Springfield Armory expanded its SAINT Victor pistol lineup with a short-action option chambered for the hard-hitting .308 Win. This .30-cal. offering more than doubles the muzzle energy produced by the company's similarly sized SAINT Victor chambered for the 5.56, enabling owners to have more power in a compact, easily transportable package.

“The SAINT Victor Pistol in .308 gives shooters a premium-featured AR pistol that delivers serious power in a small, lightweight and easily maneuverable platform,” said Steve Kramer, Springfield Armory’s vice president of marketing. “If you want a SAINT Pistol that offers more power than 5.56, then this is the one for you.”

To keep the gun compact without sacrificing much in the way of muzzle energy and velocity, the Springfield Armory SAINT Victor .308 pistol is outfitted with a 10.3" barrel machined from chrome-moly vanadium steel. At the other end of the gun, the pistol is outfitted with a collapsible, five-position SBA3 pistol-stabilizing brace from SB Tactical. With the brace collapsed, the gun measures just 28" from end to end.

Each Springfield Armory SAINT Victor .308 Pistol is outfitted with a pinned, low-profile gas block hidden underneath a free-float handguard outfitted with M-LOK attachment slots. The gun includes a nickel-boron-coated single-stage flat trigger, as well as a Bravo Company BCM Gunfighter Mod 3 pistol grip.

At the muzzle end of the gun, consumers will find a two-piece blast diverter designed and built by Springfield Armory. This unique feature directs muzzle blast downrange and also aids in optimizing the gas system and ensuring the gun runs reliably.

The bolt in each Springfield Armory SAINT Victor .308 Pistol has been high-pressure tested and magnetic-particle inspected to ensure it can withstand heavy use. The Melonite-finished barrel also adds corrosion- and wear-resistant properties to the gun.

Other features included on the Springfield Armory SAINT Victor .308 Pistol include the company's Accu-Tite tension system, a mil-spec charging handle, single-side selector switch, integral trigger guard and a forward handstop. The gun is built with a carbine-length gas system and uses a Carbine "H" Heavy Tungsten Buffer. Unloaded, the gun weighs in at 8 lbs., 6 ozs., and each pistol ships with a 20-round Magpul PMAG.

Suggested retail pricing on the Springfield Armory SAINT Victor .308 Pistol is $1,363. For more information, visit springfield-armory.com.
