New for 2020: Springfield Armory SAINT Pistols

posted on January 17, 2020
Springfield Armory announced it will be growing the SAINT family with three new pistol variations in spring 2020. Here’s a few words from Springfield Armory Vice President of Marketing Steve Kramer had this to say about what’s to come, “We wanted to give our customers an early ‘sneak peek’ at some exciting new SAINT pistols we have been developing over the past year. Each brings something innovative to the Springfield Armory line-up, and offers exciting new options for all of the SAINT fans out there.”

Joining the SAINT Edge line of lightweight, quick-handling, high-performance rifles is the all-new EVAC, an AR-15-style pistol designed for discreet, compact storage. The 5.56 NATO-chambered pistol features a patent-pending ratchet barrel takedown system engineered for rapid deployment while aiding in the pistol’s compactness in addition to Springfield outsourcing to Gear Head Works for its Tailhook MOD 1 side-folding arm brace and Law Tactical for its Gen-3-M adapter. The SAINT Edge EVAC pistol ships with a storage bag.


AR aficionados looking for a .308 Win.-chambered pistol need look no further, as Springfield Armory is set to deliver its SAINT Victor .308 pistol in spring 2020. This .30-cal. semi-automatic pistol features a 10.3” barrel and measures in at an overall length of 28”, and that’s with the included SB Tactical SBA3 five-position arm brace. Fully featured, the SAINT Victor .308 will include a BCMGUNFIGHTER Mod 3 pistol grip, M-LOK handguard and Springfield’s Blast Diverter muzzle device.

To round out the new pistol additions will be the SAINT Edge PDW Pistol, a 5.5”-barreled AR-based pistol was designed completely around personal defense. This all new SAINT variant features a Maxim Defense SCW brace, Reptilla CQG pistol grip and will ship with a Magpul 20-round PMAG. Adding all of the included features together equates to a pistol with an overall length of 18.75”.
