Springfield Armory has announced the Saint Edge Pistol, combining the most popular features of the most premium ­Saint in the lineup with the compact shootability of a pistol platform.

Those familiar with the Saint Edge rifle will notice familiar features like a lightweight billet-machined lower receiver and the patent-pending full-length free float handguard. A 10.3” lightweight 1:8” twist CMV barrel, Maxim Defense CQB adjustable pistol brace round out the pistol’s premium features.

The pistol’s lower receiver, machined from aircraft grade 7075 T6 billet aluminum, features Springfield Armory’s proprietary adjustable Accu-Tite tension system, designed to eliminate movement between the upper and lower receivers. A crisp SA match short reset trigger system provides a competition-like trigger in a tactical platform. The flat-top upper receiver is Type lll hard-coat anodized 7075 T6 aluminum, with a forward assist and M4 feed ramps for reliable cycling. The enhanced M16 bolt carrier group is finished with super-hard Melonite and carries a premium 9310 HPT/MPI steel bolt, and the charging handle is Springfield Armory’s exclusive mid-size design for enhanced operation.


The patent-pending slim free-float aluminum handguard is M-Lok compatible for multiple mounting points for slings, lights and other equipment. An aluminum forward hand stop is included to keep your support hand clear of the muzzle. Under the handguard, a carbine-length, multi/mode adjustable gas block allows for tuning to specific ammo or suppressor use, and is pinned to the barrel for reliable operation, eliminating the concern of the block coming out of alignment.

The Edge Pistol also comes complete with front and rear spring loaded flip-up sights. The ½ MOA windage adjustable dual aperture rear sight, and ½ MOA elevation-adjustable front sight can be folded down or used to co-witness with optics.

The compact Saint Edge Pistol is just 24.6” with the brace collapsed, and weighs 5 lbs. 11.5 ozs. MSRP is $1,559
