Springfield Armory Introduces Saint with Free-Float Handguard

posted on June 13, 2017
Springfield Armory has added expanded its Saint series of AR-15 rifles to include a Free Float Handguard (FFH) model. 

The new Saint features Springfield's patent-pending FFH system, which offers a pinned low-profile gas block. This allows operators the ability to mount optics and accessories uninterrupted down the full length of the hard-anodized rail, while keeping it all sturdy and in place, unlike other systems that use set screws. And because the handguard has an M-Lok-compatible design, it is ideal for extensive customization. 

Elevation-adjustable, flip-up front sight, and dual aperture flip-up rear sight can be folded down or used to co-witness with optics. Bravo Company trigger guard and Bravo Mod 3 pistol grip surround the enhanced nickel-boron coated, single-stage GI trigger resulting in a crisp, grit-free break.

Upper and lower receivers are forged type III hard-anodized aircraft-grade 7075 T6 aluminum, locked together with Springfield's Accu-Tite system to defeat the shake and clatter that plagues many AR-15 rifles. The M16 bolt carrier group is precision-machined, the bolt made from Carpenter 158 steel, shot peened and magnetic-particle inspected for durability. The 16" barrel is premium chrome-moly vanadium steel with a 1:8" RH twist, chambered for 5.56 NATO (.223) to stabilize a wide range of ammunition types. Chamber, bore and exterior are all Melonite-treated.

Ample cheek weld comb, dense buttpad and tight rattle-free fit, make the six-position Bravo Company stock feel solid when shouldered. The mid-length gas system and H-style heavy tungsten buffer lessons felt recoil, for fast and accurate follow-up shots. Combat-refined pistol grip and trigger assembly promote an effective fighting position. Weight is 6 lbs. 9 oz. unloaded. 

MSRP: $1,049

Also, Springfield has announced its Summer 2017 Giveaways in which thousands of dollars worth of guns and gear are up for grabs. Check it all out at Springfield-Armory.com/resources/giveaways.
