Springfield Armory has announced the new Saint Pistol in 5.56 mm, with upgraded features designed to make it an ideal firearm for home protection and personal defense. Introductory MSRP is $849.


The Saint Pistol features a balanced 9.6″ chrome moly vanadium barrel that maximizes ballistic performance while still offering compact dimensions. 

The barrel is fully Melonite coated for both durability and corrosion resistance, and the forged 7075 T6 upper and lower receiver ensure strength for the lifetime of the gun. Additionally, its M16 bolt carrier group, machined from Carpenter 158 steel, is shot peened and magnetic particle inspected for long-term durability.

The upper receiver has an optics-ready, flat-top design. In addition, the pistol features a pinned Picatinny rail-topped steel gas block that allows the pistol to accept iron sights of a shooter’s choice. Springfield Armory’s Accu-Tite tension system ensures a tight lock-up between the upper and lower receiver.

An exclusive BCMGunfighter PMCR two-piece handguard with M-LOK-compatible attachment points features aluminum heat shields and a built-in handstop for comfort and safety. This pairs up with a BCMGunfighter Mod. 3 pistol grip for exceptional handling. The Saint Pistol weighs in at only 5½ lbs. unloaded and measures 25.75” to 28.25” long.
