Springfield Armory has expanded its Saint AR-15 series to include the all-new Saint and Saint Edge SBR, featuring 11.5” barrels, designed to optimize performance of the 5.56 cartridge.

The Saint SBR and the Saint Edge SBR feature a free-float handguard and Springfield’s proprietary attachment system—four attachment points that anchoring it to the barrel nut. The M-Lok-compatible handguard was designed to withstand the hard use of law enforcement and military operations. Under the handguard is Springfield’s pinned multi/mode adjustable gas block for suppressed or unsuppressed use.

Adding to the accuracy is a lightweight profiled 11.5” CMV barrel with A2 flash hider on the Saint Edge, and a government-profiled version on the Saint. Barrels are Melonite-finished to foster corrosion resistance, and have a 1:8” twist rate. Each of these short-barreled rifles are machined from aircraft grade 7075 T6 aluminum and are Type III hard-coat anodized; lower receivers are equipped with the Accu-Tite tension system, which reduces movement between the upper and lower receivers. No corners were cut on the MPT (magnetic particle tested) enhanced M16 bolt carrier group—considered the heart of any premium AR. This BCG is finished with super-hard Melonite and carries a 9310 steel bolt.

Upgrades on the Saint Edge include a billet lower with QD mounts machined into the receiver and weight reducing cuts that lighten it by two ounces. An ambidextrous 90-degree safety and extended mid-sized charging handle add features that are popular among tactical shooters. The trigger is an exclusive proprietary short-reset single stage design, with a crisp and precise feel, while the GI trigger on the Saint SBR is nickel boron coated for a smooth and grit-free feel.

A Bravo Company stock, pistol grip and Magpul Gen M3 PMAG are also right at home on these combat grade short-barreled rifles.
