On The Range: Springfield Armory Saint Edge ATC Elite

posted on January 21, 2022

Springfield Armory expanded its AR-15 lineup late in 2021 with an all-new rifle featuring a monolithic lower receiver its calling the Accurized Tactical Chassis (ATC), which provides a dedicated precision-shooting platform while still maintaining commonality with many AR-15 components.

The unique monolithic lower receiver is machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and ensures the barreled upper-receiver assembly is separated from the lower receiver and fire-control components to maximize accuracy. Paired with this monolithic lower is an upper receiver complete with an 18" Ballistic Advantage barrel complete with a 1:7" twist rate and chambered in .223 Wylde.

At the muzzle is a Springfield Armory brake to reduce recoil, and each rifle is also equipped with Springfield's Accu-Tite Plus system, which eliminates play between the two receiver halves. The guns come with a B5 Systems pistol grip and stock, and two different precision stocks are offered, depending on the model. A SOPMOD stock ships with the all-black Edge ATC, while the Elite model is equipped with a B5 Precision stock.

In each gun, you'll also find a LaRue Tactical Flat Two-Stage Trigger. The standard Edge ATC retails at a suggested MSRP of $1,549, while the Elite model retails for $1,899. Both models ship with a 20-round Magpul PMag. For more information, visit springfield-armory.com.
