Since its release in November 2016, the Springfield Armory Saint line of modern sporting rifles has grown to include several different models, including the Saint Victor. Now, the firm has unveiled the latest addition to this line of AR-15 rifles, with its first purpose-built, blowback, pistol-caliber carbine: the Saint Victor in 9 mm. Like its 5.56 NATO-chambered cousins, the Saint Victor in 9 mm features an upper and lower receiver made of forged 7075 T6 aluminum with Type III hardcoat anodized finishes. However, unlike the other Saint carbines, the new 9 mm carbine features a noticeably shorter front section on both, making it especially suited for the reduced length of the cartridge and magazines. It even features a shortened AR-15-style dust cover to fit the smaller ejection port.  

Attached to the upper receiver is a free-floated aluminum handguard, With M-Lok slots and SA locking tabs, surrounding a 16" CMV Melonite steel barrel with a 1:10" right-hand twist rate for the caliber. The barrel is topped off with a SA 9 mm Forward Blast Diverter muzzle device threaded on from the factory. The top of the upper receiver and handguard also feature sections of Picatinny rail running across the top, for mounting optics and the included set of low-profile, flip-up iron sights. For controls, the Saint Victor in 9 mm has nearly all identical controls as other standard AR-15 rifles, minus the inclusion of a forward assist. The charging handle and magazine release are of the standard AR-type, while the safety selector is bilateral. It also includes a nickel-boron-coated flat-face trigger.

For furniture, the carbines come wearing a B5 Systems Type 23 P-Grip and a Bravo stock on the six-position receiver extension. Depending on the position of the stock, the Saint Victor in 9 mm has an overall length ranging from 31.75" to 35", and has an unloaded weight of 6 lbs., 15 ozs. It feeds from double-stack Colt-pattern 32-round metal magazines, of which one is included with each carbine. The suggested retail price is $1,299.
