Springfield Armory’s Saint line of AR-15-style firearms launched in late 2016 with one delta-ring-equipped rifle, and expanded considerably the following year when the more lavishly featured, but pricier, Edge series of guns was announced. For 2019, the company has introduced a third line of Saint rifles, called the Victor series, to bridge the gap between the two existing product lineups. Offered in 5.56x45 mm NATO as a 16" carbine, an 11.5" NFA-applicable short-barreled rifle and a 7.5" pistol, and in .300 Blackout as a 9" pistol, the Victors all feature 7075-T6 hard-coat-anodized aluminum receivers with Springfield’s Accu-Tite tension-adjustment system, M-Lok-compatible free-floating handguards and a flat, nickel boron-coated single-stage trigger. Both pistol models utilize a compact SB Tactical SBX-K pistol brace in place of a buttstock. springfield-armory.com
